Meet 2020 Scholarship Recipient Muuzaani Nkhoma

We are proud to announce Muuzaani Nkhoma as the recipient of a MinneAnalytics Scholarship. Muuzaani is a senior majoring in statistics with a concentration in data analytics and a minor in information technology security at St. Cloud State University. He has participated in both the MUDAC and MinneMUDAC competitions and has worked on the SCSU “Jail Team,” analyzing data from the Stearns County jail system and reporting to county administrators. For the past year, he has also worked part-time in analytics and statistics for Medtronic.

“Muu is an independent learner who is constantly going beyond the requirements of his courses to spend time teaching himself new methods, participating in data analytics competitions, and working on extra-curricular projects,” says Michael Ernst, Professor of Statistics at SCSU. “He absolutely loves working with data and is very thoughtful about trying to uncover the story that the data are telling.”

MinneAnalytics Scholarships are awarded in the amount of $1000 to undergraduate students who display a passion for pursuing a career in analytics and a commitment to engaging with the community. This year $26,000 has been awarded to students from more than 25 colleges and universities. Thank you to our members and sponsors for making this possible!  Learn more→
