  1. Master's Statistics: Columbia v/s Duke

    I would like to work as a data scientist and I want to get into data industry with no interest in PhD. I am confused between these two because - 1. Location: Columbia is in new york and thus a better place to be in terms of networking and opportunities while Durham is a small place. 2. Course structure: Duke's structure seems more serious and focused and would serious data companies fancy that as compared to Columbia? 3. Thesis & internship: Duke has a thesis, as well as internship requirement while Columbia doesn't. Does thesis matter to recruiters? Thanks a lot!
  2. Hi, If getting a job in companies like IBM,microsoft, amazon (basically tech) is the end goal of studying a program, which program is better? Thanks!
  3. Columbia and Uwash have started sending out decisions I believe.
