Speaking on the announcement, Dr. Ramesh Bhat, Officiating Vice Chancellor, SVKM's NMIMS, Provost and Dean School of Business Management, said, "Today no enterprise can function without a robust digital infrastructure. Organizations must keep pace with emerging technology. We have just witnessed how the COVID-19 pandmic forced businesses to adopt a 'digital first' approach when existing conventional business processes proved inadequate. Most organizations have embedded legacy technologies that are obsolete and difficult to change. Organizations wanting to create a progressive digital culture need a talent pool that is well versed with technology, coupled with fundamentals of business management."
Dr. Anuja Agarwal, Professor & Associate Dean, Technology Management and In-charge MBA Business Analytics further, adds "The business in the world was already moving towards its digital avatar, the need to expedite it and fully embrace it, just got accentuated with the lockdown situation due to the pandemic. The realization of vulnerability from even more natural and man-made disasters in future has put the organizations to fast track their agenda of digitally transforming themselves. The organizations would require personnel who would be the catalyst of this evolution."

Ranging from prospects in consulting to being a Chief Digital Officer, to even taking on client facing roles in sales and marketing, the opportunities are endless.
