Why did Pathfinder launch this initiative?

Our exponential growth in Data Science cannot be achieved by relying exclusively on the skills available in the market. We realized the need to scale Data Science Project teams and devise unconventional methods to bridge the supply-demand gap, both within our organization and in the job market.

Given this objective, our knowledge, and expertise in Data Science, we moved a step ahead and built an academy that would meet our requirements, as well as those of our clients


Did you know that Data Science is one of the most sought-after and highest-paying professions today? It's true, the need for Data Scientists is growing at about three times the rate of those for Statisticians and BI Analysts.

Our Certification Course in Applied Data Science is designed with an immersive, industry-driven curriculum, giving you the flexibility (part-time and full-time) to become a d’labs certified Data Science Professional.

We have our state-of-the-art Facility in the IT zone on OMR, Chennai. Our facilities include a 100 seater seminar hall and large classrooms for students.
