The amount of data collected in today’s society is increasing explosively. It is a major challenge for companies and organizations to process all this material and draw relevant conclusions. In the Master’s programme in Mathematical Statistics you learn how to analyse complex data. People with such knowledge are in great demand in the labor market and forecasts show that the need is also growing in the future.

While studying

In addition to traditional lectures and lessons, a lot of time is spent on data analytics with the help of appropriate statistical software. The freeware R is used on many courses, but other programmes such as Minitab, SPSS and SAS can also be found.
In addition to courses with applied elements, you will read courses of a more theoretical nature that give an understanding of the models and methods used in mathematical statistics. Such knowledge is a prerequisite for being able to develop and evaluate new analytical methods.

Your teachers are researchers

In many of the courses, the teaching of data analysis takes place in front of a computer in a laboratory. In addition to written examination, the examination is done through written and oral presentation of laboratory reports, poster sessions and take-home examinations.

Your teachers are researchers in mathematical statistics and have long experience in data analysis and statistical consulting. All teaching takes place in English.

Career opportunities

In addition to the industries in which statistics are traditionally employed, for example in the pharmaceutical industry, insurance companies and Statistics Sweden, there is today a large and growing need in many companies and organisations of people with solid knowledge in big data – analysis of big and often high-dimensional data sets.

In addition to the required skills for a growing job market outside the university, you have good qualifications after graduation to continue in the academic world through doctoral education in mathematical statistics.
