What makes Loyola's MS in Applied Statistics degree unique?

Loyola’s MS in Applied Statistics really is an applied degree. Whereas many schools teach just theory, Loyola trains you in SAS, or Statistical Analysis System. It was that training that helped me stand out on the job market. You interview for jobs knowing the most useful programming tool in the industry.
