XLRI Announces Admission to e-MDP Course in Data Science Using R & Excel for Working Executives

XLRI- Xavier School of Management, one of India’s premier B-Schools in technical collaboration with Talentedge, one of India’s leading online interactive education companies launches an online certificate Executive Programme in Data Science Using Excel and R for professionals who are employed into Project Management and Business and Data Analytics domain.

The registration to the course is open till till 30th March, 2016. Applicants can register online through the link: or .
This Specialized e-MDP (Management Development Programme) Course has been carefully designed for working professionals with a minimum of 4 years of work experience with the objective to introduce the participants to the world of data science and provide them with an in-depth understanding of the techniques. The purpose of this course is to strip away all the distractions around data science – codes, tools, etc., and teach the techniques using practical cases that can be understood and appreciated by someone with an elementary knowledge of mathematics.

Speaking about the program, Prof. Soumyakanti Chakraborty, Faculty, Information Systems Area at XLRI- Xavier School of Management said, “Today every business is trying to engage with data science in one from or another. Unfortunately, very few businesses have been able to even grasp the idea of what constitutes data science, let alone a useful or profitable implementation of the same. To preside over a successful implementation of data science in the organization the managers must have a good understanding of the basics, and it is quite impossible to get a feel of data science without getting one’s hands dirty. This course is an entirely hands-on approach to data science where participants would be working with data sets to generate insights for businesses. The tools that we will use are Excel and R.”.

The course module spread across 16 -17 weeks (4 months) will be held through LIVE lectures by XLRI faculty that will be beamed online via internet to student desktops/laptops or classrooms using Talentedge’s Direct To Device platform. Beside lectures, case studies, interactive sessions, project work and class exercises, students would also get hands-on exposure to immediately apply their learning in the workplace. Additionally, participants opting for Certificate of Completion will be assigned project work and an end course assessment that will be evaluated by the Faculty in addition to providing feedback.

Mr. Aditya Malik, CEO & MD Talentedge said, “We are elated to present the e-MDP course  in Data Science Using R & Excel by combining our technological prowess with XLRIs expertise. Participants will learn the pertinent aspects of Data Science Using R & Excel  from world class faculty via our direct-to-device technology with real-time interactive and participative virtual classroom sessions.Talentedge’s technology would enable the learners to attend the program from any location, as long as they are connected online."

Participants of this programme would be provided the flexibility of choosing the type of certification they want to pursue. The programmes fee for candidates opting for Certificate of Completion is Rs. 70,000+ Tax and Rs. 65,000+ Tax for candidates opting for Participation Certificate, payable over 2 easy installments.
