As one out of only two universities in the Nordic countries, Örebro University offers a European Master in Official Statistics (EMOS) accredited by Eurostat - the statistical office of the European Union. The EMOS option includes a 15 credits internship at a statistical authority and qualifies you for an international career in official statistics.
Communication and collaboration are emphasized, to prepare students for identifying an organization's information needs and the conditions for the statistical survey or analysis, and to clearly communicate the chosen approach and the results.
The knowledge you gain in for example survey methods and econometrics are relevant to emerging areas such as data science and integration, big data, and statistical learning, as well as others where proficient statisticians are required. Applications are often related to economics and other social sciences.
The Master's program is divided into four semesters. The first semester begins with courses in mathematics and statistical theory. The second semester consists of two courses in econometrics, two courses on theory and methodology for survey sampling, and courses in computer-intensive methods and Bayesian statistics. During the second year, you will write two theses of 15 credits each. In addition, you have 30 optional hp, of which 15 hp internship is an option with the EMOS-track.
