Hi all, I am trying to figure out the best way to transition into a new career. I obtained my undergraduate degree in mathematics in 2010. Up until the beginning of my senior year I was determined to go on to do a PhD in pure mathematics. However, I started second guessing myself when I saw a very talented student who was 2 years ahead of me drop out of his PhD program. My motivation for going to graduate school was pretty superficial. I thought it was just what a pure math major was supposed to do. So instead of applying to grad school I signed up for a graduate level algebra course as a non-degree seeking student the following semester and began interning for a small non-profit organization. I passed the course with a B, but really didn't see a math PhD as my calling. I enjoyed my internship, so I took a job as a manager with the non-profit instead of grad school.Currently, my job consists of writing proposals for grant funding, creating marketing materials, and managing donor/donation databases.However, I've reached a point in my career where I do not think I can gain much more from my current job. My school debts are completely paid off now and I am ready for a new challenge. I just finished taking the first offering of Computer Science 6.00x through MIT and EDX. I loved the course. I was especially fond of programming Monte Carlo simulations to solve problems related to epidemiology. I am now signed up for a coursera course on Machine Learning through Stanford. Data science really seems like a career I would like to pursue. Does anyone have any reccomendations for how someone of my background could enter this field? Is there a master's level program that would prepare me for this type of work?
