Entrants must be currently enrolled in a higher education degree program in the U.S.  See Challenge Rules for full eligibility requirements. 

In today's ever-changing technology environment, customers prefer quick and seamless interactions with their financial institute.  Senior leaders at Wells Fargo are looking for a new product, service, or application (the "Solution") that will improve the overall customer experience ("Business Objective").  Based on your analysis of the data, what recommendations do you have for senior leaders at Wells Fargo?

There are two Challenges addressing the Business Objective.  You may choose to respond to the Option A Challenge only, or respond to the advanced analytics Challenge in Option B.  You will be required to select prior to submitting your Solution whether you are responding to the Option A Challenge or the Option B Challenge.  You may only submit one Solution of either type and cannot win in both Challenges.
