Program Overview

  • Minor

The Applied Statistics minor gives students a background in statistical methods that will help them pursue careers in a number of quantitatively-oriented areas. Fields such as quality and productivity, financial analysis, market research and auditing are increasingly seeking people who have an understanding of statistical tools. Program courses such as Forecasting and Social Media Analytics are designed to prepare students to be the avant-garde of business, using data to push the boundaries of the status quo.

This program is not designed to turn students into statisticians; rather, it is designed to allow students to be the data-oriented individuals in their chosen fields, providing a valuable resource to their companies and peers, from market research at an agency to quantitative portfolio analysis at a financial firm.
