How useful is an MBA to work in Data Science?

I saw HKUST MBA was offering lots of data courses, will I be able to move to data science?

  • Data is everywhere and you will need to handle large quantities of data in most work outside of data department: Finance, supply, strategy, marketing or product management.
  • SQL is no longer a dirty language restrained to nerds. In more classical MNC, the ability to crunch data will make you progress your career really fast. In tech company, it will be expected from you anyway.
  • Understanding the impact of data, analytic and digitalization is essential to understand the business strategy of most companies nowadays.
  • Data is fun

But I really want to get into data related role…

Understand your competitive advantage…
