The Bank has launched Data Digits certification programme to train and hire data scientists


HDFC Bank will train and hire skilled data scientists this year. With the launch of its HDFC Bank Data Digits-Post Graduate Programme in Data Engineering, the Bank is looking to train and build digital talent for the BFSI industry. It will hire 100 data scientists from this initiative this year.

The learners will be trained through live lectures and instructor-led sessions, which will be conducted by senior HDFC bank executives over a period of 12 weeks. The Bank has partnered with a skill and talent-development corporation to create this customised learning programme for HDFC. The aim of this partnership is to provide the BFSI industry with skilled and meaningful talent in the area of data analytics and data science.

“We are launching a programme customised for HDFC Bank called ‘data digits’, a certification programme in data engineering. This programme has been curated to create a comprehensive training module, which highlights key skills such as data analytics and Big Data fundamentals among others, while additionally honing visualisation skills for business insights. With this partnership, we are confident of creating the perfect launch pad for those wishing to pursue a career in data science,” shares Ranga Subramanian, SVP-HR, HDFC Bank.

With the changing needs of the customers and technology disrupting the banking sector, the need for tech and analytical talent has increased in the banking sector. This initiative will help the industry to build readymade talent, which was otherwise heavily dependent on attracting tech talent from other sectors.
