    CMU Heinz 2018

    Thank you for your message myshuffle. I wanted to have economics and business oriented course in the program. Moreover, I did not know about new programs in data science field. My complete focus was on policy plus technology courses. However, I now feel that I should be focusing more on ML/Stats courses as I already have policy experience and in this CMU will help me more than UChicago. Later after graduation, even if I decided to go in technology domain then also CMU name will help me.

    CMU Heinz 2018

    Hello all, I am not able to finalise between CMU Heinz (MSPPM-Data Analytics) and UChicago (MSCAPP). I have received $10k scholarship from UChicago and 25% (around $24k) scholarship from -CMU. After graduation, I want to be Data Scientist/Analyst/technical consultant. MSCAPP is having great coursework which mainly focuses on Machine Learning/AI and lots of flexibility for selection of courses. CMU is also having good coursework but I do not know about flexibility of coursework selection. I want to take maximum number of technical/statistical courses as I am already having 3 years of public policy experience in Govt. of India and 2 years in IBM as Application Developer. I think CMU brand will help in becoming data scientist after graduation than UChicago. Guys need your suggestions.
