What Our Clients Say:

"I have a large database with multiple physiological measures and I have been looking for people who could help me analyze it and explain the statistics. The D2K student consultants and faculty mentors did a variety of experiments to see what kind of analytics could work on the data. The whole consulting experience was very exciting and productive. They got results just in time for me to publish the findings in a research article."

-- Victoria Harrison, Director & Clinical Consultant, Center for the Study of Natural Systems and the Family

“I was working on a complex problem, which was to predict maintenance costs for my company. We spend close to 1.6 billion on maintenance every year, so finding a way to forecast costs for next year and to optimize the spending is very important. Dr. Su Chen was very helpful in explaining the consulting process. Two student consultants did a great job working with me and sent me a very comprehensive report. I'm very happy with the consultation and what has been done overall. I would recommend the D2K Consulting Clinic to my MBA cohorts and any business professionals who have data challenges.”

-- Olaseni Olaleye, Professional MBA ’22, Analytics and Productivity Manager at Dow
