Two alumni of the MSQE Program participated in a virtual MSQE Alumni Networking Panel on March 18th:
Louis Booth: MSQE Dec 2018
John Rolfe: MSQE Dec 2019
Louis currently works at Travelers, as a Consultant Analytics and Research Development, where he is on the Advanced Tools and Technologies Team. John currently works at Spreetail as a Demand Planner where he does demand forecasting.
They spoke highly of their MSQE training in Python, R, and Tableau, and gave several examples of how they use these skills in their current positions.
The panel was moderated by Professor Harmon.
The Department of Economics has a new MS program, now accepting applications to start in Fall 2017.
The Master of Science in Quantitative Economics (MSQE) Program emphasizes the development of skills in quantitative methods and data analysis, as well as the application of those skills to economic problems. The program combines training in economic principles/theory with strong training in quantitative and analytical methods.
The program qualifies as a STEM program. It is designed for individuals who seek careers in public and private sectors, including, for example, insurance companies, health care providers, think-tanks, financial consultancies, accounting firms, and academic institutions.
The program requires a minimum of 30-credits and typically is completed over three semesters. Due to course sequencing, students are only admitted to the MSQE program for the Fall semester.
