Every student is expected to have an aptitude for critical thinking, and analytical and computing work. Beyond that, each student will be selected based on leadership in one specific skill set, either quantitative analysis, computing, business experience, or organizational effectiveness.

The Admissions Committee evaluates your academic potential, professional promise and personal qualities. These factors are not listed in order of importance, and we look at each candidate individually.

We have alumni from many different backgrounds in the program, including accounting, business, economics, the liberal arts and more. We seek students who show a passion for analytics via academics, professional engagements and/or volunteerism. 

Our goal is to assemble a class of students who will bring diverse perspectives to the learning environment.
