Announcing QuantHub’s Campus Data Challenge!

October 5-8 QuantHub is hosting its Back to School Campus Data Challenge! Register by October 3 for your chance to score high and win!

Why Participate in the QuantHub Data Challenge?

This is a great opportunity for university students of data science, computer science, statistics, math, analytics and engineering to test out their technical skills with a real-world challenge used by employers on the QuantHub platform. The challenge is intermediate level and for undergraduates and graduate students only (no PhD’s).

There’s a cash prize to be won – $1000 to the highest scorer, and $1000 to the university with the highest average score (minimum 5 participants). And the university who enlists the highest number of participants will get a pizza party for their Data Science, Computer Science or other club/group of their choosing! All candidates scoring above 90% will receive a QuantHub Certificate of Achievement.

We’ll be publishing a university leader board during the entire data challenge and updating scores along the way. Get your university’s name up there!
