Piggy backing off the post earlier this week - what are the top analytics-related programs? I know Georgia tech and Berkeley have good programs. Ncsu as well? Others that are more theory based?

Top in what way? I'd rank "top" on class availability (actual, not just advertised), instructor availability, instructor research interests, industry capstone quality, brand names of supporting companies, university's undergrad brand name, starting pay for top 30% of graduates, and number of alum events in major metropolitan areas. Unfortunately, no one's actually made a list like this.

North Carolina state university indeed. Mostly SAS implementation though. Carnegie Mellon is up there, duke MQM - business analytics. Most top b school should now have analytics masters or concentrations (Darden, Sloan etc)

Does anyone have insights into the interview process at Dalberg?


Hi, I just really need a safe space to vent because I’m feeling like the most horrible person in the world. Married ~ 3 years ago and he hasn’t been able to work due to immi issues so we’ve been living on my 145k salary (for mortgage, car note, utilities, etc) and the occasional Instacart he does with my account. We also have a 1 year old that stays home with us (I work from home).

I am a Data Scientist but I am doing Tableau work right now since the Tableau Developer left. They are working on getting a new person. However, I have to work on dashboards for now. My current project's dashboards are more complicated than what I worked on before. Do you think it is worth it to sit for the Tableau Certified Associate exam? Or at least study for it. I have some knowledge gaps even though I already have the Desktop Specialist certificate.

If anyone has dealt with this situation, I'm curious what you've done or seen.
If a company hired you into a certain role and responsibility, and then years later hired someone else to handle the exact same tasks, in a higher level position you were denied, and failed to find you new responsibilities... Would you work with the same leadership team to redefine your role? Or pack up?

Unbranched from my last post :

What are the ultimate career goals for someone with our experience and skillsets?

Data, Analytics, Consulting, Industry/functional
experience, maybe some tech..

Is it to be a Chief Data Officer or similar?

I've worked closely with several CDOs, and I'm not sure it's my dream..

I'm tired of showing organizations how to be "data-driven".
I think I can't stomach more "data governance" programs.

Having said that, I know a few CDOs with TC >$1M.
