"The Bachelor of Data Science program at SP Jain is designed to equip students with a comprehensive understanding of data analysis and the skills necessary to tackle complex business problems by effectively leveraging both quantitative and qualitative data. We are thrilled to see the success of our graduates and their impressive job offers from leading companies in the technology and e-commerce sectors. The curriculum at SP Jain is designed to keep pace with the fast-evolving digital landscape, and the participation of industry professionals from the technology sector demonstrates our commitment to providing a cutting-edge education. The high starting salaries our graduates have secured are a testament to the efficacy of our programme, and showcase the core skills and aptitudes that employers demand and appreciate," shared Dr Abhijit Dasgupta, Director of BDS program at SP Jain.
One of the significant highlights of this program is that it offers students a variety of opportunities to gain real work experience with top companies and universities even before they graduate. Students of the program have previously interned at Adaptive Investments (US), the University of Massachusetts at Boston (under the guidance of renowned professor Dr Lawrence Pohlman), AI Australia (Sydney), VP Bank (Vietnam), Johnson & Johnson (Sydney), Instagram, Facebook, ISI, NITIE, Edify Accelerator, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Bombay and other top US and European universities.
"I did an internship with The University of Massachusetts and another one with HDFC ERGO, where I was a Data Science intern. One thing that SP Jain has always focused on, right from the beginning, is looking at real-world business problems and solving them, even in class. So, when I started my internship, I found it very easy to understand their workflow model and acclimatise because the kind of business problems I was solving at work were on the same lines as the ones I was solving in class," shared Vedant Kabra from the Class of 2022. On completing the BDS program last year, Vedant landed a role with the Macquarie Group in Sydney, Australia.
The BDS is a three-year multi-city program accredited by the Australian government's Tertiary Education Quality & Standards Agency (TEQSA). Students can opt to study in Mumbai (Year 1) and Sydney (Years 2 and 3) or complete all three years of the program in Sydney. Upon graduation, students may live and work in Australia by applying for a post study work visa* of up to four years.
