Applicants to any of our graduate degree programs require completion of a bachelor’s degree. While there is no specific undergraduate major requirement for the Data Science, Business Analytics, Healthcare Analytics degree or Product Management program, STEM educational background along with some programming experience are preferred; some prerequisite quantitative coursework may be required for those without that background.
Like the graduate courses, prerequisite courses are offered 100% online, in 8 weeks each. An official copy of your transcript(s) from all colleges and universities attended is required. Electronic transcripts can be uploaded directly into your application.
Transcripts sent by mail or express mail should be addressed to:
Office of Graduate Admission
315 Turnpike Street
North Andover, MA 01845
Merrimack undergraduate students may request release of their transcripts at no cost by indicating their permission for release on the graduate application. An unofficial copy of your transcript(s) can be uploaded to your application.
Please note: If you are having your official transcript mailed to Merrimack, it can take up to 15 business days for transcripts to be processed, mailed and received (depending on the originating institution). You will receive a Proxy Authorization form, which allows our Application Specialist to request your transcript on your behalf, once you have begun your online application.
