The Master of Information and Data Science (MIDS) program at UC Berkeley ranked #2 among online data science master’s degree programs by Fortune magazine, released on January 19, 2022.
This is Fortune’s first-ever ranking of the best online data science master’s programs(link is external). The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign took the top spot, and Texas Tech University was #3.
Regarding the decision to pursue these rankings, Fortune Education Editorial Director Lance Lambert said: “The exponential growth in data has translated into demand for data scientists and business analysts that greatly outpaces how fast universities can train them. In the coming years, these degree programs will continue to explode. And for good reason: According to the BLS, the average wage for data scientists is $103,930—a figure that rises to $148,680 in the Bay Area.”
