For a data science master's, you should consider how much you are involved with STEM education. The course itself is listed as a STEM program. And unlike any combined or STEM-designated courses, these are a real deal. The STEM principles in data science are part of the curriculum.

I want to suggest the USA for data science as a location preference. The USA has been the top choice for programs like MSc. Data Science. More related programs that share similarities are also best available in the USA. The reason for this is the industries set up in the country. Data science jobs are mainly involved with analyzing information and decision-making. And the USA is a hub for IT and MNCs. Logically, the career options in data science are much better in the USA than in any other country.

In case you are in search of universities I have some recommendations. It's a two-part suggestion, one for the best ones and the second for a little more affordable. So for the very best, you can aim for universities like Harvard, Carnegie Mellon and Stanford. These are top dogs in data science universities in the USA. On the other hand, I would suggest universities like Duke, Indiana and New York University. These are also A-tier universities with INR 20-25 lakh/year tuition ranges.

All of this would become irrelevant if your academic profile does not fit the options. Why don't you share your profile? Maybe then I would be able to see what MS Data Science programs you are eligible for abroad.
