Bombay (Maharashtra) [India], June 29 (ANI / BusinessWire India): The inaugural cohort of the Bachelor of Data Science (BDS) program at the SP Jain School of Global Management has achieved excellent placement results, validating the skills shortage in this field by full growth.
The school reported that more than 80 percent of students who stayed in Australia after completing their studies found employment in Australia. FTE salaries offered in Sydney range from AUD 60,000 to AUD 80,000 per year.
In India, students were interviewed and, in most cases, recruited by companies such as AT Kearney, Here Technologies, Wolters Kluwers, Adaptive Investments Boston, ZS Associates, eClerx, Brillio, Bridei2i, Nexon, Simplyy and Mindfield. Annual salaries ranged from INR 10 lakhs to INR 14 lakhs in India. In Vietnam, students received offers from VP Bank Hanoi, OFB Bank Ho Chi Mihn City, and Raffles Inc. Vietnam (a leading data analytics company). A few students have been accepted into reputable masters programs at top American universities like the University of Chicago.
“The high starting salaries are a clear sign that our program has given students the foundational skills and abilities that employers look for and need. Not only are they equipped with the technical skills to get started, but they also have the broader strengths of critical thinking, creativity, communication, and leadership. These are the attributes that employers believe are vital to the future of work, ”shares Nitish Jain, president of SP Jain.
“In our experience, companies recruit students because of their skills and achievements. Therefore, the BDS program has a strong focus on skill development (like coding, cloud engineering, machine learning software like Keras, TensorFlow, and SAS) and achievement (like industry certifications on AWS, SAS and more) and research publications, ”shares Prof. Abhijit Dasgupta, BDS Program Director at SP Jain.
“Our BDS students have published in ABDC journals like Elsevier, made presentations at conferences at IEEE, University of California, etc. Students have also obtained MS admissions at major US universities in New York. , Chicago and Atlanta, terms of targeted jobs, but beyond that – the long-term career of a professional. We are proud of our students. “
BDS is a futuristic three-year multi-city program accredited by the Australian Government’s Higher Education Standards and Quality Agency (TEQSA). Students can choose to study in Mumbai (Year 1) and Sydney (Years 2 and 3) or complete the three years of the program in Sydney.
