I was drawn to the program’s focus on diversity, teamwork, and interdisciplinary training. The MIDS program emphasizes the importance of acquiring technical and soft skills, as well as practical experience in the industry. It also provides a lot of flexibility to allow us to apply the core data science skills to any particular field.
