Department of Statistics
The Department of Statistics at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München addresses the full range of statistical data analysis in both research and teaching.
Our research is focused on the development and application of statistical methods in life science, the social sciences as well as economic science. The research is at the highest international level and is based on the interplay between application and methodological innovation in cooperation with our academic and non-academic partners. There is also an emphasis on knowledge transfer into the community through the statistical consulting unit “Stablab”.
We offer modern bachelor and master degrees at one of the leading statistical research centers in Germany. Furthermore, service courses for students with a minor in Statistics or students in other fields of studies are taught. In cooperation with the Institute of Informatics we have introduced the first elite master program in Data Science in Germany. It deals with the science of extracting knowledge and information from data and requires competencies in both statistics and computer science.
