New Delhi, 6th August, 2018: Talentedge, India’s first Ed-Tech firm, leading in Live and Interactive learning for working professionals, has observed a significant increase in the number of women opting for analytical courses in their platform.

Industry trends: Analytics jobs scenario in India is constantly evolving. Companies are looking to hire professionals who are well-versed with new tech concepts such as analytics, big data, data science, artificial intelligence and machine learning, among others. Last year India contributed 12% of worldwide open job requirements which has decreased to 10% this year. More than 90,000 job openings in data science & analytics are being advertised currently*. There has been significant increase in YoY growth in the new analytics jobs advertised per month.

According to a recent survey conducted by the firm, female student enrolments have a year on year growth rate of 100 percent. In the field of Analytics, women enrollment in Data Science courses has grown from 12% to 22%. In Business Analytics & Big Data the growth was observed at 26% as compared to 19% in the previous edition.

Analytical skills have become imperative across all industries from banking to sports and the capabilities are evolving rapidly. Today, there is a growing need for professionals with prodigious analytic skills with businesses centering towards being data driven, the need for an expert who can understand and interpret data is becoming vital. The lack of data efficient professionals in the industry is coming under the scanner and hence the growing demand for such courses by working professionals across industries. To cater to this, a lot of institutes in India & across the world have started offering courses on analytics. But for a working professional it is not easy to take up a regular degree course while pursuing a career, and that’s where online education comes as a viable solution.

Aditya Malik, CEO, Talentedge commented We have seen a rise in the number of women opting for all courses, and also a recent rise specifically for analytical courses. It is a very suitable and relevant skill set for a career in data sciences and consulting. It is encouraging to see so many women sign up for analytical courses; this will truly better their professional standing. A suitable mix of skills can be acquired without the hassle of taking time off from places of employment, and that’s what makes these courses really appealing to working professionals.”

It was additionally observed that students enrollment from the Southern regions of India was more than 50% this year, increasing significantly as compared to the last. The survey also revealed a major shift of under-graduated opting for certification courses than opting for a post-graduation degree.

The overall rise in Data Analytics courses was pegged at 62% this year with extremely positive growth projections.
