I am working as Derivative Trader in US markets (from india) for 3 years. I am very much interested in Analytics and I have done Base SAS certification. I have also learnt Basic statistics(correlation, f test, Chi-square test, multiple linear regression). I am also learning R from coursera, udacity.
I am applying for almost all analytics profile(0-3 yrs). But I am not getting any positive response from the industry. Now, I looking for full time course to start my career in this field. I came across two colleges IIMC(integrated, 2 yrs) and praxis. I am not looking for part-time courses because of my strict 12 hour job+CAT preparation and I know, I am not going to survive in my current profession for more then 3 months.
My questions are:
1 Is this the only way to start my career or switching job is possible?
2 Since IIMC has only 60 seats, I would like to know about praxis placements.
3 Is there any better option then these colleges?
4 What should be the CAT score to target these colleges?
Additional Info: B-Tech(Civil Engg) IIT BHU.
Any expert advice would be very helpful.
PS: Sorry for bad english.
