For undergraduate students of economics and management, statistics is a core course of the discipline and also an important course for cultivating students' research ability. The article establishes a statistics course system oriented to improve the quality of undergraduate thesis, proposes to add excellent thesis as a statistics teaching case, and fits the statistics course to improve the thesis selection and writing ability of undergraduate economics and management students by assigning professional survey report tasks and increasing statistical software practice. It provides support for reforming the statistics curriculum system and comprehensively cultivating innovative talents in economics and management from a new perspective.
