Data Science is a growing field with use across all industries. Data analytics, one sub-domain, is critical for all organizations today, and this field has job opportunities open even for students majoring in non-technology disciplines like economics, statistics, mathematics and econometrics. The fact is that for students who love numbers and business and have an interest in computers and technology, there is probably no career better than big data analytics today.
On the other hand, even for students of other disciplines with no career interest in data science or technology, knowledge of Data Science – particularly of big data analytics – is still important, because it helps them perform better in their careers. Make no mistake – in the years to come, knowing Data Science will become as important for all jobseekers and students as knowing computers and the Internet is today. Trends around the world clearly indicate that graduating students with knowledge and qualifications in Data Science are more attractive for all employers. Increasingly, a qualification in Data Science is emerging as the most important supporting qualification to have even for students looking at not-technical or non-data science careers.
