The PES Strategy

Paid Experience driven Study program

MBA@PES delivers a truly holistic experience to students. The first year is entirely devoted to core courses that lay the foundation to assimilate specialization courses in the second year. Running in parallel with the core courses are the Harvard Business School foundation courses, designed to give one the fluency, skills and confidence needed to fully participate and succeed in the world of business.

The summer term is when students experience the residential programs at the scenic campuses of IIT-Madras and NISM at Mumbai, which deliver programs in Business Analytics and Financial Markets respectively. Also, tucked in this term are Career courses which considerably enhance placement opportunities.

The second year of the program is truly adventurous. PES strongly believes that learning is complete only when students spend meaningful time within the industry. A substantial part of the program time is designed to bring about industry exposure through paid internships. This is also the time when placements happen, and we encourage companies to hire students from the day an offer is made. Interwoven into the second year are specialization courses that are held on weekends, designed to synchronise with the week-day routine at the workplace.

As the world turns digital, we design our programs with an ear to the ground. Every course is designed to address a component of the digital economy. The following specializations in MBA build a strong digital fortress around the core courses.

Business Analytics

specialization will prepare students in Data Analytical skills for which there is intense demand, taught through SAS, Tableau and R

Capital Markets

To administer these contemporary programs, the department is backed by world class facilities. The Analytics center is a cutting-edge lab with software such as IBM’s COGNOS, apart from InfoSphere and SAS, world leaders in Analytics software. A state-of-the-art finance lab complements class-room teaching.

Career Growth

Apart from formal academic tutoring, student learning is enhanced by several facilitating stimuli. The specializations catering to individual interests, mapping high growth areas, result in better placement of students. The continuous curriculum updating reflects our desire to remain relevant and one step ahead of the industry.

To bolster teaching, research publications are mandatory for all faculty members. Taking this commitment to foster research and publication in all areas of management further, the department publishes a bi-annual journal, PES Business Review. This journal is indexed in i-scholar, J-gate, EBSCO and ProQuest, making PES Business Review a journal of repute and high standing.

Online education is the way forward and likely to become a major source of learning in the future. MBA@PES integrates Harvard online education with the curriculum, one of the very few universities in India to do so.

Academic Partnerships
