Masters in Business Administration (MBA)

As a highly coveted validation tool for career mobility and flexibility, the MBA program targets primarily junior and mid-level professionals who aspire to ultimately become captains and stewards of industry. The program seeks to prepare graduates for sustaining successful careers as leaders in the various functional business areas at different hierarchical levels of an organization. The broad-based curriculum is tailored for tackling the constantly evolving challenges of the global business landscape.

Summary

Through the core course, students will gain knowledge of current theory and techniques of the major business disciplines. In addition, students will gain the leadership capacity and teamwork skills for business decision making. There are five major areas of focus: competitive advantage through strategic alignment, fostering knowledge-based innovation, managing uncertainty and change, managing in real time and managing global hyper-competition.

The MBA curriculum integrates contemporary business fundamentals within the technology-driven world of business to inculcate and develop a multifaceted skill-set designed to augment several goals and objectives.  Thus, the program objectives reflect the development of traditional super-ordinate functional skills for offering business solutions.
