After spending a decade in the HR field, Neelam wanted to try her hand at something fresh and distinct from her current domain of expertise. To convert her thoughts into action, Neelam started to look for interesting career options. After a few discussions with her friends and some internet surfing, the term ‘Data Science’ caught her interest. But, Neelam was worried since she thought she did not possess the required certifications and skill set to get into this trendy domain.

Trying to play it safe, she wanted to figure out a path that could let her experiment, while continuing her job until she can make a definitive decision.

Soon after, Neelam found herself a beacon of hope in the form of India’s #1 Part-time PG course – The Integrated Program in Business Analytics by the prestigious Indian Institute of Management, Indore & the renowned Emerging Technologies training provider, Jigsaw Academy. Confident that this was the perfect opportunity for herself, Neelam decided to take her first step towards a brand new professional journey.

“After enrolling in the program, I was excited to witness a diverse batch consisting of varying ages and professional backgrounds. It gave me confidence and offered me a sense of belongingness,” says Neelam. “I found the Statistics classes to be quite energetic and informative. It was all going well until Python Introductory classes came into the picture and turned my world upside down. It was immensely confusing at first. But professor Sarita and professor Neha explained the commands and concepts so well that I gradually started to understand Python.”

Neelam had her fair share of difficult phases and she even considered giving up her new-found passion a couple of times during her journey. But because of her unwavering commitment and hard work, backed by constant mentorship from experts, she kept moving forward. After around three months, Neelam was confident that she could successfully complete this Future Leaders Program.

“I’d like to thank the faculty for their professional guidance. Not to forget the commendable service by the support team; all our technical issues were heard and resolved as quickly as possible.”

Neelam came a long way, from being intrigued by the term ‘Data Science’ to becoming a part of the domain, from having no prior technical background to understanding core Business Analytics concepts, thus proving that anything is achievable if we put our minds to it.
