Which programmes are covered in these rankings?

As part of these rankings, we are covering only long duration courses (more than 9 months). We are not covering short term certification courses here. Those will be done in a separate article shortly. Also, we have excluded MOOCs from the rankings as they would form a different consideration.

So, here are the rankings:

1. Certified Program in Business Analytics (CBA) – Indian School of Business: .

The offering from Indian School of Business (ISB) keeps on holding the best spot in this year rankings also. The course covers a few points and is keep running in an organization where the understudies need to go to classrooms each substitute month. The course utilizes innovation supported stage amid the times of no classroom. There is plentiful industry communication and a 3 – 6 month extend toward the finish of the course. With the ISB brand and tie-up with SAS, the course gives practically everything a man would have longed for!

We say nearly on the grounds that the main thing which conflicts with the course is impressively higher expenses contrasted with different courses. Add the cost of making a trip to Hyderabad each substitute month and you may wind up reconsidering, regardless of the possibility that you get chosen for the program.

2. PGPBA – Great Lakes Institute of Management, Chennai and Gurgaon

Extraordinary Lakes touched base with its examination program somewhat late into the amusement, yet when it came – it came in style! It comes nearest to challenge ISB with its emphasis on organized considering and business application. The configuration is again a blend of classroom and tech helped stage. Noteworthy industry communication, tie-up with SQTL Academy to convey online substance and alternative to look over 2 goal are a portion of the reasons why this course makes it to this spot.

Our discontent with this course is for the most part the absence of concentrate on a specific instrument. While apparatus is just an unfortunate obligation, profundity on no less than one instrument would make the offering extremely convincing. You can read point by point survey about the program here.
