Message from Joint Director

Welcome to GITAM School of International Business (GSIB). GSIB, a Business School with a legacy of more than two decades in the sphere of educating stake-holders in the area of International Business, has a strong track record of teaching, training, research and consulting. At a time when businesses are getting internationalized and even startups are being conceptualized with scalable international operations, the need for managers to run international businesses needn’t be over-emphasized. All the factors of production have become mobile or have lost relevance of geographical / economical borders. Hence conducting and managing business internationally had to be learnt germane to the economic environment. There lies the importance of educating ‘wanna-be- managers’ in ‘International Business’.

The Flagship Program of MBA (International Business) and the differentiated programmes we have created viz., MBA (International Banking & Finance), MBA (Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management) and PGDBA / Modular MBA (Business Analytics) in a completely choice-based credit system (CBCS) format, with bouquet of electives which include electives offered by Burgundy School of Business at Dijon, (France) and International University of Paris at Paris (France), give ample choice to the students to choose subjects of their choice. The learning opportunity is further invigorated by the right pedagogy spanning Cases, Projects, Activities and many learning-by-doing initiatives. Grooming the students in terms of aptitude and attitude runs as a fulcrum in all our interventions. The different tracks, including the one in entrepreneurship helps the students to focus as per their career aspirations. The Business Incubator GSIB-RenB within the campus, adds Philip to the students with entrepreneurial streak through mentoring and support. It is now up to the students to explore all the faculty have to offer and satiate their unquenchable thirst for managerial success. I have great pleasure in welcoming you all to the abode of learning and experience the wonderful learning environment at GSIB.

Prof. Krishna Kumar Narayanan, Ph.D.

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.

Ekta Tayal
(2012-2014) NTT Data, Hyderabad

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

If any one wants to make a career in International Business, I think GSIB is the platform. The intense curricular activities cover both global and national scenarios. The School has a solid faculty line-up. The ambience is perfect for quality education.

Subhashish Ray

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.
