Is Data Science The New age MBA

Gone are the days when an MBA degree was your ticket to the corporate world.

Basic knowledge of marketing, HR, finance, macro and micro economic models, logistics and supply chain management, analysing a simple data set and reading case studies did guarantee you a job earlier! The ability to present this limited data set in the form of attractive power point presentations mostly acted as the “cherry on the cake”.

So what has changed in the present scenario? Nothing and everything! We are in an era where data is the new oil of digital economy.

Today’s world requires deep domain expertise integrated with soft skills.

The digital era, with an overflow of data, requires a professional who can collect and organise the data in a meaningful structure, analyse it through smart algorithms and arrive at a business/ social solution.
