Heinz QSSP Requirement

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I was recently accepted to the MSPPM program at Heinz, contingent upon completion of the QSSP. Has anyone ever done this math boot camp? I definitely need it, but would need to rescind my acceptance of a summer job to help me pay for Heinz... it’s a circle. Any advice / words regarding the QSSP would be great!

I'm a first-year here at Heinz. I didn't do QSSP, but a lot of my peers did. It seems like a short but somewhat rigorous course. I heard that most people went out together afterward daily. That means it can't be too bad. It also sounds like it was a great way to get to know people. Let me know if you have other Qs. It's great here.

Also! -- The econ and stats courses were challenging for me, especially stats, and I got placed into higher courses. That means QSSP would have been really helpful as a refresher.

hmmm I was not asked to participate in the QSSP but I was told that I need to take a stats class. I wonder what the difference is. Definitely regretting not taking stats in undergrad and just one more (little) thing to factor into the cost of attendance!

Did you take any quant classes prior to applying? like microecon and stats? accounting?

Thanks so much! Heinz is my top choice, so I may message you some more questions at some point! I did undergrad in Pittsburgh and miss it terribly.
