Piyush SharmaConsultant, Equifax
I recently finished this Data Science program from UNext and got placed in one of my dream companies, Equifax!
Suraj ThallapalliData Engineer, Publicis Sapient
The placement process started in the second term of the program & many Data Science-based companies like Equifax, dhiOmics & Fractal Analytics came to hire learners across several roles like Data Science Consultants, Data Analysts, Machine Learning Scientist, etc. I’m happy I got placed in Equifax & am thrilled to start my Data Science journey.
Soubhagya Ranjan BalNetwork Engineer
Even during the pandemic, the placement team worked really hard to bring companies in. It was a big transition for me from the networking domain to this Data Science world but I finally got selected as a Business Consultant Intern at Eversana.
This course is the best option for someone who wants to pursue a career in Data Analytics. It's a good course with a highly experienced teaching faculty.
As a JS developer I was making a modest salary in a stagnant role and I wasn't excited about my prospects. With this course, I got a 86% hike.
This program is amazing for those candidates who want a career transition or who are looking to start their career in the field of analytics. It's best to focus on the curriculum they made, and if you follow it strictly you will definitely have a good job just the way I did.

As per UNext’s placement guarantee* feature, every learner who has successfully completed and fulfilled the academic requirements of the Post Graduate Certificate Program in Data Science & Machine Learning from Manipal Institute of Technology (MIT) and strictly adhered to the program’s disciplinary norms will be provided with at least 3 job opportunities. By the end of the program, there would be an additional 3 months within which the job opportunities shall be provided to all the eligible learners.
Placement Duration is typically the 3-month duration after completion of the program in which Placement Cell brings in opportunities for the candidates who are eligible and would like to avail UNext’s placement guarantee* feature.

The Placement Cell brings in opportunities for learners even during the Placement Assistance Duration. However, those covered under the UNext Placement Guarantee* feature will get an additional stipend for these 3 months or until the receipt of an offer, whichever is earlier.
For example: If the 9-month course begins in March 2023 and gets over in the month of December 2023, then January 2024 to March 2024 will be considered as the “Placement Duration” and April 2024 to June 2024 will be the “Placement Assistance Duration”.

If the learner does not get the minimum assured number of job interview opportunities during the Placement Duration, the learner will automatically enter the Placement Assistance Duration. During this time, the learner will continue to avail the placement opportunities from UNext and a payment of INR 20,000 per month for the subsequent 3 months (“Placement Assistance Duration”), or until the receipt of the Offer Letter during the Placement Assistance Duration, whichever is earlier.
The Placement Assistance offered shall not be construed to be a promise of placement.
Also, every learner pursuing the program, irrespective of whether they are eligible for UNext’s placement guarantee* feature or not shall continue to receive placement opportunities, unless the participant gets at least one job offer. Stating that, placement opportunities shall continue even after the Placement Assistance Duration is over.
A learner is eligible for the Placement Guarantee* only if they fulfill the following prerequisites:
1. The learner agrees to adhere to the code of conduct (wherever applicable) and the other terms & conditions, including the student handbook set by UNext.
2. To be eligible for the UNext Placement Guarantee*, learners must meet the minimum academic requirements in each course in each term with respect to:
3. Secure the following Placement Eligibility Score:
4. Participate in all preparatory placement sessions organized by UNext placement cell
5. Fees payment: To be eligible for the UNext Placement Guarantee*, the learner must ensure all fees for the program are paid on time as outlined in the fee structure and payment schedule shared at the time of admission. Any delays in payment of the Program fees will invalidate learner’s entitlement to the UNext Placement Guarantee*
6. In addition to the eligibility criteria defined by UNext, learners must meet the requirements/ eligibility criteria for placement set by each partner organization (age/education/any employment condition). The learner agrees to produce the proof of eligibility (marks/age/etc.) at any point in time
7. Please note that the following learners will only be eligible for Placement Assistance and not for UNext Placement Guarantee*. They will not be eligible for the pay-out as well.
While UNext provides Placement Guarantee* to all the eligible learners of the PG Certificate Program in Data Science & Machine Learning, the selection of a learner and final recruitment decision will be made by the partner organization and will be their sole discretion. It will be binding between the learner and the partner organization. Additionally, the designation, compensation, role, place of work, terms & conditions of the placement letter, or employment letter are the prerogative of the placement partner, and UNext is not responsible for the same.
A “Placement Opportunity” is defined as a job posting on the LMS (Learning Management System) which the placement team provides after receiving relevant job requirements from a company.
A “Job Interview Opportunity” is defined as that opportunity in which the candidate is shortlisted by a placement partner for the selection process, which may include but is not limited to interviews, coding assessment, or other written and verbal assessments. A learner shall be considered to have been provided a “Job Interview Opportunity” if they are shortlisted for an interview, even though the student fails to appear for the interview or does not submit any other assessment required as part of the Placement Opportunity.
Any learner who applies and gets shortlisted for a Job Interview Opportunity must go through the entire selection process unless rejected midway by the partner organization. Any deviation from this will result in the candidate being ineligible for the UNext’s Placement Guarantee*. However, suppose they face an unavoidable situation amid the hiring process, because of which the learner cannot proceed further with the hiring process, then the student must inform the same by sending an email communication to the Program Coordinator, explicitly mentioning the reason for skipping the opportunity. If the participant fails to do so, it will result in them being ineligible for the UNext Placement Guarantee*.
A learner is considered placed when the placement cell receives an email communication from the hiring company notifying them about the learner’s job selection with no further round/s of interview.
A learner is still considered as placed and not eligible for any further placement opportunity:
No. The learner has the choice to skip a maximum of two placement opportunities during the Placement Duration/ Placement Assistance Duration by sending an email communication, well in advance, to the Placement Coordinator, explicitly mentioning the reason for skipping the opportunity. The learner must attend to each opportunity extended to them in good faith. If they are found skipping more than 2 opportunities without any valid reasons, the learner will not be eligible for UNext’s Placement Guarantee* and will not be considered for any further placement opportunities.
