Programme Overview

In today's dynamic and competitive business environment, there is a need to drive accountability and deliver measurable business impact. Data empowers professionals to create value, leverage digital insights and embrace data-driven business intelligence to make informed decisions while augmenting business growth. A data-first culture is more important now than ever before to remain competitive.

According to Gartner's Top 10 Data and Analytics Trends for 2021, businesses are beginning to understand the importance of using data and analytics to accelerate business transformation initiatives. Instead of being the secondary focus, analytics is being integrated into core functions, which leads to better decision-making.

This techno-business focused programme, IIM Kozhikode's Advanced Management Programme in Business Analytics, in collaboration with Emeritus Executive Education, is carefully designed to equip professionals with a hands-on understanding of how analytics is the new oil and the necessity of the hour to drive both growth and revenue. It takes an integrated approach to business, data, and leadership so managers can leverage data to cultivate, transform and nurture informed decision-making.
