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:

  1. Banking, Finance and Insurance

  2. Marketing and e-Commerce

  3. Public Systems

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.
