Data Analytics and Data Science Program Interviews

OnlineEducation.com researches and provides in-depth information on online analytics programs, including online data science and online business intelligence programs. As part of our mission to help students find and research online analytics degree programs, we have started interviewing faculty and administrators from programs listed on the site. These interviews are designed to offer additional details about a program’s structure, its curriculum, and its pedagogical approach, so that prospective students can learn more about capstone projects, academic support services, and specializations/tracks. These interviews also offer insights on the pros and cons of pursuing an analytics degree online, and valuable advice for submitting a competitive application.
