A very common question amongst the engineering youth that we often receive in our forum/ comments is, whether to do an MTech/MS or an MBA. It is a tough choice because to be at senior positions, management skills and soft skills are vital, and engineers often lack the same. Due to their quench to learn advanced technical skills aka skills of the future there only happens to be the option of Masters in Tech or Science. There is no segway between the two. At least not until this new university in Gurugram, called Masters’ Union School of Business started a course amalgamating both technology and business in its PGP in tech and business management course, in which they have created a sweet combination of advanced tech with management and soft skills.
With the lines very quickly blurring between technology and business and more and more businesses adapting to newer technology, the youth also needs to catch up. As part of this PGP-TBM course at Masters’ Union, students have the independence to choose from 5 dynamic industry specialisations one of which is Advanced data analytics. With data practically increasing its empire every passing second and having significant influence over businesses, it has become instrumental to the growth of businesses. Advanced data analytics along with Machine Learning helps businesses analyse their past performances, make intelligent guesses for the future and optimise their products accordingly to perform much better. Every business is incorporating data science teams to perform better.
In Masters’ Union’s Advanced Data Analytics specialisation, they have very skillfully curated the curriculum with the courses being: Learning Data Analytics Languages and Visualizations, Machine Learning for Business, Advanced Machine Learning for Business, Capstone Project on Advanced Data Analytics for Business. With all this, they are also including what engineers especially software nerds were always craving for - Bootcamps. Indian engineers have often had the knack to go to foreign universities to study sciences and one of the major attractions has been bootcamps. Bootcamps are a vital element that help anybody gain tremendous technical expertise in a short span and are thrilling to say the least. Another special aspect of this curriculum is that it is taught by industry leaders who have been practising data science for the better part of their careers and hence they bring practical learning optimised for businesses to the table and not just the skill.
The majority of upcoming careers and job requirements lie in the data science field. Its demand has only been growing, that too at an unprecedented level. So the scope for a management student with the knowledge of data should be unparalleled. Combining vital business knowledge with trending technical skills will only skyrocket one’s career in the future. Do check out Masters’ Union’s website to know more about their PGP- TBM course.
