Programme details

Management education is deep rooted in India with a large number of universities offering MBA degrees. The MBA (Business Sustainability) programme at TERI University brings together this  knowledge capital in a set of courses that cover all traditional business administration disciplines such as marketing, finance, and strategy.

However, as the growth story in the developing world unfolds in these tumultuous times, both industrial and non-industrial actors are being challenged to take on new roles in the modern society. While industry, given its repository of leadership capital, is being called upon to play a much larger role in societal development, governments and civil society organizations are being encouraged to work efficiently to achieve social objectives. For industry, now more than ever, there will be persistent demand for sustainable and ethical practices, and accountability to consumers and the public at large. For governments, the challenge is of meeting development goals, while addressing environmental degradation. These challenges have increased the demand for new skills and the need to internalize, within the current management education framework, a high level of social consciousness and ethical behaviour.

Apart from creating a fresh cadre of managers who internalize such sustainability concerns in their professional careers, it is imperative that the existing leadership reorients itself to consumer needs, societal pressures and environmental imperatives, in order to ensure convergence of the concepts of profitability and cost competitiveness with the need to be more responsive.

Moreover, these leaders would need to work in progressively more diverse and multi-cultural contexts requiring a very different vision.

The MBA (Business Sustainability), intended for both fresh graduates and mid-career professionals, is an effort to align leadership in both industry and government to current contexts.

In doing so, this programme will enhance the scope and knowledge body of management education in India by imparting conventional management skills to students as also by helping them develop new perspectives related to the integration of sustainable and ethical practices into management education. The students of this programme will be well equipped to meet the demands of a fast changing world.

This is not just an MBA programme; it’s a MBA+ programme. This programme combines conventional MBA curriculum with new sustainability challenges that have direct impact on a firm’s future performance – financial and otherwise. The programme also leverages TERI’s knowledge capital in sustainable development to deepen the social and ethical consciousness of management education in India. The graduates of this programme will become competent business leaders with a holistic and long-term perspective for a world that demands new skillsand attitude.
