I have a MBA and I’m considering doing a MS in Stats. If I do the stats degree what types of jobs should I be looking at? I know risk management is one area, just looking for other ideas.
What sort of work experience do you have? A degree in statistics will probably only be valuable if it builds on some previous quantitative experience.
5 years consulting experience and 4 years as Director of Research/Investment Analyst at a small RIA. I may switch fields entirely if I get the stats degree. I just want to have a good idea of options before making an decisions.
I’d look at stats programs and see what their placements are. Doubling up on masters degrees isn’t always the most profitable move though.
Stat = Consulting, so basically you’ll be back to where you started, of course in a much senior role. Btw, which line do you want to switch to?
