“We find that the IT in­dustry is ab­sorb­ing al­most half of all of the ana­lyt­ics jobs. Banking is the second largest, but trails at al­most one fourth of IT’s re­cruit­ing volume.
It is in­ter­est­ing that data rich in­dus­tries like Retail, Energy and Insurance are trail­ing near the bot­tom, lower than even con­struc­tion or me­dia, who handle less data. Perhaps these are ripe for dis­rup­tion through ana­lyt­ics?”

Is learning data analytics beneficial?

The apparent benefit of learning data analytics, and the one most commonly emphasized by students in higher education, is that it is in great demand. Simply put, data analysts are important, and with a potential skills shortage on the horizon as more organizations and sectors begin to engage with big data, their value will only grow. In practice, this implies that graduates with analytical abilities will be able to charge greater wages and get first dibs on open positions. Aside from the financial rewards that a strong demand for data analytics may give graduates, the big data boom has also resulted in a wave of new possibilities for skilled workers. The capacity to think analytically and approach issues in the appropriate manner is a talent that is always important, not just in the professional sphere but also in everyday life, and analytics is all about solving problems.

Are the upGrad certificates useful in the long run?

The UGC has approved to operate and issue undergraduate and postgraduate formal degrees to students who complete upGrad’s online programs. It's not just about the certificate's worth; the learning quality is also excellent. Unlike most online platforms that focus solely on video content, upGrad goes a step further by combining access to comprehensive video content with the opportunity to learn directly from top industry experts, and by allowing students one-on-one interaction time with industry experts, so that all students can make better career decisions.

Is upGrad a free or paid platform?

upGrad offers a number of free courses that you can opt for before you decide to enrol in an actual degree program. Choose from Business Fundamentals, Data Science, Marketing, Machine Learning & Technology, and Technology to build your basic knowledge in only a few hours.
