The Master's program in Applied Statistics from Örebro University prepares you to take on an essential role in statistical modelling and design, and for making own methodological contributions. Would you like to do research in statistics? Then this programme is set up for you!
Education is in English and the program attracts students from several parts of the world, all with a common focus on the statistics profession. Our teachers also have extensive work experience and network contacts.
As one out of only two universities in the Nordic countries, Örebro University offers a European Master in Official Statistics (EMOS) accredited by Eurostat - the statistical office of the European Union. The EMOS option includes a 15 credits internship at a statistical authority and qualifies you for an international career in official statistics.
As the density of information in society increases, the labour market for statisticians is also growing - and is expected to do so in the foreseeable future. The profession is highly ranked in international comparisons, and competition for jobs is still relatively limited - both for newly graduated and established statisticians. Career opportunities are great, and a statistician can work in widely different areas worldwide. Some examples of employers are banks, insurance and pharmaceutical companies, manufacturers, gaming, marketing and consulting companies. The EMOS track qualifies you for an international career in official statistics at national statistical institutes such as Statistics Sweden (SCB). You will also be well prepared for a further career in statistics research.
