The DEM program requires candidates to be holding a graduate degree from a recognised University and 3+ years of work experience. Announcing the opening of the admission season, Prof. Janat Shah, Director, IIM Udaipur said, “The DEM program aims at developing Business Leaders who will drive the Digital Economy. It is the first MBA in the country in which students focus on learning how to manage digital systems and how to use those systems to make data-driven decisions.” He further mentioned that students would learn from academicians and industry practitioners through case studies, simulations, frameworks and lab projects that will prepare them to face the challenges of the emerging digital world.
