One of Europe's top B-Schools, MISB Bocconi, and Jigsaw Academy, an online analytics school, recently launched an Executive Program in Business Analytics (EPBA) for professionals. The big data analytics programme will be conducted at Bocconi University’s only offshore campus in Powai, Mumbai. 

The long-term programme has been designed for working professionals keen on earning international certification while continuing to work. The programme aims at providing in-depth knowledge with tools and technologies sought after by the industry, including predictive modelling, data mining, big data analytics, marketing, operations and risk analytics. 

Twenty-six students have currently enrolled in the programme, and the first in-person classes started on March 21.

“We have a diverse and experienced batch of students with a clear focus on building and utilising data science skills in their careers," said Sarita Digumarti, COO of Jigsaw Academy in a press statement. "The participants have had a chance to bond with one another and the faculty over three days of contact sessions. The infrastructure and support at the MISB campus are excellent.”

The programme participants will be taught and mentored by international faculty from SDA Bocconi and Bocconi University in Milan as well as analytics experts from Jigsaw Academy in a blended learning model.

The programme involves more than 280 hours of training, including 120 hours of in-person training to be held over six three-day modules at the MISB Bocconi campus in Mumbai. In the interim, Jigsaw Academy will also conduct 20 live online classes of three hours each for a total of 60 hours, which participants can attend from any convenient location. 

In addition to the live online and in-person classes, participants will also have access to over 100 hours of pre-recorded video lectures on data science and big data analytics for 12 months.

Upon completion of the programme the participants will receive certification in business analytics from the SDA Bocconi School of Management.
