Students Testimonials

“The field of business analytics being as vast and as growing as it is, it is quintessential that you begin off with the right institute and I found Praxis living up to its reputation in that. Although there were some initial hiccups being the first batch in Bangalore; the management, the faculty, and the students together were able to sail through smoothly and create a great learning experience. The course content is relevant to the market and in-depth. It does not concentrate only on Statistics and Machine Learning but also on its application to business. The Statistics, SQL, and data mining faculties leave a mark on how the content is delivered and making sure that the students understand it well.
So, if you are up for the “grind”, it can be one of the best places you can find…” Karuna Tiwari – Deputy Manager, Hinduja Global Solutions – PGPBA Class of 2017, Bangalore

“My Experience with Praxis, Bangalore was great and it helped to shift my career after 3 years of Experience from Sales to Analytics. Classes from faculty members working in the Industry helped me to learn about on-the-ground projects and practices in the domain. Rigorous projects, assignments, and competitions prepared us to meet the Industry requirement. It is an institute that gives the best ROI when compared to its peers in the industry.” Praveen Cumar – Manager – Analytics, L & T Financial Services – PGPBA Class of 2017, Bangalore
