Frequently Asked Questions

The Executive PG Programme in Data Science is an engaging yet rigorous 12-month online program designed specifically for working professionals to develop practical knowledge and skills, establish a professional network, and accelerate entry into data science careers. The certification is awarded by IIIT Bangalore.

Expect to carry out several industry-relevant projects simulated as per the actual workplace, making you a skilled data science professional at par with leading industry standards.

The programme is NOT going to be easy. It will be requiring at least 12-15 hours of time commitment per week, applying new concepts and executing industry relevant projects.

 

The programme is designed for working professionals looking for a transition or growth into the data domain. Considering the requirements of different data roles in the industry, the curriculum is divided into six tracks. The course will have a common curriculum running for approximately for the first 5-6 months that everyone will go through after which they have to do any of the 6 specialization and a capstone project, in the remaining 6-7 months. The topics that are going to be covered as a part of the common curriculum and each of the six specializations are as follows:

Common Curriculum: Basics of SQL, Python, Statistics and EDA, Basic Machine Learning Models

Deep Learning Specialization: Advanced Machine Learning, Neural Networks

Business Intelligence: Advanced SQL and NoSQL Databases, Storytelling with Advanced Visualization

Data Engineering: Data Modelling and Data Warehousing, Building Data Pipelines, Data Streaming and Processing

 

The content will be a mix of interactive lectures from industry leaders as well as world-renowned faculty. Additionally, the program comprises live lectures or hangout sessions dedicated to solving your academic queries and reinforcing learning. 
 

Post successful completion of the program, a certificate in Executive PG Program in Data Science would be granted from IIIT Bangalore.

 

The programme has ~23 weeks of common curriculum and ~29 weeks of the specialization and capstone project. Once you’re through the 23 weeks of curriculum common to all the three tracks, you will be prompted to choose your specialization.

When you’re nearing the end of your common curriculum, upGrad will provide you with a recommendation best suited for you based on your background. The following mapping should give you an idea about the specialization best suited for you although the final upGrad recommendation would come from a much more exhaustive rule engine.

- Deep Learning: Engineers, Software and IT Professionals

- Business Intelligence/ Data Analytics: Engineers, Marketing and Sales Professionals, Freshers

- Data Engineering: Software and IT Professionals

No. You can choose whatever specialization you like once you are through the common curriculum. However, we would urge you to take up the recommendation provided by us as this based on a sophisticated rule engine and is meant to give you the best outcome for your background which will, in turn, make it easier for you to switch to a data role.

At least 12-15 hours per week of time commitment is expected to be able to graduate from the program.
 

Each of the six specializations will have a common ~23-week curriculum in which the time commitment will be exactly the same.When you move onto a specialization, it might be that some weeks are heavier in a particular track but lighter for the others. But, overall the total time commitment required will be 12-15 hours/week on average.

Preparatory Support: Mentoring on how to make the best resume for a data professional, highlighting technical and domain expertise. Data Science interview preparation and interview mentoring by industry experts.

 

The applicants will have to take a selection test designed to check their mathematical and programming abilities. The applicants can skip the test if they meet the following criteria:

 

Minimum 1 year of work experience in a technical domain or a degree in mathematics or Statistics with programming experience.

Peer-to-peer discussion forum where you can post your queries and your peers/faculty/teaching assistants answer your queries within a day. Regular Q&A sessions with faculty to get clarification on conceptual doubts.

Each specialization is designed to give you the best outcome based on your background and help you industry experts in the data domain. The services and support for all the tracks will remain the same. Every student will have live sessions, industry mentorship and preparatory support according to the requirements in their specialization track.

Refund Policy: (Programs with/without prep-session component)
 

  • The student must pay applicable caution money for the enrollment of the course. This will be adjustable against the total course fee payable by the student.
  • You can claim a refund for the amount paid towards the Program at any time, before the Program Start Date, by visiting www.upgrad.com and submitting your refund form via the "My Application" section under your profile. You can request your Admissions Counsellor  to help you in applying and withdrawing for a refund by sending them an email with reasons listed. There shall be no refund applicable once the program has started. This is applicable even for those students who could not complete their payment, and could not be enrolled in the batch opted for. However, the student can avail pre-deferral as per the policy defined below for the same.
  • Refund shall be processed to an eligible student within 30 working days from the date of receipt of refund form subject to the submission of the right documents from him/her in this regard.
  • Refund shall be subject to deduction of $150 processing charges and as per the conversion rate applicable.

Deferral Policy: (Post Program Commencement)
 

  • If a student is facing severe issues in dedicating time to the course, we provide the opportunity for the student to defer to another batch. This deferral will be subjected to a 10% deferral fee of the total course amount + taxes if any along with the differential program fees between the two cohorts.
  • This deferral request shall be granted only once and to either of the scheduled cohorts to start in the next 1 year from the start date of the initial batch in which the student was originally enrolled.
  • The deferral request will be approved once the deferral fee is paid. Until the process is completed, the student will be assumed to be continuing in the same cohort.
  • The student has 7 days (including holidays and weekends) from the date of deferral request to make the payment of the deferral fee post which the deferral request shall be deemed as expired, and the student shall continue as part of the current cohort.
  • If the student completes the deferral payment, the student’s login will be disabled, the student will leave the deferred cohort and the student will start learning on the new cohort from the point of the last assignment that was graded in the deferred cohort. All grades and progress till that point will be carried forward as it is to the new cohort. For clarification, the grades of the graded assignments will be carried forward, whether or not the student had submitted these grading during the initial stage.
  • The deferral can only be requested during the batch for which the student has enrolled is ongoing. Once the batch has completed, deferral requests shall not be entertained. For clarification, the batch completion here shall mean the “last grace deadline” as communicated by upGrad.

Deferral Policy: (Pre- Program Commencement)
 

  • If a student, due to unavoidable circumstances is unable to commence with the cohort and requests for a deferral before the cohort starts, we provide the opportunity for the student to defer to another batch.
  • However, the student will be required to pay 50% of the total course fee amount (inclusive of taxes) before the deferral can be approved. Till this is completed, the student will be assumed to be continuing in the same cohort.
  • A student can request for deferral only once and to either of the scheduled cohorts to start in the next 1 year from the start date of the initial batch in which the student was originally enrolled.
  • The student shall have time till the current cohort launch date to make the payment of the 50% program fee, post which the deferral request will expire. In the event the student raises a refund request after the deferral window expires, the above-mentioned applicable refund policy shall apply.
  • The fee applicable to the deferred student will be as per prevailing fee for the batch student has opted to defer to (No additional deferral fee is required to be paid). The student shall be liable to pay the differential program fees between the two cohorts if any.

If you like finding meaningful insights from data and if you get excited by the prospect of informing business decisions through analysis and have an analytical bend of mind, then this program is meant for you. As long as you are able to clear the selection test (or are exempt) and are excited about the transition to Data Science, this program is meant for you.

Absolutely! Data Science is becoming a necessity for all industries and is no more a choice. Hence, there is a critical demand for quality data professionals and because the supply is constrained, this is one of the most lucrative career options across industries.​

You can start the application process by submitting the application. Applications have already started for the next cohort.

upGrad, IIITB, world-renowned faculty, and many industry leaders have committed a lot of time in conceptualising and creating this program to make sure that the learners can receive the best possible learning experience in data analytics. Hence, we want to make sure that the participants of this program also show a very high level of commitment and passion for Data Science.

 

The applicants will have to take a selection test designed to check their aptitude and quantitative abilities. The applicants can skip the test if they meet one of the following criteria:

  • GRE score is greater than 300
  • GMAT score is greater than 650
  • CAT score is greater than 90 percentile
  • GATE score is greater than 500
