Course Detail

Why Data Science?
Data science is an interdisciplinary field that strives to extract knowledge or insights from data in various forms, either structured or unstructured. Data science employs techniques and theories drawn from many fields within the broad areas of mathematics, statistics, operations research, information science, and computer science.
As demand for data scientist skills remains strong, hiring for these positions poses a challenge. With this ongoing talent shortage, individuals and organizations must consider training resources with data science skills as well as keeping their data scientists' skills up to date with a fast changing industry.

Program Objective
The objective of this programme is to introduce participants to the different tools and techniques used for handling, managing, analyzing and interpreting data. The program will be hands-on with introduction to software such as Tableau, SPSS, R, @Risk, Arena, Oracle SQL, Hadoop, etc. The programme is suited for working professionals who would like to have a hands-on feel on working with data and making sense of it.
As part of the programme, participants will be required to form small teams and undertake organization-based specialized or comprehensive projects of their choice, in the areas of marketing, finance and operations, to be guided by IIMC faculty. These projects will have to be submitted and presented during a 4-day IIMC Campus module towards the end of the programme. Successful completion of the program will enable the participants to acquire a strong foundation for applying advanced quantitative and statistical tools to make most effective decisions driven by sound data analysis.
