Programme Overview

Today, data is at the heart of every successful organisation, with data professionals playing a pivotal role in business decisions. The World Economic Forum predicts that by 2022, skills will be more important than job titles as the labour market moves towards multi-faceted professionals rather than singularly specialised ones. Keeping in mind this growing trend, now is the time to upskill so that the world is your oyster.

To help you learn the skills required to be successful in a data-driven world, IIM Kozhikode has launched the Certificate Programme in Data Science. This programme is designed for professionals from any domain looking to advance their careers. It will provide you with skills that will give you an insight into modern data science practices.

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