The demand for Data Science and Analytics professionals have reached an all-time high. Here’s why.


Data scientists are new-age analytical data experts who possess technical skills to solve complex problems and help businesses make informed decisions. Regardless of their size, organizations need data scientists to extract meaningful insights from the data that help them gauge insights and make calculated decisions.

Though the need for data scientists has always been high across businesses, the ongoing pandemic has stimulated their demand, making this profession reach an all-time high. According to Analytics Insight, by 2025, there will be 137,630 data science job openings in India, rising from 62,793 jobs in 2020. In 2020 and 2021, millions of people lost their jobs across various verticals. Nevertheless, the need for data scientists never saw a dip even when the world was struggling to stay afloat. In fact, the data science job outlook is brighter in a post-pandemic world where future trends need to be predicted to mitigate severe impacts. Enterprise swiftness and cost reduction have become a priority for business leaders.

In the upcoming years, data science can predict some of the gravest issues of the current time, such as climate change and earthquakes.

Data scientists help organizations make smarter decisions and identify inefficiencies.

How to become a Data Scientist the world looks up to?
The spiked demand for data scientists skilled in data, analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence has to be met through a quick response from higher education. To cater to the fast-growing demand for data scientists professionals, higher education institutes must instill skills in students that train them for multiple roles, such as data engineer, data governance, data privacy, security specialist, and data product developer.

To cater to this maddening demand of data scientists, Shiv Nadar University, Delhi NCR – in partnership with Jigsaw Academy – a globally recognized premier training provider in the fields of data science & emerging technologies, offers students a unique Data Science and Analytics for Business (DSAB) program that is designed to help them solve the most complex business problems using advanced predictive modeling and machine learning techniques. Though there are multiple benefits that students can reap from this program, a few of them are:

·        Learning from an Institution of Eminence

·       Research-focused multidisciplinary core vision

·       Personalized mentorship and tutorials by practitioners experts

·       Feedback and coaching to perfect skills

·       Peer-to-Peer learning and collaboration

·       Handpicked faculty from across the globe

·       Blend of synchronous and asynchronous learning

·       Networking opportunities with industry’s top leaders

·       Case studies and projects from various industries

·       Exposure to competitive hackathons

·       Placement assistance

Some of the key modules that students learn during their tenure at Shiv Nadar University, Delhi NCR, include Descriptive Analytics with SQL and Excel, Data Manipulation and Wrangling with Python, Statistics for Data Science, Statistical Modeling with Python, Machine Learning Models with Python, amongst others.

Students at the University attend live classes and receive ample hands-on practice in a simulated environment that includes over 170 hours of instructor-led training from some of the best leaders in the field with an equal amount of asynchronous readings.

Benefits to reap after the completion of your program
Once you complete the program, your journey doesn’t end there. You will become one of the most efficient data scientists of the time and will be ready to get hired by some of the top giants of the world, including Mu Sigma, Accenture, Wipro, IBM, Genpact JP Morgan.

According to the National Association of Software and Services Companies (Nasscom), the Indian Big data analytics sector is expected to witness almost eight-fold growth to reach $16 billion by 2025 from the current level of $2 billion. So, if you want to be a part of one of the most booming industries, becoming just a data scientist won't help. You have to be a good one who is detail-oriented, has critical reasoning, is creative to discover various operations to generate more values, is open-minded to help suspend judgment to reach the best possible solution and is patient to shape technical abilities into achievements. Shiv Nadar University, Delhi NCR, does precisely that and makes you an efficient data scientist who can efficiently conquer modern world problems.
