Double Major in Quantitative Economics and Decision Sciences looking into Data Science


I am currently a junior studying economics and decision sciences. My DS degree is interdisciplinary having courses such as statistical analysis, coding, and data mining. My intern experiences are as an Investment banking analyst and as a congressional intern focusing on policies involving blockchain, AI, and P2P markets. I am interested in working in data science or in economic research. Either way gaining more experience in data analysis would be beneficial.

With my past experience being somewhat nonlinear to that of the typical data scientist, what things can I do while I am still in school to help go into a data-driven role?
