Programme Overview

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.

 

Our MBA Program Goal

Our Program goal is to develop globally sensitive, scholarly practitioners with social entrepreneurial mindset.

  • 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 SumantraGhoshal 
    - 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 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 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 every graduate to have a strong entrepreneurial orientation with an emphasis on doing social good. Irrespective of 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 that a right balance between social and economic good can produce sustainable businesses. Also, we consider social entrepreneurial mindset as synonymous with sustainability mindset.
