Top 10 Best Data Science Universities for Undergraduation and Masters

According to the Future of Data Talent Report which was released on Wednesday, the innovations in artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IOT) technology have generated large amounts of data in the business, which is potentially generating billions of dollars. However, due to lack of supply, companies struggled to find data talent.

Nearly 40% of companies said that they are unable to retain or hire new data scientists due to lack of talent. The demand for these skills will increase at a tremendous rate and according to report it is found that 5.6 million new data-related job postings are expected to hit the Global job market by 2020.

The research shows that, most of the strong data science talents are produced by technical and well-known universities. So Let's talk about Top 10 well-known and Technical Data Science Universities for Undergraduation and Masters.
