MBA program in Information System and Data Engineering is designed to convert students with an interest in analytics into market-ready professional who would be able to tap the huge untapped potential of analytics across diﬀerent business sectors. Such opportunities have already been identiﬁed in KPOs, Banking, Retail, Pharmaceuticals, Web, and Market.
The backbone for all business decisions lies in data. Lower cost of computing and data storage powered by the internet has enabled organizations to collect and store humungous amounts of data. As a result, the need for MBAs who comprehend the science behind decision-making has become paramount. Top consulting firms and renowned enterprises are eagerly seeking talent with data and analytics skills. The popularity of analytics jobs is at a peak-high now. With high demand comes a high tag, and data engineering has emerged as the highest paying job worldwide. However, the talent market is experiencing an acute shortage of data professionals.
3 lakh+ Indian management graduates pass out every year, with just 10-15% of them being employable! The remaining 85% often are considered unemployable by companies due to lack of speciﬁc competencies. The need of the hour is to bridge this gap between the standard education system and the industry principles through an 'industry integrated MBA program.'
