Shraddha Question by Shraddha on May 16, 2024Hindi

Hello Mayank. My son is in 12th studying commerce. He wants to pursue B.com. In addition to B.com kindly suggest a good course in statistics or Data analysis which he pursue with B.com. He is interested to study in India only.

Ans: Hi Shraddha, it is great to see yo have such clarity and support your son by upskilling. Combining B.Com with a course in statistics or data analysis will open up a wide range of career opportunities in finance, marketing, business analytics, and more. Encourage your son to choose a program that aligns with his interests and career goals. Practical experience through internships or projects can further enhance his learning and employability.
Data analytics is a sought-after skill and has a growing industry demand. Your son can explore professional certifications, diploma courses and bootcamps which are available on online education and skilling providers, offering the flexibility to pursue upskilling while completing his degree.
Additionally, with the growing importance of artificial intelligence, a course in generative AI could provide valuable insights into how AI can be leveraged in various business contexts. Opt for a course that offers practical and versatile skills that can significantly complement B.Com studies and broaden his career opportunities.

Hello Sir, What are options of higher education abroad for B.Sc. Statistics done in India ? Thank you
Ans: Hello,

To begin with, thank you for contacting us. I am happy to know that you have completed your B.Sc. in Statistics and now wish to pursue higher education overseas. To answer your question first, I would like to let you know that obtaining a B.Sc. in Statistics from India results in a number of possibilities for studying overseas. I would suggest that you take into account the following:

Master’s programs in Applied Statistics, Data Science, Statistics, or associated fields are offered by a number of universities in countries viz., the UK, the USA, Australia, Canada, and Europe. M.Sc. Applied Statistics, M.Sc. Data Science, M.Sc. Statistics, M.Sc. Mathematics with a focus on Statistics, and M.Sc. Quantitative Methods are a few examples. Next, given the rise of data-driven decision-making, Data Science, Machine Learning, or Business Analytics programs have grown in popularity. These frequently have requirements that correspond well with a B.Sc. in Statistics. Coming to Financial Mathematics, if finance and risk management is what interests you, Computational Finance or Financial Mathematics programs might be appropriate. If you have an interest in insurance, pensions, or risk assessment, programs in Actuarial Science are an excellent fit. Coming to Economics and Econometrics, programs that concentrate on the statistical analysis of economic data are offered by several universities. Lastly, the field of operations research entails the use of advanced analytical approaches to assist in making better decisions.

When deciding where to apply, I would suggest that you check the particular admission prerequisites for each program, examine the university’s standing and the experience of the faculty members in the field you are interested in, take into account the location and cultural compatibility, as well as investigate scholarship and financing possibilities. In addition to the above, I would also recommend that you get in touch with alumni or students who are presently studying the programs you are considering in order to acquire firsthand knowledge about the experience and prospects offered.
