Gradual Upskilling

Our courses cater to students from diverse backgrounds, who are at different levels and have different study needs. To ensure that our MBA students have an adequate understanding of business technology, an Introduction to Python Programming accelerator course is offered during orientation. Python programming is a highly marketable skill increasingly sought after by companies in making data-driven business decisions.

By establishing a fundamental understanding of this programming language, you can improve your understanding of how it can be applied to diverse business functionalities. This acts as an introductory course for students without any programming knowledge, and prepares them for more advanced elective courses such as Deep Learning Business Applications with Python or Business Analytics in R.
