The Department


The Department of Statistics of the Athens University of Economics and Business has been 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) and MSc in Applied Statistics (two-year with four directions, part-time course) courses offer specialist training in statistics applied to educational science, medical and social sciences, finance, econometrics and actuarial 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.
