The cost of studying Data Science

Simply Statistics has a ("non-comprehensive") breakdown of costs associated with various data science educational programs. The list includes MOOCs and traditional degree programs at the Masters and Doctoral levels. Check it out.


Full disclosure: The guys at Simply Statistics are teaching the JHU data science certificate course. There are many other programs that are ostensibly data science programs as well, whether they call themselves "data science" or otherwise. (They did say it was non-comprehensive, after all.)
