Admissions Overview

The Master of Science in Analytics program admits a small number of students each fall quarter (about 40). While this means that admission is highly selective, it also ensures that we are able to give each of our students individualized attention. In our program, we aim to foster a collaborative atmosphere and believe that a small cohort of exceptionally talented and strongly motivated students best enables us to do so.

The admissions review committee assesses each application holistically, taking into account all materials including, but not limited to, transcripts, letters of recommendation, and exam scores. We consider applicants from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences and encourage applicants of any academic background or experience level to apply.
