There is a lot of buzz around the Big Data in the industry. As a finance professional, navigating the entire technologies used in the Big Data was impossible for me without a proper structured certification. The Big Data Diploma offered by the Institute of Business Administration (IBA) is a unique as well as methodical program. Unlike majority of similar programs, IBA does not focus on a particular solution or technology instead it provide a holistic overview of almost all technologies relevant for this discipline. Therefore, this certification has made me a solution focused data scientist instead of a specific technology or domain professional.

The diploma in ERP system enhance my knowledge & practical skills very positively, 80% of the classes has Labs & hands on exposures of the ERP systems. The new things I learned are as follow:
The use of open source ERP systems/ Software & the integration of various systems in an organization.
SAP functional user of Financials & MM module.
I have learn to take some initiative to implementation of Oracle R12 application from the scratch through out the configurations.
I highly recommended to take this course to those, who plan to start or switch their careers to ERP implementations & need some exposure of top tier ERP systems like SAP & Oracle (applicable if IBA not modify the course outline of the course "Diploma in ERP Systems")


(Participant of Diploma in ERP)

The course was an excellent opportunity to learn and to elevate business infrastructure .The instructors have the right personality, enthusiasm and knowledge for this course, very easy to understand and they used excellent real life examples. There were non-technical and highly technical people in this class and they got us to understand each other. And last this is especially for Sir Imran, “Your class was something I looked forward to waking up to every Sunday! I appreciate your generosity and your authenticity with your students.”


(Participant of Diploma in ERP)

It was a great learning platform.
Four month was too short program for 6 enrich courses. All the faculty members are professional, but the way Mr Shams Zia lead the Oracle ERP was at its best. I wish the session video must be recorded and there must be a portal to view recorded lectures. Since all the candidate are professional, in case of missing a single class, candidate miss a lot to learn.
I suggest IBA should arrange and provide idesk for SAP program.
I wish the duration of course extended to minimum 6 months for each course. Or 12 month for all three courses. In such way we can deep dive ERP and become functional consultant in true means.


(Participant of Diploma in ERP)

As a student of diploma in ERP, I would appreciate the efforts of Mr. Imran Batada (Director – CICT) for providing such a platform to students and professionals for enhancing their ERP concepts and skills.
My experience as a student of ERP (diploma program) was lucrative, I have gained invaluable experience from ERP program faculty and I would also mention that the course content was well designed for individuals who are new to the field of finance and supply chain management.
One of the suggestions, I would give regarding the length of the program is to extend its duration from four months to six months for better learning outcome because sometimes it gets difficult to balance between work and study.
In the end it was a worthwhile experience and I’m thankful to my teachers for their genuine effort and effective teaching. Their practical experience in the field combined with their conceptual understanding of ERP was a major take away for me.

It was a great experience for me, the faculty was very helpful throughout the course. I made very good friends with a different set of skills. Teachers built the very basic foundations of the courses that can be mastered by practice. The knowledge and hands-on experience is the beauty of this diploma. The courses help me to achieve strength in different fields that are helping me in my business. Taking admission here was the best decision I made so far."

Recommendations for future Diploma, App Development should be excluded because it is very lengthy and those with less or no background of coding cannot do it. Brand Management course should be revised.

Being a part of IT-Entrepreneurship Program was an incredible experience. It was well designed and helped understanding the basics of starting any venture. I personally learnt a lot, being a designer we are bound in our own shells and I never thought that I.T could be our solution.

Meeting people of all the ages and all the different backgrounds made a super excellent environment to learn and grow personally as well as professionally. I wait entire week to come to the class on Friday and Saturday and learn something new and meet our teachers and friends. I would like to mention the team of super heroes behind this outline are our very own teachers who made learning fun and interactive. Loved, loved my experience!

The course was well-structured and planned out meticulously. Hands on training of the software was extremely beneficial to the point that I immediately implemented the info in my startup. Moreover the teachers were extremely helpful throughout the course and I never felt like I had to hold in a question from them. I would recommend this program to anyone who is looking to get a layman's intro into IT.
