I recently joined Shaadi.com as a Data Scientist. I must say, leaving eClerx and giving 1 year of my life to Praxis Business School has not only helped me in enhancing my core analytical skills but also made me competitive in the field of Data Science. Praxis has supported me with several opportunities to perform to my best! Working hard only pays off in the end if you also make the right choices. I did it by working hard with Praxis. Thank you so much!

Saurabh Sharma

I am a Computer Science graduate from Delhi University and during the 3 year graduation programme I got introduced to data science and analytics. But to enter this field I needed to strengthen my base first. Praxis provided me with the platform to not only hone my skills but with the path to enter into the data science world. The course curriculum was designed in such a way that it gave me not just a theoretical approach but a practical one, which could help in solving real life Business problems. The course covers a range of subjects with excellent faculty and industry support. I got placed with LTFS from campus and currently I’m working as a Senior Data Scientist with Valiance Solutions. Praxis definitely has a part to play in helping me deliver business solutions

Chandrakant Bajoria

Investing in this course was the most important decision taken in my entire career. I am an engineer from Jadavpur University with a passion for math – and I was not getting the right direction through online or part-time courses. The full-time program at Praxis helped me build my knowledge and infused confidence in me. Praxis also got me a great start to my career – my first job in analytics at L&T Financial Services from campus. In addition, I built connections with a great set of peers and faculty members, a powerful network which will support me throughout my life. Praxis was the first place where I was taught how to learn and was rewarded for my thinking ability. This motivates me to learn and was rewarded in my success as a Data Scientist at Microsoft.
