The Big Data Challenge (previously: Hackathon) is an interactive event where students come together to solve business growth challenges with the help of big data. During the event two companies will provide datasets for you to work with. The day starts with the companies giving you instructions for working with big data, which you later can apply in a hands-on session as you set out to find the secrets hidden behind the numbers. With the information and insights you gain from the data, the companies’ growth can reach new levels!
