  7. vikram G.S 1 year ago

    MSc in Business Analytics from Bits Pilani is one of the best. Its a 2.5 year Post Graduate Degree Program. Its not a certification as compared to others. The syllabus is really very exhaustive and covers everything that is required to become a Data Scientist. Its offered in distance learning mode and is for working professionals. I explored the top 10 above mentioned options and compared it with the syllabus being offered by BITS. BITS has more depth and covers all aspects. Please look into bits syllabus before deciding on any course…

    It is the first and only institute in Gujarat in association with IBM.
