Meet the MS Class of 2020!

Fall classes officially began for students in our four MS programs—Accountancy, Business Analytics, Finance, and Marketing Analytics—a few weeks ago, but they have been on campus since mid-July when the Class of 2020 got acquainted with one another at Orientation.

One of the highlights of Orientation was when our MS Class of 2020 gave a new meaning to #SimonStrong by competing in the Amazing Race, a series of brainteasers and team building activities set up in 10 stations throughout Simon Business School. The half-day session allows incoming students to bond with their classmates and is a complement to the career preparation and other programming that lays a solid foundation for their Simon careers. The winning team received an exclusive Amazing Race 2019 Champions t-shirt and of course, bragging rights!

Teamwork is a primary focus of Orientation, and one of the core values of a Simon education. Here’s a closer look at our new “team”—the MS Class of 2020—by the numbers:

435: Students in the Class of 2020
15: Countries of citizenship
63%: Percentage of female students
0.6: Average years of work experience
3.0-3.8: Middle 80% GPA
640-720: Middle 80% GMAT score
22: Average age

We can’t wait to see what else our MS students accomplish in their time at Simon, and we hope that you will be among next year’s incoming class—apply now!

If you’re planning on being a member of our MS Class of 2021, attend our webinar “Round 1 Application Tips” on Wednesday, September 25, at 9 a.m. EDT. A member of the Admissions Committee will guide prospective applicants through the application process, provide tips on constructing a competitive application, and address some of the most commonly asked questions about applying to Simon. If you are targeting the October 15, 2019, application deadline, you are encouraged to attend this session.
