Avoiding common data interpretation errors

fri link candidate or a post on its own. i looked at the curriculum and i just don't think it is very mathematically rigorous nor computationally rigorous. how is it that these grads are getting high salaries?
..would like your comment.Delete
Majid, this is a good question and probably worthy of a whole post. I'd need to think about it for a while though. In the short run, there is a demand for anyone with an analytic tool set. I don't know how much it is that grads are actually getting high salaries vs hyperbole. Linda Burtch did a couple studies in this area that are worth checking out. Start with the "big data" one then the "data science" report. http://www.burtchworks.com/register_study.phpDelete
(You'll have to give up your email address to get access, but she's a recruiter specializing in quantitative professionals, so there are worse people to give your email address to. The worst she'd do to you is find you a job.)
I'll try and put together a post over the next week or so.
Oh, also. I don't know about the MS analytics program, but NCSU is top notch in statistics. US News has them as #15 for graduate statistics. I didn't dig into how much crossover (if any) there is between the stats department and the MS analytics program, however.Delete
