Business is an ever evolving phenomenon and so is business school education; IMT Ghaziabad continues to strive to raise its own bar in terms of content and pedagogical practices. Key highlights of the new curriculum for the batch of 2019-21 would be cross functional core courses like Design Thinking, Negotiation Skills, and Cross Functional Simulation; these courses add inventiveness, nimbleness, and flexibility to the students’ problem solving skillset for the emerging business environment and groom them to function as a leader in the long run.

As a socially responsible institution, IMT Ghaziabad offer its students an action-based course on Sustainability and Social Responsibility, aimed at learning by doing, while simultaneously serving the needs of society. It requires the students to work with the community through on-ground projects. The idea is to understand how people who are different from us live their lives, to appreciate contribution as a value and to know how each of the decisions we take in business impacts society.
