In simple words, YES. The data science certificate by Microsoft is beneficial to your profile and qualifications. In a way, it acts like action to your current expertise and skill sets. And this is exactly the reason why you should not take it as the most obvious choice. Don't misunderstand me; I'm ready for the Microsoft data science certification. However, you should know a few things before you make any decision.

If you are a data science professional or graduate, this Microsoft Azure data science certification will do great for you. With this certification, you will be eligible to apply for many advanced-level jobs. A data science degree and this certification will make your profile stronger than ever. Many industry professionals also tend to get the Azure data science certification. Just consider it as a small MBA that adds up to your caliber.

The skills that you get to learn in this certification are:

  1. governance
  2. managing identities
  3. deploying & managing resources
  4. implementing & managing storage
  5. configuring & managing virtual networks

So the thighs that I wanted you to know is how a data science certification works. As I mentioned, it works fine with your profile if you are a data science professional or a graduate. But if you are a fresher looking for a start in data science, the certification will not do enough for you. It is a pretty hefty qualification and capable of landing many jobs in the industry. However, you won't get the best out of it with just a certificate.

Data scientists' average salary at prime locations is 70-90 lakhs per annum. These professionals are all data science graduates. So you have to do at least one masters in data science if you want a serious career out of it. Otherwise, you may get to the top, but it will be quite rough and may not happen in the worst-case scenario. So target a master's in data acne first, then go for the Microsoft data science certification.
