2015 Commencement Exercises

The Institute held its 8th annual commencement exercises today for candidates in the Master of Science in Analytics (MSA) Class of 2015. Diplomas were conferred to eighty-six degree candidates on a beautiful sunny morning at Meymandi Concert Hall in Raleigh. Presiding over the graduation ceremony was the Institute’s director, Dr. Michael Rappa. He was joined by members of the faculty, staff and five-hundred invited guests. Surrounded by family and friends, the graduates had much to celebrate as they embark on their new careers gainfully employed as well-paid analytics professionals. “Our mission is to produce the world’s finest analytics practitioners,” said Dr. Rappa. “Today marks the culmination of ten months of hard work and determination, and each of our students demonstrated they have what it takes to succeed in the profession. The Institute is delighted to welcome them into the MSA community.”

Congratulations and best wishes to this year’s graduates!
