For the NGO

Why the Analytics Academy?

We try to inspire everyone to do the things that inspire them. We do this by building a platform to connect data-wise students with non-profits. This way, the non-profits will be more effective (in inspiring people), while the students form a steady foundation of their practices.

How does the Analytics Academy work?

The Analytics Academy is a great opportunity for organisations to discover how the analysis of data can benefit them. Since NGO’s and social organisations are usually not able to obtain high-quality advice based on data analyses, we create that ability! On the other hand, we offer econometrics students the opportunity to engage socially as well as to enhance their data-consultancy skills. 

Moreover, trainings of leading consultancy firms facilitate a comprehensive development process for our students. In this matter, the interests of non-profits and students are brought together and a win-win situation is created!

What does the Analytics Academy do?

During a period of 10 weeks, the most dedicated and enthusiastic students engage in a project for a non-profit organization. The project round kicks off with the Kick-off, in which the partner organizations pitch their project, to encourage students to sign up for their specific project. At the end of the project, the student-analysts pitch their findings to the organisation at the Kick-out.

Furthermore, they form a constructive advice based on the data analyses.

Practical information

  • Each project group consists of 4 motivated students, who each work 4-6 hours per week for the client. Each group has 1 senior analyst, who acts as chairman and contact person to the partner organization. These senior analysts either have experience in the field of independent research, or have done a project for the Analytics Academy before.
  • There are two project rounds per year; the first from September to December, the second from February to June. In general, the analysts will tackle the issue of the organization within 10 weeks.
  • The costs for participation for organisations are EUR 250 excl. VAT/BTW.

Examples of completed projects:

  • A project for Paradiso, in which the relationship between type of drink sale and type of event has been investigated in order to be able to purchase and offer optimally.
  • Project for the Ambulance IJsselland, where the travel time from an ambulance to an accident has been shortened.
  • Project for Stadschouwburg Amsterdam, which is given the ability to generate extra income and search specifically for new members with the help of ticket price optimization and member analysis.
