MBA Information Systems and Data Engineering

Data analytics is the backbone of all business decisions. The lower cost of computing and data storage powered by the Internet has enabled organisations to collect and store vast amounts of data. This has led to the rising need for MBAs trained to comprehend the science behind the decision making.

NIIT University’s (NU) two-year MBA programme in Information Systems and Data Engineering is designed to train students in data analytics and enable them to tap into its huge potential across different business verticals. Analytics jobs are trending right now as top consulting firms and renowned enterprises eagerly seek talent with data and analytic skills. Data engineering is one of the highest paying jobs worldwide.

To tackle the acute shortage of well-trained data professionals, NU ushers in a unique first-of-its-kind MBA programme in Information Systems and Data Engineering in partnership with the academic experts and senior professionals from Coforge Ltd, a leading global IT solutions organisation.

This work-integrated programme supported by Artificial Intelligence emphasises strong industry-focused domain training and highlights first mover advantage. It presents a unique opportunity not only to tackle the challenges of dynamic corporate India, but to also create a long-lasting career in data, which is one of the fastest growing careers globally.
