Μ.Sc. in Statistics

Μ.Sc. in Statistics


The postgraduate program of Μ.Sc. in Statistics provides specialized knowledge at postgraduate level to graduates of Greek and foreign Universities in the basic fields of Statistics and Probability.

The program’s objective is to train postgraduate students to the following fields:

  1. Probability Theory

  2. Statistical Inference 

  3. Applied Statistics

  4. Computational Statistics and Big Data

  5. Theory and Applications of Stochastic Processes 

Classes take place 4 mornings per week.

The study program mainly aims at full training and specialization of scientists with statistical or mathematical knowledge, in the science of Statistics and its applications, in order to be able to deal with and solve various problems in a quantitative way, both in the public and private sector.
