Tell us about your professional background.
I completed my Btech in 2011 and then joined TCS as an IT engineer in 2012. I was working with TCS until I joined Great Learning for the PGP Data Science and Business Analytics Course.
Why Great Learning?
I chose to upskill because the industry was going through a transformation phase from IT to AI. I wanted to be at par with the changing industry. Compared to any other courses offered by other institutes, the classroom coaching offered by Great Learning was a key point for me to join this course. It was very convenient for me to take up this course considering my work timings and place of residence.

Did Great Learning help in your career transition?
Absolutely. In April 2019, I joined Ericsson as a Data Scientist. I am thankful to GL for helping me achieve this goal.
What did you like the most about the PGP- DSBA course?
The classroom coaching design, faculty, and the study material provided. This course is structured so beautifully that with just a little effort, it can be taken up along with pursuing a job. I could upskill myself along with my work and that is the main USP of this course. There was a lot of interaction amongst the learners and the mentors, and that helped in creating a competitive yet very comfortable environment.
Any advice for future DSBA aspirants?
My expectation from the course was to learn well, and that was fulfilled. I had not expected a job change or a domain change when I joined this course. However, this transition happened and I am very happy with that. I would certainly ask them to take this course.0
