I’m sure those that have asked the same question are already aware of the current situation in the job market: companies are generating and collecting more data than ever, and they need people that are equipped with the necessary skills to derive actionable insights from the data to generate more profit.

This trend has spurred a series of new master’s programs from universities everywhere to satisfy this demand, and a lot of prospective students are asking the same questions that I was asking few years ago:

Do I need__a master’s to be a Data Scientist? Is it worth the time and money?

I’ve received a number of messages from prospective students asking similar questions, and my short, biased answer would be that yes, it’s worth the time and money, and it definitely helped me with my career. In reality though, it really depends on the individual.
