Winning students
We are thrilled to report that two of our students took out the top prize in this month's EY Data Science Challenge. 

Undergraduate students Jacky Koh (Actuarial Studies, majoring in Stats) and Saksham Yadav (Bachelor of Data Science + Decisions) have each won a cash prize and EY internships. 

374 competitors from across the country participated in the challenge, which required them to use data science and analytics techniques to understand the key drivers and influencers of quality of life measures globally, and to predict relationships between macro trends, education and quality of life.

Impressively, Jacky and Saksham were the only undergraduate students among the finalists. A very big congratulations to these young data science superstars!
