About

Currently, students without sufficient statistical background knowledge can attain masters level proficiency by first completing the Higher Diploma in Statistics followed by the MSc in Statistics, which takes two years. The MA in Statistics provides an alternative pathway in 16 months and there is no comparable programme in Ireland or the UK.

Overview

The MA in Statistics at University College Dublin provides an alternative pathway in 16 months and there is no comparable programme in Ireland or the UK.

Career

Career prospects on completion of the MA in Statistics are equivalent to that of the MSc in Statistics and graduates pursue careers in the pharmaceutical industry (e.g. Elan, Quintiles), banking, finance, and risk management.There is increased demand for statisticians from the IT sector (e.g. Google, Intel, data mining companies). In addition many government departments employ statisticians. Some past students embarked on a career in academia by proceeding to study for a PhD in Statistics. Former MSc and MA students are currently working for such firms as Google, Western Union, AIB, Norbrook, EY, O2 and SPSS, while others chose to do a PhD. Demand for graduates continues to be strong both in Ireland and abroad.
