Analytics for Good Institute Model
Data Analytics to Advance Your Mission
The Analytics for Good Institute is currently seeking partner organizations across government, nonprofit, and business sectors. We also welcome inquiries from mission-driven foundations looking to amplify their impact. Our engagement model is built around two kinds of projects:
Business Analytics Consulting
Home to a top graduate program in analytics, the Carlson School teaches students how to use data to solve real problems. Sponsoring a project in the Carlson Analytics Lab provides valuable experiential learning for students and real results for your business or organization.
