With the ever-increasing amount of data collected and stored by many organizations, there is great importance in comprehensive data analysis to inform decision-making. The science of statistics centers on this issue and supports leaders in financial institutions, the high-tech industry, government institutions, medical research and many other fields. Our mission is developing and teaching the quantitative theories/models and methods/algorithms needed to face the data challenges of modern society.
