Programme Architecture

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. It is in the process of revising its curriculum, once again. Key highlights of the new curriculum 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 offers 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.
