Question: how do you use statistics in your job?

I am soon to be teaching a statistics course to masters of accounting students. I want to be able to motivate their learning of the material in relation to how they will actually use what they are learning when they begin their career or as their career progresses.

Can anyone provide examples of when you (or someone you work with) uses statistics in their job tasks?

Particularly, things such as regression (linear, nonlinear, and logistic), hypothesis testing, t-tests, etc. Things that might fall under the lable "data analytics."

The more details you can provide, the better.

Thanks in advance.
