Business analytics (BA) refers to the skills, technologies, applications and practices for continuous iterative exploration and investigation of past business performance to gain insight and drive business planning. Increases in computing power and the amount of data collected have led to the development and widespread adoption of analytics by numerous industries.
The proposed programme on Business Analytics will combine coursework on developing analytical thinking, introductory and advanced statistical concepts, and applications across wide section of industry and functional domains.
In partnership with SAS, a 5-day ‘Statistical Business Analyst’ programme will be conducted by SAS leading to SAS Certification as well. This program will be delivered by SAS at the end of the Certification Program offered by NMIMS. The students will be provided by the SAS course material and the necessary software package with validity over the training period.
Current day IT enabled organizations generate massive amounts of data (often referred to as "Big Data") from transactions, business interactions, social exchanges and sensors. Such data provides immense opportunity to use information to better-run the business.
This data continues to grow exponentially with increased adoption of Internet and mobile technologies. There is an expected shortage of talented analysts who can help organizations work with this much big data.
McKinsey Global Institute’s Big data:The next frontier for innovation, competition, and productivity estimates that by 2018, “the United States alone could face a shortage of 140,000 to 190,000 people with deep analytical skills as well as 1.5 million managers and analysts with the know-how to use the analysis of big data to make effective decisions.”
In keeping with the key objectives the subjects that will be offered are as under:
Marketing / Financial Analytics
5-day ‘Statistical Business Analyst’ program that will be conducted by SAS leading to SAS Certification as well.
