WHY I CHOSE GL
I had done a lot of research on the various institutes offering analytics courses, the other options I considered included ISB and the IIMs. The faculty quality and the content really impressed me; I was also inspired by the profile of the Chairman. I am glad I made the decision to pursue the PGP-BABI at Great Lakes Institute of Management.
MOST HELPFUL ASPECT OF THE PROGRAM
The faculty quality, content, and industry sessions were very useful. Industry relevant curriculum delivered by top notch faculty has helped me apply my learnings in interviews and at work. I would like to specially thank Professor PKV for his wonderful sessions.
PERSONAL GROWTH WITH PROFESSIONAL GROWTH
Having liked minded students in the batches has really helped; we discussed latest industry trends and opportunities. Having a good peer group was another major benefit of the course.
WHAT I DO THESE DAYS
I work at Brillio, and our client is the Sales and Marketing Analytics department at Dell. We collaborate with the leadership teams spread across continents to optimize sales and marketing efforts at Dell.
WHERE THERE IS A PROBLEM, THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY!
Convincing senior leaders in the organization about the reliability of data and insights had been a challenge since they rely more on intuition and experience. It took some time to convince them about the value analytics and data science adds.
MY ADVICE TO ASPIRING TRANSITION SEEKERS
For people trying to move from non-analytics/IT background to Analytics, it is important to clearly understand the business context and applications. Then they should learn the concepts thoroughly and keep themselves updated with the latest trends.
