Where to Get a Master’s Degree in Big Data

Data SquaresMcKinsey & Company predicts a shortage of deep analytical talent of as many as 190,000 people by 2018, which means there should be abundant opportunities for Big Data analysts and business intelligence experts in the coming years. No wonder universities are coming up with a variety of master’s programs.

These new programs are “using business intelligence and other analytical tools to turn social media, sensor, purchase transactions, mobile and other sources of big data into useful information for business and government,” says Computerworld. Many applicants are signing up not straight out of school, but after several years in the IT workforce.

    Any suggestions for someone with an M.L.S. who wants to work in the business intelligence field? What degree or certificate can get me into a job where I can pull reports off a database with or without doing some programming?
