All University graduate students have until Dec. 2 to apply for the third annual Super Analytics Challenge, hosted by the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business. This year’s challenge will address the shortage of behavioral health and mental health workers amid a rising need for services.
This competition presents an opportunity for grad students to harness the power of data analytics to serve as catalysts for change. Students from unique backgrounds will team up to frame a problem, create a data methodology, and generate operable proposals for solutions. In addition, students will interact with a variety of senior technology and data executives at Fortune 500 corporations and local community organizations.
A recording of the Nov. 14 information session is available via My Pitt Video. Interested students can apply through this form. Five teams of five students each will be created following a review of application materials. Participants should prepare for a time commitment since they will take part in many activities leading up to the main challenge efforts in February.
As part of the Katz School’s commitment to using business as a force for good, the 2022 challenge focused on food insecurity in the Pittsburgh area. The winning team included students from Katz, the Graduate School of Public Health, and the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences.
