Marketing Analytics and Insights, MS


Program Description:

The MS in Marketing Analytics and Insights (MS MAI) program is designed to provide graduate students with a strong base in marketing strategy, consumer behavior, and especially marketing analysis and insights. The program will provide students with the fundamental skills and tools to extract and analyze marketing data, and the opportunity to generate real-world interpretation, insights, and recommendations.

Admission Requirements:

Applicants for the program must possess a bachelor’s degree and should have at least 2 years of work experience in Marketing, Analytics, or related business areas.

As with RSCOB’s MBA program, no GMAT or GRE is required so long as the candidate’s cumulative undergraduate GPA is at least 2.7 out of 4.0. Applicants with a 3.0 or higher GPA will be admitted fully to the program.  Applicants with a 2.70-2.99 GPA will be admitted conditionally to the program.  Applicants with a GPA of 2.50 to 2.69 may petition for admission so long as that application is accompanied with a GMAT score of at least 400. All students admitted by petition will be conditional.  If accepted for conditional admission, that student must maintain a GPA of at least 3.0 out of 4.0 for the first 9 hours of course work.

International students must meet the language requirements set forth by the Wright State graduate school on its website: https://policy.wright.edu/policy/5070-international-students

All admitted students must satisfactorily complete MBA 7600 (Marketing Strategy) prior to taking any of the other courses of the MS MAI program.

Students are expected to have completed, at either the undergraduate or graduate level, six credit hours in statistics within five years prior to admission.  Students without this requisite statistics experience must pass an opt-out test or complete the MBA Quantitative Business Analysis course (MBA 5800). The statistics requirement must be met before a student begins the program.
