Message from the Chairperson Online MBA

The two-year degree-granting MBA programme offered through an effective mix of in-person classes and live online classes titled "Online MBA" by IIMA, endeavours to equip working management professionals with managerial skills. The launch of the programme in a hybrid setup is in sync with the increasing acceptance of flexible learning modes around the world.

The in-person sessions primarily focus on instilling intricate personal and group skills necessary for the effective management of complex organisations. The sessions delivered online focus on analytical tools and elements more amenable to analytical learning. The individual and group projects that are designed as part of the programme help the participants integrate the learning from different courses in addressing business and management problems. In tune with the case pedagogy adopted at IIMA, and the seasoned cohort of participants, the sessions shall strictly focus on the application of concepts to real-life business and entrepreneurial situations.

The programme participants shall get access to all the academic and non-academic facilities at IIMA throughout the programme. The high-performance computing lab and a well-stocked library with extensive digital collections shall significantly contribute to the learning of programme participants. The graduates of the programme shall become part of the widespread network of IIMA Alumni to facilitate their continued learning through interactions.
