Data Science and Analytics

When it comes to the most coveted and in-demand jobs in the age of digitalization, data dominates. Data-driven decision-making is fast replacing gut-level heuristics in most aspects of business and academics, including marketing, product design, human resources, research and experimentation, and customer experience. Data Scientist is the number one job in the U.S., according to Glassdoor’s “Best Jobs” report, which is determined by three factors – number of job openings, salary and overall job satisfaction rating. Data Engineer and Analytics Manager are also included in the top five.
