Mr Jurie Schoeman and the BSG team visited the third year and postgraduate students in the Department of Statistics at Rhodes University in March 2019. The team discussed the BSG intership program and graduate placement program. Dr Julia Keddie took the students through a complete statistical analysis of a current BSG consulting project. This very interesting and highly informative session clearly demonstrated the practical application of the statistical concepts and theory that the students are learning in their courses. The BSG team strongly recommended that the students consider a career as a data scientist and provided many practical and useful tips and suggestions for the students with regards further study and career opportunities.
The department would like to thank Jurie and Julia for a highly informative presenation and discussion.
