According to The Harvard Business Review, data science is the sexiest job of the 21st century. “We expect big data guys to be earning upwards of crores of rupees in the coming years,” says Gaurav Vohra, CEO & co-founder, Jigsaw Academy, Bangalore, which offers courses on data analytics. “We would recommend analytics or data science to anyone comfortable with numbers and with a decent level of quantitative aptitude.” Social media mining suits the mass communication student, whereas analytics with excel can be customised for those from the commerce and humanities streams.
