AXS National Collegiate Sports Analytics Championship

Online Round: November 1-15, 2023

What: Students provide 5-minute presentations based on analysis of a customer ticket data set supplied by our title partner AXS. Judges meet students online the first two weeks in November to hear the presentation and judge based on (1) statistical analysis, (2) data visualization, (3) actionable insights, (4) communication, and (5) integrity. See the AXS NCSAC Study Guide to learn more.

Why: Integrity, defined by Henry Cloud as “the courage to meet the demands of reality,” is at the center of the competition. Competition is the best way to measure talent. Students who can face the demands of short deadlines to produce actionable insights will shine.
