Post-Graduate Diploma in Data Science

Fin Tech Overview
Program Overview

It is evident that Data Science is an upcoming domain which has been recognized as an important and obligatory practice to be adopted by almost all business organizations irrespective of their size and line of activities. A significant capability enhancement has taken place, particularly in the last decade regarding data or information acquisition. This has led to the need of analyzing the same and for taking out meaningful insights, then plugging those with decision-making and updating policies for better organizational functions.

Post-Graduate Diploma in Data Science will help professionals to succeed in any industry and teach them newer trends & improvise basic processes. There is practically no sector which has remained untouched from the reach of Data Science. Data Scientists, with the right set of skills and expertise, are in demand in a wide range of industries where businesses are realizing the potential of enabling analytics in their organization.

Though the demand for Data Scientists in our country and abroad is significantly high, there is a huge dearth of skilled professionals in the respective field. The Post-Graduate Diploma in Data Science has been conceptualized to prepare professionals in DataScience, who are keen to make a career in this exciting field.


Fresh Graduates and Experienced Working Professional interested in learning the different tools and techniques of data science and successful implementation of data science in the organization.
