Mumbai, the city of dreams, will now have space to accommodate more dreams. The Malad Kandivali Education Society (MKES) – one of the oldest and most prestigious educational institutions in suburban Mumbai, with some of the most prominent educational institutions across diverse streams like Commerce, Arts, Science (IT/CS) and Law – has diversified its portfolio by launching the MKES Business School.
MKES Business School – A rich legacy. A bright future.
With its long legacy of educating generations of Indian students since 1942, The Malad Kandivali Education Society has now forayed into Business and Management studies with the vision of empowering graduates to ‘Think beyond‘ and the industry-ready management professionals.
The business school is now offering 3 full time PGDM programmes. These are 2 year full time programmes in Business Administration (with specialisation in Finance, Marketing, Human Resources, Operations, General Management & Entrepreneurship), Business Analytics and Financial Services.
All their programmes are skill-based and provide hands-on learning experiences through a range of projects and collaborations with real-time exposure to the market. These courses are not only approved by the AICTE (All India Council of Technical Education), but also feature an industry-centric curriculum that keeps students up-to-date and at par with the demands of the industry today.
What students can expect from this new-age Business School
Backed by a distinguished faculty of industry practitioners, a unique mentoring system, an innovative pedagogy, well-furnished learning facilities and a campus with a slew of extracurricular and cultural activities, the MKES Business School is all geared up to give its students a holistic educational experience.
The school puts all its efforts into helping students upskill and get closer to their professional goals. Its programmes focus on first-hand learning and include regular industrial and rural visits with a slew of capstone projects. These serve as a culminating academic and intellectual experience. Alongside academics, students are mentored individually by faculty members and industry veterans. The Business School has lined up a series of guest lecturers called the Leadership Series where they’ll be guided by leading national and international CXOs. They also have Personal Growth Labs that teach advanced professional and soft skills.
Business & Management studies. Simplified.
Most Business Schools determine the eligibility to apply for their management courses based on students’ scores in Common Entrance Tests like CAT, XAT, GMAT, etc. In addition to accepting the results of these entrance exams, MKES Business School has also devised its own in-house aptitude test – the MKAT (MKES Aptitude Test) for those who have missed the common entrance tests due to some reason or the other.
Besides, MKES Business School also offers scholarships for deserving students and provides bank loan assistance for students.
Accommodation won’t be a problem either! The MKES Business School looks forward to welcoming a broad spectrum of students not only from Mumbai, but across all states and offers accommodation assistance. Last, but not least, it also has a dedicated Placement Cell that ensures its students find employability and not just make a living, but fulfil all their goals in life.
