Admission and Financial Aid

Most of our students have an undergraduate degree or other experience in  economics, mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry, engineering and similar quantitative majors. Some students also come from finance and behavioral sciences so long as they’ve taken several mathematics courses. The faculty believe it is academically important to include students from a variety of different backgrounds and with a diverse set of experiences. Prerequisites include one course in multivariate calculus (Calc 3), one course in linear algebra, and one course in statistics/probability with a grade of B or better.  

Need a refresher? We’ve developed an Advanced Mathematics course for applicants who need a little more work before the program starts. The next Advanced Mathematics course will be offered in the evenings, beginning in August 2020. For more information, contact an admissions director at gradschool@yu.edu.
