Become a Disruptive Digital Leader with a Global Perspective

This era is defined by disruptions of all kinds: tech-led disruptions, pandemic, war, and so on. Never before in history have organizations experienced this magnitude of volatility and uncertainty. Business models become obsolete and new industries are created overnight. This scale of change has never been so massive.

Organizations today now require leaders who not just help them navigate this labyrinth of disruptions, but also use them to create a competitive edge. As a futuristic educational powerhouse, NMIMS understands this critical demand from the industry, and has curated one-of-its-kind dual-degree MBA programme by collaborating with Thunderbird School of Global Management (Thunderbird) at Arizona State University (ASU). Leaders who enroll in this programme complete the first year at the School of Business Management (SBM), NMIMS Mumbai, and the second year at Thunderbird.

Students earn two degrees in two years—a Master of Global Management (MGM) at Thunderbird, which is ranked No. 1 in the world in international trade, according to QS 2023 World Rankings, and an MBA from SBM, Mumbai, which is among the top 100 Master in Management programmes globally, as per FT100 rankings for 2022.

The distinguishing characteristic of this breed of disruptive digital leaders is their ability to lead complex business transformations, leveraging today’s digital technologies. The programme builds on strong foundations of business and management, with specializations in three concentrations:

  • Global Digital Transformation
  • Data Science
  • Global Business
