SNU ties up with Jigsaw Academy

The eight-month data science and analytics programme is delivered online

Shiv Nadar University, Delhi-NCR, has joined hands with Jigsaw Academy, to offer a Data Science and Analytics for Business (DSAB) programme for students and young pros to upskill themselves. DSAB is a comprehensive, eight-month, 200 hours certificate programme delivered online in collaboration with Jigsaw Academy.

Dr Bibek Banerjee, Dean of School of Management and Entrepreneurship, and Director of Strategic Initiatives at Shiv Nadar University, Delhi-NCR, said, “Data is the asset that most 21st century businesses are leveraging to generate intelligence that is powering humans to collaborate with smart machines and create value that is redefining the boundaries of development. The programme is designed to equip students with the cutting-edge skills required to create the 'data-driven intelligence' that guides such value-creating decisions in organisations.”

‘Creating specialists’

DSAB’s comprehensive case study-based approach to real-life business scenarios with practice on rich business datasets will allow learners to build a strong foundation in both, technical and business aspects of data science and analytics.

While talking about this collaborative initiative, CEO and Co-founder of Jigsaw Academy, Gaurav Vohra, said, “The analytics industry experts and hiring managers are very clear about what 'kind' of analytics or Big Data and Machine Learning professionals they want to hire. The Data Science and Analytics for Business programme's content caters to the unique requirements of job roles and profiles, creating analytics specialists, not generalists.”
