FunctionUp introduces a job-enabled Data Analytics course for working professionals and freshers
FunctionUp, India’s leading placement bootcamp for data analytics and engineering, introduces a full-scale 12-week data analytics cohort after 100% placement success in Pilot Project. The company launched the project in April 2022 and received an overwhelming response from both candidates and hiring partners, with 11 LPA being the highest package. Following its success, FunctionUp added two more cohorts in the last two months, training over 100 students with a placement guarantee.
The company received over 5,000 applications for its new data analytics cohorts and chose the top 1.2% of candidates based on test assignment evaluation and interviews. FunctionUp is currently anticipating 10,000+ applications and 200+ admissions for its future data analytics cohorts by October 2022.
There is a huge demand across industries for professionals to help make smart decisions with the use of sophisticated tools and available data. FunctionUp aims to bridge this skill gap with its full-scale data analytics cohorts. The company’s vision is to provide students with hands-on experience using technologies such as SQL, Tableau, and PowerBI, as well as to develop industry-grade projects that expose them to real-world professional challenges.
Commenting on the same, Bharat Gupta, CEO and Founder of FunctionUp, said, “Data analytics is a fast-growing sector that is still in its early stages. As it expands, it will need skilled individuals who can make data-driven decisions. Data analytics experts in India are also paid 50% more than their peers in other IT service domains because of their scarcity and job profile. Our new course is goal-oriented, enabling students to develop a skill base that can translate into excellent job opportunities.”
The FunctionUp data analytics program is designed to expose students to practical learning, capstone projects, mock interviews, and other assignments that will help them understand basic concepts as thoroughly as possible. The company’s NSDC affiliation allows each graduate to receive course certification after program completion.
The company also offers placements to candidates once they successfully complete the cohorts. Candidates can begin the data analytics cohort bootcamp for as little as Rs 5,500 per month, payable only after placement. The platform aims to give candidates a future-proof career path without adding to their financial burdens.
The data analytics curriculum was designed under the supervision of industry specialists with more than ten years of experience each. The FunctionUp team ensures that every participant completes their assignments on time and attends mock interviews for successful placements.
FunctionUp is India’s leading backend development bootcamp, which trains candidates in software development courses, especially backend engineering. The company was established in 2021 by Bharat Gupta and Pritesh Kumar and is headquartered in Bangalore.
FunctionUp provides a placement bootcamp, offering online live classes, educational content, and training sessions for learners to secure high-paying jobs as software developers. The business model of the platform is Pay after Placement, where candidates pay for tuition fees after getting their first salaries. FunctionUp has a limited number of seats for learners with stringent selection criteria. With more than 1,000 active learners, FunctionUp intends to be the largest and most aspirational coding platform in the country.
