IIM Ahmedabad is planning to offer the Post Graduate Programme in Advanced Business Analytics (PGP-ABA), a 16-month post graduate diploma from the next academic year. The programme delivery will take place through a mix of online and on-campus sessions. PGP-ABA is designed to give working professionals in-depth exposure to the analytics tools and techniques, and prepare them to solve business problems. The programme, therefore, provides a framework for transforming data into insights that are coupled into an effective business decision-making process. In a nutshell, the programme will focus on building blended expertise in data “literacy”, data processing and business acumen.
