Today, Shiv Nadar University, a multidisciplinary and research-based university, launched a new online program in Data Sciences and Analytics for Business (DSAB). The 14-week program will start from the 3rd week of July. For this, the university has collaborated with Jigsaw Academy, a data science institute that offers analytics courses, to deliver a few lessons.
Also recognised as an institution of eminence (IoE) by the Government of India, the university is well poised to offer the course and help learners advance their career. Aspirants who are enrolled in any undergraduate degree program, along with mathematics in their high school are eligible to enrol for the program. However, aspirants will have a personal interview as a final round of selection.

On completion of this course, learners would be well versed in various machine learning and deep learning techniques, along with basics such as statistics, probability, SQL, Python, and more. In addition, there will be a capstone project that will allow students to get practical experience while working with real-world data.
“The demand for skilled data science talent across sectors is rapidly growing. However, not enough well-trained and skilled professionals are entering the industry every year to help bridge this excess-demand. Post-COVID, the digital economy is expected to grow, and with that, the demand for analysts will also see increasing trends. The Data Sciences and Analytics for Business program resonates with Shiv Nadar University’s mission of developing and educating the path-shapers of tomorrow with relevant industry-ready skills. This program is specifically designed to drive specific learning outcomes that give our students a clear edge as they drive ahead to the future,” said Dr Bibek Banerjee, Senior Dean and University Head of Strategic Initiatives, and the Director of School of Management and Entrepreneurship at Shiv Nadar University.
