By Susannah Fuller-

The UVA Data Science Institute (DSI) and the Darden School of Business have partnered to provide an opportunity for students to earn a Master of Science in Data Science and a Master of Business Administration in 24 months. Partnering these two schools brings the best of both: Darden’s No. 1 best education experience in the world (The Economist, 2011-2016) and DSI’s action-oriented 11-month curriculum.

What does the program promise? Developing coveted hires and indispensable leaders in a variety of fields, including consulting, finance and technology. Interested? Learn more about the program. When asked about the program, current MSDS+MBA student, Ab Boxley answered,

“The Darden degree gives the MSDS the manager’s context, the MSDS gives Darden inspiration. It’s a very nice combination of technical skills and recognizing where those skills might be applicable.”

If you’d like to hear more from current students and the program’s faculty advisor, Raj Venkatesan, register for our MSDS+MBA webinar this Thursday, 12 October. Audience members will be able to ask questions about the program, application process, and more.
