Business Analytics Admissions

Designed for both career advancers and career changers, the Online Master of Science in Business Analytics (OMSBA) program at William & Mary helps develop a student’s ability to derive insights from data and to situate those insights for an organization’s bottom line.

Because of this rigorous emphasis, our Online Admissions Team looks for prospective students who have a strong analytical aptitude and firm quantitative background, so they are better able to achieve success and benefit from our robust curriculum.

To prove your readiness for the program, all applicants must demonstrate business acumen for the program in any of the following ways:

  • Possess two years of relevant professional work experience
  • Successfully complete a prior undergraduate or graduate program in business or coursework in corporate finance, accounting, marketing and operations
  • Successfully complete the following courses, including those from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania with certification:
    • Introduction to Corporate Finance
    • Introduction to Financial Accounting
    • Introduction to Marketing
    • Introduction to Operations Management

Domestic applicants may also demonstrate their quantitative competency in the above ways or by submitting GRE or GMAT test scores. While only recommended for domestic candidates with an undergraduate GPA below 3.25 (on a 4.0 scale), if your academic background lacks a strong quantitative foundation, candidates may also benefit from submitting a score that can indicate a strong quantitative affinity.

However, GRE/GMAT scores are required of all international applicants. For a more individualized recommendation, please contact an Admissions Advisor at 877-212-7180.

To understand how to apply to the program and substantiate your quantitative background, please visit the admissions requirements page below.
