Our 5th annual Data Challenge competition is underway!

All student teams are provided with the same multiple data sets and questions from our non-profit partner, Hire Heroes USA, whose mission is to empower U.S. military members, veterans and military spouses to succeed in the civilian workforce. We are fortunate that they returned for the second time to partner with us on the Data Challenge! The teams will analyze the provided data and business questions and submit their findings and results. See the Data Challenge Datasets and Business Questions page for details.

**2019 Data Challenge is open to university-level undergraduate and graduate (Master's) students, who will still maintain their student status in their institution by Fall semester 2019.
 
No high school and PhD students are allowed to participate in this competition.

We hosted a Q&A webinar with Hire Heroes USA today (3/19/19). Recording is available below:
