As well as research, we support the use of 1000minds for teaching.

The skills students develop while learning about Multi-Criteria Decision-Making (MCDM, also known as Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis, MCDA) and Conjoint Analysis are very useful (see famous quotes).

Also, students tell us and their teachers that the practical nature of using 1000minds Decision-Making and/or 1000minds Conjoint Analysis tools themselves – to make decisions and/or perform marketing research (e.g. class project) – is fun!

We’ll send you a dedicated URL for your students to quickly enrol for their own user accounts so they can use 1000minds themselves.

1000minds is used for teaching (and research) in many universities worldwide in various disciplines, such as:

  • Decision Analysis
  • Master of Business Administration (MBA)
  • Environmental Studies
  • Engineering
  • Information Science
  • Economics
  • New Product Design
  • Marketing Research
  • Political Science
  • Public Policy

Our teaching license fee schedule – which we’re told is very reasonable – is based on the size of your class. Please contact us to arrange a teaching license.

Or if your institution doesn’t have funding available for a license, contact us to request a teaching award, and we’ll send you an application form. Applications are usually approved quickly, but in the meantime you can started with a free trial immediately.
