Health and well-being company Humana Inc.

Students enrolled full-time in accredited Master of Science, Master of Arts, Master of Information Systems, Master of Public Health or Master of Business Administration programs at an educational institution based in the United States are eligible to enter. Students are invited to join in groups of two to three students—from the same school—to tackle a real-world case that will be announced in October.

The deadline for participants to submit their completed analyses will be Oct. 27 by 11:59 p.m. CT. Five finalists will then present their analyses to an executive panel at Texas A&M’s Mays Business School on Nov. 9, with the winner being selected immediately afterward.

“It feels great to partner with an institution—Texas A&M, my alma mater—that played such a pivotal role in my career development,” said Humana President and CEO Bruce Broussard. “Analytics are becoming increasingly important in health care, especially in helping to manage health more proactively. This competition is a great opportunity to provide students with real-life scenarios and to challenge them as professionals while bringing new ideas and thinking to health care.”

“An analytical mindset is one of the key characteristics of a Mays Transformational Leader. The Mays Business School MBA Program is pleased to host the Humana Data Analytics Case Competition, which will attract the brightest graduate students in the country to come together and solve a real-world business problem,” says Eli Jones, Dean of Mays Business School.
