Redapt, an end-to-end technology solutions integrator with expertise from data center infrastructure to cloud engineering services, has committed to support one incoming Master's in Business Analytics (MSBA) student entering Albers' MSBA program in fall quarter.

The student will receive a $15,000 scholarship to be used in the first academic year, subject to continued satisfactory academic performance. Students are also encouraged to apply for internships or full-time positions at Redapt when they are available

The Redapt Scholarship will be used to improve the diversity of the MSBA program. Elements of diversity include, but are not limited to, those who:

  • Are first in their family to attend college;
  • Have overcome substantial educational or economic obstacles; or
  • Have experienced living or working in diverse environments.

Accepted MSBA students who have paid their tuition deposit are eligible. Albers will reach out to qualified candidates with further details.
