FDP on ‘Data Analysis & Structural Equation Modeling’

Research and Development Cell of Asian Business School hosted a 5 Days Faculty Development Program (Hybrid mode) on ‘Data Analysis using SPSS’ from 24th – 30th June, 2023. FDP started with the gracious presence of Dr. Shweta Batra, Dean Academics, Asian Business School and she emphasized the necessity of Research Methodology & Data Analytics and how it is required to adopt the methodologies and techniques for effective research and Ms. Bushra, member RDC cell, welcomed all the participants. Mr. Sumit Rastogi and Mr. Manoj Kumar Mishra were the resource persons of this FDP.

This FDP was intended to train participants with basic & advanced data analysis skills using SPSS & AMOS to produce quality research work. The key focal point of the training was to identify the right statistical tools and techniques for different research objectives and carrying out data analysis. The participants learnt techniques about data entry and analysis in SPSS. In FDP Complete hands-on training methodology was used targeting ‘do how’ rather than only ‘know how’. FDP was successful in fulfilling its learning outcomes enabling the participants to analyze & interpret the concerned data through SPSS & AMOS. FDP was attended by academicians, research scholars, and executives from industry. The participants actively participated in all the 9 sessions and were given hands-on experience in working using real data and examples. The Faculty Development Program has covered the following contents with hands-on experience.
