“The M.S. in Data Science offered an exceptional academic experience, and UVA has a phenomenal reputation. The opportunity to earn an MBA and MSDS dual degree was also unique and extremely valuable. Finally, my wife and I visited Charlottesville and we fell in love with the area!” — Keith Wilson, MSDS/MBA 2021
