The final project of CS504049 aims to provide students with a hands-on experience in applying the concepts, tools, and techniques learned throughout the course to solve real-world business challenges. Students will be asked to choose a dataset from a variety of sources, clean and prepare the data, and then use a business intelligence tool to create visualizations, dashboards, reports, and support decision-making activity. The goal of the project is an opportunity for students to showcase their skills in collecting, analyzing, and visualizing data to generate valuable insights that drive strategic decision-making.
