Great Lakes’ PG Program – Business Analytics Selection Process Demystified

Every year, thousands of professionals apply to our Post Graduate Program in Business Analytics and Business Intelligence (PGP-BABI). We believe it is our responsibility to give enough time and attention to every candidature even if it means going through hundreds of profiles to select one professional that could benefit from our program. So here is a glimpse into our detailed selection process:

  1. Online Application Form – Interested candidates need to apply by filling up a simple Online Application Form. You will be prompted to create an account or login if you are already registered with us. Before starting the process, it is advisable to have your professional experience and educational background details ready and think in advance about why you would like to learn analytics. It is required that you are completely truthful and as elaborate as possible when filling out your professional and educational background. Once you fill in the details, you will be prompted to answer a simple question about “Why do you want to learn analytics?” to complete your application. The form doesn’t take more than 10 minutes to fill.
  2. Shortlisting and Panel Review – A panel of 2 to 3 faculty members reviews every application in detail to identify candidates suitable for the program. They shortlist based on your profile – which comprises (but is not limited to) your bachelor’s stream, percentage, post qualification work experience, and relevance for analytics. Please make sure that you have checked the eligibility criteria before you apply.
  3. Interview/Screening – The shortlisted candidates then go through a telephonic interview/screening. Since we receive thousands of applications for every single batch and only a few are selected, it becomes increasingly difficult for us to process your information objectively. That’s why we use a set of analytical tools and techniques that help us evaluate your candidature and interview responses.
  4. Offer Stage – After a final faculty review, every candidate is assigned a score that includes interview and faculty score. Candidates with the highest total scores are invited to pursue the program.

Admissions are conducted on a rolling basis and our admission process closes every time we find the requisite number of candidates for a batch. Being the most comprehensive industry-driven program in the country, PGP-BABI has a selection rate of 1 out of 10 applicants and our batches usually fill up way before our closing deadline!

As you can tell, our selection process is thorough but very learner-centric. We carry the load of providing you with the right opportunities, requesting as little as your basic information and 10 minutes of time to get started.

So Join PGP-BABI now for a rewarding career in Business Analytics!
