Photos from MUDAC 2016

The Midwest Undergraduate Data Analytics Competition (MUDAC) drew more than 100 students from 17 universities across Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Iowa. Over 30 industry professionals participated as judges. The event was April 2-3 at Winona State University.

MUDAC was initially started to showcase the abilities of undergraduates in the data analytics field. The event has continued to evolve to enrich the professional development of undergraduates through an organized panel discussion and a job and internship fair.

Congratulations to the winning team from Concordia College and second place team from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign!
