More than 90% of business students complete at least one internship during their college career. Internships are an excellent way to “sample” jobs that might become your career focus. Interns gain real world skills that strengthen their qualifications and give them a competitive edge when applying for full-time jobs later.
Applicants for admission to the MS-BIA program must have a baccalaureate degree, regardless of the undergraduate field of study, and an acceptable level of scholarship from an accredited institution of higher education. Students entering the MS-BIA program will need to show demonstrated proficiency in programming, either through a class or work experience and evidence that they have completed at least one statistics course in their undergraduate degree. Students without statistics may complete instead a non-credit statistics tutorial offered by the college for a fee.
