“UCLA’s MQE program stands out because it teaches the skills needed for success today and in the future. While searching for a master’s program, I wanted to find a school where I could improve my quantitative skills and learn how to do research. MQE was the clear choice because of their emphasis on providing the mindset and skillset to succeed.”
