"I am thankful to all our professors for strengthening my confidence and knowledge with this course. This has given me the strength to take on a complex live project in my company, and hence this value addition has helped me get a promotion."




"The inimitable features of APSCM were hugely comprehensive. In addition, the hands-on sessions during the campus module were enormously helpful. Interacting with the IIM Calcutta professors, who are all stalwarts in their respective fields, was a lifetime experience. The professors were immensely enthusiastic and took care to deliver the most difficult topics in the simplest of ways. This course has helped me learn advanced methods of working in a scenario where new technologies are being introduced every day. It made me feel that the sky would be the only limit."
