"My experience as a Duke Statistical Science student has proven invaluable throughout the course of my career. The undergraduate program well positioned me to excel as an options trader in New York after graduation. I later returned to the department as an MSS student. This experience greatly honed those skills I had developed as an undergraduate and through applied work in a professional capacity. The Master's program provided me with knowledge I constantly use every day as a manager of a team of data scientists for a medical diagnostic company."
"Be broad in the consideration of your intended areas of statistical application. The skills one attains through study in the department are highly applicable across numerous industries."
