“A breakthrough in Machine Learning would be worth ten Microsofts." - Bill Gates
Machine Learning is the construction of algorithms that learn from and respond to large datasets faster and make effective predictions. It instructs computers to find patterns in data without being explicitly programmed and provides ‘high-value predictions that can guide better decisions and smart actions in real time without human intervention’. While the concept of Machine Learning has been around for a long time, the ability to automatically apply complex mathematical calculations to big data – ceaselessly and quickly – is gaining strength only in recent times.
Today, Machine Learning is the #1 skill in-demand globally amongst programmers, with a 3,977% growth since 2015. Today's demand for expertise in Machine Learning far exceeds the supply, and this imbalance will become more severe over the coming decade.

Our program, tailored for busy working professionals like you, makes use of a flexible study format that minimises your time away from work and family, and at the same time, helps you develop the skills needed to speed up your momentum at work.
This flexible 'Blended Learning' format offers the most modern way to learn. It combines online home study (over weekdays) with face-to-face and practical learning (over weekends) to create a convenient, technology-enabled learning experience to students.
From cutting-edge programming languages like Python, R, and Apache Spark to specialist topics like Trees & Networks, Support Vector Machines, Deep Learning, and Hidden Markov -- over a period of 9 months, the program takes you deep into practically every aspect of Machine Learning. And, not simply from a theoretical perspective, but through a practical, real-world approach. In addition to acquiring a focused education surrounding topics in the field, the program enables you to define and streamline your domain expertise, build professional skillsets, network with industry leaders and experts and apply technologies to uncover new market opportunities.
In the last six years of our short but checkered thirteen-year-old history, we have been ranked by three of the world's top four business school rankings -- Forbes, Financial Times and the Economist. In each of these rankings, we are the youngest school featured -- an accomplishment we attribute to our unique and innovative approach to business education that has resulted in higher employment outcomes for our students. Today, our graduates work at some of the world's top companies like McKinsey & Co., Bain & Company, Google, Facebook, Apple, Amazon, the Boston Consulting Group, Unilever, Johnson and Johnson and the World Economic Forum.
- 237 hours of online lessons
- 240 hours of face-to-face lessons over Sundays (including application-based sessions in the Lab)
ONLINE LESSONS: This is the most modern way to learn. Students are given access to a suite of multimedia and interactive learning tools such as blogs, journals, discussion boards, articles and quizzes that help them gain a foundation in Machine Learning, from the convenience of their homes. It is believed that the discipline of online learning enhances learning agility and retention of fundamentals since students learn at a pace that suits them. This section of the program can be completed by the student anytime during the week.
CLASSROOM LEARNING & EXPOSURE: Conducted over weekends and set within the traditional definitions of a classroom, participants are exposed to specialist topics in Machine Learning, discussions and debates with peers (drawn from varied industries and work backgrounds), and interactions with industry experts and leaders who bring with them up-to-the-minute insights and experience of creating Machine Learning applications. These include both world-class professors and practitioners who have predominantly worked in the technology space.
The program kick-starts with an overview of the discipline's most common techniques, tools and application. As you progress in the program, the focus shifts to more specialist topics like Trees and Networks, Support Vector Machines, Deep Learning, Model Selection, Recommendation Systems, Hidden Markov and POMDP Models. Here’s a sampling of the topics that the program will cover:
- The Basic Setup
- Dimensionality Reduction
- Trees and Networks
- Neural Networks
- Support Vector Machines
- Deep Learning
- Model Selection
- Association Rule Learning
- Recommendation Systems
- Network Models
- Ensemble Methods
