MBA Pro Programme Director, Ajeenkya D Y Patil University


Ajeenkya D Y Patil University is a future-oriented private University based in Pune, India. We have a strong focus on real-world impact, delivering programmes that help our graduates construct meaningful careers in a digital economy that relate to the economic and development priorities of India and the wider world. We have a growing culture of research that is outward looking and impactful.   Recently shortlisted as one of the top 10 Universities to watch in India, the University currently delivers programmes across nine schools:

  • School of Management
  • School of Information Technology
  • School of Design
  • School of Hotel Management
  • School of Engineering
  • School of Architecture
  • School of Law

  • School of Film and Media

We place a heavy emphasis on creating a stimulating and charged environment, blending youthful vibrancy with experience and wisdom. We take a global point of view and engage with local reality, technology and tradition. We pair knowledge with rebellion and consistent questioning.

Last year, we set up our new MBA programme: the MBA Pro Programme is accessible, affordable, and global. Powered by world-class faculty, placements, curriculum, exposure, and network, it serves as a promising 5G gateway to success in global business leadership. The MBA Pro Programme is a nine-month, full-time Programme, run in partnership with De Montfort University, Dubai and the Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok. Students on the programme have an internationally immersive experience that sets them apart from the rest.

In an exciting period of development, we are seeking to appoint an inspiring new MBA Pro Programme Director.  The new Director will both oversee the delivery of the existing programme and work to grow it, bringing in their own expertise. We are looking for someone who is entrepreneurial and up for a challenge, with experience of the more operational side of programme management. They will have scope to develop and shape our existing MBA Pro Programme.

The appointee to this role is expected to work virtually primarily from wherever they are based globally.   It is imagined that time commitment will vary depending on teaching responsibilities and time of year but is likely to even out to around three days per week over time. A salary will be offered that is appropriate to the scale of experience brought by the appointee.

Visits to the campus on an appropriately regular basis will be expensed by the University.
