REPORT OF THE SEMINAR CONDUCTED BY THE STATISTICS ASSOCIATION, DEPARTMENT OF STATISTICS,ON 27TH AUGUST 2016

“CAREER OPPORTUNITIES AND INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS OF STATISTICS”

The Alumni of the Department of Statistics, Mithibai College, Mr.Nahush Sathe(Fellow at Teach for India, Analyst at Baerlocher India Additives and Tarang Shah(Manager, Risk Analyst at Kotak and Mahindra Bank)   were invited to impart and share their knowledge on how statistics is applied in various fields. They spoke about their journey after graduation and the important decisions they had to take. The speakers kept the atmosphere light enough for the students to feel free to ask them any questions.
The seminar commenced by welcoming the speakers with a bouquet of flowers. The first speaker, Mr. Tarang Shah informed us about the career opportunities after M.Sc. Statistics. He explained in detail about the various application of statistics in the industry such as actuarial science, risk analysis, market analysis, valuation of a product, etc. The stage was then taken over by Mr. Nahush Sathe had a lot of gyan about the ISI (Indian Statistical Institute) and IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) entrance exams and studying opportunities abroad. They also collectively spoke about the varied starting pay packages one can get and the courses that could further increase their scope at attracting better job offers such as FRM (Financial Risk Management), CFA (Certified Financial Analyst) and other programming software such as SAS, SQL and R software which is mainly used in the industry.
There was a question answer session where the students could clear their queries. The students undoubtedly benefited from the seminar. All the questions were well answered by Mr. Tarang Shah and Mr. Nahush Sathe. The seminar guided the students in the right direction giving them a clear view of the future scenario.
On 22nd January 2016, Statistics Association organized an event on “ Application of Statistics”. The main motto of conducting this event was to give a background of the variety of applications of statistics in different fields like Finance, Marketing, Statistical Geography, Statistical Mathematics, Biostatistics, Chemo metrics, Statistical Physics, Social Statistics and the list goes on  the students who study the subject (theory + practical) but are not aware of its humungous applications outside in the real world.
Students of first year, second year and the third year actively participated in drawing this awareness to all the other students by making presentations and delivering the same. It was only with the continuous support of the teachers and the staff that the students could put in their efforts in making the presentations. The panel of judges were Dr. Ujwala Deshmukh, Mr. Chaitanya Alshi and Mr. Amrit Rajwadkar.
The judges interacted with the students by asking them questions on their presentations and The students were also judged on various skills. At the end of the event they were awarded by I/C Principal Dr. D.V.Kamat. Last but not the least the overwhelming response from the audience without whom the event would not have been successful.
The journey of this event was fascinating as all the students of the department were exposed to so many applications that indeed this will help them somewhere in their career even if they do not major in Statistics.
