A challenging opportunity for students!


Put your analytic and data mining skills to the test this spring and compete in the 2013 Analytics and Data Mining Shootout.  This competition, sponsored by SAS, Teradata and the Institute for Health and Business Insight, gives students the opportunity to solve a real-world business problem for the chance to win an all-inclusive trip to the Analytics 2013 Conference to present their work.  The top three teams will also receive a cash donation to their university or college.

Analytics 2013 will be held in Orlando, Florida, October 21-22 and shootout winners will be featured as part of the conference program. The Shootout is a great way for students to practice solving business problems and gain recognition from the academic and business communities. Get a sneak peek of this year’s problem and some advice from Bill Franks of Teradata in the following video.


Are you interested in participating? Gather up a team and register today! Please note that to participate, students must be currently enrolled as a full-time student at an accredited college or university in the United States.
