SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) is one of the most commonly used statistic software packages for data manipulation and analysis.
Gaining knowledge of SPSS means that you are ready to play your part in fields that can best utilise this expertise. The best possible applications are getting a master’s degree in sociology or psychology since they have the widest application for SPSS. You can also pursue a career in statistics with a master’s in mathematics and sub-specialities of statistics which can help you get job opportunities as a market analyst, financial consultant or even alongside doctors in their clinical trials. A relatively unknown but well-paying option is to get a bachelor’s or a master’s degree as a software tutor.
Another route is to get a degree in business administration which has clear advantages for those who are well versed with SPSS. The combination of SPSS with use in projects such as financial statement analysis is a valuable asset that is heavily sought after by employers.
