The Master of Data Science is a master’s degree in data science, an interdisciplinary field that uses scientific methods, processes, algorithms, and systems to extract knowledge and insights from data in various forms, both structured and unstructured, similar to data mining.
The primary purpose of data science is to create and leverage various forms of data in order to better understand trends and phenomena.
Typical data science program coursework features core classes in topics like applied statistics and hones in on lessons in programming skills such as SQL and Python.
In some programs, students may choose to specialize in such fields as business analytics or cybersecurity.
Tuition for one to two-year data science programs starts at $20,000 USD per academic year, although partial merit scholarships are available for high performing international students based on IELTS (6.5+) and TOEFL (90+) exam scores as well as CGPA and GRE (300+) or GMAT (550+) exam scores.
Many programs incorporate training and practical experience, in the form of research projects, presentations, and OPT and CPT opportunities.
