The Two-year full-time Programme in International Business is designed to empower students to become successful business professionals in the challenging global scenario. In an age of blurred geographical frontiers, the Programme offers practical insights into the international dimension of every business function. With a holistic approach in delivering the Programme, the curriculum and pedagogy are thoughtfully calibrated to develop cross-functional capabilities, leadership skills, foreign language proficiency and cross-cultural appreciation. The value-based conduct and emotional maturity are given prominence besides knowledge acquisition. After the two years, the students leave the portals of GSIB with a globally integrated and innovative mindset.
MBA(International Banking & Finance)
De-regulation, liberalization and integration of financial markets coupled with the development of innovative and complex financial products have changed the landscape of International Banking and Finance in the twenty-first century. The globalization of financial markets enabled businesses to go global for both funding requirements operations. International Financial Management and Foreign Exchange Management have gained prominence in the day to day operations of not only financial institutions but also corporates. The global financial markets have thus become an effective conduit for high volumes of cross-border capital flows leveraged by the IT and also for global systemic risk.
This has necessitated the need for professionals who can anticipate and mitigate systemic risks to ensure that the global credit channel does not dry up. The US subprime crisis and Barclay’s LIBOR manipulation scandal are evidences suggesting the need for financially prudent professionals who could conduct ethical banking, adhere to regulation, manage risk, and design innovative financial products. An IBF student from GSIB is endowed with all the above mentioned capabilities alongside the necessary knowledge to cater to domestic as well as international financial markets.
The Two Year MBA (IBF) has considered these changing needs and the future requirements of the industry in designing the most contemporary curriculum for the course,benchmarketing with the best of the course of its kind.
The Programme seeks to achieve the following objectives:
MBA(Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management)
Efficient Global Logistics & Supply Chain Management (GLSCM) is a key driving force for higher bottom line profits and satisfied customers in this globally competitive business environment of the twenty-first century. The supply-chain superiority enables businesses to differentiate themselves effectively from their competitors.
An effective execution of the two crucial functions of GLSCM,– the Physical function, which is concerned with planning, designing, production, storage, and transportation, and the Market Mediation function, which is concerned with ensuring variety of products that meet customer expectations reaching the market place on time – necessitates the seamless integration of new product design and development,manufacturing, logistics, support, and services processes.
It is essential for GLSCM professionals to benchmark global best practices and performance metrics, have an understanding of key customer service criteria, and to use decision support tools for optimal network design and management.
Taking the above issues into consideration, this Programme provides an in-depth understanding of the plan, design,management, and coordination of real-time Logistics and Supply Chain Management. The pedagogy is enhanced through the insights of expert faculty and practitioners from domestic and international arenas. The courses are designed to provide required skills and knowledge for the Logistics and Supply Chain professionals of tomorrow.
The Programme seeks to achieve the following objectives:
From early 90s, there has been growing interest in entrepreneurship in India. The trigger for this growing interest is Liberalization, Privatization, and Globalization (LPG) which India has been pursuing to enhance its growth. But it has assumed significant importance only during the past two years under the leadership of Sri. Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India who said : “I see start-ups, technology and innovation as exciting and effective instruments for India’s transformation”. Start-up India is a flagship initiative of the government of India, intended to build a strong eco-system to promote entrepreneurship in the country that will lead to economic growth and generate large-scale employment opportunities. Investors, business owners, professionals and academicians are invited to partner this movement in order to accelerate the pace of development in India. I am greatly delighted to inform that GITAM School of International Business has also participated in this movement to provide for entrepreneurship in India. The School has created a separate track in all its academic programmes for all those who wish to opt out of placement to start their own ventures. In simple terms, students would have the advantage of mentoring in the GSIB-RenB Incubator by the best of professionals in India. This is how success for entrepreneurship is guaranteed in GITAM School of International Business. I welcome all those who would like to take Leadership Positions in Industry as well as those who would like to pursue their dreams through entrepreneurships. GSIB has made the best of arrangements for both ends.

2013-2015 (Inrythms Ltd)
After graduating as an electrical engineer, I joined GITAM School of International Business to pursue MBA in International Business. This program has helped me to sense the fast changing business requirements throughout the globe and developing resilient businesses to adept to these changes. This insight developed an interest in me to develop skills pertaining to analytic’s and business process optimization. The course also conveyed the shift in business paradigm that factors
of production no more create sustainable competitive advantage and businesses today have become more customer centric. The only way for businesses to define their distinctive competitive abilities is to understand customers better. With human-technology interactions increasing profoundly, huge amounts of data are being captured and analyzed everyday which gives firsthand information about the key touch points of the customers. This is the avenue where analytics play a predominant role.

It was great experience being at GSIB these two years, I have learnt many things and now when I look back I experience the change in me. I improved in terms of public speaking, anchoring, organizing and many more. I can also now recall that during my first presentation I was shivering with stage fear. I have learnt very good problem handling skills, stress management and how to meet deadlines. My internship was like a turning point which gave me a very good exposure and learning experience it always added towards my learning and helped me to learn and become better with every step. Main thing in GSIB is about placement, and in my first chance I got placed in NTT Data and I am very much satisfied with my Job and my parents also thank GSIB. The placement in GSIB was very good and almost all students got placed in good companies such as NTT Data, MAERSK, ITC, AXIS Bank and many such. I would thank all the faculties and non teaching staff for making me to reach this level

I feel the best part of a student exchange is the opportunity to meet so many students from different countries and in that way the thinking horizon increases tremendously. I would say student exchange (they call it Erasmus here) is something one must experience will be very helpful for personal growth and coming out of the comfort and living in a foreign country to manage everything by your own with a smiling face is something one gets to learn and practice.
