Date: April 1-2, 2017
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Winona State University will host the Midwest Undergraduate Data Analytics Competition (MUDAC) 2017 on April 1-2, 2017. MUDAC continues to grow each year. MUDAC brings together students, faculty mentors, and professional data analysts for an exciting 24-hour competition. MUDAC consists of teams of undergraduate students from around the Midwest who are given 24 hours to solve an analytics problem motivated by our corporate sponsor. Teams share their recommendations with representatives from our corporate sponsor and other professional data analysts. MUDAC 2017 will continue to expand upon the networking opportunities between the professional data analysts in attendance and your students.

Faculty mentors from each participating institution are strongly encouraged to attend. Teams will be able to seek advice from their on-site faculty advisors throughout the competition. Over $1,000 in cash prizes will be given away again this year. Students and faculty alike find this to be a wonderful learning experience. Please encourage your students to consider participating in MUDAC 2017 on April 1-2, 2017 at Winona State University in Winona, MN.
