Every spring, The O'Malley School of Business hosts the Business Analytics Competition & Conference at Manhattan College (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 and science of decision-making as well as practice their ability to draw business insight from a comprehensive analysis of relevant data.
Microsoft is hosting the participants for a networking event in their state-of-the-art facilities in Times Square. Competing teams will have the opportunity to display the competition posters and network with data science professionals in New York City
Faculty advisors attending the conference will constitute the set of phase-one judges. Phase-one scores will be based on the ratings given by faculty advisors (advisors will not be asked to evaluate their own team).
Phase two will be evaluated by a panel of practitioners representing various industries who value business analytics. A team’s overall score will be determined by a combination of their phase-one and phase-two scores.
