1-on-1 Professional Counseling

Students show off and further hone their skills while competing in events such as the Adobe Analytics Challenge and the T-Mobile Case Competition.

Analytics Workshop

Whether from SOMA’s resident student experts or from partners like Cognitir, SOMA members have many opportunities to learn analytics and be fully data-science-ready before their summer internship or full time jobs! Some of the typical workshops include full-day sessions on data sciences such as R, Python, visualization and storytelling, and shorter hands-on sessions on SQL and Tableau.

Dinners for Four/Dinners for Eight

SOMA gives opportunities to students to interact with recruiters and professionals in a smaller group setting through dinners for 4 or 8 people.

Speaker Series

SOMA brings industry talent to campus to educate students on how the real world works.
