    • Prior two quarters of PTMBA enrollment information is provided for Investments (FINC-460) and Analytical Decision Modeling (OPNS-450) which were not taught in Summer 2013 or 2014 
    • No data is provided for Personal Leadership Insights (MORS-935-C)  since this is the first time it is being taught on the Chicago campus.
    • The enrollment numbers were taken at the end of all add/drop period
    • Note that sometimes there are wait lists even though the number of enrolled students is less than the max; this is because students on the waitlist either changed plans (or did not attend the first class for a first-class mandatory section)
