Sri City, November 11, 2019:…The 2-year full-time MBA program specializing in Data Science offered by IFMR-GSB, Krea University was ranked 9th among full-time Data Science programs in the country by Analytics India magazine in November 2019. The program was assessed favorably on all four components of the ranking: curriculum, faculty, the student experience, and external collaborations.
The MBA program in Data Science offered by IFMR-GSB combines deep expertise in Data Science (statistics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning) with broad training in the business disciplines of accounting, finance, human resources, information systems, marketing and operations. Students are admitted on the basis of their performance in an entrance exam as well as personal interviews to assess aptitude for data science. They are introduced to programming in Python and R languages in their first year, so that they can apply their coding skills to their internship and their second year courses such as predictive analytics, deep learning, and natural language processing.
A substantial capstone project, supervised by data science faculty, serves to tie together the data science skills acquired throughout the 2-year program (data wrangling, visualization, modeling and prediction) into fluency across the entire life-cycle of data science / analytics projects, from inception to evaluation.
