Four students from the University of Minnesota Duluth's Labovitz School of Business and Economics' Marketing Analytics Program won first place for data visualization in the eighth annual Midwest Undergraduate Data Analytics Competition at the end of March. 

Joey Kmiec from Maple Grove, along with fellow students Tucker Hazzard, Camryn Monzo, and Austin Steinmetz traveled to Minnesota State University Mankato to compete against 58 other Midwest teams where the teams spent 24 hours working on a two-part data analytics problem and were judged on their work. This year’s data was provided by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency on water quality.  

The four-person team used the individual skills from each member to the team’s best advantage.

“Camryn has strong data visualization skills,” said Kmiec, a junior Marketing Analytics major. “Tucker and I have a good understanding of building statistical models, and Austin is very good at bringing our story together.”

This is the first time that an Labovitz School of Business and Economics team has secured a first place win at Midwest Undergraduate Data Analytics Competition.
