The program is tailored for early-to mid-career professionals but can also elevate senior professionals' managerial skills.
The Online MBA is aiming to foster cognitive skills and empower decision-making and critical thinking while instilling agile thinking across business and technical domains.
UMass also promises its participants advantages that align with in-person programs, such as alumni status and creating a robust network.
UMass Global's vice-chancellor Ricardo Lorenzana said: “We are thrilled to announce the launch of our MBA program in India, a testament to UMass Global’s commitment to providing world-class education on a global scale.”
The 18-month program, set to begin on February 19th, is priced at a fee of INR 3,32,000 ($4000). Its fully online format gives professionals the opportunity to upskill at their own pace and in their own environment.
