"The MStat program was a very great experience for me from everyone that I have met including great professors, lecturers, and all the classmates. The program itself has offered quite a variety of areas and topics that one can further delve into including traditional statistics, statistical learning (including data mining and big data), biostatistics, algorithm trading etc. It has stimulated me to study more in depth in quite a number of areas that involved statistics. Most important of all, the professors have taught us to focus back to the basics, the data, the domain knowledge, as well as different possibilities of statistical tools when dealing with a program. With the higher importance of extracting meanings and pattern from enormous amount of data, this program can definitely be the place to start exploring this area and it will be a great and unforgettable experience."

"In the past year in MStat, I met a lot of friends with different backgrounds, but with a similar characteristic: being interested in data. The program provides many options which helped us choose our career paths in the future. For students who follow data analytics theme, students could learn more about computational statistics, biostatistics and data mining. For students who choose risk management theme, they would have the skills to analyse financial data and apply statistical methods in the fields of economics and finance. The group project for capstone can also train our cooperation and time planning, as well as improve our skills of presentation and report writing. In short, as long as you are willing to learn, you will find the value of MStat."
