I discovered machine learning a year back and have been thinking of making it into a full time career.
One option is to start a predictive analytics/statistics masters, possibly online. The current choices are Northwestern, Colorado State, Penn State and University College of Dublin.
Another option I am thinking about is to get the certificate in Data Analytics from Statistics.com and follow it up with an Executive MBA.
However, I would be 36 by the time I finish a masters and would like to start immediately; maybe even get related a job. Currently, I reside at Muscat, Oman and have 9+ years of experience in Information Technology (IT) consulting, support and as a project tech lead.
I am looking for some assistance and hope that I have not come to the wrong place.
