WHAT YOU’LL DO

Project Leaders play a key role on client engagements, managing studies to define client needs and supervising research activities to obtain relevant data.

Project Leaders oversee the formulation of hypotheses for research and investigation, and the advanced financial analysis of client, competitor, and industry data.
