All Day McCombs School of Business

The Master of Science in Business Analytics Program in the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas is partnering with USAA to host dataHACK UT 2016, a campus-wide predictive modeling competition for upper division undergrads and graduate students.

Using a dataset provided by USAA, students will be asked to develop a model that can accurately predict major life changes in this exciting 12-hour event. dataHACK UT is hosted in the McCombs School of Business from noon-midnight on Friday, 2/26/16. The winner is the team with the most accurate model by the close of competition, and the first prize is $5,000.

Students do not have to stay for the entire day and may leave whenever they feel they have developed their best possible model that they would like to submit for judging. Students will be applying graph analysis, database, or graph theory. For more information on dataHACK 2016 or how to register your team, please visit the official dataHACK UT 2016 website:

Since business meetings, trainings, and networking events often involve eating, dining etiquette is an essential career skill. At the MPA Etiquette Dinner, students will learn how to navigate business and recruiting dining occasions with class. As a participating organization, you will interact with MPA students throughout the meal and educate them about available career opportunities. A networking dessert reception at the end provides a chance to connect with additional students.
For more information, please contact Michelle Polkinghorn.

Registration Note: This event is included in the MPA Premium Opportunities Program benefits. Contact Jim Franklin for information on how you can participate in this program.
