Certificate Program

EITM Certification

Students attending the ICPSR Summer Program may obtain EITM Certification for coursework successfully completed in several pre-approved classes, such as Introduction to Game Theory and Regression Analysis II. The certification has a minimum grade requirement: students can request certification for each one of the pre-approved courses in which they have obtained A- or higher. At the time of course selection, the ICPSR summer program student requests a letter grade for an EITM certified course. The ICPSR’s summer program staff will forward letter grades to the EITM Leadership, and applicants will receive an email notification of their certification status in the fall.

Certification-eligible Courses

This list will be updated in the spring of each year. Please direct all inquiries about EITM Certification to eitm@eitminstitute.org.
