Alice Mi, Weibo Zhang, and Nicholas Shengjun Wang were three graduates of the MA Statistics program that participated in a stat-a-thon model building competition. They presented their work at the New England Statistical Symposium on a customer retention model from property insurance policy data from an insurance company and came in 2nd place. Alice stated, “Columbia University is a great community to meet collaborative intellectual minds.”

Starting 2019, we recognize MA students with distinguished academic performance in a Chair’s List of Academic Achievement.  Full-time students who are highly recommended by their professors and/or earn a 4.0 GPA in approved electives during their first fall and spring semesters, and part-time students who earn the same during their first two fall and spring semesters, will be recognized.
