Master of Business Administration (MBA)

Course Highlights
  • Corporate Immersion Programme

The Corporate Immersion Programme is a unique three-month immersive experience with a company every student has to undergo which aims at providing live experiences in the field of management. This provides students immense practical learning and ropes in every aspect of running the business/services and also provides an opportunity for writing a contemporary project on a live business problem, identified with the help of the Mentor in the given organisation. This is a great launch pad for a successful career in Management for our students.


  • Village Immersion Programme

BIM has embarked upon an exploratory journey called Village Immersion Programme (VIP) from the year 2018-2019. The VIP at BIM is an innovative initiative in this direction. The aim of VIP is for a batch of students to live in a selected village for 10 days to understand the village life particularly the development needs of the village from the dimension of the community with whom they are working and to identify accordingly at least one problem at the village level and to come up with an innovative professional solution to the problem at hand, through an “Enterprise Plan‟. This process adds enormous value to our students from the practical point of view and from first hand immersion experience. This is an innovative exercise which has not been tried out anywhere in India in Business schools. Our new initiative is visionary and far reaching in terms of making the students empathetic (a fundamental shift in the attitude of MBA students) toward rural population and the difficulties they go through on a day to day basis; and also, visionary in terms of addressing the core requirement of a manager, i.e to identify a problem, understand the problem, understanding the root causes of the problem, separating the symptoms from real underlying problem, identifying all possible and feasible alternatives, evaluating these alternatives in the light of the expected outcome, and to come up with a solution which is practical, with reference to context and culture. The ultimate benefit that the society gets out of this exercise will be the individual economic empowerment.
