The emergence of India as a ‘knowledge hub’ has created a huge opportunity for ‘trained’ people, especially in the field of financial services and marketing research. While the opportunity has exploded, the availability of ‘ready-to-absorb’ people is sourly missing. The 
conventional education system trains a person on ‘theoretical set-up’, with little focus on ‘solution-approach’. Also, the focus is on tools and less on situation analysis, conceiving and developing appropriate models, data preparation (tabulation, cleaning and so on), data analysis and synthesis, and presentation of the results in cogent manner.

Business Analytics is a specialized domain that has been growing at an annual rate of about 30 per cent. Companies incur significant expenditure on business intelligence. Besides the job being challenging, diversified and refreshing, the pay packet is quite attractive. Analytics include complex statistical analysis, computational modeling and data mining. The domain encompasses enterprise decision management, predictive science, strategy science, fraud analytics, credit risk analysis, marketing analytics, and so on.

With the growing popularity of Business Intelligence (BI) tools, the business significance of analytics is gaining greater acceptance in industry. Portfolio analysis is a common application of business analytics. Business analytics covers both technical and business domains. Business metrics definition and delivery, business drivers, performance management, data visualisation, and so on, fall within the purview of business analytics. Scorecards, OLAP, dashboards, technologies and solutions, too, fall in this domain.

The Advanced Programme attempts to address the above issues through the following.
Selection of candidates with adequate basic understanding of maths and statistics
