The Indian Institute of Management Udaipur will introduce a new programme to let students work efficiently in the fast-changing world of technology, a top official has said. Simultaneously, the institute is also laying out plans to become the leading research institute of the country in the years to come.

“We are preparing a programme on analytics and new technologies to enable students work efficiently in the new environment of technology, be it artificial intelligence or blockchain, which is influencing our lives and businesses,” Janat Shah, Director of IIM Udaipur, told PTI.

He said that the programme would cater to the needs of emerging digital business enterprises and the aspirants will be able to apply for it in a couple of months. “Traditionally, we would launch the course only when we are ready with all the material. Here we are going to do it in a different way because the pace of change in digital space does not give us the luxury of time,” he said.

The institute, which is among the top five management institutes in the country in the area of research, is putting together a set of faculty, who will work with the industry to develop the relevant course material, Shah said.
