2024 AS  Examination Application Deadline: 9 February 2024

ENSEA’s undergraduate Statistics Analysts program trains application managers whose role is the design, collection, analysis and dissemination of statistical output. Opened in 2020 following the results of the educational reform of the Africa Statistical Schools Network (RESA) schools’ training courses, the training lasts three academic years and includes theoretical courses, tutorials and three to four months of practical fieldwork.

RESA schools’ environment is strongly marked by academic and technological transformations (LMD reform, IT revolution) and by the evolution of the statistician’s job and data analysis specialist (Big Data, Machine, Artificial Intelligence, etc.) which require immediate adaptation, at the risk of a drop in teaching quality and isolation, which are detrimental on the international university scene. The creation of a new course for middle-level statistics managers at the secondary education baccalaureate + 3 years of university level called Statistical Analysts (AS) responds to the need to give new statistical skills to students trained.

C’est un avantage pour moi d’avoir été formée à l’ENSEA. Le désir profond qui m’a attiré vers la statistique est de travailler activement au progrès économique et social de mon pays. J’ai reçu ici une formation solide et de qualité irréprochable. J’exhorte donc mes consœurs encore en formation générale dans les séries scientifiques à se présenter au concours d’entrée à l’ENSEA.

Je suis étudiante à l’ENSEA et d’origine libérienne. Si vous êtes anglophone ou lusophone, si vous désirez côtoyer des personnes de diverses cultures, et à la recherche d’un établissement pour apprendre le français et/ou poursuivre une formation en statistique ou en économie, l’ENSEA est l’endroit idéal pour vous.

Abigaël JALA, AD Graduate 2018

Malgré toutes ces années après ma formation dans cet excellent temple du savoir en matière de statistique et d’économie, c’est toujours un sentiment de fierté et de gratitude à l’endroit du peuple ivoirien, mais surtout à l’endroit de ces braves enseignants de l’ENSEA qui depuis plus de 3 décennies ont pris le relais et tiennent la dragée haute au CSD et l’ENSAI de Paris.
