Programme Overview

In today’s dynamic business landscape, the ability to drive corporate strategy and business decisions through data-driven insights leads to market leadership and gives organisations a competitive edge. Increasingly, the integration of data science and analytics is proving to be a game-changer for businesses across industries. Organisations are seeking to gain revenue-generating insights from data and build future strategies for business growth.

Along with a strategic and managerial understanding, the programme will help professionals enhance their proficiency in data science and gain in-depth skills and robust knowledge of machine learning algorithms and techniques supported by R and Python.
