Dean's Message

Good students, good professors, good learning environment, and good industry interaction – this is the recipe for good education. Our promise to you, dear Students, is to help you discover yourselves in the two years you are with us. Management education for effective global leadership, and mentoring by professors and industry leaders, are two benefits that you will get in The National Management School (NMS).

Our professors will have the opportunity to own the institution and thus will be committed to the cause of the School. All of them have a doctoral degree from reputed Universities, mostly from the United States. Several of them hold Chair Professorships in their Universities. The academic rigor that they bring to the classroom will help refine your thought processes.

Our students also benefit from the panel of CXOs who lead large organizations, be it in industry, government or society. The interaction with these CXOs happens in various formats, either as part of the curriculum or outside. All these CXOs have promised to spend one full day in the year with our students, on campus. The industry relevance that the CXOs add to our curriculum will help you to apply theoretical frameworks.

We are seeking to admit students whose aspirations are high and whose achievements demonstrate such aspirations. We are looking for candidates who are in the top ten percentile based on the CAT exam or the GMAT. However, our admission is based on a complete profile of the applicant. While academic brilliance is important, we believe that active participation in performing arts or sports or demonstrated leadership in activities, adds to a complete profile. We believe that you learn best in a challenging environment where each one of you learns from the other.

Academic discipline, industry experience, and global perspective – this is what we will deliver. You will see these three aspects reflected in our curriculum. Our professors come from international universities; our CXOs come with global experience operating around the world. This helps provide a global perspective in the classroom that is unparalleled.
