Master´s Degree Statistics, Computational, Economics, Statistical Machine Learning, Chinese

Updated: Jan 19

An early facility with numbers and skills in Mathematics has developed over time into a fascination with Statistics. This came with the realization that the applications of Statistics are almost limitless, with the potential to benefit every area of business, government, and our individual lives.

My goal is to acquire the advanced skills and knowledge that the program will provide. My initial goal is to serve as a Statistical Consultant assisting large businesses by providing and analyzing data in an accurate and timely fashion to meet financial and other purposes.

Once I have sufficient experience, I hope to become an independent consultant while undertaking research and teaching in Applied Statistics.

I am in my final undergraduate year at UXXX and will shortly complete my economics and statistics degree; I am expected to graduate in July 2018 with a robust first-class degree. My current studies have provided a solid foundation in basic statistical concepts and methodologies, mathematical modeling, statistical method in economic statistics, and functional analysis.

To enhance my analytical skills, I anticipated the post-exam project analyzing London boroughs’ crime data with four other team members in the Statistical Department at UXXX. I applied R Program and Stata to establish statistical models and produce a pragmatic report. During the application, I discovered how to adjust measures across broad categories. In addition, we allocated different tasks to individuals efficiently in the collaboration. We produced an in-depth analysis report with a balanced conclusion in a week and won third place in the departmental competition. This participation taught me how to make strategic decisions in a team, and the practice also enhanced my technical skills in developing MATLAB programming.

I am particularly drawn to the program at XXXX because of the emphasis on equipping students with skills in applying knowledge to practical needs and applications and the practical sessions to achieve this. I am also keen to join a program with high mathematical content to extend and hone my natural skills in the subject.

I am attracted to the study of Computational Statistics because I know there is no shortage of data in the world, but there are many gaps in the world’s ability to make sense of and use it. This study area is an enabling key in turning mass data into useful information. This will be essential for maximizing my utility to future employers and clients. I have studied ‘R’ and Stata and was fascinated by their possibilities in providing solutions to problems that were, only recently, intractable.

The ‘merging’ of Statistics and Computational Sciences will be central to the future. I recognize that this specialty will prove to be a vital tool in providing long-term business predictions.

I believe that I have demonstrated high-order analytical skills in my academic career, and achievingI am now very keen to study Statistical Inference formally, to enhance my interpretative and intuitive skills - approaching new problems in creative and original ways. I realize that such skills are essential to the roles that I hope to fill in the future, and I believe that I have the potential to excel.

I hope to enter a prestigious program with a highly challenging and supportive academic environment, its alumni noted for their exceptional success. I also hope to create links and relationships with future leaders in the field. Thus, I regard your program as a perfect ‘fit’ to empower and inspire me in achieving my goals.
