I am a 2014 pass out with a BE-MBA dual degree. From my college days itself I wanted to get into Analytics/Consulting profile but got into a wrong profile after college. As time passed by I started getting more and more frustrated because I wasn't doing the work that I wanted to do. I was keen to break into the world of Analytics with a good consulting firm. I knew that familiarity with SAS, Business Analytics and good knowledge of Statistics were a pre requisite for landing up with a job in any Consulting company. This is when I started to explore about various institutes and was finally able to zero in on Analytix Labs. I enrolled for their SAS+Business Analytics course.
The faculty has leveraged their experience to design a perfect course curriculum. It is very comprehensive and very well structured in a sense that it takes care of your Base SAS skills, Advanced SAS, MS-Excel, Statistics, Descriptive & Predictive Analytics thus giving the students the required knowledge not just to break into the world of Analytics but also excel at it. Another factor that differentiates Alabs is that all the course work is well supported by real life business case studies which further gives more clarity on the type of consulting assignments that students might face in future when they take up their job. Sumeet and Chandra are great mentors and extremely responsive. At Alabs the guidance provided by the mentors is very student specific and not batch specific. The mentors study each student's background and then guide them on how to present their current profile in line with Analytics so that it helps them during interviews. They also counsel each student regarding their career progression and take genuine interest in their career. The rich experience in the field of analytics that the mentors bring with them also adds another dimension of credibility to this course. This training program is not only about conceptual learning but also continuous mentorship and industry relevant discussions which prepares the students really well.
I got 3 job offers from Accenture Consulting, Snapdeal and Knight Frank within one month of completing my course at Alabs. I highly believe that the constant support coupled with the excellent study material and training was responsible for me getting these offers. Another excellent thing about Alabs is that your association with them is not just limited to the duration of the course but goes on forever. I would say this course is a must for professionals looking to learn data analytics, as well as students who are looking to pursue data science as a career.
