One of the ways that students fund their Master of Information and Data Science degree program is through employer sponsorship. While your company may not advertise that this funding is available, they may have funds available to you if you put in a request.
Beyond funding, employers can also support your degree progress through adding flexibility to your schedule and providing new challenges and opportunities to take advantage of your growing skill set. Having a scheduled conversation to discuss your professional development goals is a great idea to help foster support, in whatever form it may take.
