How do we know statistics is such a hot field?

Statistics.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, statistician jobs are projected to grow 27% in the decade leading up to 2022—significantly faster than the 11% average growth rate forecast for all occupations.

That’s hardly surprising, considering the explosion of big data and the eagerness of organizations in all sectors to turn that information into knowledge they can use.

Not all statisticians are created equal, however. When it comes to filling those jobs, companies are looking for candidates whose technical strengths are complemented by an interdisciplinary understanding of the business world.... [-]

Gabelli School graduates shape the field on a daily basis.

Business analytics involves applying models, methods, and tools to data, producing insights that lead to informed business decisions.

Its time is now. Why? The business world is complex. Data is everywhere. Businesses have realized that to stay ahead, they need to master analytics. The websites of every major news organization on Earth are full of stories about how business analytics is changing the way we work.

At Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business, we understand how important data-driven decision-making is to companies large and small, for-profit and nonprofit. We also understand the enormous challenge of reaching that potential.

It’s one thing to graduate from an information systems program with technical knowledge.

It’s quite another to graduate with vision.

It takes a lot of technically proficient IS professionals to design and maintain the systems that drive e-commerce, cloud computing, and big data. But ultimately companies are looking for people who also get the big picture.

How can technology be used to innovate business models?

Where are the biggest opportunities for technological disruption?

Which trends will deliver lasting value to the bottom line?

At the Gabelli School, we give students the economic and business context they need to answer those questions and take a leadership role in IS. Graduates of our Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS) program are well-positioned not only to enter this field, but also to grow into management roles at top companies.... [-]

Gabelli School graduates become media leaders.

New York City is the media capital of the world, with a wealth of opportunity to make your mark on the industry. Whether you’re already working in media, making the transition from another career, or seeking to enter the field at a higher level than you would with a bachelor’s degree, New York—and the Gabelli School of Business—is the place to be.

The city’s high-level, high-stakes media environment also means more competition—especially when it comes to moving into leadership positions in media companies.

A master’s program based on field data and measurable results.

What else would you expect from a bunch of quants?

When we set out to create a Master of Science in Quantitative Finance (MSQF) program, we left nothing to chance.

After interviewing managers at 20 leading finance firms to identify the skills they were looking for, Gabelli School program directors created a series of new courses specifically designed to satisfy those needs.

By continually optimizing our curriculum in consultation with industry experts, we’ve achieved remarkable results: 85 to 90% of our graduates find jobs within three months of graduation. Within six months, that figure approaches 100%.... [-]

Technical expertise is indispensable in taxation.

But for Gabelli School graduates, it’s only the beginning.

Tax laws change, budgets rise and fall, corporate strategies adjust. Taxation professionals need a finely honed set of technical skills to stay on top of this ever-changing field. But if you ask Gabelli School graduates for the secret of their success, they’ll tell you it’s about much more than mastery of the latest tax code.

The way to stand out—and move up—in this competitive field is to cultivate superior communication skills, creative problem-solving techniques, solid business instincts, and a clear-eyed view of moral and social responsibility.

Marketing data is what you’ll find out there.

Marketing intelligence is what you’ll master in here.

Data is in no short supply in today’s marketing environment. Gathering and analyzing that data is important, of course, but it’s just as crucial to step back and think about the deeper issues surrounding it.

What insights can we glean about consumer attitudes and preferences? How can those insights help us to influence consumer behaviors?

In the Gabelli School’s Master of Science in Marketing Intelligence (MSMI) program, we ask the hard questions on a daily basis. That’s because today’s employers want more than number crunchers—they want strategic thinkers who bring a blend of marketing savvy, data-driven insight, and moral clarity to the table.... [-]
