Quantitative & Qualitative Data

Is there something you can see in your data but not understand why it shows as it does?
Does your companies data look good, but in practice it doesn’t give the result according to your calculations? By joining this project you invite in our Data Analyst students to explore data related to your users, both qualitative and quantitative. The students will deliver insights answering how you can improve your product or service by understanding the human behind using it.


About this project

The students will practice the fundamental distinction between two types of data, qualitative and quantitative. Many questions can be answered by looking at the data alone – but in many cases you need the bigger picture with interviews and qualitative feedback from users/customers to get the full picture.

By data analyzes and user tests/interviews the students will scope key challenges and opportunities in connection to your business. Based on the learnings gathered from the qualitative (interviews) data and quantitative (data analysis) data, the insights will be translated into project solutions within your business.  

This is how it works

    All full-time programs in Stockholm and Karlskrona are divided into several projects, and in some of the projects, the students work with real clients on real briefs. The learning objectives, topics, length and start dates vary between the different projects. Find the project that matches your organization’s needs, and follow the steps to apply to become a Learning Partner.

    We will review your brief to make sure it meets the needs of the student learning experience and is aligned with the program objectives and learning outcomes of the specific project.

  • 3

    If your brief is chosen we’ll set you up so you are ready till when you start collaborating with the group of students, which could be anywhere from a team of 4-7 students all the way to our cross-program briefs with over 200 students.

    During the project, your main contact is the student group. You will collaborate with them as you would with a creative agency; having meetings, check-ins, workshops and preparing the needed data and insights from your organization. A typical project span 4-8 weeks.

    The desired outcome and expected delivery differ between the different projects. For example, it could be a creative concept, a strategy, a mockup, a prototype, an analysis or a workshop or the outcomes of a design sprint.
