Organizations today operate in a world surrounded by data, and data that is understood and analyzed smartly can play a pivotal role in determining the success of many businesses. Data Science, through its various inherent tools and techniques, is successfully adding value to all the business models by using statistics and deep learning to make better, more relevant and timely decisions. Understanding the dynamics of data and knowing how to deal with it has therefore become a critical skill in an organizational context. No wonder that Harvard Business Review has termed Data Scientist as the Sexiest Job of the 21st Century!
The objective of this course is to introduce participants to the intricacies of data science, and techniques of machine learning.

The course design is oriented to facilitate learning through association of the various management concepts and its application in the business world. Across different modules, participants may be encouraged to apply or relate their in-class learning to live situations at work. Peer learning therefore, would be a key pillar of the process. Take-home projects may be assigned in certain modules.
All enrolled students will also be provided access to our SLIQ Cloud Campus through which students may access other learning aids, reference materials, assessments, case studies, projects and assignments as appropriate. Throughout the duration of the course, students will have the flexibility to reach out to the professors, real time during the class or offline via our SLIQ Cloud Campus to raise questions and clear doubts.
Evaluation methodology is the discretion of the faculty. The methodology includes module based assessments, class contribution, capstone project and any other component as decided by the respective course faculties. Additionally, faculty may choose to conduct a pre-assessment prior to the commencement of certain modules, to ascertain participant readiness to progress further. Basis analysis of the pre-assessment, an individual participant may be required to undertake some refresher/self-study on certain basic areas to help better cope and comprehend the program content.
A minimum of 75% attendance to the live classes is a prerequisite for the successful completion of this program. The program may require participants to work on individual/group assignments and/or projects. The main objective of such assignments/projects will be to help the participants apply their conceptual learning in the program to actual/real life scenarios.
