The verdict is out – Analytics Vidhya says the Jigsaw Bocconi EPBA, “Is a Deal Worth Considering”

It has been really overwhelming to read the latest review by Analytics Vidhya for our Executive Program in Business Analytics. Kunal Jain, has given a very positive feedback about the course and says that the course is a ‘Deal Worth Considering’. Below is a quick snapshot of the original review article. Find out Kunal Jain’s views on the structure of the course, the program’s unique placement support and the industry interaction with students.

About the course

I think the joint tie up of a Business school with international repute and domain excellence of Jigsaw makes a formidable combination to run the course.

Target Audience benefits:

I think the target audience and the format makes sense. 120 hours of classroom interaction over 18 days look sufficient to nourish the learning appetite of candidates, which is also complemented well by online classes and pre-recorded material.

Course structure:

The course structure looks fairly comprehensive to me. They not only cover various disciplines of business analytics, but also big data, data science and machine learning. I think it will be a very intense program for a working professional, but who has benefited in this world without the hard work. The focus on Big Data is also unique to this course as most other courses do not delve in this topic in detail

This is usually a tricky situation for a lot of programs. Some choose to focus on hands on tools and techniques, while others focus more on structured thinking. MISB & Jigsaw plan to keep a fine balance between the two. I think this is where having partners with different strengths really helps.

Industry Interactions:

Initially 30-40% of contact classes with industry leaders seemed a bit lower than other programs offered in India which provide up to 50% interaction with industry. However, an important point to understand here is, the quality of interaction matters most and the interaction here seemed top notch.


If the team is able to deliver 70% placement in year 1, it would be quite commendable. As per the best of my knowledge, not many institutes have been able to achieve this rate in the first year of operation.

Overall Verdict:

I think that the combination of a top European Business school and a strong domain partner like Jigsaw make a formidable combination. It is already showing early signs of success. There are some finer tweaks the team needs to make in the upcoming batch – higher industry interaction being one of them. The team is well aware of this and has the capabilities to make these changes. At a price close to 4 Lakhs, I think this is a deal worth considering, if you are looking for an executive program in Business Analytics.
