You develop three important skills in the MSQE: theory, mathematics, and programming. Theory is important, and you get plenty, but what sold me on the program was the hands-on aspect. A common complaint from employers these days is a lack of real-world experience. The classwork in the MSQE is project and results oriented. This experience, and the opportunity to work at the Center for Economic Research and Forecasting (CERF) alongside your professors... this program offers much more than just theory. Without the experience of really applying the material while still in school, I wouldn’t have had the options available to me afterwards. This program sets you apart.
