As the famous Professor W. Edwards Deming said, “In God we trust. All others must bring data.” Data appears to be the only currency that is a medium of exchange between consumers and marketers. Understanding, analyzing, and making appropriate use of data is crucial to the success of any industry. Businesses across the globe witnessed fortune when they analyzed data judiciously. Analyzing data is an art that enables us to draw meaningful information, conclusions, and insights. In a world where data-driven decision-making prevails, all organizations need to have the capability to dig deep into their data to facilitate efficient decision-making. To meet these emergent needs, IIM Amritsar has designed a customized program for the senior management officials of HPCL.
IIM Amritsar has signed an MoU with HPCL this year. As part of this MoU, IIM Amritsar will create customized programs for the employees of HPCL and deliver the program exclusively to them. Working very closely with the business heads of HPCL, we have designed this intensely focused program for the executives involved in data sensemaking. In this series, the first batch of “Executive Program in Data Analytics” from August 21, 2020, to June 19, 2021, was delivered successfully to enable senior managers of HPCL to make sense of the data that is getting generated across various business touchpoints within the organization.
The program has covered modules such as Digital Transformation, Analyzing data using R, Forecasting Techniques, Data Visualization, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Decision Making, Ethics, Privacy & Data Security, and many other emerging areas in the field of data sciences.
Executive programs at IIM Amritsar aim to help organizations to innovate by enabling their business executives to upskill themselves continuously. These programs improve adaptability to the unprecedented changes in the business world.
The program at IIM Amritsar was truly enriching and a big learning experience. I was lucky to be part of this program and look forward to other programs at IIM in near future.
It is a matter a great privilege that I was selected to undergo this exhaustive course “Executive Program in Data analytics” at the prestigious IIM Amritsar. The course material, teaching aids, case studies and “in class” exercises are aligned in line with the present and future market demands. Faculty members are renowned scholars, extremely qualified and knowledgeable. Their ability to clarify doubts and overall methodology of teaching is simply superb and are to my understanding at par with best management institutes in India and perhaps outside India as well. This course is a must for executives dealing in Business analytics, sales and marketing and it trains you for achieving leadership position based on factual data rather than intuition. Thank you so much, IIM Amritsar!
