Student Testimonials:
Here are testimonials from some of our students
"Thanks a ton for the training at Jigsaw - I feel redeemed!
After completing my training in business analytics from IIT-Mumbai, I almost felt a sense of defeat.  While I had gone through several hundred pages of Econometrics and Statistics, I was not able to apply my education.  Your programme helped me to snap out the academic mode in style!  Within 6 weeks, I found myself burning the mid-night oil trying to code analytics solutions in SAS on live data spanning thousands of records.  Something I had not imagined I would be doing so quickly.  Sarita is a thorough professional and her real-world experience shines through in her teaching style.  Looking forward to training with you folks on the advanced modules!"

"Most of the time, when you attend any class, even for higher studies, the emphasis is always on ‘completing the content / curriculum rather than to linking it to real time business scenario. I recollect memories from Advanced Business Analytics course from IIT Mumbai, where the strong theoretical foundation for Analytics was built. Only catch in that course was real time application….However after joining the Analytics course conducted by Jigsaw Academy I feel that Gap is now bridged. 
The whole course is built on the case study and hands on working experience on analytical tools. Needless to say both, Gaurav & Sarita are great individuals and domain experts, and to add to it they keep you connected. Both are very easily approachable; make all possible attempts to resolve the queries/issues. This course has given me totally new perspective, boosted confidence Highly recommended!!"

"With Data Analytics becoming the new buzzword in major industries, Jigsaw Academy's Analytics Course is the need of the hour. Currently very few training providers are offering this program virtually and having gone through the program I can vouch for the excellent value addition that Jigsaw is providing. The syllabus is exhaustive covering SAS and various analytical methodologies. The instructors are very knowledgeable and always eager to guide/help.  More importantly through this course I feel comfortable working with and deriving inferences from  huge amounts of data. The training through virtual platform is seamless  with no connectivity issues and is as good as a virtual classroom can get. Weekly assignments help to strengthen the concepts. A good investment indeed! Thanks Jigsaw."
