[Best] Top 10 Data Science Training Courses in India : Scientists and Researchers across the world have examined the pragmatic effects of applying data science to wide industry usage. Companies have experienced tremendous uplift in their bottom line by bringing data science into daily use.
Data Science, in simple terms makes use of ‘data’ collected from companies, then uses some kind of algorithms and statistical formulas to derive significant insights such that it (insights) can be used to make informed decisions. Having been overwhelmed by its irresistible potential, small and large companies across the world have taken the initiative to set up busines analytics / data science teams to make optimal usage of their stored data. This has in turn led to a huge upsurge in the demand of data scientists / business analytics professionals across the globe.
To meet this manpower demand, colleges, institutions, training institutes have taken the initiative to deliver data science / analytics knowledge through trainings and certification programs. These trainings & programs are available in online and offline mode, candidates are free to opt as per their convenience.
Learning from Offline modes has always turned out to be beneficial for me (you views might vary here). Learning from a classroom based model allows you to discuss and clarify your queries / doubts directly with teachers and students, which I believe still lacks in online courses.
In this article, I have listed the top data science training Courses in India / top business analytics courses in India on the basis of their curriculum, fees, brand value and its linked influence in the industry. These training programs are in no order.
