The Master’s programme in Mathematical Statistics is a two-year programme aimed towards students that have a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics or Mathematical Statistics who wish to extend their knowledge in Mathematical Statistics. The programme is an excellent preparation for doctoral studies, and also provides a solid foundation for a professional career within the private or public sector. Strong competence in Mathematical Statistics is demanded in sectors such insurance, banking and finance, pharmaceutical companies and medical research institutions.

There is a mandatory set of 22.5 credits consisting of advanced courses in probability theory, statistical inference and stochastic processes. Other courses of 67.5 credits are elective and can be used to model your own competence profile. The programme ends with a diploma work of 30 credits which leads to a Master’s Degree.

Subject

Mathematical Statistics

Mathematical statistics is the subject within applied mathematics that describes and analyses random events.

The foundation is the mathematical probability theory, which goes back to the 17th century, but has in its modern form developed mostly during the 20th century. Probability theory is also the foundation of statistical theory on how to draw conclusions from data with random features. The rise of computer technology has also significantly contributed to broadening the field of applications within mathematical statistics. Today is mathematical statistics one of the most powerful tools in applied mathematics.

Examples that apply mathematical statistics to a large extent are the insurance and finance sectors, biological and medical research (biostatistics) and industrial applications like telecommunications and quality control.

The department cooperates closely both in research and teaching with the pharmaceutical industry, medical institutions and banking and insurance companies. Depending on direction of studies, a student with an exam in mathematical statistics has a good chance to get employment in these sectors.

Mathematical statistics can be studied in elective courses, as a major in a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree or as a complementary subject. Courses cover both theory and applications in various areas. Mathematical statistics is included in the Bachelor’s programmes in Mathematics, Biomathematics and Mathematics and Economics and a major in the Master’s programmes in Mathematical statistics, Biostatistics, Finance mathematics and Finance and Actuarial science.
