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
Please check out our final presentation that awarded us 3rd place out of 15 colleges in the competition. After taking the raw dataset and cleaning, analyzing and interpreting the data. We were able to build a couple of predictive models, and other visuzlizations to display certain trends to our audience and judges.
Our final conclusion actually left us with no answer. We concluded that there isn’t any correlation of how fund decisions are made based on the data that is provided. Eliminating many outliners and other datapoints would give a poor representation to come to a strong enough conclusion to confidently predict a correlation. This conclusion ended up awarding us 3rd place judged on accuracy, and presentation.
