Shruti BhatRisk Analyst, Irage Broking Services LLP
This program is well-structured and planned. Coursework is exhaustive and has covered all major topics such as Python, R, SQL, Machine Learning and Tableau-which are the current industry favorites. The flow of the program is such that even a novice in the field of analytics or programming will pick up in a couple of weeks. They start with statistics and go on to programming languages like python and then complex topics like machine learning.
Dhiral BhargavaDirector, Vikramaditya Engineering and Construction
The program’s curriculum is excellent and the course is very structured. They care for the participants and try their level best to help students learn. The best part of UNext Jigsaw, I feel, is that they always have a listening ear. Every issue will be considered and will be resolved.
Anuj VermaVirtual Intern - Data Analyst Consulting, KPMG, Australia
The online live classes with expert faculty from IIM Indore were seamless. I’d rate it a 10/10! Everything was taught in an outstanding manner with professional conduct. Classes, projects & assignments were properly scheduled. All the assignments were well-balanced & the Capstone Project helped me immensely in exponentially boosting my learning curve. The faculty is wonderful, knowledgeable and is very well able to communicate their teaching. The back-end support from UNext Jigsaw is great.

Any clarification about the course content and placements, feel free to reach out to me over LinkedIn. - Saraj (IPBA9, IIM Indore)
Harshal SanghaviSenior Product Manager
As a Product Manager, my job entails frequent association with Analysts who speak only in numbers. It can be about the profit, loss or progress of the product, everything is showcased in terms of numbers. Wanting to understand their language and speak their lingo more knowledgeably, I decided to acquire the necessary data skills and enrolled in IIM Indore’s Integrated Program in Business Analytics.
Brajesh Kumar VermaSenior Manager – BIU
"I took up this program as I was looking for skill upgradation to perform better in my current job. And the course curriculum is just what I wanted. It was precise and understandable. It was designed so well that it helped us be in flow, without losing interest at any point of time. The faculty ensures that even a person with no technical background can understand everything without any problem.”
Praveen L UppundaAnalyst
“The Integrated Program in Business Analytics’ entire learning process is designed to be super interactive and engaging, and learners never feel much difference between an online or offline course. The program's batch is filled with people who have just started their career to those with decades of experience, making the learning journey more diverse and enjoyable.”
Saibal GhoshSr Data & Business Analyst
“I enrolled for the IPBA course from UNext, and IIM Indore and the program was very well structured - got to learn analytics right from the basics to the advanced level. I am almost in the last leg of the course. The videos and the study materials and the training provided were good and explained in a simple way yet very informative. All the faculty who taught us were good. It is really a good course for anyone who wants to start their analytics career.”
Dani Alex PSolutions Consultant
“I'm a Mechanical Engineer who joined IIM Indore's Integrated Program in Business Analytics. I wanted to pursue this course to bridge the gap between my ‘non-CS’ degree in Data Science and its software tools. The course provides excellent content and references with active classes. The content in the LMS gives an overview, Live classes give you some practical applications and the underlying math behind the overview of the portion, while the assignments allow students to dive a little deeper to apply what they have learned. The faculties for this program are truly exceptional, in terms of expertise and concept delivery. The concepts that a person would grasp from these classes are one of a kind, coming from a lot of experience, hence worth more than online resources. ‘Live class's’ quizzes, theoretical MCQ tests, Kaggle assignments and a capstone project measures the grading criteria for the successful completion of this course.”
Shreyasi MahurkarApplication Development Team Lead
“The Integrated Program in Business Analytics from IIM Indore is very well structured, and I got to learn analytics right from the basics to the advanced level. The introduction of Kaggle competitions helped me apply all the theoretical and practical knowledge which I have gained via case studies to actual real world problem statements. The videos and the study material provided explain everything in a simple yet exciting way which helped with easy understanding of concepts. All the faculty who taught us were brilliant and had extensive domain experience. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to start his analytics career afresh"
“The Integrated Program in Business Analytics (IPBA) course offered in partnership with IIM Indore turned out to be a great learning experience. What I loved the best about class lectures is that, even though there were students from various backgrounds (some with good hands-on technical knowledge, some with no technical background, some with great experience, and some with none, etc.), the lecturers patiently addressed the doubts, and almost brought us all on the same level. Will gladly recommend this program to those who are looking to bring themselves up to speed with the skills required in the Data Science and Analytics domain.”
“I must say choosing to do this program was one of the wisest decisions I have taken in a while. Not only was the course extremely holistic in nature but it was rigorous, very well explained, thoughtfully structured and extremely comprehensive. It took into consideration all the possible aspects of the field of data science and introduced us to the aspects that were quite unknown to the participants who didn't belong to this field. Classes every weekend became a ritual and an integral part of my schedule over the last 10 months where we got a chance to interact with the professionals and experts from various domains who were not only our teachers but our guides and mentors along the way making things easy, understandable and their guidance was like a light in our path to learning milestones.”
Parish PatniHead - UK and Ireland Engineering Operations & Analytics
“To all the learners out there, let me start by saying that I am glad that I went for the IPBA course which is a well-designed program in collaboration with IIM Indore. Before enrolling, I had seen the contents and at that time itself I had decided that it would be fun learning and I was not wrong. The contents provided are great and most importantly the course structure will challenge you to learn and progress continuously. Faculties have done a great job throughout, and I found them to be extremely cooperative. If you are looking forward to enhancing your skills in the business analytics domain, I recommend everyone to start this course! Enjoy learning and take care!”

Business Analytics is the technique of deriving trends and patterns by utilizing data to drive profits and derive solutions to potential problems. Being one of the most sought-after emerging technologies, Business Analytics finds applications across industries. Due to a severe lack of traditional education courses, pursuing a certification course in Business Analytics is important and necessary to receive the right opportunities. The Business Analytics certification course, like the Integrated Program in Business Analytics by IIM Indore and UNext Jigsaw, is designed to get learners acquainted and master the necessary skills and relevant technologies to be successful Business Analysts. Unlike other online courses on Business Analytics, this 10-month online course ensures you transform into a job-ready professional after completing the program.
With businesses becoming highly data-driven, the demand for high-impact Business Analysts has never been higher. The most significant advantage of kickstarting a career in Business Analytics is the handsome remuneration offered by the domain and the multi-industry opportunities that come with it. However, there are not many certifications in Business Analytics courses available. This has inadvertently led to an acute increase in the number of Business Analytics courses in India. The Integrated Program in Business Analytics in collaboration with IIM Indore, is among the top online courses on Business Analytics designed to help learners master both the techniques of Business Analytics and Management skills.
A Business Analytics certificate indicates one’s passion and commitment towards the domain and the relevant competencies mastered. It is the best indication to the hiring manager or an organization of all the latest skills and techniques mastered by you to become an excellent project-ready Business Analyst. The best Business Analytics certification program one can pursue is the Integrated Program in Business Analytics by UNext Jigsaw in collaboration with IIM Indore.
The quality of a course can only be measured by the skillset and exposure it offers to its learners. Although there is a huge demand for skilled professionals in the domain of Business Analytics, the main concern is the pressing skill gap. The most effective way to overcome the hurdle and reap the maximum benefits of the opportunities available in the domain is to pursue a competent Business Analytics course like the Integrated Program in Business Analytics (IPBA), by IIM Indore in collaboration with UNext Jigsaw, for maximum industry exposure and excellent career opportunities. Designed and delivered by the best minds in the industry, this program has a robust curriculum focused on hands-on learning enabling its learners to become the business leaders of tomorrow.
Apart from a bachelor’s degree, there is no specific knowledge required for taking this Business Analytics course. However, this 10-month Business Analytics certification program is most effective for people with strong analytical and numerical skills. Aspiring Business Analytics professionals must also possess good interpretive and problem-solving skills to derive information from raw data and explain the analysis process and its outcome. Having some basic knowledge of computer software(s) like Querying Language (SQL, Hive, Pig), scripting Language (Python, Matlab), Statistical Language (R, SAS, SPSS), and Excel can make the learning process of any Business Analyst course easier.
Every Business Analytics course has a stipulated time during which the complete course outline is taught to the learners. For instance, the Integrated Program in Business Analytics (IPBA), by UNext Jigsaw in collaboration with IIM Indore is spread over 10.5 Months with 150+ Hours divided across 12 Modules. It outlines the basics as well as the most sought-after technologies. However, only pursuing a Business Analyst course would not be sufficient to excel, it takes an ample amount of time and effort to master the required skill set.
The Integrated Program in Business Analytics(IPBA), by UNext Jigsaw in collaboration with IIM Indore, is a 100% online course for Business Analysts. There is no need to attend any in-person classes.
Most Business Analytics courses in India do not need you to have any prior knowledge of programming or any other software-relevant tools. This is primarily because the curriculum is structured so as to aid even a novice to master the skills of data analysis. However, some basic knowledge of computer software(s) like Querying Language (SQL, Hive, Pig), Scripting Language (Python, Matlab), Statistical Language (R, SAS, SPSS), and Excel can make the learning process easier if you plan to enroll in any of the Business Analytics courses in India.
The majority of Business Analytics courses in India, focus more on skills development rather than just knowledge accumulation. But, IIM Indore’s Business Analytics certification program is different. In this 10-month online course, hands-on skill development is achieved through capstone projects and case studies, giving the learners a first-hand experience of the industry requirement. Learners will get to work in groups, identify, shortlist, and finalize a project idea that they’ll work on. They will be mentored throughout the various stages by an industry SME. This ensures that participants get to apply the Analytics and Big Data techniques in their projects, including Machine Learning and Predictive Analytics so that they can easily tackle real-life business problems and provide effective solutions in their professional careers.
The Business Analytics courses in India are designed to ensure the learners have the necessary knowledge to explore a wide range of career opportunities. The tools and technologies taught in the Business Analytics certification course by IIM Indore are broad and domain-specific to ensure maximum application. After completing this Business Analytics certification, a learner will be able to become a Machine Learning Engineer, Data Architect, Statistician, Data Analyst, Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Chief Data Officer, Application Architect, Project Manager, Business/Analytics Translator, etc., based on their preference.
