he Integrated Program in Business Analytics course by Jigsaw is an excellent course for budding Data Scientists who are completely novice like me in the world of data analytics. The program is a combination of IIM Indore on-campus sessions and weekend online classes. It provides an excellent platform for students to interact and network with faculty and peers from different fields with similar interests as well as develop a good understanding of the basics of data analytics.
