    Hi,

    I am a CA, currently working in the IT industry in a strategy team. I want to take up this course but have got a few doubts:
    1. How is this exactly beneficial to me being a CA?
    2. And which would be the best institute in Pune to take up this course?

    • Firehorse

      CA’s are a misguided lot. They moved to SAP, Information Security, Financial Research when their core strenght is accountng, audit & taxaton. They should stick to that. Heavy maths & statistics is involved here.

  • Ashutosh

    Hi,
    I’ve some doubts/questions related to this PGPBA program as below:

    – Programe Director Prof Bappadita Mukhopadyay name is not listed in faculty directory of institute Great Lake. ‘http://www.greatlakes.edu.in/faculty-research/faculty-directory’
    Please clarify my questions, Thank you.

  • RS

    There seems is a new institute by the name of ISI, in kolkata ( also seem to have a branch in Delhi ) they seem to be recognized at fairly reputed in the field of analytical research…..just checked it on the web….any one with any info

    • Analytics

      I can’t stop laughing on this comment. ISI is one of the oldest institute in India founded on 1931. This is the best institute to study Statistics and ISI entrance test is supposed to be world’s toughest test as it selects only 25-230 students out of 2 lacs students sitting for entrance exam…

  • Nishtha

    Hi..I hail from Delhi with an experience of 3+ years in IT industry as a Business Analayst(pseudo profile). Please suggest me a good analytics(Business Analysis, Business Intelligence) course to pursue in Delhi NCR only..Thanks

  • Manish Vivek

    Great Lakes Institute of Mangement,Gurgaon has introduced a new specialization for its flagship PGPM (1 year full time program) in Business Analytics, in addition to the already offered specializations in Marketing, Finance and IT/Operations.

  • Ankita

    Is 3 months course of business analytics from IIM ranchi worth while

    • hari

      I have the same question.. Anyone who knows something about it here?

  • Pankaj Singh

    You have not mentioned about PRAXIS BUSINESS SCHOOL, Kolkata which offers a full time one year Post Graduate Program in Business Analytics (PGPBA) .The knowledge partners are india’s largest private bank ICICI Bank & world’s largest professinal services provider and largest of “Big Four” PwC (PricewaterhouseCoopers) .

    Its is the best course in India at this point of time. There are many reasons for that. First of all the study of Business Analytics is so wide and large that it cannot be covered in just 6 months or 3 months of part time study. It covers Advanced Statistics, Machine Learning, Data Mining, Data Visualization,etc. Apart from this one needs to learn tools like SAS or R. Also one needs to have domain knowledge of fields like Finance, Retail, Telecom, etc. All this is being covered in one course by Praxis Analytics Course.

    All this can’t be done in just 3 months or 6 months part time study. Only this course from PRAXIS http://praxis.ac.in/programs/business-analytics/ offers all in one package. It is being taught by eminent faculties fron IIT Kharagpur, IIT Kanpur, IIM Calcutta, etc. The course content is very rich in terms of Technical, Business & Analytical learning.
    Last but not the least , placements are just excellent after completing the course. They have tie-ups with many niche companies like PwC,ICICI,Fidelity, Bridgei2i, etc. All the students have been placed so far by them.
    I don’t know why its not covered here in this website. Its the only school in India which offers a full time course. Just visit http://praxis.ac.in/programs/business-analytics/

    • Rahul

    • Vimal Prakash

      Hello Pankaj,

      I read somewhere that most of the work in Analytics industry (70%) is being outsourced to India. But it is surprising to know that there is hardly any college in India offering full time courses. While other countries have already started offering M.S degrees in Analytics.

      Could you please give some more information about the course Syllabus & placement at this college?

  • Mathew

    I have 3 years of experience in Business Analytics and holds a engineering degree from a top college.
    Questions
    1) How much value addition will this course make in my current analytics job? Will it help me get faster promotions and growth? Is this certificate valued in the industry?

    2) I am looking for a course which provides give an opportunity to develop my statistical as well as management skills. Based on the course content description I suspect more emphasis is given on statistics and tool than developing management skill. Is that correct? Which B school program strikes the balance between these two?

    3) Many IIMs conduct this course, which one is the best? Since I am in Bangalore should I just apply to IIM Bangalore?

    4) Many US B School provide this course as regular MBA course (I dont have plans to do this). Compared to them where does the courses provided by IIMs stand?

    Puys who have done these courses and have knowledge about this , please throw some light on my questions.

  • Prashanth

    This program is also worth considering for people interested in getting into analytics. International School of Engineering(INSOFE) from Hyderabad offers certification programs in Big Data Analytics for fresh graduates as well as working professionals. The program is certified by the LTI of Carnegie Mellon University (USA) for its quality, content and pedagogy. They offer a 4 month training program post which students also work on a real time project in analytics for another 2 months. INSOFE has so far trained many engineers from various companies like Wipro, TCS, Defence Electronics Research Labs, United Health Group, Progress Software, Novartis, Wells Fargo, to name a few.
    I would be willing to help anyone out with regards to various programs and training in the area of analytics and data sciences.

      I am in search of a good course in analytics. Plz help!

  • Pingback: Infographics – Top 6 Analytics Courses in India - Analytics India Magazine

  • http://www.knowledgefoundry.net Raj

    Interesting list. About time that we have some serious academic focus on analytics.

    It would be nice if you could add the start dates and the cost of these programs. From an industry perspective, do these programs include live projects. Also, the professor line-up would be interesting to understand.

    • http://www.insofe.edu.in Sridhar Pappu

      Bhasker, very pertinent article.

      We at International School of Engineering (INSOFE), Hyderabad started our journey last year with a focus on Analytics seeing the need for such programs and absolute dearth of the same. We started Certificate programs in Engineering Excellence and Accelerated Engineering in Business Analytics and Optimization and Big Data Analytics and Optimization, which are certified by the Language Technologies Institute (LTI) of Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) for the quality of content, pedagogy and assessment.

      The curriculum was designed in consultations with Dr. Jaime Carbonell, University Professor, CMU, Director, LTI and Allen Newell Professor of Computer Science at CMU, and industry experts. The courses are taught by people who have earned their PhDs from Stanford, Johns Hopkins and Carnegie Mellon Universities and have nearly 2 decades of experience in Industry and Academia. There is also a project component to our program.

      Bhasker, I would appreciate if you could visit our site and review our program as well, because we have received feedback even from people involved with CMU and Harvard that we have one of the best programs globally in Analytics. My desire is not to advertise our programs here, but given the dearth of such programs and the fast growing need for people with Analytic skills, I feel the forum such as yours will help people know more about such programs.

      Regards,
