All programs taught at the School are backed by the unique curriculum and pedagogy for holistic learning, fostering a robust entrepreneurial mindset and a discipline for critical thinking, combined with a focus on practically relevant and implementable problem-solving acumen. This learning outcome of knowing-doing-and-being is nurtured through a deep and wide engagement of the School with the industrial and entrepreneurial ecosystem in its neighborhood and beyond.


The distinguishing factor of SME’s undergraduate programs is the multidisciplinary nature of the curriculum that provides students an immersive yet flexible and well-rounded exposure of the various domains of management. This vastly enriches the knowledge and understanding that students gain in these formative years.The focus of the undergraduate programs is on inculcating in students a strong application-oriented foundation, which is achieved through a judicious blend of classroom teaching methods and real-world problem-solving experience.


We live in a deeply interconnected world with a wide-variety of devices and channels supporting unprecedented exchanges of ideas and information. Managers must cope with rapid change in a volatile and complex global business environment in which seemingly distant global events affect company strategies and policies at the other end of the world. This requires analytical and cognitive capabilities of a new order as well as deep 'action' learning that is very distinct from the programs offered by traditional B-Schools.


The Ph.D. program at SME is structured to enhance the inquisitive knowledge in pursuit of advancing the field of study with new knowledge.
