No matter what your field—marketing, law, education, agriculture, health and medicine, government, finance, engineering, economics, natural science, or politics—information is the key competitive advantage. Data is ubiquitous and free. What is scarce and valuable is the ability to utilize data resources to produce and communicate information through analysis, visualization, and the construction of statistically valid models.

The Master of Science in Statistical Practice program is specifically designed to produce data science professionals.
