Krea University continues next academic Trimester online

Educators and university administrators across the world and in India have been carefully planning for the resumption of on-campus learning and operations. At Krea, we are guided by our distinctive pedagogy, values and academic community that help us maintain our holistic approach to education, research, and student life at the University. At the same time, we place the highest priority on the health of our community, both on and off campus.

After extensive consultations and careful deliberations, the University has decided to deliver all courses online in the opening term of 2020-21 for both the IFMR Graduate School of Business (GSB) and the School of Interwoven Arts and Sciences (SIAS).

Our academic plan incorporates valuable insights gained from the successful transition to remote learning in summer 2020 implemented by both the IFMR Graduate School of Business (GSB) and SIAS. It also takes into account government directives at the central, state and city levels, and has been developed in accordance with UGC guidelines.

We place the highest priority on student well-being and community building. Our initiatives towards keeping the Krea family connected and learning together will continue as we move into the virtual realm.

Our commitment towards the academic and career advancement of our students is unwavering. We are moving forward as before with uninterrupted academic continuity, industry engagement, internship opportunities, global projects, research impact and student engagement.

Here is a glimpse of the past 4 months at Krea, and we look forward to even more exploration, interaction, engagement and learning in the coming months.
