Post Graduate Diploma in Business Analytics (PGDBA)

The Post Graduate Diploma in Business Analytics (PGDBA) weekend program is being completely recast to reflect current industry needs. The goal is to make the weekend diploma program like the full-time Business Analytics program at SCMHRD which has a curriculum that reflects current trends and needs in the Analytics domain.

One major change was to redo the entire program around the R programming environment, which indubitably is the major tool for Analytics as practiced in the industry today. An effort has been made to introduce the students to concepts in Analytics that are in use in the industry today. In addition, students of the program will get an introduction to ideas from two major topics in current Analytics: “Big Data” and “Mobile Analytics” in the “Trends in Analytics” course.
