hi, what kind of career options do i have if i i.e. get a masters degree in statistics? previously i studied abstract algebra, but found it to be a bit too theoretical. i did finish my masters degree, but i really don't want to work in abstract algebra for the rest of my life. so now i'm taking a few courses in statistics(multivariate analysis, etc).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

are there any courses or 'themes' you recommend taking? should i eventually get a masters degree in statistics as well, or is single courses 'enough'?

what do i need to get a job in the financial 'world' or as an analyst for say an oil company? is 'pure' statistics enough, or is finance courses required...?
