The Indian Institute of Management Lucknow (IIM Lucknow), ranked as the #6 top B-School in India as per NIRF, 2022, has announced the launch of the fifth batch of the Executive Programme in Data Science. This career-defining 9-month programme with a rating of 4.14/5 from 350+ past participants and alumni will enable mid-and senior-level professionals with a minimum of five years of work experience to harness data insights to make informed business decisions. Delivered through live online and a three-day in-campus immersion at the IIM Lucknow campus, learners will gain comprehensive programming knowledge required to put data to work and derive revenue-generating, business-critical insights.

Every intelligent business decision today is driven by data. India’s Big Data industry is set to form 32% of the worldwide market and US$20 billion by 2026 from the present level of US$6.9 billion (Analytics Insight, 2022), and will have more than 11 million job openings in Data Science by 2026 (India Today, 2022). One of the common denominators across high-performing, industry-leading organisations is their competitive capability in data fluency, including handling, managing, analysing, and interpreting data to drive business growth and efficiency.

Through experiential learning, the Executive Programme in Data Science will equip participants to develop a robust foundation in practical business decision-making using statistics and in-demand data science tools and techniques using Excel and R. So, who are the ideal participants of the programme? Experienced professionals keen to implement data science methodologies and build a data-first culture to drive insight-driven transformation effectively and lead disruptive analytical innovations will benefit from enrolling in this programme. Additionally, through this programme, mid-to-senior professionals can enhance their analytical capabilities to drive data science projects and become more efficient in data-driven decision-making. 

A past participant, while sharing his programme experience, said, “I got an opportunity to enhance my competencies and improve my learning in the field of data science. I will cherish being a part of this programme & I’d like to thank all my professors and the rest of the faculty members. I sincerely appreciate the professors of IIM Lucknow for pushing me beyond boundaries and their needful guidance. And this would also not have been possible without my batch mates’ support and motivation”. At the end of this programme, participants will receive a certificate of completion from IIM Lucknow and eligibility for the prestigious IIM Lucknow Executive Alumni Status.

Commenting on the launch of the fifth batch of the programme, Programme Directors, Prof. Gaurav Garg, Associate Professor, Decision Sciences, and Prof. Alok Dixit, Associate Professor, Finance & Accounting at IIM Lucknow, said, “We have designed this programme to equip participants with in-demand skills to tackle real-world data analysis challenges. Participants will gain a managerial understanding of machine learning concepts and techniques to present visualisations and data stories, which have the power to influence decision-makers and alter business trajectories”.

Mr Mohan Kannegal, CEO, India and APAC, Emeritus, said,  Multiple industry reports suggest that over 2.5 quintillion bytes (2.5 e+9 GB) of data is created daily, and this number is increasing exponentially. Data is indispensable for business success, and a high-growth career demands the ability to identify opportunities, predict future outcomes and make better business decisions. A Michael Page Report (2021) suggests that data science professionals with 3-10 years of experience get annual salaries in the range of INR 25 lakh to INR 65 lakh, while more experienced people can command yearly salaries upwards of INR 1 crore. With insights from leading IIM Lucknow faculty, the Executive Programme in Data Science participants will be equipped with in-demand skills to implement data-based decision-making models in their organisation”.

The fifth batch of this programme begins on September 30, 2022, and has a fee of INR 2,02,000 + GST, with flexible payment options and low-cost EMI options available. This data science course is offered through Emeritus, a global leader in making high-quality education accessible and affordable, offering a digital-first, seamless learning and high engagement experience. Visit the programme page for more details on the programme, and interested applicants should apply soon.

Ms. Melissa Bank, Head of International Education Centre of Excellence, Austrade said, “Australia has always been a preferred destination for Indian students when it comes to higher education. We are seeing an increase in the number of Indian students applying to Australian universities every year. With the re-opening of borders after the pandemic, we are witnessing a constant surge in number of students arriving in Australia. The Australian government is committed to provide them the best-in-class education while also equipping them with necessary skills to facilitate their dream of becoming global citizens. Our goal behind setting up this competition was to help students learn about Australian entrepreneurship eco-system and its institutions. I am glad that all the participants were highly involved with this programme and we have been able to highlight the key differential factor that can make them an entrepreneur.”

The Study Australia Entrepreneurship Challenge was an initiative to engage highly-skilled students from the Indian higher education institutes who participated in a series of hybrid events, which were based on Ted X-meets-Hackathon. The participants formed multidisciplinary teams and participated in a two-week program showcasing the opportunities of Australia’s education sector and the Australian entrepreneurial and start-up ecosystems.

As part of the challenge, the teams created a 3-minute pitch video idea on the following challenge themes – Cybersecurity, Circular Economy, Digital Health, and Creative Industries. The participating teams also had access to mentors from Australian academia and industry who guided them in the development of their video pitches. They got in-depth understanding of their chosen topic during academic spotlights that were delivered by Australian academic experts, as well. The jury panel for the contest included Ms. Melissa Bank, Head of International Education Centre of Excellence, Austrade and Mr Sukhmeet Singh, Co-founder, A2P Energy.

In recent years, Australia has been a leading destination for Indian students seeking to study abroad, and it has progressively emerged as a preferred choice for many. Since the border re-opening in mid-December 2021 until 22 July 2022, over 260,000 student visa holders reached Australia.

Furthermore, the Australian Trade and Investment Commission’s “The Study Australia Industry Experience Program (SAIEP)” was launched for current Indian and other international students at Australian universities to enhance their employability skills.
