JK Business School organises webinar on careers in data analytics

Knowing business analytics has improved employability of our students, says Director Sanjiv Marwah

JK Business School organised a webinar on career perspectives in data analytics by Gaurav Shinh, the CEO of Daaslab, for its PGDM students. The session gave the JKBians a deeper insight into the data analytics industry, the future of analytics, and the career opportunities available.

Interacting with the students Gaurav Shinh (CEO Daaslab) said "Data Analytics or Business Analytics is not just about creating a formula or quickly solving a problem. It is the careful application of applied mathematics and statistics to convert any problem into statistical data and then ascertaining that this trove of information is used in the making of accurate and informed decisions. Those who are not from engineering or mathematics backgrounds need not be afraid. The ultimate objective is to create tools that can make a larger impact from a business standpoint."

Prof Sanjiv Marwah, Director, JK Business School, said: "It was an interactive and informative session for all the students as well as us among the faculty members. At JKBS we have always stressed the importance of data analytics and, therefore, we make sure that our students are comfortable with this subject. It is a vast area of knowledge and the number of opportunities available is extraordinary. We explore this field actively with seasoned professionals such as Gaurav Shinh, and familiarity with this area of work has led to a great improvement in the employment quotient of our students."
