Business Data Challenge

Do you want to get in touch with 3 interesting companies while having the opportunity to win a big prize?

On the 10th of May it is finally time for a new and exciting event Tilburg University has to offer, the Business Data Challenge!
The Business Data Challenge is a new initiative from Tilburg University organized for Master students Information Management and Data Science & Society. The aim of this event is to allow you to convert the theory and knowledge you gained during your study into practice and go for the extra mile! Collaboration, mutual learning, the application of knowledge and innovative solution-oriented thinking are central to this.

Information Management and Data Science are both fields of study that have been growing rapidly in recent years. This is mainly due to an increase in technological developments and the obtainment of new insights from data analysis via various tools. While the Information Manager ensures that the information systems are aligned with the business strategy, the average Data Scientist is concerned with analyzing data in order to optimize the business processes.

By combining these two aspects, Tilburg University wants to challenge you to enter the Business Data Challenge. Throughout the day, you will need to complete an extensive case offered by one of the three participating companies. You will have to go through various “Milestones” in order to arrive at the best end result. The final result will be judged by a professional jury and the winning team will receive a cheque of €600-! The day will end with a dinner and an informal drink. The entire day/event will be totally free of charge!

Participating companies:
• Accenture
• Vanderlande
• Atos
