Statistical Training Today for The Data Scientists of Tomorrow

“Today it is imperative for us to put practice at the center of our discipline with relevant computation and theory as supports.” – Report on ‘Statistics at a Crossroads: Challenges and Opportunities in the Data Science Era’

Our approach is unique, integrating training in theory, methods, and computing with a uniquely immersive experience. Students will feel the pulse of Boston’s Data Science Industry through interaction with our guest speakers, industry partners, and multiple real world projects completed in our Statistics Practicum.

Regarding COVID-19

To our Admitted Graduate Students: Please know that our priority during this challenging time is the well-being of our students and ensuring their ability to fulfill their academic program requirements. This applies to our current students as well as you, our incoming graduate students. 

We are aware of the increasing concern around delayed visa appointments for our international students and delayed air travel for both our domestic and international students. Please be assured that we are currently working on alternative enrollment options for admitted students who are unable to make it to campus by the start of classes in September. You will be contacted via email with updates as they become available. Please be in touch if you have any questions or concerns (mssp@bu.edu).
