Master of Statistics and Operations Research
Statistics were increasingly relevant to my career; a desire to rejuvenate my understanding of statistics led me to post graduate studies. I wanted to be able to answer key statistics questions that were posing challenges at work.
I’m fascinated by patterns in numbers, and understanding whether concepts and beliefs are supported by data.

I selected RMIT’s Master of Statistics and Operations Research because of its operations research. The program structure, with evening classes, made it convenient to combine work and studies.
Understanding and analysing data is important in my current role, which involves sales forecasting. The program has helped me to increase my understanding of statistics, its strengths and limitations.
It also teaches better ways of presenting data and helping non-statisticians to understand data, which is really useful in the workplace. The program content is very relevant and I’ve been able to readily apply what I’m learning.
The enlightenment of study has been fantastic, as I anticipated. Meeting new friends with shared interests has been a fantastic, unexpected bonus.
I’m keen to find new and better ways of forecasting sales. I am interested in all forms of data analysis across a broad area of applications, from consumer goods to sports analysis.
I am considered, passionate and intuitive.
I love beautiful patterns in data that lead to well-founded understandings, assumptions and assured plans.
