Analytics India Magazine’s data science education rankings on part-time PG programmes aims to rank the best courses offered across India on data science and analytics. For the part-time programmes, which are usually offered in association with colleges and universities, scoring has been done across six parameters — faculty profile and credentials, faculty to student ratio, ROI and brand value, gender diversity, graduation outcome and student reviews. 

The ranking has been derived after following an extensive methodology to judge the parameters mentioned above. The responses from the institutions were collated by circulating a survey form. This information was extensively studied to make sure that every data point was submitted to arrive at the ranking. Necessary follow-ups were made to furnish any missing data. The ranking list was then curated based on these parameters.
