Statistics to Strategy

Concordia College New York's Master of Science in Applied Statistics with a concentration in Business Analytics prepares graduates to be productive statisticians, able to apply their skills in a variety of fields. Concordia’s Applied Statistics students will be producers of statistics, rather than simply consumers. They will be able to both communicate their own statistical research to others, and properly analyze others’ statistical work. Using statistical tools and cutting edge technologies, students will create business models for strategic planning and business decision making, identify patterns and trends, predict outcomes, and clearly communicate findings.

Geared toward working professionals who seek advancement, new employment or a career change, the Master of Applied Statistics will give graduates the ability to create statistics from data, recognize the limitations of some statistics, and work with multiple statistical software programs. Utilizing the College’s proximity to New York City’s Silicon Alley and Wall Street, all coursework includes applied assignments for contemporary business analytics. Graduates will be employable as statisticians in a broad range of industries including pharmaceuticals, business, government, finance, and engineering. Additionally, graduates will be prepared to pursue careers in higher education.

Format: The program is offered in a hybrid format consisting of eight-week sessions with weekend course offerings, at Long Island Business Institute’s Times Square location.

Cost: $895 per credit hour; additional course fees may apply.
