The Master's degree is an engaging yet rigorous 18-month online program designed specifically for working professionals to develop practical knowledge and skills, establish a professional network, and accelerate entry into data science careers. The certification is awarded by LJMU.
The program is NOT going to be easy. It will be requiring at least 15 hours of time commitment per week, applying new concepts and executing industry relevant projects.
The program is designed for working professionals looking for a transition or growth into the data domain. Considering the requirements of different data roles in the industry, the curriculum is divided into five tracks. These five tracks will have a common curriculum running for approximately 5-6 months that everyone will go through after which they have to do one specialization course and a capstone project in the remaining 6-7 months. The topics that are going to be covered as a part of the common curriculum and each of the five specializations are as follows:
Common Curriculum: Basics of SQL, Python, Statistics and EDA, Basic Machine Learning Models
Deep Learning Specialization: Advanced Machine Learning, Neural Networks
Natural Language Processing Specialization: Advanced Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing
Business Analytics: Advanced Machine Learning, Storytelling and Advanced Business Problem Solving
Business Intelligence/Data Analytics: Advanced SQL and NoSQL Databases, Storytelling with Advanced Visualization
Data Engineering: Data Modelling and Data Warehousing, Building Data Pipelines, Data Streaming and Processing
Post successful completion of the program, a certificate in Executive PG Programme in Data Science would be granted from IIIT Bangalore and a Master's degree from LJMU.
The program has 22 weeks of common curriculum and 22 weeks of the specialization and capstone project. Once you’re through the 21 weeks of curriculum common to all the five tracks, you will be prompted to choose your specialisation.
When you’re nearing the end of your common curriculum, upGrad will provide you with a recommendation best suited for you based on your background. The following mapping should give you an idea about the specialisation best suited for you although the final upGrad recommendation would come from a much more exhaustive rule engine.
Deep Learning: Engineers, Software and IT Professionals
Natural Language Processing: Engineers, Software and IT Professionals
Business Intelligence/ Data Analytics: Engineers, Marketing and Sales Professionals, Freshers
Business Analytics: Engineers, Managers, Marketing and Sales Professionals, Domain Expert
Data Engineering: Software and IT Professionals
No. You can choose whatever specialisation you like once you are through the common curriculum. However, we would urge you to take up the recommendation provided by us as this based on a sophisticated rule engine and is meant to give you the best outcome for your background which will, in turn, make it easier for you to switch to a data role.
At least 15 hours per week of time commitment is expected to be able to graduate from the program.
Each of the five specializations will have a common 22-week curriculum in which the time commitment will be exactly the same.
When you move onto a specialization, it might be that some weeks are heavier in a particular track but lighter for the others. But, overall the total time commitment required will be 15 hours/week on average
Peer-to-peer discussion forum where you can post your queries and your peers/faculty/teaching assistants answer your queries within a day. Regular Q&A sessions with faculty to get clarification on conceptual doubts.
Each specialization is designed to give you the best outcome based on your background and help you venture into the data domain. The services and support for all the tracks will remain the same. Every student will have live sessions, industry mentorship, preparatory support, and access to relevant opportunities according to the requirements in their specialization track.
0% EMI with Finance partners /Credit card option availability will vary program wise.

No cost EMI is available on credit cards from all major banks (American Express, Bank of Baroda, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, IndusInd Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank, RBL Bank, Standard Chartered, Axis Bank, Yes Bank, State Bank of India, CITIBANK and HSBC).
2. Is there any minimum transaction limit ?
Yes. 50000 is the minimum.
3. Standard Chartered Bank offers 18 or 24 months No Cost EMI ?
No. ONLY 12 months is available irrespective of the Program enrolled.
4. Will I have to pay any extra amount for EMI transaction?
If you are availing 0% credit card EMI, upGrad will not charge any processing fees or down payment for these transactions. Your bank may levy GST or other taxes on the interest component of the EMI.
5. Are there any fees or down payment?
Certain banks charge nominal processing fees between INR 99 - 500 on 0% Credit Card EMI transaction. If charged, will be billed in the first repayment installment.
6. Can I use my International credit card for 0% credit EMI or Credit Card EMI?
Only the Indian bank credit cards can be used. But you can pay the amount using the Credit card option in one shot / part payments, and later you can convert into EMI from your respective bank. The tenures and interest charged will depend on your bank. upGrad will not charge any processing fees or down payment for these transactions, this will be purely between you and your bank.
7. Are there any charges in case I opt for cancellation/refund from the course after paying balance with no cost EMI ?
Yes, there will be additional charges to the extent of interest paid by the upGrad to the bank, you will be refunded only Principal amount, i.e. the amount actually deducted/blocked from your card. This deduction will be in addition to the amount mentioned in the refund policy shared with your offer letter.
8. Can I Pay Using Multiple Credit Cards ?
Multiple cards can be used to complete the payments using Part payment option make sure to inform the learner, minimum transaction is INR 50000 to opt for 0% CC EMI E.g. Amount to be paid: 150000. I can pay using 2 Credit cards. Yes, Example :
HDFC Card – Part payment – INR 100000
ICICI Card – Part payment – INR 50000
9. How can I opt for Credit card EMI if my bank is not listed in the 0% Credit card EMI or Credit card EMI?
You can pay the amount using the Credit card option in one shot / part payments, and later you can convert into EMI from your respective bank. The tenures and interest charged will depend on your bank. upGrad will not charge any processing fees or down payment for these transactions.
10. Why is the entire amount blocked on my credit card?
Initially your bank will block the entire amount from your available purchase limit and from your next billing cycle, you will be charged the EMI amount. As you start paying your EMI, your credit limit will be released accordingly. For example, if you have made a payment of ₹100000 on 6-months EMI and your credit limit is ₹200,000 then initially your bank will block your credit limit by ₹100000. After payment of your first month EMI of Rs.15000, the blocked amount will come down to ₹85000.
11. Why is interest getting charged on No Cost EMI?
Your bank will charge you interest. However, this interest charge has been provided to you as an upfront discount at the time of your payment, effectively giving you the benefit of a No cost EMI. The total amount paid during the entire EMI tenure to the bank will be equal to the amount to be paid to upGrad.
Eg. Amount payable to upGrad: INR 405000
Let's say Amount deducted at the time of transaction: INR 379850 (Principal amount) Bank charges interest of 12-15% per annum on INR 379850
[Note: Interest factor is reducing rate and not Flat rate]
EMI AMOUNT = INR 33750 x 12 = INR 405000
Effectively, you have taken loan on 379,850 instead of 405,000
