Employment Prospects for Data Scientists

Data… “How do we organize it?” and  “How do we create knowledge from it?”

These are the questions employers want answered and are aggressively looking for individuals who possess the skills to find the solutions.  A career in Data Science is relatively new, and therefore few individuals have the skills to meet current job requirements.  This makes our data science students highly sought after for internships and full-time positions at both large corporations and start-ups.

Some of the companies employing NYU Data Science students for full time positions include:

  • AIG
  • Amazon
  • BNY Mellon
  • Capital One Labs
  • Da Vinci Media Ventures
  • Facebook
  • Goldman Sachs
  • Google

The Future Looks Bright…

A report by McKinsey Global Institute predicts by 2018 there will be about 1.5 million more jobs than skilled data scientists to fill those jobs.  This bodes well for anyone thinking of moving into data science, or even augmenting their current resume with data science skills.  The NYU Data Science master’s and doctoral programs will prepare you to work in industry, academia or government, as well as facilitate connections to employers most interested in data science.
