As analytics as a discipline becomes more entrenched across domains, especially in India’s financial services sector, organisations and high-growth startups are going on a hiring spree. However, the market continues to be employer-driven and finding the right talent is a growing challenge for organisations and startups.

Our recent study found out that there has been an overall growth in the number of jobs in analytics and data science ecosystem with India contributing to 6% of open job openings worldwide. The total number of analytics and data science job positions available are 97,000. Out of these, 97% job openings in India are on a full-time basis while 3% are part-time or contractual.

On the skill side, as more companies bolster their analytics capabilities, they are aggressively hiring professionals with sound technical knowledge. A key takeaway is that the analytics and data science talent supply will not be able to keep pace with job growth.

Here’s how you can apply to the course.
