Students admitted to the MSPPM program are required to have undergraduate coursework or comparable work experience in advanced algebra, pre-calculus, probability, and statistics prior to their first semester at Heinz College. You can meet this requirement by completing a college-level course with a grade of B or higher covering these topics.
The MSPPM program’s Data Analytics (MSPPM-DA) pathway requires incoming students to have prior programming experience due to the more technical nature of the curriculum. In order to ensure success for our MSPPM-DA students, the faculty have established guidelines for preparedness that must be achieved prior to starting classes at Heinz College. In some cases, the required preparation may be completed prior to submitting your application for admission. For other students, the preparation may be completed between the time you have been admitted and prior to the start of your first semester as a Heinz College student.
