What should you look for in a data analyst master’s degree?

I’ve worked with students from a number of different data analyst masters programs over many years. I’ve found there generally is a difference in how well they’re prepared for their first full time job as a data analyst depending on the program.

These are general guidelines of what I’d look for in a masters program.

Can you be successful without them? Of course!

But if you’re trying to choose from a multitude of options, these are things you’ll want to look for.

Keep in mind the goal of getting a degree. For most people, It isn’t to be the most technically skilled person. Yes, you’ll certainly be building a lot of skills. But the real goal is to prepare you to be effective in finding and working in a position.
