- Must have an undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree or the equivalent.
- Must demonstrate proficiency in the English language. Georgia Tech requires all international students from countries where English is not the primary native language to take TOEFL or IELTS test. No other language test may be substituted. Currently, Georgia Tech requires a minimum score of 90 on the TOEFL iBT, and a minimum score of 7 on IELTS.
- Must submit either GRE or GMAT scores, a professional resume, a personal statement, and contact information for three people who will submit letters of recommendation.
- Are expected to have a basic background in mathematics (at least one college-level course or equivalent knowledge in calculus, probability/statistics, and some linear algebra) and computing (at least one college-level course or equivalent knowledge in computer programming using Python.)
Applicants who do not have sufficient background in mathematics and computing may still be admitted, with the expectation that they either learn the necessary background material on their own before arriving, by taking one or more preparatory courses equivalent to Georgia Tech courses MATH 1712, ISYE 6739, MATH 1553, and CS 1301.
The MS Analytics program admits students for Fall matriculation only.
