As you have joined the integrated course in computational statistics and data analytics, it will lead you to a M.Sc. degree in it. It is a specialised field and if you work hard and learn the various aspects of applied statistics and data science, it will help you in making a good career in the field of computational statistics. In fact, data analytics is related to the analysis of large data sets to identify trends, develop charts for these trends and then based on these presentations the management of a company or organisation can take strategic decisions for developing and flourishing the business. A data analyst will generally be mining and presenting data in usable form but if he has a knowledge of a particular business and its elements then he can very well suggest measures for business development also functioning in a role of a business analyst.
As per my knowledge it is a good career option as there is a demand of data analysts in various fields. They are generally absorbed as Statisticians, Data Analysts, Data Scientists, Data Engineers/ Managers, Big Data Engineers, Program Managers, Project Managers etc.
If you work hard and come in the merit then the chances of getting a good job increase manifold. After completing your course you have scope for teaching positions in educational institutes, scope as research associate in Govt organisations like CSIR, ISRO and DRDO, can apply in banks, scope in various industries etc. Some of the leading business houses which recruit data analysts are Tata, Infosys, IBM, Mu Sigma, Bosch, Honeywell, Microsoft, Zifo and many more.
You have to keep a watch on the openings for these posts in the job portals and other places so that the modalities for applying for the same are known to you in time. One thing which is important to note is that many students are now a days going for these career lines and to that extent there will be competition and tough fight so one has to focus and dedicate in the studies to increase ones knowledge and acquire the related skills in best of the ways. These things matter at the time of counselling for the appointments.
If you can financially afford, you have options to apply for further studies or research work in universities abroad which may open up still better career options for you as there is a need of data analysts in many foreign countries paying high remunerations for these positions.
Knowledge is power.
