The MBA Programme at LMTSM revolves around the principles of ethical decision making, inclusive human resources management, sustainable strategy and entrepreneurial development. The teaching philosophy underlying above principles is that future business managers and leaders will be working in a global environment and thus need to be nurtured with personalised attention. The MBA program thus focuses on developing an entrepreneurial mindset, analytical thinking, global orientation and consultative approach to solving the most challenging and complex problems faced by corporations and policy makers. The program is aimed at developing ethically responsible professionals; leaders who can communicate effectively to frame problems and provide solutions through social and commercial entrepreneurial activities. A mix of diverse teaching methods such as case studies, focused workshops, lectures and discussions, simulation games, and collaborative learning is adopted to provide a holistic learning experience.

The programme specifically attempts to:

  • Equip students with the required skills and knowledge in consultative and quantitative problem solving; and socially responsible ethical decision making.
  • Develop leadership capabilities to act as agents of change in promoting and developing social and commercial entrepreneurial activities.
  • Nurture business professionals who are aware about the globalised nature of contemporary business, culturally sensitive about managing business networks and relations, and understand the relationship between self, society and business environment. This is achieved by specifically designed activities and courses that encourage students to learn act and reflect.
