The students will also get a chance to enhance their skills pertaining to information technology required for operating different business domains such as Telecom informatics, Banking, Financial services and Insurance informatics, e-commerce and Retail Informatics, and Healthcare Informatics.
The program will help students gain not only a competitive edge over others during interviews, internships as well as national and international contests, but also IBM’s globally-recognised Digital Badge, in addition to the degree offered by the University.
