IIM Lucknow Launches Batch 5 of the Executive Programme in Data Science
The programme, in collaboration with Emeritus, aims to upskill professionals towards building their identity as industry-ready data science professionals.
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.

Innovative Ideas and Breakthroughs from NMIMS MPSTME Civil Engineering
The department has published two patents, research papers at international conferences
The Civil Engineering department of NMIMS MPSTME has been making significant strides in the field of disaster management, flood resilience, and sustainable infrastructure. The department has published two patents, research papers at international conferences, and completed several student-led projects on topics such as renewable energy, groundwater modelling, and self-healing concrete.
The first patent, ‘Automated Flood Water Regulating Multipurpose System,’ proposes a novel approach to flood resilience by constructing multipurpose wells on the banks of rivers to discharge excess water and generate hydropower. The second patent, ‘Aqua Barrier,’ is an automated mechanism that can protect any flood-prone area, regardless of its size, from any disasters caused due to water.
The student-led projects are equally impressive, with topics ranging from low-volume rural concrete roads to oscillating tidal wave energy converters. These projects showcase the department’s focus on sustainable infrastructure, renewable energy, and innovative design.
The faculty at NMIMS MPSTME Civil Engineering department, led by Head, Dr. Meenal Mategaonkar and Research coordinator, Dr. Jigisha Vashi, played a vital role in guiding and mentoring students toward research excellence. Their expertise and guidance have enabled students to participate and win awards in prestigious competitions such as the CDRI’s ‘Imagining Disaster Resilient Structures’ and The University of Queensland’s ‘Engineering Design Challenge, and AAKAR at IIT Bombay.’
The department’s success is further evidenced by the achievements of its students in national and international conferences. Students presented their research papers in Scopus Indexed papers and conferences such as the 9th Indian Young Geotechnical Engineering Conference and the Eighth Indian Young Geotechnical Conference.
Dr. Meenal Mategaonkar, Head of the Civil Engineering Department, MPSTME, NMIMS, said, “The achievements of the NMIMS MPSTME Civil Engineering department demonstrate its commitment to developing innovative solutions for complex problems in the field of civil engineering.
