Irrespective of domain, all business industries are in dire need of analyzing their huge volume of data in a proper way to come up with new insights which will help them in revenue generation and business development. There is a huge dearth of resource person on analyzing the data and bring with new ideas in parallel and vertical development of the business. Organizations across the globe are excited by the prospect of "data-driven science" as a complement to traditional knowledge-driven decision-making process. It is very much evident from the fact that Social media and software product giants like, Facebook, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, IBM, LinkedIn and many other Fortune-500 organizations are already making huge investments in large scale data analytics to help them exploit the power of extracting wisdom (useful insights) from the massive raw data being generated at a very high pace in today’s world. In 2012, Harvard Business Review named data scientist the “sexiest job of the 21st century.”

Data Scientists are better statistician than computer programmer and better computer programmer than the Statistician. Students who come out of school education can shape their career by intersecting in this specialization to get the huge job opportunities in data science field. After globalization, career evangelist come up with new era called “Data Era” , since from last two years of data generation is approximately equal to the data generated in past all years. So, analyzing this huge volume of data eventually paves way for the new age career option in data science.

Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor's chief economist, told Business Insider. "It's one of the hottest and fastest growing jobs we're seeing right now."

Pioneers/ Leaders providing similar course/s

There are quite a number of international universities offering Data Science, Data mining and machine learning as major at graduate level by University of California - UC San Diego, Stanford University, University of Colorado, Wesleyan University. India, only few engineering colleges offers BCA Data Science as a Specialization. Hence, it is very much imperative that Sharda University takes a lead in this scenario and align its BCA program to produce Data Science talent pipeline for the industry (Indian as well as global) at under-graduate level. Sharda University intend to offer this program as BCA so that students undergo an extensive curriculum in the field of Data science and be industry ready professional in data science stream.
