With this year’s ranking on the full-time post-graduate data science programmes, we have ranked the courses based on several parameters such as pedagogy, faculty profile and credentials, faculty to student ratio, gender diversity, graduation outcome, ROI, student review, among others. This year’s ranking takes into consideration several sub-parameters under each category to provide a holistic view of ranking outcomes. 

The ranking is a result of extensive research, and internal discussions that followed after the inputs from participating institutes were collated. We reached out to several institutes offering PG courses in data science to nominate their Analytics / Data Science programmes and furnish information about them. The information received was then thoroughly studied, and follow-ups were made on any missing data and to validate any ambiguous information. Finally, the survey is processed to curate the detailed rank list. 

You can find the detailed methodology followed for this ranking here.
