Given the proliferation of options for education in data analytics and data science, it is not easy to choose the right program to help one achieve his/her goals. Credit vs. non-credit; degree vs. non-degree; online vs. face-to-face vs. hybrid; quick vs. protracted are all questions facing those that want to further their education. In this session, I will help you learn what questions to ask of different programs in order to determine the best fit for YOU.
