The primary objective of the IFMR MBA program is to facilitate students to become successful managers. To achieve this objective, we lay a strong foundation in the management by offering a set of core courses in the areas of Data Science & Information Systems, Economics, Finance, Accounting, & Quantitative Finance, Marketing, Organizational Behaviour & Human Resources, Operations Management, and Strategic Management.

Interwoven Academic Rigour

The IFMR GSB first-year curriculum now includes courses that inter-weave skills across management disciplines and liberal arts. Students learn about the challenges facing an organization in the real world and develop skills to effectively manage them. These interwoven courses are co-taught by faculty members from multiple disciplines, as well as industry experts. Ethics, Communications, Design Thinking, and the Capstone Simulation are offered under the interwoven curriculum.
