The Institute for Advanced Analytics held its annual commencement exercise for the Master of Science in Analytics (MSA) Class of 2012. Diplomas were awarded to thirty-eight degree candidates. The Institute’s director, Dr. Michael Rappa, presided over the ceremony, held at the Raleigh Convention Center, and was joined by members of the faculty and staff and over two-hundred guests. It was the Institute’s fifth commencement exercise since its inception in 2007. The new graduates join the Institute’s alumni community, which now numbers 174 graduates. The graduates and their family had much to celebrate, with over 90 percent of the class having already accepted a job in the analytics profession. Fast following in their footsteps is the MSA Class of 2013. Congratulations and best wishes to this year’s graduates!
