Students gathering in MQE department space


MQE accepts applications for each fall term on a rolling basis.  The application portal opens in September, and we accept applications from international students until June 1 and from domestic students until July 31.  Applications for Fall 2024 are now being accepted.

The MQE accepts students from a variety of backgrounds with diverse career goals.  Successful applicants will have demonstrated success in quantitative courses such as Calculus, Statistics, Microeconomics, and  Linear Algebra, among others.  Calculus I is a requirement to be considered for admission.  

The MQE's target cohort size is 20 to 25 students each year, but we do not cap the number of admissions offers.  Applications will be considered throughout the year.  

Given the nature of the MQE program---an 8-month professional degree---students are generally responsible for tuition and fees themselves.  However, a small number of merit-based scholarships are available for exceptionally qualified applicants.  The deadline to submit a complete application be considered for these scholarship funds is March 15.  Pitt undergraduates and alumni are eligible for $5,000 in Pitt2Pitt scholarship funds, which will be automatically applied to an MQE student's account before each term.
