Course Introduction

MDAE’s one-year PGP in Data Science Diploma will provide you with the foundation you need to become a data scientist. Special emphasis is placed on Finance & Financial Technologies in this diploma program.

The rigorous and technical nature of the course also enables you to strengthen your foundations for higher education.

We teach using a hands-on approach, incorporating case studies and real-world situations. Each course and topic are designed to prepare you for the actual problems you will solve during your career.

Due to MDAE’s self-governed curriculum, we can integrate new skills, areas, and learning tools quickly & seamlessly, considering rapid industry developments and changes.

In a short period, MDAE’s course has become an ideal platform to help students get into the industry and leverage the academy’s growing stature and industry network.

This is the only PGP program in the country that integrates Finance, Data Science, and Technology. We believe that both technical skills and domain knowledge are essential for data scientists given that the financial services and fintech industries are the largest consumers of data scientists. 

Your knowledge of critical data science, finance, and technology skills will include:

  • Statistical Analysis
  • Programming, data management & Visualisation tools such as – Python, SQL, Tableau, Power BI
  • Machine learning
  • Domain knowledge of finance – Corporate finance, Financial Statements, Quant Finance
  • New age technologies- Fintech, Blockchain & Cryptocurrency, et.

A 9-month classroom-based training course is followed by a three-month internship. The course allows you to apply some of the principles you’ve learned to real-world problems.

The program commences with a rigorous foundation course in Mathematics and Statistics. The pedagogy focuses on teaching the basics of data science, including combinatorics, calculus, linear algebra, and statistics. This course will prepare you to learn the principles and techniques of data analysis and machine learning learned in subsequent courses.

Continuous assessment patterns emphasize developing students’ problem-solving, algorithmic thinking, programming, data analysis, visualization, and machine-learning skills.

The course provides a healthy exposure to various tools such as Microsoft Excel, IDLE/Jupyter Notebook/PyCharm for Python programming MySQL, Power BI, and Tableau.

Alumni Testimonials

Yash Beswala – 2021 Data Science Batch, Equity Researcher at JP Morgan:

MDAE has helped me bridge the gap between my undergrad in BBA and the quant intensive course which I want to take up in the future. It has helped me develop strong quantitative and programming skills from basic, which is not generally offered as a post-graduate course in the country. Overall, I think that this course has motivated me to dive further into the world of Fintech and has cleared my misconception of programming in the world of Finance.

Who is this course for?

The course is best suited for students as well as young working professionals who are looking at achieving the following outcomes –

  1. Get your first job or transition from your current one – work as a market economist, financial analyst, banker, data scientist, management consultant or research professional.
  2. Get ready for further education – Build the essential quantitative, critical thinking and analytics skills which are unfortunately not focused upon in several undergraduate programs in India but are a pre-requisite for Masters/MBA courses in India and abroad.
  3. Challenge yourself – Get out of the habit of learning by rote and start applying sophisticated tools & techniques to solve real problems.
Not From Data Science Background?

You can apply for the PGP in Data Science Diploma even if you do not have a science degree. You do however need to demonstrate a certain degree of proficiency in Mathematics & Statistics to be able to cope with the rigour of the course. We have admitted students from disciplines such as commerce, physics, management, psychology, mass media, engineering, chemistry, and other diverse fields into our Data Science Diploma. Graduates of our Data Science course compete confidently with science and engineering graduates in Data Science jobs.

Why should I pursue a full-time course in data analytics
  1. Part time course is suitable for people who are already working as Analysts. To build a career as a Data Scientist requires rigorous training. Full time commitment is therefore necessary for a non-specialist to gain a deeper understanding of the concepts.
  2. Part-time courses only teach you how to apply the tools; MDAE’s full-time rigorous course will teach you how to create your own models and deep learning software. You will learn the building blocks of machine learning which is an integral part of artificial intelligence.
  3. Part-time course does nothing for your network or peer learning. A full time course increases your network with specialists in the field – faculty, corporate mentors, and your peers. About 30% of learning happens through your peers in the classroom
  4. You learn lifelong skills – presentation, public speaking, debating, communication skills – all of which are critical for corporate success. A part time course does not emphasize these skills.
How is this course is different from other Data Science course.
  1. This is the first diploma program in India which lies at the intersection of Data Analytics and Finance (1/3 of the course is finance). So, students with the regular Data science curriculum also learn the domain knowledge of Finance which help them understand real world problems and prepares them to take leadership positions. It eventually helps your growth in competitive jobs. You will be better equipped to work in the financial sector which contributed more than 60% of all jobs in the analytics sector.
  2. We believe in teaching you “How to think and Not what to think!” In comparison to most programs that train students how to use data-science tools, our program teaches students how to build these tools. That is, you learn how to build the car rather than just learn how to drive it.
  3. Students gain access to top companies – through MDAE’s deep linkages with the corporates and alumni network
  4. Students get to learn from the leaders in Data Science industry and academicians at the cutting edge of their field. This helps the students to learn effectively what is required in the course.
Does this qualify as the 16th year for foreign universities?

Yes this qualifies as a 16th year of education. Our alumni, over the past 5 years, have a strong track record of securing admissions into leading foreign universities for Masters, MBA and even Ph. D programs. Universities such as Harvard, Georgetown, Chicago, Rotman, Boston, Georgia State, George Washington, Oxford, LSE, and many more have recognized and admitted alumni from MDAE.

Who should I contact if I have queries regarding my application status?

You can write to us at info@meghnaddesaiacademy.org or call us on 7045999326.

Does MDAE assist in Accommodation

MDAE assists students to take up private accommodations in the vicinity. We provide you with a verified list of brokers who then will assist the student in finding the accommodation.

Can I be exempted from the entrance test?

You can be exempted from giving the test if you have – 600+ in GMAT, 90 percentile and above in CAT.
