The Manipal-based TA Pai Management Institute (TAPMI), in association with Mu Sigma (a data analytics and decision sciences firm), has inducted the first batch of its post-graduate certificate programme in ‘Leadership through Analytics and Decision Sciences’ (L.E.A.D.).

According to a TAPMI statement, the programme is the country’s first post-graduate certificate in leadership through analytics and decision sciences, and intends to create leaders in the digital age with the required learning mindset to solve real-world business problems.

The 25 members inducted in this batch will go through 11 months of training at TAPMI’s campus in Manipal and at the Mu Sigma campus in Bengaluru.

Of the 11-month programme, the training in TAPMI for six months will focus on delivering foundations of management, business communication, design thinking, behavioural sciences, and leadership.

Experiential training

The five-month training at Mu Sigma will deliver experiential training where students will apprentice with Mu Sigma team and learn by doing through access to multi-disciplinary real-world problems and innovation in the Mu Sigma ecosystem, it said.

Quoting Madhu Veeraraghavan, Director of TAPMI, the release said that TAPMI is committed to strengthening its connect with the industry and is committed to create future-ready business leaders. The programme offers courses in the field of management which will enable leaders to respond to intense competitive pressure, adapt to rapidly-changing market conditions, satisfy customer demands at increasingly granular levels, and be consistently innovative, he said.

Dhiraj Rajaram, founder and CEO and Chairman of Mu Sigma, said the rapidly-changing complex business landscape has created a need to relearn leadership. “The reality is that the problem space is evolving so quickly that it’s hard to keep up with it if you're not in the world where these problems are happening, which means that students must be trained on real problems in the industry ecosystem,” he said.
