Truth be told, there is no best way for all. Everyone has different plans for themselves and there is no training that can work for all.

A Master’s degree or a diploma in analytics consists of a comprehensive course offering in depth knowledge of basic and applied statistics along with specific tools. These courses cover a large are and resultantly take a lot of time; if you can afford it then it is worth because alongside the inclusive coverage of the topic the degree or the diploma will also add substantial significance to your resume.

The instructors in these facilities are in action in the industry which definitely adds an edge.
These courses are highly suggestible for working analytics professionals who wish to learn new skills and new tools. The basic courses can help non-analytics professionals to get started as well.
Online courses offered by coursera, Udemy etc. can also be useful but the scope of this way is kind of limited because it is hard to get in touch with the real industry and know how it works through this. This can be recommended if you are just looking to get an idea and do not want to spend much.
