Pointman92Pointman92 Registered User Posts: 2 New Member
I am graduated and have a job as a data analyst. I was wondering what graduate program should I do later on in my life if any?

I have been thinking of an MBA program, but I have also been thinking of an MS in statistics or an MA in Economics.

I am just looking for a friendly discussion to give me ideas, like in my shoes what would you do?

About me:

GPA: 3.2
Major GPA: 3.8
Knowledge and proficient in : SQL, C#, R, C++, Python, Angular. Also, data mining, machine learning, machine processing, embedded systems. I also love Linux and UNIX systems!!

Currenly learning new data processing techniques and ember

:) Thank you!

    I would say Economics so you have more of a background and more job options later on

    I think it depends on what route you want to take. A pursuit in data science with focus on the engineering and research would probably benefit from an MS in Stats/Math while an MBA would probably help you if you want to go towards a Product Manangement/Managerial position within a data science team. It kind of depends on what companies you would be interested in as data analysts are organized differently and how much emphasis they place on data in their strategic decisions.

    At this point in time, you should mainly be concerned with doing your job and doing it well. (I saw your other thread where you are just getting started.) In time, you should find out what you like and what direction you want to take in your career. That will help you to determine what would be best course of study, if any as you said.

    ^^^^^Agree. Work hard, do well and then determine if your future will lie in MIS or if you want to go down another path.
