Masters Course Banner

Masters in Data Science and Business Analytics is a 2 years full time postgraduate course that facilitates one to learn technical skills and practical insights to Data Science. The aim is to provide students with the technical and analytical skills required for acquiring, managing, analyzing and extracting insight from data.

The program combines theory and practice to enable graduates of the program to meet the demands of the data-driven economy of the future.

The program aims at:

  1. Providing students with a strong mathematical and statistics foundation that will enable them to appropriately formulate models and apply optimization techniques for data analyses challenges.
  2. Preparing them to be able to communicate technical ideas effectively through both oral presentations and written reports.
  3. Enabling students to assess the level of privacy and security of a technical solution to a data science problem.

Training Methodology

“We believe those who advance the furthest in life tend to be those who acquire knowledge at both ends of the spectrum and acquire it in a variety of ways.”

Classroom Learning


As a data scientist, your ability to build reliable and efficient models that can be applied to real-world problems depends on how well you know your theoretical concepts.


Data science is a very hands-on and practical field that requires a solid foundation in programming and visualisation skills. Practical subjects like Python, SQL and Power BI in the syllabus helps gain this expertise.

Case studies

Data Science is all about extracting insights from the data and applying it to your problems. Working on real-world use cases and complex business scenarios prepare you for transitioning from academics to employment.

Industry connects

Data Science experts interact with the students to give them an overview about the Data Science industry, its career opportunities, salary packages, scope for future & the skills that will get them hired.

Experience based Learning


Internships transforms a student into a fully-trained industry executive with real-time exposure producing highly confident and productive trainees for the Industry with an opportunity to put them on a successful career path.


Project Based Learning is a teaching method in which students learn by actively engaging in real-world and personally meaningful projects and develop deep content knowledge as well as critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication skills.
