To all faculty interested in undergraduate data analytics:
Join us in May 2018 at Manhattan College for the Fourth Annual Business Analytics Competition & Conference!
Every spring, Manhattan College hosts a Business Analytics Competition (BAC@MC), an exciting opportunity for undergraduate students studying Business Analytics or related fields to test their knowledge and hone their skills. Competing teams engage in the "art & science" of decision-making as well as practice their ability to draw business insight from a comprehensive analysis of relevant data. A total of 48 teams from 25 different institutions from the US, Canada and Palestine have participated in the past three events.
Phase 1 of this year's competition will officially start on February 5th when competition materials will be shared with registered teams (2 to 4 undergraduate students are allowed in each team). Phase 2 includes a poster presentation as well as a Hackathon night which will take place May 21-23 on our campus in Riverdale. For more information on previous competitions as well as this year's keynote speakers, please check out the competition website at: www.manhattan.edu/bac or refer to the attached flyer.
While the registration remains open until March 16th, register your student team NOW to make sure you have enough time with the data! Looking forward to hosting your team at BAC@MC 2018 in May!
