Hi All,

I'm wondering if anyone here knows of any accredited online graduate healthcare data science programs? I'm trying to pivot my database developer analyst background towards data science and am hoping to specialize in healthcare. My searches have only turned up masters programs, and since I already have a masters in software engineering, I'm not sure it's worth pursuing another. I was hoping to come across doctorate (not PhD) programs, but they don't really seem to exist at this point in time. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I would be interested in this as well, but for PhDs.  I have two masters already (an MBA and one in public policy).  I work in healthcare analytics already but would like to go from analytics to data science.

Hi All,

It's been a while. Since my original post, I've enrolled in a bootcamp for AI and Machine Learning, but I've still been looking for a non PhD doctorate in Data Science, as I already have a Masters, and I'd like to ultimately get into a leadership role in the field. I came across a Doctorate of Business Administration in Data Science, but it's not based in the States and can take 3 years. I've also come across some programs, but with strictly online schools, i.e. Capella University, Grand Canyon University, etc., which I'm a bit leery about as far as reputation. Then there's the Doctorate of Business Intelligence, a DBA program at Marymount University, but I have yet to come across a doctorate of business administration in data science. I'm not so much interested in a PhD, because I don't want to be confined to academia or research. The other advantage of a doctorate (DBA), to my understanding, is that they take less time. I'm honestly very surprised that there aren't more online dba programs in data science in the States with reputable institutions. If anyone knows of any, please feel free to chime in. Thanks!
