which do you think is the smarter choice, in terms of employ-ability: ms in statistics or Ms in data science? do you think "data science" is just a buzz words that will die out? is a data scientist someone who can't program as well as the computer engineer, and can't build models as well as a statistician - a jerk of all trades, master of none? And is a jack of all trades a favorable trait to have in data analysis, esp in the age of computers? Or do you think people will realize that it is best to have statisticians build the models and then have programmers do the programming? But are not most statistics models just overkill for industry? programming skills are more important today in data analysis?
