Loyola Institute of Business Administration (LIBA), a Business School in Chennai, India was established in 1979. It’s a well respected business school, and best known for imparting high quality management education.
LIBA offers a two-year full-time Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM), approved by the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE). It also offers a part-time PGDM, a Ph.D program and Executive Diploma programs. The PGDM program offers a specialization in Business Analytics under which they teach relevant topics and leading technologies in analytics, with a focus on enhancing the employability of students.
In pursuit of providing students with advanced technologies in analytics, LIBA registered for the Qlik Academic Program to leverage resources such as free Qlik Sense software, online training in both Qlik and analytical theories as well as free qualifications
In their PGDM program (Business Analytics) in term four, LIBA offers a Business Data Visualization subject, and this year they included courses from the Qlik Academic Program. Since knowledge of self-service analytics is an important skill in business studies, utilizing the free resources of the academic program presented them with a great opportunity to learn analytics.
LIBA structured 3 hours of classroom learning with 3 course credits which included topics such as “Introduction to Qlik Sense”, Creating Charts” and “Building Applications”. After this classroom learning, students embarked on projects to gain practical insights and applications in data analytics to cement their knowledge further.
In their bid to continue this journey , these students are now exploring the possibility of preparing for the Business Analyst qualification offered under the academic program. Professor Dr. M Ramasubramaniam who led this initiative at LIBA also has plans to offer the Qlik Academic Program to the Executive Diploma in Management students next year.
In its mission to create a data literate world, one student at a time, this partnership with LIBA holds great promise for the program.
