More and more professionals are looking to upgrade their skills so they can can equip themselves for the fast-growing field of business analytics. While many of the leading educational institutes like IIT Bombay and IIM Bangalore have started offering courses in this field, there is still a gap between what the industry expects and what the students learn.
Jigsaw Academy recently featured in one of the articles in Times of India that talks about the growing demand for analytic skills in the industry. One of the interesting facts highlighted in this article is that a third of the student placements in MBA institutes like NMIMS are actually happening in the analytics domain. This is is stark contrast with the situation even 10 years ago when IIM graduates had not even heard of analytics, let alone seek placement in it.
