As tech-driven “big data” continues to fuel business strategies and innovations in the 21st century, 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 in the avant-garde of business, using data to push the boundaries of the status quo.
Why Applied Statistics at Stetson University?
The Applied Statistics minor is not designed to turn students into statisticians. Rather, the program 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.
