They will prepare you how to face Data Science job interviews. Along with this, upGrad will also provide mock interviews and mock mcqs tests to check your capability for the interviews.
I’ve spent more than 10yrs working in tech and I felt I needed to upskill myself in the latest technologies. I was looking for something that is rigorous and can help act as a differentiator for me in new projects. That’s how I landed on upGrad - I originally joined their certification course in Data Science, but then upgraded to their Executive course to take advantage of the various options available. I like that I can customize my experience & pick different paths depending on what I like.
