AACSB Accredited and globally ranked Jagdish Sheth School of Management (JAGSoM) has launched an MBA program designed for new age professional roles that require creativity, innovation, design thinking and imagination.
Learn instruments, be a vocalist, trek on the mountains, and still be Industry 4.0 professional. The idea is to have a broader vision to prepare the graduates for a 100-year life and create an agenda for self-discovery and an ability of ‘learning to learn’.
Organizations are getting more organized, digitized, and differentiation is becoming as difficult as pinning a medal on a shadow. There is a growing need for professionals in managerial roles who can leap headfirst into a problem rather than spend time, effort, money in ruminating, researching and treading the beaten path – the future needs managers who move quickly beyond analytical thinking and are courageous and confident enough to act in unprecedented manners to solve the problem. Think Steve Jobs, think Musk, think Branson. These are living examples of business leaders who are strong right brain thinkers, too!
New Age companies aiming for diversity and non-linear thinking will find graduates of this program the right fit to bring in the desired balance specially in emerging industries like Media, OTT, Design, Content, Marcom and Entertainment.
The program will groom professionals to be right-brain thinkers and doers, by bringing in sensorial elements such as design, storytelling, empathy, symphony, play and meaning.

“As the world shifted from industrial age to knowledge age and now moves towards conceptual age; creativity, empathy, symphony, play and imagination has become essential in the new era. Mainstream MBA programs not only admit but also groom their graduates for skills of logic, analysis, and focus. This unique program will groom professionals who would complement the left-brain professionals, by bringing in sensory elements like design, storytelling, empathy, symphony, play and meaning. New age companies aiming for diversity and non-linear thinking will find graduates of this program the right fit to bring in the desired balance.”
According to the World Economic Forum’s Report on Top 10 skills required for 2025, “Analytical thinking and innovation” tops the list; “Creativity, Originality and Initiative” is 5th in the list, and “Reasoning, Problem-solving and Ideation” is at #10.
In other words, 3 out of Top 10 Skills that will determine a student’s employability and success as a Business Manager starting 2025, revolve around creativity and innovative problem-solving. QED.
Differentiation is becoming as tough as hanging a medal on a shadow as organizations become more structured and digital. There is an increasing demand for managers who can dive headfirst into a problem rather than ruminating, researching, and treading the well-worn path – the future requires managers who can move quickly beyond analytical thinking and are courageous and confident enough to act in novel ways to solve problems.
Graduates of this curriculum will be ideal for new age firms seeking diversity and non-linear thinking, particularly in developing areas such as media, OTT, design, content, marketing, and entertainment.
The campus provides comfortable shared accommodation for the students. The student residences have been designed to provide co-living spaces for nurturing lifelong networks with peer students. After all, friendship and co-living help one develop respect for individuality, build tolerance and teach coexistence.
Each student is provided with a uniquely designed self-contained living unit consisting of a comfortable bed, storage space and cosy tucked-in study space
I like the aura of this place that is situated in the midst of the Sahyadri range. The weather is good for me to focus on my studies and other endeavours. I play badminton in the evening, and spend time with my friends as well. I can say that I am developing on various aspects of life.

The course focuses on developing execution skills of management students by focusing on ‘Learning by Doing’ as managers and future leaders. Students are expected to understand the role and responsibility of a manager, cognitive ambidexterity of an administrator and agile leadership style of an effective leader while facing the ambiguity of the VUCA world.
