Greetings from home base - aka the Pittsburgh Building - at the Rensselaer Lally School. A lot has happened since my last post!
I took a second trip to India to meet with some of our amazing accepted students and to teach more interested students about our MBA & M.S. programs. It seems that our new M.S. in Business Analytics is proving popular among the tech-savvy; our advisory board and academic partnerships with IBM & SAS differentiates our program from many.
I also spent a week in California to visit Cal Poly Pomona & Harvey Mudd College and to represent The Lally School of Management at two MBA/M.S. events in Los Angeles and San Francisco. College visits are always a pleasure and these were no exception! Our M.S. programs do not require work experience and offer a one-year specialization in areas like Business Analytics, Financial Engineering & Risk Analytics, Management, Supply Chain Management, and Technology Commercialization & Entrepreneurship.
Next on the horizon: Round 3 admissions (March 1 completion for international applicants, March 15th submission and beyond for domestic applicants). We just unveiled a self-select calendar for those invited to interview, so we continue to embrace new technologies as they become available; core to the Lally School’s teachings!
We also celebrated our 50th Anniversary with over 300 participants at the RPI vs. Yale hockey game earlier this month. Great turnout and great pride! Tonight, our Graduate Management Student Association is hosting its annual wine tasting event with students, faculty, and alumni/ae.
