This is a cool video on why statisticians and data analysts will be more and more in demand.
I really enjoyed this video by Hal Varian chief economist of Google. I have my degrees in statistics so of course I am biased. That said, I teach many MBA and Business Ph.D. students and tell them the importance of telling a story with the findings of data. In the end the business people must learn to leverage the findings of the data analysts and statisticians. If they can’t then all the findings will be of no use if no one understands. This is good news for business majors, you’re not out of a job anytime soon, at least if you are good at making graphing and presenting statistical findings.
So do you think statisticians are sexy? Share?
