@kdamedhar,

Your background has more relevant experience to shift to analytics domain. If you are looking for any certification program of Business Analytics, I would suggest you to look at some of the certifications aimed towards business executives. ISB, Great Lakes, MISB Bocconi can be good choices depending on where you are based. These courses are aimed towards business executives, give you a good overview of analytics and can help you get a managerial / consultant role.

Although, no course / certification on its own, can ensure that you get a job just because you have undergone that certification. You have to work hard outside the certification also. If the certification required you to complete 1 real life project, you should aim to finish more than 2 before you pass out.

I would strongly suggest to develop a portfolio of projects, you have worked on and share them on GitHub under your profile. Participate in data science competitions like Kaggle / AV Hackathons to gain more experience.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Sunil
