To expand its reach and bring in international students, the Columbia Business School will be launching an executive programme on digital business leadership in India. The programme will be provided in association with Mumbai-based Eruditus Executive Education.
This will be India’s first multi-modular programme offered by the University. The 6-month long Digital Business Leadership Program will be launched in July 2017 both on-campus and online. The programme will comprise three in-person on-campus immersion modules along with two online modules.
Co-founder and Director of Eruditus Executive Education, Chaitanya Kalipatnapu talked about the programme and said that it will be India’s first extensive program on digital disruption offered by a B-school. He also added that the programme will enable six-month journey and exposure opportunities at Columbia's New York and Silicon Valley with projects on digital disruption.
The programme will be open for executives across the world and will focus on specific skill development to meet the changing demands of the market. The programme will enable business experts to understand how technology is disrupting every sector, added Kalipatnapu.
Individuals working in the e-commerce and digital domain will find the programme most advantageous. They will get a distinct approach on how to implement digital disruption in their businesses. It will also help candidates who are managing a traditional business environment and facing the digitization challenge.
The DBLP programme aims at teaching the participants:
- Ways to develop digital leadership skills
- The changing needs of consumers with digitization and ways to engage with them
- The disruptive business model and strategies to mastering them
The fees of the programme will be $36,000 and it is being directed by David Rogers, Professor, Columbia Business School. Candidates will also be able to benefit from the Columbia Business School alumni network after completing the programme.
