The MS in quantitative methods and modeling (QMM) is a 30-credit program.  The QMM program is designed to provide a broad spectrum of basic quantitative skills; thus, the required specialization courses span the areas of operations research, statistics, and computer information systems.  The flexible elective requirements permit the creation of a five-course quantitative sequence tailored to a student's professional and/or educational objectives.  Students also have the option of doing a graduate internship.  The list of preliminary and specialization courses is given below. 


Preliminary Courses    (7.5 - 9 credits)

Students with an appropriate background will be able to reduce the number of credits in preliminary requirements. Grades in 8000-level courses are not calculated in the grade point average.
