Which institute provides training(or diploma or PG) in business analytics for someone from commerce background


#1

Hi,
One of my cousin , who recently completed his graduation in commerce background (BCom) , wants to change his field and move into analytics.
He is pretty good in mathematics and statistics , and he loves to play with numbers.
However , given the fact that he is from commerce background , he has absolutely no idea about any sort of programming.
Are there any institutes in India , which provide PG or diploma in Business Analytics for someone from commerce background and no working experience.?

I think that given his background, he should look at courses / career options based in Financial analytics. Enjoying play with numbers is one thing and spending days slicing and dicing data is another. He can go for a CFA and might find a better fit there.

While there might be institutes who would not restrict a person from Commerce background, it will be hard to get them placed at a later point. Of course, nothing is impossible, but the chances to get in pure play analytics are rare for a Commerce grad with no experience only on the basis of a course / training.
