Xavier’s Business School, under the patronage of Rev. Fr. Dr. Jhon Felix Raj S.J. and the leadership of Prof. Dr. Soma Sur, in collaboration with Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR, ERC) organized a Faculty Development Programme on Data Analytics from 26th November to 6th December, 2018. Keeping in mind the present industrial trend of data driven business and coordinating the academics to accommodate the industrial requirement, the curriculum of the FDP was designed. Besides all the in-house faculty members of St. Xavier’s University, Kolkata, faculties from other institutes of Kolkata had also joined in this FDP to make it a grand success. To train this august gathering, XBS invited experienced academicians and industrial practitioners of repute from ICSSR Kolkata, IIFT Kolkata, ISI Kolkata, NIT Durgapur, IMT Ghaziabad, SPSS South East Asia and St. Xavier’s University and the ten-day FDP became a huge success.
