“What do you want to be when you grow up?” It’s a question kids around the world are asked a million times a day. Until a few years ago, the odds are good that none of them answered “I want to be a data scientist.” How, then, did we get any data scientists? For many, the answer lies in continuing education.
Over the last few years, as demand for data scientists heated up, we saw universities add full-fledged post-graduate programs in the field of data science. You can now get a PhD in data science, which is certainly a great way to kick start your career as a data scientist, although Master’s level programs are more prevalent and can also get you where you want to go.
