Students learn to understand and apply computational and data analytics, econometrics and quantitative analysis to policy- and management-related issues.
The specialization in Data Analytics and Quantitative Analysis (DAQA) provides opportunities to pursue advanced work in computational and data analytics, econometrics and quantitative analysis and to apply these techniques to a broad array of policy and management issues.
Who’s It For
Many students who choose this specialization have some professional experience or educational background in quantitative analysis and/or computational analysis, but the curriculum does not require prior coursework in these fields.
Curriculum & Courses
Students must complete 9-credits: SIPA U6501 – Quantitative Analysis II, and at least two other courses focused in either quantitative analysis or data analytics. (See the SIPA Bulletin for details.) In addition to these requirements, DAQA students must also 1) complete SIPA U6500 in their first semester and 2) take the SIPA U6400 and SIPA U6401 sequence of economics.
