Program description

Now more than ever, data science is shaping how we talk about the news and other topics of public interest thanks to the proliferation of digital technology. Keeping up with fascinating applications, cutting-edge discoveries, or contentious debates can be challenging.

There is a high demand for data scientists due to the vigor of the field. With the rise of data literacy, many companies are employing "Citizen Data Scientists" whose primary responsibilities lie outside of data science but who nonetheless build models using advanced diagnostic analytics. With this context in mind, it's clear why businesses need the assistance of data science professionals when it comes to creating and evaluating hypotheses.

Current trends in software and infrastructure engineering, as well as Big Data technology, are at the heart of our online Master of Data Science program. Complete your problem-solving toolkit and how to approach data science challenges with a focused, analytical, and logical mindset.
