The field of Business Analytics has assumed universal importance in the recent years, owing to the adoption of digital transformation strategy and what is termed as Industry 4.0 strategy. This has created a growing demand for managers with requisite business analytics skills to process large amount of data being collected and take effective business decisions based on it. The short-term courses offered in business analytics by many institutions are proving inadequate to meet the skills that are in demand. Hence it is the right time to launch a full term program to prepare and train the next generation managers for business and industry needs in respect of Business Analytics.
The analytics industry is also booming because of the large penetration of technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Sciences, Cloud Computing, internet of things, Blockchain etc., This has led to quantum jump in demand for Business Analytics professionals to solve complex business problem and make effective decision using various data analytics tools like Python, R, Tableau, SQL, Power BI, SPSS, Hadoop, and MapReduce.
By keeping with these industry requirements in perspective, XIME-Bangalore has designed the Post Graduate Diploma Programme in Management – Business Analytics (PGDM-BA).
