This collaboration offers MBA, MCA, and BBA programs with specialties in Digital Marketing, Data Science, Full Stack Development, Cloud Computing, and Artificial Intelligence.
These UGC recognized degree programs have been designed by academic experts and digital innovators from academia and industry to help students master core concepts in various specializations. In addition to the degree from the University, the students will also receive an Advanced Professional Certificate from Great Learning.

The MBA program in Digital Marketing and Data Science blends the traditional MBA curriculum with new-age skills like Artificial Intelligence, Data Analytics, Python, Predictive Analytics, and Web and Social Media Analytics. The MCA programs cover some of the most sought-after skills by the industry including Python, SQL & NoSQL, Microsoft Azure, AWS, Data Visualization, Software Engineering, Business Analysis, and Data Communication.
The launch of these programs comes after the recent announcement by the government under the New Education Policy that enables universities to offer online degrees. Recognizing and enabling online degrees in India will reshape education delivery in the country, making top-quality education from prominent universities more accessible and affordable to learners. This will go a long way towards increasing our national gross enrolment ratio to 50% as per the goal of the NEP. Online degree delivery will further provide learners with the flexibility to learn what they desire, irrespective of their geographic location.
Some job roles that learners can expect to secure after program completion include that of a Business Analyst, Data Analyst, Data Scientist, Data Engineer, Digital Marketing Manager, Ecommerce Specialist, Cloud Developer, Cloud Engineer, Software Developer, etc. Additionally, the programs include practical projects that would help learners develop acumen in solving real-world business problems and gaining hands-on experience in the application of these skills. Upon the completion of the programs, learners will receive a master’s or bachelor’s degree from JAIN (Deemed-to-be University).
Mohan Lakhamraju , Founder and CEO, Great Learning, said, “At Great Learning, our mission is to provide students and working professionals access to high-quality education that can help transform and power their career ahead. With digital skills like Data Science, Analytics, AI, Machine Learning, Cloud Computing, Digital Marketing becoming critical building blocks for most roles across industries, it is essential to include them as a part of the curriculum. Through our collaborations with progressive academies like JAIN (Deemed-to-be University), we aim to bring cutting-edge industry relevance to students thus making them future-ready. We are confident that these will take their career trajectory to a whole new level and give them a competitive advantage.”
Dr. Raj Singh, Vice-Chancellor, JAIN (Deemed-to-be University), said, “In the era when the Universities as we have known them, are beginning to change and the future is certainly going to belong to micro-credentials offered by the best faculty from across the world, two categories of the audience will be the beneficiaries; the ones who need to upskill for emerging job profiles without leaving their current jobs in ‘anything, anywhere and anytime’ mode and those who haven’t had access to quality education yet. By serving these two categories of learners through the UGC-approved online degrees, JAIN (Deemed-to-be University) will not only help the Government to achieve a higher Gross Enrolment Ration (GER) but also make a sustainable impact on the society, as enshrined in its vision and mission. The specialized certifications by Great Learning in Industry 4.0 technologies will place the students a notch above their contemporaries.”
Great Learning will also provide placement assistance to the learners and connect them to the right job opportunities through its placement assistance program, GL Excelerate. The platform has partnered with 400+ leading organizations including JP Morgan, Barclays, Tata Consultancy Services, Accenture, HSBC, Bank of America, Capgemini, and Cognizant, which leverage the extensive talent pool available to fulfill their workforce requirements.
