Return of Investment for the Class of 2016

The average length of ROI, for the Master of Science in Analytics Class of 2016 whom responded to our post graduation employment survey, is 18.25 months. This is calculated by aggregating each student's opportunity cost of being in the program (1 years worth of forgone wages plus the cost of the program) divided by the increases in wages students have obtained after graduation (yearly income rate after the program minus yearly income rate before obtaining this degree) multiplied by 12 (to estimate in months).
