Mumbai: S P Jain School of Global Management (S P Jain Global) has announced the launch of six new Professional Technology Programs, exclusively for working professionals. The duration of each course is 9 months, with a mix of online and offline classroom sessions every weekend, taking cognizance of the professionals’ work schedule.
Program Offerings: Machine Learning, Cybersecurity, Virtual Reality, Big Data & Visual Analytics, Digital Marketing & Metrics, and Fintech (Financial Technology).
Speaking on the launch, Mr. Nitish Jain, President, S P Jain School of Global Management, said, “In 2006, we were amongst the first to build a school which focused almost exclusively on an international tri-city educational model, transforming our students from ordinary graduates to 21st century global business leaders. Today, in 2017, the world is advancing and so are we. With technology taking over the world as we know it, we felt that the time was right to pioneer such innovative Professional Technology Programs that will help professionals stay relevant.”
“The World Economic Forum in one of its reports suggests that the transformed job market in the next five years will lead to a net loss of over five million jobs in 15 major developed and emerging economies. The change is already upon us. Robots are taking over surgeries, AI bots are creating new languages, VR is bringing new experiences to the convenience of people’s homes, banks are acquiring new customers using sophisticated technology. Software professionals in these new areas are in short supply and as a result, much sought after,” he added.
All of these programs have the unique distinction of being designed and delivered by world-class faculty, many of whom are themselves technology leaders and innovators who will bring with them a wealth of research, teaching, industry experience and knowledge of current technologies into the classroom. Furthermore, the school has tied up with various reputed international universities and technology providers to broaden the scope and delivery of these programs. The Cyber Security program is offered in partnership with a top Israeli University. And for the Virtual Reality, the school has tied up with the world’s leading VR technology platform ‘Unity Technologies’ to provide globally recognized certification for the program.
Classes for these programs will be conducted at S P Jain’s state-of-the-art campus in Kohinoor City, Mumbai. To be considered for any of these programs, applicants must have earned a Bachelor’s degree, and have at least two years of relevant work experience. S P Jain is currently accepting applications to these programs for the November 2017 intake.
