About

The Analytics (MSAn) program from American University Washington DC incorporates data analysis best practices related to fiscal performance and operational effectiveness into the curriculum.

Students in the MSAn program learn evidence-based data gathering, data modeling, and quantitative analysis, as well as how to implement these tools to provide businesses with competitive advantages. Students gain skills to work in business intelligence, financial analysis, marketing, and consulting.

Required score: 3

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 3 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

The GRE® General Test contains three sections - Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. Three scores are reported: a Verbal Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, a Quantitative Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, and an Analytical Writing score on a 0 - 6 score scale in half-point increments.
