Anirban Tewary always has been an eager learner. As the current deputy vice president of risk and governance for Axis Bank in Mumbai, he has successfully climbed the career ladder by upskilling himself whenever he sees a need.
With nearly 19 years of varied experience in I.T., Anirban has never turned away from a challenge. After many years in corporate, Anirban realized that he needed an MBA to achieve his career goals. He earned a postgraduate diploma in management, finance, and corporate strategy from the Indian Institute of Management, Kozhikode.
Next, he found the need to sharpen his understanding of data science.
“My current role demands a lot of understanding of data,” Anirban said. “I wanted to be self-dependent in terms of understanding and interpreting data and machine learning. And I have also been interested in data science. So I decided to enroll in Simplilearn’s Post Graduate in Data Science program.
