How to Apply

We encourage students from a variety of backgrounds to apply. Those with undergraduate studies in business, computer science, mathematics, natural sciences, statistics, or one of the behavioral or social sciences constitute the majority of our students. Students admitted to the Ph.D. program or the M.S. program should have a foundation in calculus and statistics.

  • Three letters of reference
  • GRE scores (verbal & quantitative)
