Statistics Programs at ECNU

  The probability and statistics program started at East China Normal University as a laboratory in 1960 at the time when Prof. Zongshu WEI (1912-1996), a PhD from Iowa state, was the leading applied mathematical statistician in Shanghai.

  Established in 1984 with Prof. Shisong MAO as its inaugural chair, ECNU's mathematical statistics department is the first of its kind in China. In 1985, the official journal of Chinese Probability and Statistical Society started and established its editorial office at ECNU.

  Over the years, mathematical statistics department has expanded into the school of finance and statistics; comprising of Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science (2007), Department of Risk Management and Insurance (2007), Department of Financial Engineering (2010), Statistics and Actuarial Science Consultancy Center (2006), Biostatistics Center (2008), and Academy of Applied Statistical Science (2010).

  The school is now staffed by 36 full-time statistics faculty members and several distinguished faculty affiliates. In addition to formal courses, the department organizes seminars and colloquia in which statisticians of international reputation give presentations.

  The placement record of our graduates has been excellent. Our recent master's graduates have pursued careers split evenly between industry, finance and government. PhD graduates have mostly sought positions at universities and research institutes and some took jobs in the finance industry commensurate with their training and PhD dissertations.
