MBA Programme at IMS

The full-time pro-grammes have been designed for ambitious young graduates who wish to achieve long-term pro- fessional goals through an industry-ready curriculum. The vision is to nurture com- petent graduates with pro- ductive skill and traits such as strong domain expertise, professional integrity, service mindedness, leadership, en- trepreneurial orientation and social consciousness. The programme is spread over a period of two years and is divided into four semesters. The courses in the first year are all compulsory, as they provide a balanced foundation in the basic disciplines of management. After completion of the second semester, the students undertake a six- week Summer Internship in industry for gaining hands-on experience. As a part of the Summer Internship project, students submit a detailed project report and make a formal presentation before a review panel consisting of faculty members and business executives from industry and academics. The second year courses are a mix of compulsory (core) courses and electives in the specialization areas of students' choice.

Elective Courses Offered : Marketing, Finance, HR & IT

At the end of the second semester, each student is required to take up a six-week internship assignment with an organization of choice. This is a compulsory component of the curriculum. The Internship has dual objectives. In the first place, it allows a student to apply the concepts learnt in the classroom and hone his or her ability to define, diagnose, analyze and solve business problems. Secondly, it provides a student a glimpse into the existing corporate environment and an appreciation of the interpersonal skills required to excel in the workplace.
