I joined this course with the hope to understand how the world fits beyond my domain knowledge. Let's just say I received more than what I could bargain for from the capable faculty, my peer group and the case study based teaching pedagogy which would have a variety of real-world scenarios hurled at us which nurtured both adaptive thinking as well as a widerperspective. Apart from this, we have the alumni community which has come to my rescue for more than one occasion

I have always believed that purpose of education is to break shackles, and that is exactly what the programme has done for me. The course work was tailor-made, with current examples from local and Global businesses. The brilliantly choreographed business case discussions were something to look forward to. Professors are always accessible and extremely supportive. No limits are set and exploration is encouraged by everyone in the system. Curiousity and attention to the right detail is always rewarded in the programme and it quickly becomes a habit. I left with a much better outlook about the world and a wealth of connections to navigate through it.
The two year MBA programme (for Working Executives) o~ered by IIMK provided me with invaluable opportunity to be exposed to parts of a business organisation beyond my area of specialisation and get holistic understanding of business world. The stimulation and interactions I had with my professors - who are world class and my classmates -who came from diverse industries, made learning fun, captivating and memorable. It was good to be a student once again after a gap of 12 years and feel blessed to have chosen IIMK for this.
Even though I always wanted to do an MBA course, it did not materialize before for various reasons, the most important one being the need to take a break or some hours o~ my job to do the course. However, after turning into an entrepreneur, I got some additional flexibility in planning my time. And around that time, I also got a chance to review the MBA course (for Working Executives) at IIMK Kochi campus and found it as a compelling proposition, which made me join the course. At the end of the course, I felt so happy that I took that decision as the course brought in a paradigm shift in my whole approach to business. Earlier, I used to do a lot of my business decision making with the help of intuition. The course taught me a scientific and analytical approach to business backed by several proven tools, which can help me take better decisions, thus increasing the chance of success of the business that I am involved in. The applied learning methods used in the course such as case studies, simulations, and projects, and the breadth of extensive class room discussions with active participation from a class full of experienced people from diverse backgrounds really helped the learning.
MBA (for Working Executives) at IIMK Kochi Campus was a great learning experience for me. The program helped broaden my personality, outlook towards my profession and management at large. Classroom discussions and learning were unique due to the experienced and knowledgeable Professors and more so due to diverse batchmates in terms of experience and industry. Exposure to the vast and rich alumni network is something that I cherish forever.
