Jour Fixe Master Statistics

The fourth Jour Fixe will take place on Monday April 29th at 5:30 p.m. in room  22 (HU Berlin, Spandauer Str. 1). The Jour Fixe offers a great opportunity for informal exchange between lectures and students. Especially regarding the introduction of new specialization areas such as “Data Science” and general feedback about the courses and the structure of the master program.

Afterwards, at around 6:30 p.m., the new professor for statistics, Sonja Greven will talk about Statistical methods for functional and object data

Semester Break Training Courses

Traning courses during the semester break are offered by FU:stat. The courses are concerned with programming (R, SPSS) and hypothesis testing and more.

The complete course list with additional information can be found here.
