Group case studies really give a sense of teamwork, as it happens in regular classroom studies. It teaches us coordination and right attitude as a team player in meeting all the deadlines.

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.
