Put your analytics skills to the test. Compete against your peers. Leverage your experience for potential employers.

Cortex: The Online Analytics Simulation Game 

You work on a team of data scientists for a non-profit organization. You’ll be given a dataset of 1 million potential donors. Using SAS, players will build predictive models to determine who to contact in their fundraising campaign. Team leaders upload their decisions to the leaderboard to see where they rank.

The top teams will present their findings to a panel of industry judges at the end of the week.

Prizes include bragging rights, an e-badge, and SAS Swag packs.

Open to George Brown College students. Register below as a team (up to 3 students) on a first-come-first-served basis. Spots are limited!

May 30 – June 3, 2022.

Times and details will be announced shortly. This is a virtual event. 

Registration is full but if you would like to play Cortex with George Brown College, please
