Integrating engineering with management: How NMIMS is leading the way

With technology transforming businesses across the globe, the professional landscape has become a dynamic space. Companies are now betting big on talent that is trained to meet new age demands, possess inter-disciplinary skills, and can innovate to keep up with industry rapids. This has, therefore, put an added impetus on young students to opt for courses that make them market competitive and industry-ready. One field of study that has been massively impacted by this is engineering. As the world experiences a new wave of digitalisation and rapidly adopts technologies like internet-enabled smart devices, autonomous vehicles, Machine Learning tools, Artificial Intelligence, among others, the B. Tech degree has become all-encompassing. Companies are now looking for human resources who are not only experts at emerging technologies in their domain but also understand its impact on company’s goals and business practices. This development has put the spotlight on business management techniques and analytical skills in engineering graduates. The B. Tech graduate in the evolved market is now expected to implement new technology and practices for the complete use of resources and efficient production, making an additional management degree vital to scale up the success ladder.


The rise of integrated B. Tech + MBA Courses

Owing to this intersection of engineering with management, many institutions are developing integrated courses that can give young graduates a leg up while venturing into the job market for the first time. As degrees curated for the global marketplace, integrated B. Tech + MBA programs train students on Business Management alongside Core Engineering. The integration also becomes helpful in saving an academic year for students who are unable to give two years of their career to do an MBA degree post their B. Tech course. This is why reputed institutes across the country are tailoring integrated courses that can give these students double the value of at the same study duration and cost. Most generic B. Tech programmes in the country do not train students to solve complex business problems, and this can be resolved through integrated courses that leverage both managerial and technical expertise to connect the dots across different aspects of their specialized domain.
