Test your management analytics skills at a Rotman Datathon 2019

Are you interested in a career in management analytics? We’re seeking budding analytics professionals to take part in our Master of Management Analytics Datathons.

Solve a management problem

Data is most powerful when interpreted and applied to solve a specific problem. As a participant of one of our Datathons you will be doing exactly that.

During our Datathon you will:

  • Be tasked with a managerial problem set by one of our industry partners
  • Decide how best to clean, sort and analyze real data from the organization based on the challenge
  • Prepare and report on what you believe is the best solution
  • Experience management Analytics at the Rotman School of Management.

Our panel of faculty and industry experts will judge each submission, with prizes awarded to the winning teams.

Two datathons – choose the one that best suits you

We want as many people as possible to participate in the Master of Management Analytics Datathon so we are offering an on campus and online version of the event. The goal of each datathon will be the same – provide the best possible solution to the management problem using data – however the format of each will be different.

We ask that you only sign up to one event, so choose the one that best suits your situation.

Questions?

We have set up a page specifically to answer your questions.
