Presentation of the Statistics Analysts (AS) course
Statistics Analysts are application middle managers whose role is the design, collection, analysis and dissemination of statistical production. Opened in 2020 following the results of the pedagogical renovation of RESA (African Statistical Schools Network) training courses , the training covers three school years and includes both theoretical courses, tutorials and three to four months of practical work experience in the field.
Inquiries on the Opening of the Statistics Analysts (AS) course
The environment of RESA’s schools is strongly marked by academic and technological transformations (Licence, Master and Doctorate reform, IT revolution) and by the evolution of the profession of statistician and data analysis specialist (Big Data, Machine, Artificial Intelligence, etc.) which require immediate adaptation, at the risk of a drop in the quality of teaching and isolation, which are detrimental on the international university scene. The creation of a new course for middle management in statistics with a three-years university degree level called Statistics Analysts (AS) responds to the need to provide new trained students with statistical skills.
