Following in the footsteps of several management schools that have partnered with Indian institutes in the recent past to cater to MBA aspirants in the country, the Rutgers Business School (RBS), US, recently collaborated with HR College to deliver its Executive MBA programme in Mumbai. The 20-month programme, that will commence in October this year, is open to graduates from across the country with three years of work experience. Of the 18 modules of the programme, 16 will be taught in Mumbai and two at the RBS’ campus in New Jersey.
The part-time EMBA will equip students with knowledge in subjects including aggregate economic analysis, business statistics, law and legal reasoning, analytical techniques for decision making, international business, business strategy, international trade, brand management, etc.
Farrokh Langdana, global director of the EMBA programme, said, “With 50% of India’s population under the age of 30, there are tremendous opportunities for niche education and skills training for young graduates. There is currently a huge demand for fast-track, high-potential executives, trained to operate in different cultures, ready to lead, innovate and operate in various sectors from finance to marketing to economics and business analytics. Thus, we decided to bring the programme to India.”
With an intake of 40 seats, admission to the programme will be based on a personal interview with the candidate. The tuition fee, set at US $ 25,000, amounts to one fourth of the fee an EMBA at the college’s campus in the US.
“The entire programme will be taught by faculty from RBS who will travel to Mumbai every month for eight to 12 sessions conducted over a week. Students who wish to apply for the programme will be required to submit two recommendation letters, a personal statement and a letter of financial responsibility when applying for the programme,” elaborates Langdana.
HR College will host the programme at their campus in Mumbai. Successful participants will be granted a degree from RBS.
The school will also offer two, full tuition scholarships to deserving students. “The scholarship candidates will jointly be selected by a panel of academics from RBS and HR College,” says Indu Shahani, principal, HR College.
Apart from the basic the eligibility criteria, candidates must have good oral and written English skills. The GMAT score is not a mandatory requirement for admission to the course. However, students with a good score in the test will be given preference.
