Business models are changing swiftly, and organizations are becoming more data-driven than ever, adopting data and analytics in their new business strategies to thrive and achieve their business goals. Business Analytics has become the need of the hour to take smarter and better business decisions and it has found its way into essential business operations, as it plays a pivotal role in improving products and business models with the help of crucial consumer & business insights.

The ongoing pandemic has made it challenging for freshers with less or no industry experience to land the desired job role. Business Analytics has an ocean of opportunities for every data lover out there. The domain offers lucrative careers to mid-level professionals and freshers alike. There are more than 8,000 open jobs for Business Analysts only on LinkedIn. An entry-level Business Analyst with less than a year to 1-year experience earns an average salary between INR 3 lakhs to INR 5 lakhs annually.

The key to building a successful career in any industry is by continuously learning. Regardless of the industry, upskilling in Business Analytics helps learners and professionals in staying relevant as per the current job market demands and in getting an upper hand in the competition. Upskilling in this domain also opens several doors of opportunities for freshers, who are looking at kick-starting their careers towards becoming a Future Leader.

Anuj Verma chose Jigsaw Academy as a learning partner in his upskilling journey with our 10-month-long online Integrated Program in Business Analytics (IPBA). For this Future Leaders Program, Jigsaw Academy has collaborated with one of India’s Premier Business Schools, the Indian Institute of Management, Indore (IIM Indore). It is designed for learners who seek a career transformation and want to see themselves in leadership roles in the near future.

Anuj started his upskilling journey in Business Analytics after finishing a Bachelor’s degree in Business Economics. He got his break in the corporate world as a Virtual Intern – Data Analyst Consulting at KPMG Australia after completing the Integrated Program in Business Analytics with us.

We spoke to Anuj about his learning experience with Jigsaw Academy upon completion of the program. Let’s hear what he has to say about our Future Leaders Program.

1. What made you consider upskilling in the Business Analytics domain?

The Business Analytics industry is piping hot with job opportunities. It is “the future” as most prominent brands are switching from traditional methods to a data-driven approach to find insights that can help them solve their business problems. I chose to upskill in Business Analytics just after my graduation for the same reason. I was determined to enter this domain which is filled with lucrative career opportunities.

2. Describe the highlights of your upskilling journey with us?

I come from a non-technical background, and everything I learned in this program helped me expand my skill sets as per today’s industry requirements. Specifically, I gained a good command over Python and SQL because of the comprehensive curriculum of the Integrated Program In Business Analytics (IPBA).
