I am looking for some guidance. What
is the natural progression for a data
scientist? Currently, with 2 YOE, I am
building models and consulting the
client. How will my role change
overtime? What should I do to better
prepare myself for the future? Should I
consider doing an MBA?
Thanks in advance!
