Decision making will be much better if it can be done based on accurate data and analyzed with appropriate techniques. Not just a business problem, but also politics and public policy. Adequate statistical mastery can reduce errors in decision making. Statisticians are needed in planning data collection, analyzing data that is efficient and accurate, and drawing conclusions based on that data.
The industry needs data to decide what products consumers like and what TV shows are right for advertising. Financial institutions must decide which customers are profitable if given a loan/credit. The government needs information about which areas should be prioritized in development programs. This is just a small illustration of why the Bachelor of Statistics from the Department of Statistics, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, IPB University does not need to wait more than 3 months to get his first job.
In addition, the rapid development of technology and information requires users to be able to survive & develop themselves so as not to miss. If in the past, the availability of data for analysis was a major problem, but at this time large data sizes were generally obtained. In addition, along with the very large data sizes, increasingly complex problems arise. Of course, statisticians are required to master statistics in greater depth in order to develop thinking methodologies in the field of research & education to deal with these problems.
The curriculum of the S1 Statistics and Data Sciences Program is arranged according to the needs of the workforce and is taught with appropriate methods and a conducive academic atmosphere. In addition to teaching in class, students are also introduced to statistical applications in various fields directly. The Department of Statistics, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, IPB University also has 2 graduate programs to meet current challenges and needs.
