The M.S. in Business Analytics admissions policy is designed to select outstanding students who have demonstrated academic ability, leadership and managerial promise. Each applicant is considered holistically on completed academic work, test scores, evidence of leadership and motivation, credentials, and letters of recommendation.
The M.S. in Business Analytics program requires that all students take foundation coursework in accounting and finance prior to enrolling in the core accounting and finance courses. These two foundation courses are taught by Elon M.S. in Business Analytics faculty and are designed specifically to prepare students for the core classes. Students are not required to complete these foundation courses before they enroll in other M.S. in Business Analytics classes. Students may take any courses that do not require accounting or finance as prerequisites.
Students who have prior coursework in accounting or finance are eligible to take placement exams, which, if passed, will enable the student to exempt this requirement. The assessment exams are available in both accounting and finance.
