The Humana-Mays Healthcare Analytics Competition is adapting to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. The final round of the competition is virtual.
Students enrolled and taking classes part-time or full-time in an accredited Master of Science, Master of Arts, Master of Information Systems, Master of Public Health, Master of Business Administration program, or other similar master’s programs that educate students in business, health care, or analytics at an educational institution based in the United States are eligible to enter.
Students must be currently enrolled and taking classes and must not have graduated from the qualifying program at the time of the final round of case competition presentations.
In addition, students must also be physically located in the US from the date of team registration to the final presentations, excluding personal short-term travel of fewer than two (2) weeks. Employees of Humana Inc. are not eligible to participate.
Teams must be made up of two to four (2-4) participants from the same school. Although multiple teams from the same school may enter the competition, a student may not be on more than one team. If a participant is unable to, or chooses not to, complete the competition, no substitution is permitted. If the team falls below the two-person minimum due to a member leaving, the team is no longer eligible to compete. For teams to be eligible, teams must submit each team member’s name, student email address, and telephone number. Each team member must sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA), and these must be uploaded to the website by the registration deadline listed in the timeline. By registering the team agrees to adhere to all rules laid forth by the Sponsor and Organizer of this competition.
4.Resources and Ethics Statement.
The case competition business topic is designed to be ambiguous; such that it mimics real-world business problems, not thoroughly defined. Students are encouraged to do their own research to educate themselves about healthcare, in general, the specific topic of interest, etc. However, coaching and mentoring from outside sources, other than your registered teammates, is not allowed. These outside sources include but are not limited to, university faculty, university teaching assistants, university staff, or other professional consultants in related fields. By registering for the Humana-Mays Case Competition, each team acknowledges that they will participate with academic honesty and intellectual integrity. Failure to do so will result in the entire team’s disqualification.
