Jigsaw Academy, a premier analytics training company has this month launched a Post Graduate Program in Business Analytics in partnership with great Lakes Institute of Management in Gurgaon, India. “It is with much pride that we successfully launched this program as it complements our vision of spreading analytics knowledge and training a new generation of managers in data analytics.” says Gaurav Vohra CEO of Jigsaw Academy.
Earlier this year Jigsaw Academy began their tour of Business Schools across the country with the aim of spreading awareness about the huge growth and potential of Data Analytics and Big Data. They conducted workshops for students and faculty which was well received. “Every college we visited, the students and faculty were excited and eager to learn more about the field of analytics. We realized that extending our analytics expertise into the college and university classrooms would enable us to equip budding managers and others graduates with a wide depth of analytics skills.” continues Gaurav.
St. Josephs College of Business Administration was the first institute to approach Jigsaw Academy and consequently Jigsaw conducted a one credit analytics course on campus, as part of their Post Graduate Programme in Business Administration. With more and more recruiters demanding that candidates showcase analytics skill in the interview itself, educational institutes especially business schools have understood the importance of equipping their students with these skills. They know that managers across levels need such skills to interpret and analyse the data at hand and that they must be able to use these insights to make business recommendations.
Jigsaw Academy plans to take this initiative forward more aggressively in 2014 and are looking at several more tie ups with other educational institutes to offer analytics courses as a part of their regular course curriculums. The courses will cover the essentials of business analytics and will provides hands on training on popular analytical tools and technologies, using practical case studies and real life data sets.
