The central purpose of the Centre for Business Analytics is to contribute broadly and deeply to knowledge and practice in analytics. To aid this purpose, we provide seed funding ranging from $5K-$20K to research projects across the University of Melbourne.

Topics of research include developing new text-mining techniques, new security analytics methods, understanding the shareholder value of investments in analytics, developing new customer lifetime value models and optimising supply chains.

Projects conducted by our Academic Fellows include:
