With a Master's degree in Applied Statistics you will have the knowledge and the qualifications to assume a leading role in the design of statistical surveys and to contribute to the development of statistical analysis. Potential employers are banks and insurance companies, market research firms, as well as the industry sector, especially the pharmaceutical industry.

The Master's programme prepares students for careers as statisticians in both the private and the public sectors. Statistical methods are used all over the world and the students of the master's programme gain access to the international job market.

The programme gives the students training for a profession as a statistician. At the same time the programme prepares the student for studies at the Ph.D. level. The training covers many areas of statistical theory giving opportunities to work in different fields of application of statistical methodology, although a focus of the program is on applications within the economic and social sciences. The Master in Applied Statistics gives deep and wide theoretical knowledge with a focus on practical application of theory and methodology. Statisticians usually work closely with colleagues who have training in other subjects than statistics, in particular experts on the actual area of application. Here the statistician is considered as a special resource for implementation of surveys and statistical analysis. The ability to communicate with non-statisticians is therefore important. Partly due to the need to identify the information requirements and the restrictions surrounding the statistical study, and partly in order to communicate the design... [-]
