Why MBA (Digital Business Management)?

Program Overview

In today’s world, when IT giants such as Microsoft, Amazon, Google are dealing with 1.5 million terabytes of data, “Digitalization” is the buzz word in the business world that is transforming business to generate higher revenue and create value-added services. By 2026, global digital transformation spending has been forecasted to reach 3.4 trillion U.S. dollars. Successful organizations are enriching their digital transformation journey by focusing on enlightening people with the right mindset and technology.

Organizations across the globe are looking for business professionals with cross-functional expertise flavoured with digital skills to create, manage, and transform traditional ways of doing business. The competencies such as designing business systems, organizational structures, and processes using sophisticated tools and techniques are highly sought after by corporations. Moreover, the recent pandemic has triggered the need for innovative business models that facilitate seamless transactions across the business value chain with minimal manual intervention(s).
