As part of the Live industry project offered by Ivy Professional School in its Data Science and Machine Learning Certification course, students are exposed to live Industry cases which provide them with an opportunity to implement their skills one on one and to be industry ready while still learning the latest business tools. This project added the extra edge giving an opportunity to students to even showcase their team work and leadership qualities amongst the technical skills.

It provided a perfect platform to test the analytical and research skills of budding analytics professionals.

Speaking on the topic one of our students who has been placed at Nielsen recently, Yash Agarwal said and I quote .. “Industry cases provide opportune moments to apply our learnings alongside getting to know the latest trends and when a company like Right2Vote teams up with Ivy, we know we are at the right place”.

The contestants were not expected to do any primary research  although they were certainly expected to back the findings of their report with data and logic.

Some key pointers covered in their reports included :

  • Customer Demographic Analysis and analysing the gaps in the matket place.
  • Comparison with international voting market – how the markets have evolved, how they are structured, who are the players, what is the size, what is the price customer is willing to pay etc. 
  • Who are the competitors and SWOT analysis of the competitors including Scytl, CDSL, NSDL, Karvy, CDAC

The winners were rewarded for their hard work with certificates, cash prizes of INR 5000 and also an opportunity for the coveted internship with Right2Vote.

“The aim of this project was to nudge the participants towards analysing the online voting industry in a country there is very limited study or research done on online voting as a business or an industry….It would give them a broader perspective on how they can use their Analytical skills sets in a completely unique environment.” says Prateek Agrawal, Director, Ivy Professional School.
