Who Should Apply

Full-time and Part-time Masters of Science Applicants

The program is aimed at quantitatively-oriented students with undergraduate degrees in science, mathematics, computer science, and engineering. This kind of program represents an unprecedented opportunity for quantitatively gifted students to connect with industry and to pursue careers in financial services, life sciences, retail and media, and other industries where the demand for analytical skills is almost insatiable.

Admission Requirements

4-year undergraduate degree; calculus (1 year); at least one course covering basic probability, hypothesis testing, and estimation; GMAT or GRE scores are required.

Experienced Professionals

Experienced professionals wishing to learn the latest in data analytics and big data may take one of the 4-course graduate certificates offered by the BI&A program:

  • Graduate Certificate in Business Intelligence and Analytics
  • Graduate Certificate in Market Analytics
  • Graduate Certificate in Supply Chain Analytics.

The Graduate Certificate in Business Intelligence and Analytics is offered online as well as in face-to-face mode. It can also be offered at a corporate site for cohorts of more than 20 students. Please contact the Program Director.


You do not have to have taken a GRE or GMAT test to be admitted to a graduate certificate program.

All courses in the graduate certificate program can be applied towards the MS in Business Intelligence and Analytics if you later decide to continue to the master’s degree.

Stevens Undergraduate Students

Graduate BI&A Courses

Students in their junior or senior years who have a GPA of 3.3 or above may take additional BI&A graduate courses that are not part of the requirements for their undergraduate degree. Such courses may count towards a 4-course graduate certificate in BI&A or, if the student satisfies the admission requirements, up to four such courses may be counted towards the BI&A degree. In effect, this accelerates progress towards the attainment of the MS degree.
