On May 17, the third edition of the Business Data Challenge will take place. This event is organized by Asset | Economics. Asset | SBIT and S.A. Flow. It is a great opportunity to apply your analytical skills to real business problems while meeting potential employers! During the day, you will work together in multi-disciplinary teams to solve a case provided by DHL, Itility, or Bright Cape. 

To solve the case, you must reach various milestones with your team. First, you will hold a brain-storm session to generate some ideas. Then, the company provides a dataset that must be analyzed and visualized to complete the second milestone. Finally, you will integrate your findings into a complete solution that your team presents to the company. For each case, the best team goes through to the final, where they  share their ideas with the entire audience and jury. Between the milestones, there is room for several breaks and an inspiring intermezzo for all students organized by DHL. We will also provide lunch and drinks while you are working on the case.

After the final, everyone can enjoy a three-course dinner. Subsequently, we will have an informal drink with recruiters from the participating organizations. Thereby, the event offers plenty of networking opportunities. In addition, the winning teams will be awarded prizes during the award ceremony.
