SAS India has collaborated with Goa Institute of Management (GIM) to offer a two-year full time residential post-graduate management programme in Big Data Analytics (PGDM BDA). According to the B-School, the programme is designed to address the new paradigm of fact-based decision making associated with the advent of Big Data. The main objective of this programme is to prepare future ready managers who are well versed with Big Data and Analytics. The programme is aimed to impart hands-on training to students in data visualisation, advanced analytics, machine learning, along with communication skills required by a business manager.
For this programme, candidates will be admitted through their CAT/GMAT/CMAT score and aptitude in Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning. The course is divided into six terms. In the first term, the students are provided with a perspective of management along with an introduction to Analytics. The next two terms will focus on learning languages like SAS, R, Python and various emerging technologies all through problem-solving with live data sets in a Data Lab. The students shall thus be readied to take up industry assignments in a company during their summer internship.
College Comparison based on Courses, Placement, Rank, Fee
Ajit Parulekar, Director, Goa Institute of Management, said, “The course is designed with a vision to produce what we called data-fluent, future-ready managers who would have complete business perspective as well as hands-on experience in solving business problems with big data tools and technologies. The course is structured in a manner so as to fully prepare students to take up front-line managerial jobs in data-intensive companies”.
Bhuvan Nijhawan, Director, Education, SAS Asia Pacific mentioned, “Today, every organisation requires analytics for business decisions and the need will only amplify in future. While there are limitless opportunities for the students commencing their career in this field, there is an acute shortage of skilled talent. SAS along with GIM is looking to address this very skill gap that exists today. The program in association with GIM is an effort to offer a platform for students to enhance their skills, provide hands-on experience and gain a competitive edge in the industry.”
The course is premised on industry interface for which a novel concept of “Industry Associate” is implemented. Select companies/organisations which have been using analytics are associated with the programme as Industry associates. Their analytics experts will constantly interact with students in formal and informal ways and help ensure the programme remains well tuned with industry needs.
The following year will include the area of specialisation from amongst three elective buckets:
Banking, Finance and Insurance
Marketing and e-Commerce
During these two terms, they would be imparted in-depth management knowledge in that area along with relevant analytics course. The students would do an internship on an industry project in one of the associate companies for the last term. Only after successful completion of it, they would earn their diplomas.

hi Nagesh PGDM: Stands for Post Graduate Diploma in Management. MBA: A Master in Business Administration foloowing are the details and you can get clear with your doubts
Hope you're doing great.
A few years back, Healthcare management wasn't an obvious choice among many aspirants due to ambiguity revolves around placement opportunities. However things are changing drastically, a lot of students are taking part in Healthcare Management courses, especially those from Medical background. Today, doctors need to brush up their managerial skill if they want to run an organisation of their own. For example, MAX Hospital, Fortis, Dr Reddy, Dr Batra are some of the most established names in Healthcare management industry.
The Healthcare management industry is booming exponentially and job opportunities are rapidly increasing in the market. By 2022, it's been estimated that there will be $133 billion industry as per IBEF reports. So, I don't see any point if you're planning to pursue Healthcare management as your future career option. The HCM graduates are handsomely paid and at par with any students from other streams of MBA/PGDM.
Whenever we talk about the top 50 business school in India, Goa Institute of Management(GIM) has a sure shot position in that list. It's a decent b-school with good Return on Investment. As far as the Post graduation Diploma course (PGDM) course is concerned it has good teaching faculty. The case study based discussion is one of the USPs of GIT. HCM is one of the most preferred choices among aspirants and placements are par with the other PGDM students. The faculty members are highly trained and have enormous industrial experience. The college calls guest lecturer to the campus on a regular basis.
Eligibility Criteria and Cutoffs: A candidate who has scored around 80-85 percentile in CAT/XAT/CMAT can expect an interview call. However, for HCM courses, profile-based shortlisting is prefered and the candidate with a good profile and decent competitive exam score can expect the call from GIM.
ROI: In terms of the return of investment, the course fee for HCM is close to 12 lacs. And the average placement bracket of the batch is around 11-12 lacs and highest placement offered last year was 24 lacs. HCM seems to have competitive ROI compare to other management courses.
Hope, you'll find this useful. Do reach out in the comment section below for more detail.
All the best! Cheers!
