The capstone project was one of the most memorable parts of the process – Sherin Shoby, PGP DSBA

Shoby comes with a master’s degree in commerce and over seven years of experience in the service industry. After taking a break to raise her child, her journey in Data Science started in 2015 when she enrolled for a Post Graduate Diploma in Applied Statistics through IGNOU and started taking up small freelancing projects. During this time, she was on the lookout for full-time programs where she could meet like-minded people, have interactions and increase her network. So, she took up the Post Graduate Program in Data Science and Business Analytics in 2020 at Great Learning.

She adds, “The journey so far has been nothing less than overwhelming and rewarding. I have nothing but gratitude for all the changes I experienced in life. I’ve met amazing people who have become very good friends, teachers who have been excellent guides, and to date, I do not hesitate to call and get my doubts and queries cleared because that is the level of comfort I have had.”

The industry-based curriculum broadened the spectrum of new job opportunities – Goushika Madhmitha, PGP DSBA

 Madhmitha completed her bachelor’s degree in B.Tech-EEE and, as a fresher, joined an IT firm. She was interested in the DBMS process in software development and started to work on projects using ETL applications over seven years across a few organisations. 

 She was fortunate enough to have a solid support system that helped her juggle and concentrate on work, the PGP-DSBA course from Great Learning, and my family at the same time.

She adds, “I started using ML applications at my workplace, and this triggered my interest in Data Science. I also started looking for more course content on Data Science. However, lack of exposure and understanding of the field was one of the obstacles, as not many women are working in the data science field.”

“It is a learning process, and one should be very agile in understanding the requirements of Data Science from various industries, as the application is endless. However, concentrating more on understanding the basics helps crack and identify problem statements from any dataset. I was at a point where I felt stagnant in my position and was looking to upskill myself without having to quit my current job, and that’s when I started researching about Great learning,” she said.

She also stated that Great Learning professors and materials provided for the program assisted greatly with the curriculum. The students also managed to adjust their pace of understanding, despite the pandemic. She learnt under the guidance of amazing faculty; specifically, Prof. Gurumoorthy, who patiently clarified, cleared and revised basic concepts every time the class started advanced topics. The students also learnt from motivating faculty like Prof. Ragavshyam Ramamurthy and Prof. Deepesh Singh, who shared their industry experience while explaining concepts.
