Krea University offers a 3-year undergraduate B.A. (Hons) and B.Sc. (Hons) programmes, with the option of pursuing a fourth year. During the course of the 3-year programme, students may choose to pursue a combination of“Majors/Joint-Majors”,“Minors” and “Concentrations” offered. Details of the fourth year programme will be released soon.
IFMR Society, the sponsor of the university, has been operating the IFMR Graduate School of Business on a 40-acre campus, accommodating over 400 students at Sri City, Andhra Pradesh. Krea’s programmes have commenced on this campus. Krea’s main campus will be spread over 200 acres in Sri City, 55 kms north of Chennai. The Phase 1 of the campus is expected to be in place by 2024.
We are strongly committed to creating a safe and secure campus for our students. The campus is enclosed by well-lit perimeter fencing topped with barbed wire and all access gates including pathways have 24×7 security staff. There are CCTV cameras with recording systems installed at critical areas around campus for the safety of students. All external personnel and visitors are issued ID cards and all vehicles are checked during entry and exit. In addition, all campus fire and security measures are overseen by retired senior personnel from the Police and Armed Forces. The security team at Krea also works proactively with the local police establishment to provide a safe environment for students within the larger vicinity of the campus.
At present, the Krea campus is operating subject to social distancing norms and restrictions on movement outside the campus. Since August 2021, senior students are returning to campus in batches and have access to campus resources. However, the classes will continue in an online mode. In-class instruction as well as resumption of normal campus life will depend on external conditions and government policies. We do expect the 2022-25 batch to have full access to residential facilities and in-class instruction.
