Welcome to the Analytics by Design Case Competition!

What’s Analytics by Design?
Analytics by Design is a professional community that was initiated by a group of enthusiastic analytics professionals (primarily Queen’s University Master of
Management Analytics alumni). Currently, Analytics by Design is organizing a two-day conference that brings advanced analytics experts, business executives, and analytics practitioners together to discuss the pressing issues faced by businesses and how to solve them by leveraging analytics.

What’s Analytics by Design Case Competition?
The Analytics by Design Case Competition will present an opportunity for students to showcase their skills and tackle a real-world business challenge. The competition has a preliminary round. Submissions will be made online, and a few teams will be invited to Queen’s University Downtown Campus on May 10th, 2018 to compete for the grand prize.

On the day of the final competition, every team will be assigned a professional coach (most are senior data scientists) who will provide advice and guidance to help teams improve and revise their solutions. Every team will present the final results to a panel of judges who will decide on the three winning teams that will be announced by the end of the day of the final competition.
