Graduate Placements

The Department of Statistical Science places a very high emphasis on career and professional development. We offer in-house assistance with resume writing, interviewing, communication, and presentation skills through our ProSeminar class and additional workshops. Additionally, potential employers and alumni specifically visit the department to offer information sessions, networking opportunities, and recruitment activities specifically for MSS students. There are numerous career events throughout the Fall and Spring semesters hosted by the department, including MSS Industry Day, Alumni Day, and the MS and Ph.D. Graduate Career Fair (hosted by the Duke Career Center) among others.

We support broad engagement with the campus community through data dialogues, invited industry discussions, DataFest competition, and other projects to allow our students to explore the world of statistics and data science and understand the challenges associated with translating data into application.

Our students can follow diverse career paths including Research/Ph.D. opportunities at renowned universities, or working with industry, government, or non-government organizations in various job roles.
