Top Under-graduate Data Science Programmes In India – AIM Ranking 2021

As Data Science becomes more integral across organisations, a career in the field has become streamlined. Students across India are looking to make a career in the field right after schooling. This has resulted in many institutes introducing undergraduate and graduate programmes in data science.  Analytics India Magazine surveyed institutes across India to rank the Undergraduate Programmes in Data Science or Analytics. AIM has been coming out with academic rankings for the last eight years and introduced the UG ranking last year. The ranking outcomes will result from this survey and extensive secondary research. This report enlists the top Under-graduate Programmes for Data Sciences in India for 2021. More than 20 programs participated in the ranking, out of which 15 made it through. For last year’s UG rankings, visit here. Analytics India Magazine considered five different parameters for computing the ranking of Analytics or Data Science Programs — Certification Value, Return on Investment, Program Success, Teaching & Curriculum, and Student Engagement. We derived an overall index to determine this year’s Academic Rankings for UG Programmers in India. This index was calculated using the average score of five sub-indices (based on the aforementioned parameters). The sub-indices themselves were calculated based on the scores given to the answers (of the survey questions) asked by AIM using uniform evaluation criteria. These scores were normalised on a scale from 0 to 1 before the average for the sub-indices was taken. Outliers were capped. The hierarchy to calculate the overall index can be seen in the chart below. Below we discuss the analysis results and present the top-ranking UG programmes across the different sub-indices and the overall index.  1 | Bachelor Of Data Science By SP Jain School of Global Management Duration of programme (in months): 36Total no. of learning sessions (in hours): 2700Course fees: ₹  21,90,000 According to our analysis, the Bachelor in Data Science offered by SP Jain School of Global Management tops the undergraduate programme list with a score of 0.76.
