Our Program Goals


  • We believe that what is good for the world should be good for the nation and what is good for the nation should be good for its citizens. We want to groom a generation of thinkers, practitioners and leaders who are adept at solving both local and global problems with utmost global sensitivity. Global sensitivity has a much broader scope than just cultural sensitivity. It encompasses everything from rules and regulations to economic situations to geographic peculiarities.

  • We base our philosophy of educating scholarly practitioners on the following two assertions:

    • “Nothing is as practical as a good theory” by Kurt Lewin

    • “Nothing is as dangerous as a bad theory” by Sumantra Ghoshal

We want our graduates to be able to understand the power of good science and at the same time recognize its limitations. We pay special attention to generating new ideas and synthesizing and integrating existing ideas for applying them to solve real world problems.

  • We want every graduate to have a strong entrepreneurial orientation with an emphasis on doing social good. Irrespective what kind of enterprises they create or work for, a strong orientation toward societal good must be the starting point of any decision they make. We believe only the right balance between social and economic good can produce sustainable businesses. Also we consider social entrepreneurial mind-set as synonymous with sustainability mind-set.
