1.

Background:

UCLA-

有独立的统计学院,不论是综合排名还是专业排名都很靠前,主要方向是应用统计

学。

GaTech-

没有独立的统计学院,项目由

Schools of Mathematics (Math)

Industrial and Systems

Engineering (ISyE)

共同管理,学生选择灵活,既可以选择偏向应用性质的课程,也可以选择

数学系的课程为

PHD

做准备。但其无论是综合排名还是专业排名都不如

UCLA

UCSD-

统计学设在数学系下,分为

Mathematical Statistics

Applied Statistics

两个方向,但

两个方向都有具体的数学要求,所以感觉在理论方面要求还是比较高的。

从各学校项目的背景来看,

UCLA

是较理想的选择。

很明显,

UCLA

的地理位置相对优越,能为就业提供比较理想的环境。

UCLA

师资雄厚,教师们的学术背景和所交内容很贴近商业领域的应用统计学。

GaTech

老师们来自两个不同的系,都侧重各自的专业特点,在统计方面的教学可能不会像

UCLA

那么 specific

UCSD

由于项目在数学系下,统计专业的老师不多,并且最牛的那几个老师

还是做 biostatistics

的,因此不大符合那位同学的要求。

48 units of course credit subject to adviser approval are needed. Up to 8 of them can be from upper-division Mathematics. Up to 8 of them can be graduate courses in other departments.

Mathematics 295 and 500 generally don't count toward those 48 units, and neither do seminar courses, unless the student's participation is substantial. Fulltime students are generally required to register for at least 12 units per quarter.

The M.S. in Statistics is designed to provide recipients with a strong mathematical background and experience in statistical computing with various applications. Out of the 48 units of credit needed, required core courses comprise 28 units, including:

Mathematics 281A-B-C (Mathematical Statistics)

Mathematics 282A-B (Applied Statistics)

and any two topics comprising eight (8) units chosen freely from Mathematics 287A-B-C-D and

289A-B-C.

从课程要求来看,

UCLA

设有

Statistical Models in Finance

等这样极贴近商业运作的统计学

课程,而其他两所则没有这样比较职业导向的课程设置,另外,

UCSD

对数学要求比较高。

综上所述,

UCLA

以其良好的声誉,优越的地理位置以及比较务实的专业定位和课程设置,

应该能够成为该同学的 target school
