No, you don’t require a Ph.D. to become a Data Scientist, even though the greatest number of Ph.D.’s are present in the data scientist profession when compared with other professions. But the stats will make it clear, as only 20% of data scientists have Ph.D. and 75% have advanced degrees and the remaining 5% have just high school or associated degree. If you wish to become a data scientist then make your move by enrolling in the data scientist course from Intellipaat. Also, have a look at the YouTube video on How To Become A Data Scientist In 2021 from our team of experts to get started.
