He informed the students that the average duration of an undergraduate programme in the UK is 3 years and a postgraduate programme is 1 year in UK, which in turn helps students save time and money for International Studies. So, it is neither a waste of time nor money if you spend it on education.

MIM Courses Abroad
Many students asked the panellists regarding the scope of Masters in Management (MIM) courses overseas during the webinar on International Studies. Most of the questions asked were also directed towards MIM in Canada and the scope related to it. Masters in Management (MIM) is a postgraduate – level degree program that lasts for a duration of 1 or 2-year depending upon the country and university one plans to join. MIM differs from MBA, based on the practical and theoretical approach of these two choicest programs. Like other management degrees, MIM concentrates on Marketing, Finance, Entrepreneurship, Consulting and related fields. The degree equips individuals with all that is needed to become a successful professional.
Khyaati Jain remarked that when it comes to seeking a MIM degree, Canada outshines as an ideal destination for International Studies because of its industry-oriented program structure, shorter program duration, higher employability rate, economical tuition fee etc. MIM in Canada is one of the most opted management courses by the Indian students as the country allows you to pursue it with minimum requirements.
Scope of Data Science and Analysis
Data Science is a combination of algorithms, machine learning concepts, and numerous other methods used to record, process and interpret data in order to gain valuable and useful knowledge. Our panellist Gaurav Bhatia answered a wide array of questions related to Data Science and Analysis. Data scientists extract and analyse information from a wide variety of channels, such as log files, social media, sensors, consumer purchases, in order to unlock valuable information to affect a company’s decisions and generate comparative advantage over other peers. There are a lot of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Data Science.

It not only provides food to us but also supplies raw material to numerous industries.
