WHY A TECH MBA WITH US?

Technology offers new opportunities for innovation, the new workforce wants flexible working arrangements and tools, consumers adapt very quickly to the convenience of mobile apps and instant gratification, and new competitors are disintermediating the traditional value chains. 

Companies will have to adapt to this new normal, and as the rate of change increases, they will have to do this rapidly, or they will lose their licence to operate.

The only way forward is digital transformation. Companies will have to master the new world of digital technologies, the hard skills of data and technology, and the soft skills of fast innovation, agile development and rapid experimentation.

There is a growing demand for business leaders who can effectively combine their strategic and business skills with technical acumen and agile leadership skills. 

With a Tech MBA with us, you will go beyond a traditional MBA and learn to develop a new mindset and acquire the skills to transform and innovate your digital business by developing new business models and strategies. At the same time, you get equipped with the skills and tools to lead your teams more agilely.
