    Hello Ken !! Nice Video. I have a small doubt , is it good to have some Tableau Skills to add to Data Science resume ? I was planning on going through some MOOCs but thought about checking with you once , before I proceed ahead . Thanks in advance. 🙏🙏

    Hey Ken! What is the difference between a masters in Data Science vs a masters in Business Analytics?

    Great video! Do you have any videos about your experience at Depaul? I'm enrolling next year.

    This is a good video. Tina's advice/input on course-based masters was definitely useful. I wish I knew about that going into my master's program. I'm doing research now that my professor plans to get published, but it took a lot of work to get to this spot. I don't know of any other master's student in my program doing research. Tina's right that generally, those opportunities are only available for undergrads and PhD students. I want to do an independent study in reinforcement learning to close out my last semester (next semester) but I already know that since I'm not a PhD student or curious undergrad, the chances of me getting that opportunity are slim to none. I'm hopeful that instead I might just continue to do research under the professor I'm currently working with. Course based masters definitely can be good, but it's also good to be aware of the possible cons that they can come with, and I think this video does a good job of explaining those pros and cons. I'll have to add this topic to the list of video ideas I got.

    Great video and all very relevant points.
    Currently doing my M.Sc. in Data Science with the university of London. I'm also working full-time and I will honestly not recommend anyone doing the program full-time while working full-time if you aren't already working in data science or have a strong base in the field. I'm in 4 classes this semester, and while I have a strong math background and comfortable programming in python, my programming skills are not the greatest and I am new to the Data Science field. I have found the time commitment to be a lot. Next semester I am definitely not taking more than 3 courses.

    The editing keeps elevating!
    I have a video suggestion: best ways to build an online presence as a data analyst/scientist. Like should it just be git, or YouTube and a website. What content to put up etc
