The specialized MBA program, developed by the Jindal Global Business School, will teach business professionals how to apply data analytics and data science to identify and solve business problems — preparing them for strategic, managerial, and analyst roles.

The MA in Public Policy, offered by the Jindal School of Government and Public Policy, will prepare students for leading policy and civil service positions by teaching them to analyze policy, explore real-world policymaking first-hand, and enhance managerial skills.

The MA in International Relations, Security and Strategy, offered by the Jindal School of International Affairs, will teach diplomacy, conflict resolution, ethics, and intelligence analysis to help students develop a holistic approach to international affairs.

“We are excited to partner with JGU to launch the first degrees from an Indian university on Coursera, providing greater access to higher education,” said Betty Vandenbosch, Chief Content Officer at Coursera.
