Business Analytics is the technique of deriving trends and patterns by utilizing data to drive profits and derive solutions to potential problems. Being one of the most sought-after emerging technologies, Business Analytics finds applications across industries. Due to a severe lack of traditional education courses, pursuing a certification course in Business Analytics is important and necessary to receive the right opportunities. The Business Analytics certification course, like the Integrated Program in Business Analytics by IIM Indore and UNext Jigsaw, is designed to get learners acquainted and master the necessary skills and relevant technologies to be successful Business Analysts. Unlike other online courses on Business Analytics, this 10-month online course ensures you transform into a job-ready professional after completing the program.

With businesses becoming highly data-driven, the demand for high-impact Business Analysts has never been higher. The most significant advantage of kickstarting a career in Business Analytics is the handsome remuneration offered by the domain and the multi-industry opportunities that come with it. However, there are not many certifications in Business Analytics courses available. This has inadvertently led to an acute increase in the number of Business Analytics courses in India. The Integrated Program in Business Analytics, by Jigsaw in collaboration with IIM Indore, is among the top online courses on Business Analytics designed to help learners master both the techniques of Business Analytics and Management skills.

A Business Analytics certificate indicates one’s passion and commitment towards the domain and the relevant competencies mastered. It is the best indication to the hiring manager or an organization of all the latest skills and techniques mastered by you to become an excellent project-ready Business Analyst. The best Business Analytics certification program one can pursue is the Integrated Program in Business Analytics by Jigsaw in collaboration with IIM Indore.

The quality of a course can only be measured by the skillset and exposure it offers to its learners. Although there is a huge demand for skilled professionals in the domain of Business Analytics, the main concern is the pressing skill gap. The most effective way to overcome the hurdle and reap the maximum benefits of the opportunities available in the domain is to pursue a competent Business Analytics course like the Integrated Program in Business Analytics(IPBA), by IIM Indore in collaboration with Jigsaw, for maximum industry exposure and excellent career opportunities. Designed and delivered by the best minds in the industry, this program has a robust curriculum focused on hands-on learning enabling its learners to become the business leaders of tomorrow.

Apart from a bachelor’s degree, there is no specific knowledge required for taking this Business Analytics course. However, this 10-month Business Analytics certification program is most effective for people with strong analytical and numerical skills. Aspiring Business Analytics professionals must also possess good interpretive and problem-solving skills to derive information from raw data and explain the analysis process and its outcome. Having some basic knowledge of computer software(s) like Querying Language (SQL, Hive, Pig), scripting Language (Python, Matlab), Statistical Language (R, SAS, SPSS), and Excel can make the learning process of any Business Analyst course easier. 

Every Business Analytics course has a stipulated time during which the complete course outline is taught to the learners. For instance, the Integrated Program in Business Analytics (IPBA), by Jigsaw in collaboration with IIM Indore is spread over 10 Months with 150+ Hours divided across 12 Modules. It outlines the basics as well as the most sought-after technologies. However, only pursuing a Business Analyst course would not be sufficient to excel, it takes an ample amount of time and effort to master the required skill set.

The Integrated Program in Business Analytics(IPBA), by Jigsaw in collaboration with IIM Indore, is a 100% online course for Business Analysts. There is no need to attend any in-person classes.

Most Business Analytics courses in India do not need you to have any prior knowledge of programming or any other software-relevant tools. This is primarily because the curriculum is structured so as to aid even a novice to master the skills of data analysis. However, some basic knowledge of computer software(s) like Querying Language (SQL, Hive, Pig), Scripting Language (Python, Matlab), Statistical Language (R, SAS, SPSS), and Excel can make the learning process easier if you plan to enroll in any of the Business Analytics courses in India.

The majority of Business Analytics courses in India, focus more on skills development rather than just knowledge accumulation. But, IIM Indore’s Business Analytics certification program is different. In this 10-month online course, hands-on skill development is achieved through capstone projects and case studies, giving the learners a first-hand experience of the industry requirement. Learners will get to work in groups, identify, shortlist, and finalize a project idea that they’ll work on. They will be mentored throughout the various stages by an industry SME. This ensures that participants get to apply the Analytics and Big Data techniques in their projects, including Machine Learning and Predictive Analytics so that they can easily tackle real-life business problems and provide effective solutions in their professional careers.

The Business Analytics courses in India are designed to ensure the learners have the necessary knowledge to explore a wide range of career opportunities. The tools and technologies taught in the Business Analytics certification course by IIM Indore are broad and domain-specific to ensure maximum application. After completing this Business Analytics certification, a learner will be able to become a Machine Learning Engineer, Data Architect, Statistician, Data Analyst, Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Chief Data Officer, Application Architect, Project Manager, Business/Analytics Translator, etc., based on their preference.
