Programme Overview

In today’s dynamic business landscape, the ability to drive corporate strategy and business decisions through data-driven insights leads to market leadership and gives organisations a competitive edge. Increasingly, the integration of data science and analytics is proving to be a game-changer for businesses across industries. Organisations are seeking to gain revenue-generating insights from data and build future strategies for business growth.

IIM Kozhikode’s Advanced Data Science for Managers provides insights on data management, exploratory data analysis, and the use of machine learning algorithms. Along with a strategic and managerial understanding, the programme will help professionals enhance their proficiency in data science and gain in-depth skills and robust knowledge of machine learning algorithms and techniques supported by R and Python.

Since most of the data available today is in an unstructured format, joining this year-long programme will train professionals in techniques such as text mining and social media analytics that are vital for maximising business growth and transformation. Additionally, this programme’s effective pedagogy and focus on real-world examples, case studies, and practical sessions will assist in identifying data insights and making high-output business decisions. On completing this programme, you will receive a certificate of completion and will be eligible for the prestigious Executive Alumni Status of IIM Kozhikode.

As part of the programme, you will also get access to Emeritus Career Services, which empowers you to manage your career proactively.
