The goal of this concentration is to teach students advanced statistical methods in a variety of applied areas, such as marketing, finance, strategy, and economics. By applying these methods to numerous real-world problems, students will be able to improve their decision-making skills when dealing with uncertainty. This concentration will help prepare students to identify a problem, collect and analyze data, interpret the results, and communicate these results effectively. This liberal arts and management interdisciplinary concentration will provide an opportunity for students to expand upon the statistical methods they learned in QTM 2420.
