Bringing analytics into the classroom and helping students learn predictive modeling technology. This is UM6P and SAS’ main objective behind this collaboration.
Organizing a hackathon where students can play an online simulation game on “Cortex Analytics Simulation” and learn analytics skills using predictive modeling technology, it’s a great way for professors to bring real-world experience into the classroom and an even better way for students to build their résumés. They compete for fun now – to win jobs in the future.
You can play for fun, friendly competition or sharpen your analytics skills.
"The Cortex analytics simulation game gave students an opportunity to apply concepts they learned in the program. It also allowed students to explore models that they may not have engaged with yet but will likely encounter in their future analytics roles. Overall, the case study, data, models and platform that are integrated into Cortex make it an excellent teaching tool in business analytics programs."
