Vision and Mission

quatation icon

Our Vision

To provide top-quality management education that prepares students to be ethically grounded, to be highly skilled in integrated reasoning and to be effective leaders of enterprises.

Our Mission

  • To provide our students with a vibrant intellectual foundation of theory, knowledge, skills and perspectives, enriched by a unique liberal arts foundation, that enhances their managerial and leadership effectiveness in an emerging digitally connected global audience and market
  • To prepare students in integrated reasoning so that they are the preferred choice of the employers and become successful leaders of enterprises—existing ones and the ones they create
  • To inculcate in students the habits of mind—critical, abstractive, analytical, quantitative, integrative and ethical—needed to navigate accelerating change, and the increasing complexity of interdependence in business and society to meet the competing demands of diverse stakeholders and thrive as professionals

 

Message from the Dean

quatation icon

Dr. V. Anantha Nageswaran (Ananth):

IFMR Graduate School of Business at Krea University – Creating managers and leaders for tomorrow’s world with Integrated Reasoning and ethical values on a Liberal Arts Foundation.

John Maynard Keynes, the celebrated British economist, intellectual and philosopher once described the ideal economist. Paraphrasing him, we can describe the ideal manager by replacing his original ‘master-economist’ with ‘manager’:

The manager must possess a rare combination of gifts…. He must be mathematician, historian, statesman, philosopher — in some degree. He must understand symbols and speak in words. He must contemplate the particular, in terms of the general, and touch abstract and concrete in the same flight of thought. He must study the present in the light of the past for the purposes of the future. No part of man’s nature or his institutions must be entirely outside his regard. He must be purposeful and disinterested in a simultaneous mood, as aloof and incorruptible as an artist, yet sometimes as near to earth as a politician.”

As an integral part of the newly-established Krea University, which is re-imagining liberal-arts education, the IFMR Graduate School of Business is poised to re-shape business education in India—and beyond.

By re-visioning Business education to meet the demands of a growing, globalizing India, IFMR Graduate School of Business seeks to prepare students to face the challenges of managing and leading enterprises that will power a vibrant 21st-century economy that begins the restoration of India’s old glory.

It is a cliché but true that change is the only constant. While it is true at all times, it is truer in some periods than in others. For nearly three decades, since the early 1980s, the world marched to the beat of globalization, market-based economics, freer trade, growing mobility of capital and labour across borders, advances in computing and communications, and the spread of democracy as Communism failed and the Berlin Wall fell. The heyday of Western management and business education coincided with this phase. The terrorist attacks on US soil of 11th September, 2001 were the first disturbance to this post-WWII global order. Two wars and financial profligacy (excesses?) brought on the financial and economic crisis of 2008. The New World Order epoch ended, or it seems so.

IFMR Graduate School of Business offers an unparalleled educational opportunity that, at once, is comprehensive and interwoven, brings together faculty and students with diverse talents and backgrounds, and fosters learning that serves employability and lifelong learning.

I welcome you to join me in creating and in enjoying that experience.
