UWash iSchool MSIM vs CMU MISM 16 month track (Not BIDA)
My Background:
BE in Computers, Mumbai University, TSEC (2014 passout)
Business Technology Analyst at Deloitte Consulting working on BI projects (Jan 2015 to present)
Want to specialise in Data Science and Business Intelligence
I like the curriculum of both programs,which makes this decision much tougher for me. Hence, seeking your perspective on both the programs in terms of :
1. Overall opinion
2. Academic Experience wrt Data Science/Business Intelligence tracks
3. Job opportunities in the Data Science/Business Intelligence field and the average salaries
4. Internship Opportunities. Availability of TA/GA and on campus jobs
5. ROI
6. Its getting difficult for me to find any negativities for both courses. Any difficulties/experiences will be welcome
I am sure there are folks who must have chosen one of the two programs above, or were interested in these programs.
Your thoughts on why you chose /did not choose the program will be greatly helpful to me.
Thanks.
