Slovenia, as a small country, has limited human resources. Eight years ago statisticians active in the Statistical Society of Slovenia established the country’s first university graduate program on statistics. It included biostatistics, mathematical statistics, official statistics and social statistics modules. The program was quite successful and became extremely important for statistical education and research in Slovenia. Recently, all university programs had to be reformed according to the Bologna principles. In renewing the doctoral statistical program, we added three new modules: economic and business statistics, psychological statistics and technical statistics. The interest expressed by other departments and faculties for inclusion in this doctoral program of statistics emphasizes both the original need for such a graduate program of statistics and its success.
