MBA Programme Chairperson's Message

Welcome to IFMR GSB’s MBA Programme!


Our MBA programme is designed to provide knowhow on managing markets and hierarchies, with an emphasis on decision making.  We complement this by training our students to build, nurture and harness networks.

We believe the ability to work in diverse teams is a key requirement in the workplace. Therefore, we pursue diversity in our mix of faculty and in our mix of students. 

We believe that the best managers are not functional specialists but all-rounders with strong fundamentals across the disciplines of management. Our coursework and extra-curricular activities are designed to challenge and nurture our students’ ability to apply their learning in simulated and real conditions which do not fit into functional boundaries.   

While your teachers remain available to you even after you complete the course, we strongly recommend that you invest in building relationships with your classmates, seniors, juniors, and other alumni towards building your professional network. For this, we provide multiple forums and opportunities.
