48 Hours | 8 Weekends |3 Hours Instruction/day

Program designed to empower you with the right data science concepts and skills to be an effective business analytics professional

Program Overview

The future of decision making will greatly rely on data, and no industry will remain untouched by this development. Data, however, has its own set of issues and challenges; for the data available to be meaningful and concise, one needs to organize it efficiently.

In the program, you will learn the nuances of data collection, data presentation, and model building using real-life datasets. You will learn how to build supervised and unsupervised machine learning models, you will be introduced to algorithms to solve classification and segmentation problems. We will also introduce you to R platform, and different algorithms which can be used in the model building activity.

At the end of the program you will develop a clear understanding of the need for business analytics and will be able to apply it to solve some interesting problems cutting across various business domains.
