Accredent Selected As Judges For National University Data Analysis Competition

National University Data Analysis Competition Focused On Water Quality

On November 5th, students from all across the United States met in Minneapolis to compete in MinneMUDAC’s University Data Analysis Competition. Two Accredent Principals - Jennifer Nowlin and Kent Strand - were invited to judge the 39 graduate and undergraduate teams in an all-day competition held at United Healthcare's Optum campus.

The students were given the challenge to work with three core water quality-related data sets and derive actionable insights from their analysis. The data sets were ugly, the data transformation messy, yet these students dug in, used their creative and scientific minds to showcase their data story to judging teams that consisted of industry & data experts from companies such as General Mills, Mayo Clinic, Teradata and Accredent.

Hats off to the teams, coaches, the MinneMUDAC organizers, and other judges for doing a great job! Truly excellent analysis of seriously demanding data, professional presentations, and great actionable insights.  

Finalist Presentation

Thanks to all the wonderful students who stopped by our table at the career fair.  It was a pleasure speaking to such talented and enthusiastic up and coming professionals.  We look forward to continuing our discussions with you about future internships and career positions.
