Shiv Nadar University, Delhi-NCR, has joined hands with Jigsaw Academy, India’s top ranked institute for Analytics and Data Science training, to offer a holistic Data Science & Analytics for Business (DSAB) program for students and young professionals to upskill themselves in preparation for a data-driven world that is increasingly becoming digital. DSAB is a comprehensive, eight month, ~200 hours certificate program delivered online in collaboration with Jigsaw Academy, which helps learners to get an immersive, hands-on training on the most relevant analytics tools that businesses around the world are using to solve complex problems.

Owing to the ever-increasing focus on data, gaining new insights and understanding the changing consumer mindsets have become points of paramount significance, and are factors driving the digital transformation of businesses across industries. Over the past few years, demand for skilled professionals in this domain has seen exponential growth.

Dr. Bibek Banerjee, Dean of School of Management & Entrepreneurship, and Director of Strategic Initiatives at Shiv Nadar University, Delhi-NCR, said, “Data is the asset that most 21st century businesses are leveraging to generate intelligence that is powering humans to collaborate with smart machines and create value that is redefining the boundaries of development. The Data Science & Analytics for Business program is designed to equip students with the cutting-edge skills required to create the ‘data-driven intelligence’ that guides such value-creating decisions in organizations.”

DSAB’s comprehensive case study-based approach to real-life business scenarios with practice on rich business datasets will allow learners to build a strong foundation in both, technical and business aspects of data science and analytics.

While talking about this collaborative initiative, CEO & Co-founder of Jigsaw Academy, Gaurav Vohra, said, “Analytics industry experts and hiring managers are very clear about what ‘kind’ of analytics or Big Data and Machine Learning professionals they want to hire. The Data Science & Analytics for Business program’s content caters to the unique requirements of job roles and profiles, creating analytics specialists, not generalists.”

Jigsaw Academy (a UNext company, backed by Manipal Group) is adept in emerging technologies and domains like Data Science, Business Analytics, Product Management, People Analytics, Digital HR, and Cloud Computing and offers upskilling opportunities through comprehensive industry-relevant curricula and unique hands-on experience to fresh graduates and professionals alike through capstone projects.

Shiv Nadar University is a multidisciplinary, research-focused University, and is India’s youngest-recognised ‘Institution of Eminence’, as recognised by the Government of India.
