What Can I Do With a Data & Project Management Degree?

Data science and project management are two rapidly growing fields. Students interested in one or both fields can get started by attending our Data and Project Management program. There are numerous careers you can obtain with this one degree. 

Data Science & Project Management: Two Careers Paths, One Degree

With a Data and Project Management degree, you’re able to choose from entry-level careers in two different paths: Data science and project management. Some of the data science careers include:

  • Data analyst: A data analyst gathers company and customer data and analyzes it to obtain insights. As a result, they help businesses make critical decisions needed for growth. They also help sort data, create databases and perform database maintenance.
  • Data science technician: Similar to data analysts, data science technicians specialize in large sets of data. They use their analytical skills to collect and interpret data sets on behalf of their organization.

If you’re more interested in project management, this program will teach you the ropes you need for success in entry-level careers like:

  • Project manager assistant: Project manager assistants work alongside project managers to help wrangle projects on behalf of their organization. For example, they might assist a marketing project manager in tasks required to complete a new marketing initiative.
  • Data project manager: A data project manager uses data to inform how a project should be managed and completed.
