Statistics

Students in the Statistics area focus on the theory and methods of statistics with a special emphasis on business applications. Students are exposed to both Bayesian and classical approaches to inference and modern computational statistical tools. Several of the courses taken by students in the area are shared with the department of Statistics and Data Sciences. The main difference between the programs is the strong emphasis on business applications. Students that apply to the Ph.D. program in Statistics and Data Sciences can also apply to the Ph.D. program in IROM without an additional application fee.
