See, the point is their numerous courses out there for data science, the most important thing is if you are choosing the right university or not because this is what will give you the right skills and knowledge with the right people. Yes! Networking matters. Therefore you need to be admitted to the university in which you would get all the above benefits. 

So, I have mentioned 4 top universities and their programs that will help you get the best placements after your graduation. But I would like to add one more thing, there’s no doubt that this industry is facing a huge shortage of individuals, this doesn’t ensure your entry into the greatest of all companies. The industry is deprived of “Skilled” professionals, therefore you need to make sure that your skills and abilities are top-notch. 

This is the list of the programs and the university from which you can pursue it: 

  1. MIT’s Master of Business Analytics- MIT is one of the most prestigious universities for data science programs and its Master of Business Analytics course will give you the right insights and skills that you need to get into data analytics. 
  2. Stanford’s MSc in Statisctics; Data Science- We all know that Stanford is another leading US university in AI research and data science. This course will give you the necessary tools and skills in statistics. This course is more of a computational-focused course that will provide you with the right insights into software development and other related works. 
  3. Carnegie Melon’s Master of computational data science-  Renowned for research and accomplishments in AI and data science, Carnegie melon’s course gives you the opportunity to study with two of the greatest pioneers of the modern-day artificial intelligence development
  4. University of Toronto’s Master of Science in Applied Computing: Data Science- The course from this university will also provide you with an internship opportunity of 8 months, in which you can apply your theoretical knowledge into practice and have a real-life experience and exposure to the things and put your skills into practice. 

All the above universities are the best for data science programs and they have an impeccable employment rate with the companies that are among the top ones in the world. 

The top companies in which you can get a job opportunity after your graduation are: 

  • Wipro
  • IBM
  • Cloudera
  • Splunk
  • Numerator

Let me know if you need any help with knowing the admission qualifications in the above-mentioned universities.
