OP Jindal Global University and Coursera jointly launch three online master’s degrees

Three online university master's degree programmes will be offered through Coursera by OP Jindal Global University (JGU). Master of Business Administration in Business Analytics, Master of Arts in International Relations, Security, and Strategy, and Master of Arts in Public Policy are some of the new programmes. The Jindal Global Business School is developing a Master of Business Administration in Business Analytics on Coursera. This specialised MBA programme prepares business professionals for strategic, administrative, and analyst positions by teaching them how to use data analytics and data science to recognise and solve business problems.

The Master of Arts in Public Policy is the first Master's in Public Policy offered on Coursera, according to the website. By teaching students to analyse policy, experience real-world policymaking firsthand, and develop leadership skills, the MA in Public Policy will train them for leading policy and civil service roles. Diplomacy, dispute resolution, ethics, and intelligence analysis are all taught in the MA in International Relations, Security, and Strategy programme to help students develop a comprehensive approach to international affairs.

“This is in line with the vision of the National Education Policy 2020 and in fulfilment of the policy momentum of the Government of India to provide greater access to education using technology and innovation,” said C Raj Kumar, founding vice-chancellor of OP Jindal Global University. The Office of Academic Innovation and the Centre for Online Education have both been established.”

Students will now apply for the September 2021 cohort of the MBA in Business Analytics, MA in International Relations, Security and Strategy, and MA in Public Policy.
