Do I need higher education to get a job in data science or self-sufficient with the help of online courses and books?

Heard that programming the is not a mandatory factor when hiring. Interested in Data science?

Do - optional, but without the knowledge that you give to Universities, will be difficult. The same higher mathematics and probability theory, for example

In datasets, as far as I can see, each of the second degree. Without deep knowledge of mathematics there is nothing to do.
Even Junior candidates of Sciences? - rene.Kiehn commented on April 3rd 20 at 17:54
@rene.Kiehn, Sometimes Yes, sometimes no. What difference does it make? - dalton commented on April 3rd 20 at 17:57

It all depends on what you use. If there is a good (not average, but it was good and grubka) training on good rig at a technical University, preferably in the it profession, then start mastering DS you can own. Question - will suffice-if you have time and diligence. Because unlike learning the same programming languages here for a couple of months - definitely not managed.
And if not technical? - rene.Kiehn commented on April 3rd 20 at 17:56
Strange question. Put yourself in the place of the employer and answer the question - why is it taking candidate without basic mathematical training if on the market there are specialists that. What is your competitive advantage? - dalton commented on April 3rd 20 at 17:59
