Jigsaw Academy announced the launch of a new and improved curriculum for its flagship course: The Foundation course in Analytics Jigsaw Academy has seen a sharp increase in student enrolments from countries such as the US, UK and Australia in 2012 and the new curriculum has been designed to have a more global appeal.

“We realised the global appeal of our training programs at a very early stage. Most of the examples and case studies used in the course deal with global, rather than local, businesses. As an example, case studies include data sets from a Singapore based telecom company, a US based horse racing company and a German bank” says Sarita Digumarti, one of the co-founders of Jigsaw Academy.

“One of our key strengths is the fact that we use real business data sets in the course. This gives the students a flavour of real life examples of how analytics can be applied to solve business problems” says Gaurav Vohra, the CEO of Jigsaw Academy.

Jigsaw Academy is a Bangalore based analytics training company that is run by analytics professionals. Their courses are designed and delivered by industry experts who have applied analytics to solve business problems in a variety of fields like retail, FMCG, financial services, telecom and health care. The instructors use their real-world experiences to teach analytical skills that are most valuable at the work place.

“We are an institute that is run by industry professionals. All of our faculty have extensive experience of working on business problems and have strong ties with the industry. This allows us to keep a close eye on the pulse of the industry. The changes in our curriculum are based on the feedback we got from analytics organizations that work closely with us” says Sarita.

Due to its close association with business organizations, Jigsaw Academy has managed to keep its course up to date with the latest developments in the field and the focus is on equipping the students with the skills that are most in demand at today’s work place.

The next batch of their Foundation course starts on 12th January and its promises to be packed with real life case studies and examples from around the globe. For more details and enrolment, visit the Foundation course in analytics page.

With demand for analytical skills growing at an astonishing pace, Jigsaw Academy has the opportunity to tap the global market. If it is successful, Jigsaw will be among the first Indian companies to build a brand that is known for the quality of its offerings and not just the price.
