The MSc Statistics programme provides students with unparalleled training in statistical modelling and data analysis by bridging computation with communication and inference with intuition. Students in the programme receive direct feedback on written coursework from professors, who not only deliver rigorous insight into statistical theory during lectures but also delve into research applications during computer workshops. My training in the MSc Statistics programme has been indispensable in my current role at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
My MSc Statistics was essential for opening the door to my career in data consulting. As a consultant, I help clients sort out their data systems, teach analysts how to use visualise data, and build statistical models to solve client problems. For each of these things, I use data analysis and problem solving skills honed in my Master’s. The variety of courses as well as the research programme were excellent foundations for the type of statistical work I do every day.
