Statistics is a rapidly, expanding discipline with openings in practically all industries and service sectors. This is particularly true for the fast growing Insurance sector, which heavily depends on statisticians and actuaries. Unfortunately, the limited availability of seats for the Masters Programme at the Universities level has curtailed academic growth and upward mobility of graduates in Statistics. Moreover, the programmes currently being offered by most Universities lack flexibility and ability to respond to the immediate demands of market forces. This, in general often results in students being qualified but they are not employable.
Considering this scenario and also the fact that there is a need to develop highly skilled manpower which can fulfill the needs as well as demands of an industry which is subject to constantly challenging and evolving market forces, the NMIMS (Deemed-to-be University), which is known for its dynamism and flexibility in designing courses to suit the need of the hour, now has a unique Master Programme in Statistics, under the School of Sciences.
The rigorous course work is spread over 6 trimesters, including a Research Project.
A total of 20 seats are available for the M.Sc. program in Statistics.
