The Ph.D. in Statistics
Doctoral work in statistics combines theory and methodology to deal with the large quantity of statistical data.
Stern, one of the few top business schools that offers a Ph.D. in statistics, combines the theoretical and methodological orientation of a traditional statistics department with a focus on the applications that are central to the concerns of a business school.
The Ph.D. thesis work at Stern is a mathematically sophisticated enterprise that never loses sight of the real and practical problems of business.
In addition to the department’s growing strength in the area of statistical learning, it has maintained strength in time series and econometrics, two areas not always found in other statistics departments.
