I recently joined as a Data Scientist. I must say, leaving eClerx and giving 1 year of my life to Praxis has not only helped me in enhancing my core analytical skills but also made me competitive in the field of Data Science.
Praxis has supported me with several opportunities to perform to my best! Working hard only pays off in the end if you also make the right choices. I did it by working hard with Praxis. Thank you so much!

Praxis provided me with a platform to hone my skills and a path to enter into the world of data science. The course curriculum was designed in such a way that it gave me not just a theoretical approach but also a practical one, that helps in solving real life business problems. The course covers a range of subjects with excellent faculty and industry support. I got placed with LTFS from campus and currently I am working as a Senior Data Scientist with Valiance Solutions. Praxis definitely has a part to play in helping me deliver business solutions.

I had zero experience of any kind in programming prior to joining the PGPDS program. I received the perfect guidance and study materials at Praxis. I feel that the faculty at Praxis is it's main strength and placements - the by product.
I had one of the best times of my life at Praxis, made very good friends and enjoyed a lot in all the activities at Praxis. It’s because of Praxis that I am working in one of the best domains as far as my career is concerned.
