90 percent of data in the world today has been created in the last 2 years alone. Some estimate that data production will be 44 times greater in 2020 than it was a few years ago. Others estimate that approximately 2.5 quintillion bytes of data is being generated every day. Global demand for data science and computing expertise exceeds supply, with predictions of a major shortage of analysts for at least the next 10 years. For graduates in Data Science, this presents a high potential employment opportunity.

SP Jain’s Bachelor of Data Science (BDS) is a 3-year course designed to prepare graduates who can conduct data-driven investigations, and conduct visual and advanced analytics by acquiring and managing data of all types. Through this course, graduates will develop an in-depth understanding of data science and the techniques for analysis of quantitative and qualitative data to arrive at solutions. They will be able to identify patterns, predict trends and analyse data from sectors such as manufacturing, banking and finance, retail, and healthcare.

The BDS program is currently offered at our campuses in Mumbai and Sydney. Students can opt to spend the first year in Mumbai, and years 2 and 3 in Sydney, or spend all three years of the program in Sydney.

*Although the BDS is a 3-year program, students joining the January intake can complete the program in 2.5 years by undertaking Semesters 1, 2 and 3 in Year 1.

In an increasingly digital world, Data plays a very important role in driving decisions, innovation, and productivity in large multinationals, non-profits, and governments. It is being used to analyse social media trends to formulate election strategy, evaluate meteorological data to predict the weather or even to analyse retail data to drive more sales.

SP Jain’s new undergraduate program in Data Science enables students to develop a thorough understanding of Data Analysis, rapidly adapt to the changing role of Information Sciences and bring in creative solutions to tackle the challenges that arise in modern business.

There is real value that can be extracted from analysing data and on graduating from this program, you will be able to help organisations:

  • Develop better strategies, improve operational efficiencies, reduce costs and terminate risks
  • Make information transparent and usable at much higher frequencies
  • Enable the collection of more accurate and detailed performance information on products and services, and therefore, expose variability and boost performance
  • Allow finer segmentation of customers and enable customisation of products and services
  • Help in the development of the next generation of products and services

From Data Mining, Machine Learning, and Social Web Analytics to Simulation Modelling, Data Mining, and Algorithmic Training – over the course of 3 years, SP Jain’s BDS takes you deep into every aspect of Big Data. Not simply from a theoretical perspective, but also through practical, applied capstone projects and industry internships that help students supplement academic knowledge with real-life industry experience, make meaningful contributions to companies, build strong professional contacts, and explore full-time career opportunities.

Australia has always been an education hub and the addition of Post Study Work Rights (PSWR) for 2 years* has made Australia a more conducive and exciting option for undergraduate and postgraduate study. BDS students, on completion of 2 years of full-time academic study in Sydney, are eligible to live and explore career opportunities in Australia for 2 years.
*Applicable as per the current Post Study Work Visa Rights in Australia. The laws are subject to change. 
In the last seven years of our short but decorated fourteen-year-old history, SP Jain and its programs have been ranked by reputed international publications. Our 1-year Global MBA program has been ranked by three of the world’s top four MBA rankings – Forbes, Financial Times and The Economist. In each of these rankings, we are amongst the youngest schools featured – an accomplishment we attribute to our unique and innovative model of business education.

The academic track of the program is made of a blend of core and advanced specialist subjects. Our curriculum is built on the principle that subjects get more and more specialised as you progress through the program.

A unique feature of the program is the requirement to undertake, in the final year, applied analytics capstone projects that give students practical, hands-on experience in identifying and interpreting actionable information from raw data, and using them to make informed, mathematically valid decisions.

The subjects undertaken in the first year of the program build a strong, general foundation in data science, mathematics as well as computer science. 

  • Discrete Mathematics
  • Mathematical Statistics
  • Introduction to Computer Programming
  • Introduction to Databases
  • Linear Algebra
  • Calculus

In Year 2, mathematical and analytical topics are explored in considerable depth, and students are exposed to topics such as Data Integration, Calculus, Data Structures, Programming, Machine Learning, and Matrix Algebra and Applications. 

  • Advanced Calculus
  • Algorithms and Data Structures
  • Data Integration and Warehousing
  • Visual Analytics (or Explorative data analysis)
  • Matrix Algebra and Applications
  • Programming for Analytics
  • Consumer Behaviour and Marketing Research
