On April 20, Greater Noida based Shiv Nadar University, India’s leading research driven, multidisciplinary university and reigning young University of the Year [FICCI Awards 2016, announced admissions for its MBA programme open. In addition to the existing iGlobal MBA programme and the Bachelor’s in Management Studies [BMS], the university is poised to launch a Ph.D. programme in Management this year. The programmes are being offered under the aegis of the School of Management and Entrepreneurship (SME) in the academic session commencing July, 2017.
The iGlobal MBA programme, unveiled in 2016, was very well received in its inaugural year, and 48 students were selected from a large applicant pool. Designed by distinguished faculty from Shiv Nadar University, Harvard Business School, The Haas School of Business, U.C. Berkeley and IIM Calcutta, the programme has many distinctive features designed to prepare students for global careers and entrepreneurial success.
Given the high demand for this course, the SME has broadened the eligibility criteria for students applying this year. The scholarships offered have been made more lucrative to attract high potential students and/or entrepreneurs with work-experience and well-developed business ideas.
All the postgraduate management programmes from SME are specifically designed to ensure that students are equipped with the knowledge and competencies they need to flourish in the Digital Age anywhere they choose to live and work in the world. For example, the iGlobal MBA is benchmarked against the very best programmes in the world; it provides opportunities for global exposure to students before they graduate via semesters abroad at prestigious partner universities, internships and projects, distinguished visiting faculty and a unique cross-cultural leadership curriculum.
Comments Dr. Shubhro Sen, director, School of Management and Entrepreneurship, “Our programme designs are centred on success in a technology disrupted, rapidly changing global business environment and the many exciting placement options available to those with the requisite training. The curriculum includes personalised strength assessments and coaching as well as the flexibility to develop deep specialisations and career tracks in multiple high demand areas. With India’s GDP continuing to grow at one of the highest rates worldwide, the needs of the hour for India and especially India Inc. are management programmes that are tightly aligned with evolving industry requirements. All SME programmes are specifically designed to address that gap in a compelling and differentiated manner. A key USP is the multidisciplinary foundation and rich suite of electives available to MBA candidates. As such, students can acquire further depth in hot technology areas like big data and predictive analytics from one of our Schools of Engineering and Natural Sciences or take social science electives directly with scholars in our School of Humanities and Social Sciences.”
Besides the existing programmes, SME will offer a Ph.D programme in Management this year, which is intended for students and professionals seeking careers in academia, research institutions and consultancy. Being part of a multidisciplinary university with a strong focus on research, the SME’s Ph.D. programme would also draw upon the strength of other schools to develop a strong, analytical and rigorous core that would be attractive to doctoral students from within the country as well as other countries in the region. An Executive Ph.D. option will also be available for professionals who wish to continue working while pursuing a doctorate in Business Administration.
