The selection process will have three layers. The first part of the MBA program will take place at the Neemrana Campus of NIIT University, followed by internship at WNS, under the supervision of the NU faculty.

As part of the collaboration, the graduating students will be placed in key positions in the analytics practice.

“WNS partners with over 200 clients across the globe, and sees analytics becoming increasingly important for sharper and smarter decision-making. While we have a large Research & Analytics practice of over 2,500 professionals, we are further looking to build on the talent supply with a customized and specialized intervention like this program.  The chosen students will join the WNS family skilled with a high-end program that will change the course of their career for a lifetime,” said Keshav R. Murugesh, Group CEO, WNS.

The first batch of the MBA programwill commence in June 2016, and information will be available online from Nov. 24, 2015 at www.niituniversity.in. Eligibility criteria will include graduation with Mathematics as one of the subjects, followed by at least two years of work experience.
