  • I was first attracted to REVA University by two things: Firstly, its world-class Analytics LAB, equipped with IBM tools (Cognos, TM1, Infosights, SPSS, IBM Modeller and Watson) and open source tools like R and Python; secondly, by industry practitioners as a trainers. I was interested in Business Analytics for some time but knew very little about it, so every module was a new learning experience. I think the dissertation was the best part as I liked dissecting the topics with arguments and ideas, analyzing and figuring out how it all fits together and developing my views on the issues. Even though it was challenging, overall it was extremely fulfilling and rewarding! Coming from Telecom background, we deal with a lot of data but I didn't realize the value of the data. During this program, my perspective of seeing data/business problem got changed. Now I am working on two projects both are initiated by me in my organization. I realized that REVA was the best option for exploring and learning analytics.
