Indian Institute of Management Calcutta

The Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIMC) was established as the first national institute for Postgraduate studies and Research in Management by the Government of India in November 1961, in collaboration with Alfred P. Sloan School of Management (MIT), the Government of West Bengal, The Ford Foundation and Indian industry. During its initial years, several prominent faculty formed part of its nucleus, including Paul Samuelson, Jagdish Sheth, J. K. Sengupta, among others. Over the years, IIMC has grown into a mature institution with global reputation, imparting high quality management education. It has been playing a pioneering role in professionalising Indian management through its Postgraduate and Doctoral Level Programs, Executive Training Programs, Research and Consulting Activities.

Today, the institute serves as an autonomous body, continuously evolving to meet its goals in an ever-changing business environment.

The vision of the Institute is to emerge as an International Centre of Excellence in all facets of Management Education, rooted in Indian ethos and societal values. Over the past four decades, IIM Calcutta has blossomed into one of Asia’s Best Business Schools. Its strong ties to the business community make it an effective mechanism for the promotion of professional management practices in Indian organizations.

Today, IIM Calcutta attracts the best talent in India – a melting pot of academia, industry and research. The best and brightest young men and women pursue its academic programmes.

The main thrust of the training is to imbibe a sense of strategic outlook to management problems in the students. The emphasis, therefore, is on management as an integrated process and requires the students to develop a global view of economic, technological, cultural and political environment of the business.


Organisations are unable to locate skilled data scientists to develop and manage their data science programmes, despite their desire to employ data science in their decision-making process. As a result, firms are looking for data-driven decision makers now more than ever. Fortunately, this IIMC will equip you with a data science certification in Dubai that gives you the necessary abilities to become one, all while helping you construct a professional portfolio.

The Advanced IIMC Certification Dubai is meant for data scientists who desire to develop their abilities in preparation for a career change or a post-graduate-level data science programme. This is a six-month intensive course that covers a variety of disciplines, such as mathematical statistics, database management, machine learning, advanced analytics, and more. The curriculum is industry-relevant and will prepare you for advanced opportunities in your profession. It will help you stand out in a crowded job market that is highly focused on data analysis and management besides statistical modelling.

Why the Data Science professional courses with certificates from IIM?

What’s the difference between a business with some fascinating data and one that is truly analytics-driven? There is a need for professionals who not only know how to design descriptive and predictive models, but also how to get outcomes. An intensive certification in data analytics helps you gather the required expertise, and apply next generation analytical methods to deliver practical analytics. Our certification prepares you to make a greater impact wherever you intend to work.


Companies are frantically looking for data scientists with substance – and quantitative methodologies can only take you so far. What you do need is a pedagogy that will help you expand beyond your horizons and position you better to achieve your career goals. We teach you to apply specialised techniques to a business problem in order to achieve the desired results. The best certification courses for data science are offered by IIMC.


Everything from marketing campaigns to recruiting is now guided by analytics, and more changes are on the way. Machine learning, natural language processing, and other forms of artificial intelligence rely on big data to power an ever-growing number of applications. However, extracting the strategic value of this data necessitates a thorough understanding of data management concepts, advanced analytical methods, and corporate goals.

Experts with a certification in data analytics and a strong expertise in business basics can distil a complex mass of data into actionable insights. Learning to place data within a certain context, aids in reducing noise and organising data.


There are multiple ways in which analytics projects could fail miserably. Projects can backfire if professionals overlook a crucial aspect during execution, fail to adapt to changing conditions, or miss out considering the privacy concerns and emotions of their target audience.

Companies must engage specialists with the technical expertise and commercial judgement to anticipate issues and make adjustments to avoid these blunders. When decision-makers combine deep understanding of the technical side of analytics with thorough knowledge of best practises and regulations, they are better able to avoid analytics-driven disasters. A Data Science IIM certification course Dubai readies professionals to operationalise analytics, streamline processes and proactively address errors and anomalies before they turn disastrous.


Organisations that deconstruct data management and organisational decision-making miss out on growth potential. As a result, businesses require someone who can link robust quantitative methodologies with an intelligent commercial strategy. A business analytics course in Dubai with IIMC equips professionals with the specialised knowledge and hands-on skills they need to progress their careers, flourish in leadership roles, and make a difference in their organisations. Our comprehensive curriculum helps learners develop proficiency in the full range of avant-garde business analytics techniques and large-scale data management.
