Columbia Team Winning 2017 Citadel & Correlation One NYC Datathon

The Department would like to congratulate the Columbia team consisting of four students (three of which are IEOR students) on winning first place in the 2017 Citadel & Correlation One NYC Datathon. The competition was a great opportunity for students to showcase their talent and skills in data science, and required participants to analyze massive real-world datasets to understand how developments in the U.S. labor market post-financial crisis relate to broader economic, financial, and social trends in the U.S. since 2007.

The team has been invited to participate in this year's Citadel Cup (national finals) to compete with other winning teams throughout the nation for the $100,000 grand prize.
