The knowledge and skillset obtained by graduates of the Applied Statistics with Network Analysis programme at National Research University - Higher School of Economics (HSE) will render them skilled practitioners, able to apply advanced complex data analysis techniques working in a range of organizations - both in commercial companies operating in various industries (banking, insurance, consulting, IT, medicine, pharmacy), and in research organizations (sociology, marketing).

Relevance and originality of the programme

This programme is unique because it is the first programme in Russia to offer a comprehensive approach to data analysis in different areas. As part of the programme, students from different disciplines can come together to solve practical analytical problems.

Those mathematically inclined gain an understanding of sociology and the object of research, while those with a background in the humanities will be able to build their skillset and gain a deeper understanding of statistical processes making up the data analysis that we teach. In addition, a special focus of the programme will be the analysis of social networks , a direction of data science that is becoming increasingly popular in foreign and Russian research practice.

Programme Goals

One of the main goals of the programme is to combine a modern approach to data analysis with the theory of social processes. It provides a holistic view of the theoretical and methodological basics, allowing students to select the approach best fitted to particular research questions, as well as giving them an understanding of the data structure to combine numerous statistical tools to solve practical problems.

Career Opportunities

Network analysts have recently become very demanded in different sectors of the labor market. While the demand for skilled professionals in data science and networks analysis is growing dramatically among companies and analytical centers, there still exists a scarcity of programs which provide a good training and knowledge in this area.

The Master’s Programme in Applied Statistics with Network Analysis offers the toolset required from data analysts by banks, insurance companies, IT- and telecommunication companies and many other firms.

According to PayScale’s report, an Entry-Level Data Analyst in USA earns an average salary of $54,617 per year. Rapid high-tech and innovation development in Russia endorses an expectation of salaries growth in jobs, based on applied statistics and network analysis at the Russian Labor Market and Worldwide.
