DASCA Recognized Institutions

If you have a degree or a qualification from a DASCA-recognized institution or a university, you’re one step closer to QualiFLY™ to your DASCA Credential of interest. Your institution can either be the DASCA QualiFLY™ List 1 (Q1) or the DASCA QualiFLY™ List 2 (Q2). Both the lists include institutions whose qualifications/ credentials are DASCA approved for being considered for QualiFLY.

The Q1 List includes higher-education institutions, business schools, technology colleges, universities, and highly specialized Data Sciences schools whose programs in Information Technology/ Computer Science/ Business/ Management/ Market Research/ Statistics/ Mathematics etc., have already completed the rigorous DASCA-recognition process. The Q2 List, on the other hand, includes those institutions whose programs are undergoing the validation, assessment, and other DASCA-recognition formalities. In due course, Q2 institutions move up into the Q1 list, becoming a part of the expanding community of DASCA-aligned Data Science educators.

While quite a few energetic, up-and-coming institutions with proven capabilities for breeding world-class young professionals are already a part of the Q2 list, both the DASCA lists include institutions of global renown. These lists update once every quarter and DASCA strongly encourages institutions to apply for inclusion in the DASCA institutional recognition program to help their students leverage QualiFLY™ and amplify their employability for the exciting Big Data and Data Science professions.
