This is a first of its kind and not offered by any B School of country. Incidentally, IIM Bangalore launched a new Program - 2 year full time MBA in Business Analytic very recently.
The full-time two-year management course will include subjects like philosophy, economics, literature and sociology. The program, is scheduled to start in June next year and IIM K will accept 20-25 students in its first batch. “The world is changing very quickly. it requires people to decode culture and technology. Data needs to be made sense of. The program would merge the job-worthiness of an MBA program with the academic rigour of a master’s degree at a university”, said Director Prof Debashis Chatterjee.
With changing times and market dynamics the expectations and requisite managerial skill sets are also changing at a fast pace. Requirements differ from industry to industry organisation to organisation. According to experts, such courses are bound to be developed as lot of recruiters are looking for managers who can bring in the "softer" elements of management - like how to work with machines and people together, stress management, etc. Earlier, managers needed to extract efficiency from their teams, but now there are machines to do ultra-efficient tasks.
