Are you ready for the challenge? 

Today's marketing is driven by data and analytics more than ever before. From recommender systems to consumer targeting, analyzing large volumes of data has revolutionized the practice of marketing.

Do you enjoy solving problems by thinking out of the box? Are you interested in applying algorithms to discover more about your data? Then look no further, and sign up for the Big Data Challenge!

On the 17th of April, the Big Data Challenge will take place. During the day, you will have the opportunity to work on a case offered by the data science teams at ING Nederland and eBay (Marktplaats). These cases will test your abilities to make sense of data and translate them into actionable insights. Working in groups, you will be given a dataset and a brief of what challenges must be solved. You will compete with the other groups by performing your analysis and preparing a presentation to show off your solutions. The winning team will receive a prize at the end, so try your best!
After testing your skills, it’s time to unwind with a networking drink where you will be able to meet like-minded students as well as get to know the people behind the data.

If you’re up to the challenge then don’t wait and apply now! Use your CV to sign up by clicking here. Be sure to register quickly as spots are limited!
