A new integrated postgraduate program in Official Statistics
In Collaboration with ELSTAT
The MA in Statistics at AUEB is a postgraduate program that provides a broad statistical training. The program has been successfully running for several years. Our students are able to understand and analyze the European official statistical data. EMOS supports a range of statistical skills such as data production process, dissemination, quality issues both in a national and European/international context. We offer to our students the ability to interpret the fast-changing official data production system of the 21st century.
Our department offers a high-quality degree because we have a well-established program that has many options and uses a wide variety of teaching approaches including traditional lectures, tutorials, computer laboratories, online lectures, and project work. With the EMOS label we include lectures/seminars for which statistical authorities (Hellenic and others) will be responsible. At the same time, we expect that some of our postgraduate students will be able to carry on their master thesis at the Hellenic Statistical Authority or to do work as trainees there. We expand the lectures offered to include official statistics supported from experts who work in other statistical authorities. This will provide stronger connections with statistical authorities inside and outside the country.
President of the Hellenic Statistical Society
It is a great pleasure that the Department of Statistics of the Athens University of Economics and Business and the excellent curriculum of the MSc in Applied Statistics has been awarded the prestigious EMOS accreditation. A career in official statistics, that is the statistical measures that follow specific principles and quality standards, is a scientifically exciting, creative and extroverted professional challenge for someone specializing in statistics. I hope that many graduates of the MSc will also become our future senior managers and contribute to the further improvement of the statistical information provided in the community".
