Success Stories

"I had no knowledge of data science before and wasn’t sure if I would be disciplined enough to take up an online course. The classroom learning allowed me to clear my doubts right then and there which helped a lot. And the inputs that I gained from the mock interview sessions helped me crack the placement process of multiple companies."
Associate Analyst, Mahindra&Mahindra

"Thanks to the program, I got a 100% salary hike and I switched from manufacturing to analytics. Now I am working as a data scientist at Marlabs. I would recommend this program to any young professional trying to build their career in the field of analytics."
