Statistics and Business Analytics Key Features

Google’s Chief Economist, Hal Varian, said almost a decade ago: ‘I keep saying the sexy job in the next ten years will be statisticians. People think I’m joking, but who would’ve guessed that computer engineers would’ve been the sexy job of the 1990s?’
Here we are in 2019. Big data, IA, data mining, business analytics are all linked to statistics. What does this signify? How do we communicate in today’s era? Why is it relevant to all of us and not only limited to statistical experts?
In the Statistics and Business Analytics Summer Program at HEC Paris, you will discover the answers to these questions and become the expert.

A program with a pratical approach

The aim of this intensive program is to prepare you to use statistical tools and quantitative methods in order to make better business decisions. As technology evolves rapidly, entrepreneurs and a wide range of professionals can rely on larger, more detailed and reliable, data sets concerning all facets of a business. Tools for statistical analysis are becoming ever more sophisticated, powerful and user-friendly. Statistical analyses can be run from multiple locations with short delays. Therefore, before making a strategic decision, and before communicating to colleagues, supervisors or outside stakeholders, you will want to consider the relevant data, understand and explain statistical analyses with ease and impact. The goal of this course is to prepare you to do just that.
