What is DataFest?
ASA DataFest is a data analysis competition where teams of up to five students attack a large, complex, and surprise dataset over a weekend. Your job is to represent your school by finding and communicating insights into these data. The teams that impress the judges will win prizes as well as glory for their school. Everyone will have a great experience, lots of food, and fun!
ASA DataFest is a great opportunity to gain the experience employers are seeking. Having worked on a data analysis problem at this scale will help make you a good candidate for any position involving analysis and critical thinking, and it will provide a concrete example to demonstrate your experience during interviews.
More information can be found on the DataFest 2020 website.
ASA DataFest at Notre Dame is organized by the Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics Department, with a special thanks to the Mendoza College of Businesses for providing students with work space.
