MYRA School launches Analytics and Data Science Lab

January 2, 2020

This initiative will help the growing Indian talent pool with an avidity of technology

Mysuru:  Myra School of Business, Mysuru, has launched an Analytics and Data Science (A&DS) Lab at their campus in Yelwal recently. The lab, sponsored by ACER and AMD, is the first-of-its-kind industry-academia collaboration in Mysuru aimed at training students in data analytics. 

Data scientists, data engineers and business analysts are among the most sought-after jobs in India and there is huge shortage of talent when it comes to these skillsets.

The Lab features fully networked high-end AMD powered PCs and laptops from ACER. It is equipped with latest analytics software like Systat and OriginPro. It has a dedicated server to host networked drivers and to facilitate seamless exchange of information. Using the latest audio-visual aid and a 20 Mbps internet connectivity, students will get trouble free access to various e-learning tools, discussion forums and shared drives.

The A&DS Lab is also equipped with facilities that encourage immersive learning. Its design and layout are inspired by co-working spaces to promote an open exchange of ideas. 

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Sudhi Seshadri, Dean, MYRA School of Business said,“MSB has been running a specialisation in analytics and data science from its inception; and we thank Acer and AMD for giving this opportunity to our faculty and students to work together, create best practices and drive new knowledge. The A&DS Lab is part of the school’s continuous effort to bridge the gap between business education and corporate expectations; and reflects its constant endeavour in up-skilling our students.” 

Harish K. Kohli, President and Managing Director, Acer India  and Vinay Sinha, Managing Director, Sales, AMD India Private Limited, also spoke on the occasion.
