CSBS Selects Eight Student Teams for Data Analytics Competition

Eight student teams from six universities have advanced to the second round of the 2022 CSBS Data Analytics Competition. In the second year of the data analytics contest, students have been asked to develop a data analytics model that demonstrates the role community banks played during the pandemic using data from the Paycheck Protection Program.

The eight selected teams will submit their research reports by April 22. The four top teams will be selected to make final presentations on May 5 and will receive monetary prizes up to $5,000.

Student teams from the following universities advanced to the second round:

  • Carnegie Mellon University
  • College of William and Mary (two teams)
  • Georgetown University
  • Kennesaw State University
  • Southern Methodist University (two teams)
  • University of California at Irvine

The Data Analytics Competition is a new opportunity offered by CSBS, giving undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to conduct a rigorous economic research project to better understand community banking and regulation through a pre-defined, comprehensive data analytics project. Students derive data-driven insights to help policymakers, regulators, scholars and others understand the role that community banks have in the U.S. economy, and, at the same time, develop skills in data science, finance and accounting and communications.
