I’m in brand management but want to pivot to sustainability analytics. Any tips? Should I spend the $ to get a data focused certificate? For context I have a BA in Literature, Sustainable Innovation MBA, and a Master’s Environmental Law & Policy.

How long are you post-degree (any)?

You may be able to target a post-MBA sort of position.

My guess is that a lot of sustainability analytics is going to be deck-driven advocacy and not data science-lite.

I finished my MBA in Aug 2020.
Been in my current assistant brand manager job since.
