Once a student completes their master's, most directly move to get a new job, but you know this is not the right approach. In my opinion, one should undertake at least one post-graduate certificate program to enhance your resume. 

Canada is the right place for a pg certificate because statistics have shown that after the completion of certificate courses, students’ employability rate has increased as compared to those that did not pursue any pg certification program. But you know the amount of experience that I have had after dealing with a lot of students, I have found that Canada does not has a lot of good pg certification programs, but the ones that are available there are absolutely fabulous and amazing. One more thing I would like to mention, is the specializations offered, so the students have an option to choose one of the below specializations:


  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Data Mining
  • Supply Chain Analytics
  • Big Data Analytics
  • Statistical Analysis
  • Informatics
  • Health Data Science and Biostatistics

So let me not waste your time and tell you all the great Canadian schools that offer the PG certifications in data science, these are the schools whose certification programs you can look up to:


  1. Douglas College: The name of the certification program in Data Analytics (Post Degree Diploma), it is a one-year program with the tuition fees of CAD 18,726
  2. Langara College: Langara provides a two-year diploma named Post-Degree Diploma in Data Analytics, which charges CAD 590 as tuition fees. 
  3. University of Calgary: Calgary university has a diploma program of 4 months, the name of the program is Diploma in Data Analytics and the tuition fee is CAD 4080. 
  4. Diploma courses are a really great addition after your graduation, they not only give an additional insight into the subjects but also help in upskilling yourself and giving you an extra edge over the competition and your fellow mates. 

You know the best thing that I like about these diploma courses is their duration, they are relatively shorter and also provide additional skills and information, What do you like about the diploma courses?
