Premium vs. Cost Savings
We heard a lot about online education being able to lower the cost of higher ed. This goes the opposite direction -- a way to get a degree to market quickly and capture a premium by meeting a perceived skill shortage.

Money matters
You can certainly find less expensive MOOCs, however, this is a master's degree program from a respected university, so it is a different animal from a one-off online course. Also you are paying for access to that UC Berkeley alumni network -- no small matter in the Bay area. Would a one-year timeframe make it more appealing, readers?

Big data salaries
The companies themselves have driven up the pay offers, right? The West coast data science salary bubble won't last forever, but demand does not look to cool nationwide for some time, recruiters say.

Re: Big data salaries
Sure, some companies will try to lowball on market averages -- but good luck trying in this hot category.
