Dr. Shubhro Sen, Director, School of Management and Entrepreneurship said, “Our programdesigns are centered on success in a technology disrupted, rapidly changing global business environment and the many exciting placement options available to those with the requisite training. The curriculum includes personalized strength assessments and coaching as well as the flexibility to develop deep specializations and career tracks in multiple high demand areas.

All SME programs are specifically designed to address that gap in a compelling and differentiated manner.
