Are you seeking an education with a strong return on investment that will set you on the right career path? The Master of Science in Analytics (MSA) has a proven track record — over 15 years of experience placing graduates in the profession in a cost-effective manner with a rapid time to completion. Starting salaries and placement rates are strong and consistent. The ROI payback period is estimated to be two years on average.
Career services are an integral part of the MSA experience, including assistance with resume writing, interview and presentation skills, and professional networking. All career services are staffed and coordinated by the Institute exclusively for MSA students. Dozens of employers engage the Institute each year with the sole purpose of interviewing our students. Most job interviews are arranged with the assistance of the Institute.
The Institute was founded on a principle of transparency in providing prospective applicants with relevant data on student outcomes. We believe in letting the numbers speak for themselves. The employment report is a complete census of our annual placement results. It is published promptly upon graduation each year. We invite you to download the employment report and to inquire with any questions you may have about it.

|Bold denotes employers that succeeded in hiring one or more candidates, and (*) for employers that hired more than one candidate. The list does not include agencies of the federal government making conditional offers of employment.|
Notes: Data with respect to salaries and bonuses are self-reported by graduates (without anonymity) and whenever possible verified by employers in cases where placement is arranged by the Institute (i.e., most candidates). Two graduates returned to prior employers. Two graduates will enter a paid, employer-sponsored training program for one year before entering regular full-time employment. All other job placements are full-time paid positions.
Data are made public here to guide prospective students and employers. Annual base salary figures do not include signing bonuses, relocation allowances or other forms of one-time compensation guaranteed upon signing. Conditional job offers (i.e., those requiring security clearance prior to employment) or other public sector employment are not included in salary data. As a STEM-qualified degree, international MSA graduates are eligible for Optional Practical Training (OPT). Commencement is typically held on the first Saturday in May.
DISCLAIMER: The Institute has a proven track record for placing graduates in the analytics profession, but it does not under any circumstance offer a guarantee of employment upon completion of the MSA degree.
