After working in the automotive industry for a few years, I realized that I needed to supplement my engineering knowledge with new management skills and tools. The NIT MBA program in Technology Management has helped me achieve that goal. I am now more prepared to face a constantly changing world.
Studying my MBA at the NIT gives me the opportunity to combine business studies and science. The program allows me to put my research and daily work into a broader context. I really appreciate this extensive higher education program.
The NIT community feels like a family. Everyone looks out for each other, and everyone knows your name. You’re somebody. Something that is very rare in most universities.
