I-Global MBA

SME offers a two-year, fully residential, Master of Business Administration (MBA) Programme with twin tracks – MBA (Analytics) and MBA (Global). 

The programme aims to groom budding managers for effectively performing in a global and vague, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) environment. We believe that a budding manager should have the skills that are required by companies and an entrepreneurial mindset. They should have the motivation and skill for lifelong learning, as the skills that are in demand today, will become obsolete in a few years and new jobs will be created. Our MBA programme is designed to create job-ready graduates with an entrepreneurial mindset, and a thirst and skills for life-long learning. It is designed by distinguished faculty from Shiv Nadar Institution of Eminence (Deemed to be University), Harvard Business School, The Haas School of Business, U.C. Berkeley and IIM Calcutta. It is benchmarked against the very best MBA programs in the world. Our faculty use innovative pedagogy to achieve the desired outcome. We have developed the pedagogy that is required to achieve that goal while allowing full autonomy to each faculty member to improve on that pedagogy.
