MBA Overview

Global Platform


The MBA (Master of Business Administration) is the world's most sought-after postgraduate degree as it is an imperative stepping stone towards a successful managerial, leadership and entrepreneurial career.

In the era in which we live, the reach and the scale of operations are necessities as companies are diversified and multi-faceted. This global thinking and local planning increase the scope of an MBA substantially as an education in management provides a basket of the requisite knowledge, skills and mind-set needed to survive and to succeed in this demanding environment. 


In this globalised and liberalised environment it provides a passport towards :   

  • Wider career options
  • Superior employment positions
  • Faster career growth
  • Enhanced income potential


Graduates from any discipline (Commerce,  Engineering, Humanities, Management, Science, Technology, etc.) are eligible. Aspirants can take the entrance examinations in their final year of graduation so as to enable them to pursue MBA without a break in their academic life.


While the list of specialisations offered by business schools is expanding continually, the broad areas that the students can specialise in are :

  • Marketing
  • Finance
  • Human Resources
  • Systems
  • Operations

In the first year, a student is usually exposed to all the facets of management and to all the above functional areas. The choice of specialisation is usually made in the second year based on one's competence, aspirations and interests.

Towards a successful managerial, leadership and entrepreneurial career
