As the world becomes ever more data-driven, analytical skills are in high demand but very short in supply. Few companies are exploiting quantitative techniques to their full potential, often due to a lack of in-house expertise.
The programme aims to develop competence in students in the application of statistical and machine learning techniques at a high level. It will provide students with a sound knowledge of the principles underlying standard applications of probability and statistics.
They will be taught to demonstrate statistical software to analyse datasets and interpret the output, using a variety of algorithmic and model-based methods. It is important for graduates to learn to draw appropriate conclusions following empirical analysis and form the basis for managerial decision-making.
- This statistics degree programme requires candidates to have attained greater competency in mathematics prior to admission.
