The Department

The Department of Statistics of the Athens University of Economics and Business was founded in 1989. Its purpose is to provide innovative and high quality undergraduate and postgraduate education in probability and statistics. Every year 120 undergraduate students are accepted and two postgraduate courses are run.

The department has an international reputation for development of statistical methodology that has grown from its history of active contributions to research and teaching in statistics.

Our taught MSc Statistics (one-year, full-time course), MSc in Applied Statistics (two-year, part-time course) and MSc in Quantitative Management of Actuarial and Financial Risk (two-year, part-time course) courses offer specialist training in applied statistics.

We welcome PhD applications from students with an excellent MSc qualification and an interest in many areas of statistics like Bayesian statistics, stochastic modeling, financial mathematics, actuarial statistics or multivariate statistics.
