The third annual Business Analytics Competition was held at Manhattan College in May 2017. The event boasted 72 participants from 15 different colleges. Two phases of data were provided to the competitors. Phase one was distributed months prior to the competition, allowing for ample time to design and construct a poster that illustrated the solutions. Phase two, on the other hand, was only made available to competitors 24 hours before presenting.https://manhattan.edu/academics/schools-and-departments/school-of-business/business-analytics-competition/previous/2017-bac.php
Our final presentation that awarded us 3rd place out of 15 colleges in the competition is presented below. After taking our dataset and cleaning, analyzing and interpreting the data, we came to our final conclusion that there isn’t any correlation of how fund decisions are made based on the data that is provided. Eliminating to many outliners and other datapoints would give a poor representation to come to a strong conclusion.
