College of Business students Ryan Alizaga, Lilian Ruiz, Alberto Rivera and Hem Pandey participated in the SAP Project Dream Election 2016 contest with an entry focused on issues regarding diversity and millennials in the upcoming 2016 presidential election. The students used data visualization tools to create infographics and geospatial analysis to explain the changing face of America, illustrating population/demographic shifts for presidential elections. They also made a wonderful video to do the storytelling! Please visit https://ideas.sap.com/D33667 to view their entry.
As a winner of the competition, SAP will sponsor them to attend the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia from July 25 to 28. They will also receive training opportunities on how to best use data visualization software and best practices in creating dashboards and infographics. They will also get to connect with SAP colleagues and data visualization experts.
Congratulations to our students—We are very proud of their accomplishment!
