    The MBA programme (for Working Executives) at IIMK has been a deflection point in my life and career. The ever dynamic but disruptive nature of modern industrial environment requires someone to continuously learn, unlearn and relearn. The experienced and dedicated faculty, diverse and multi skilled participants, modern and interactive learning programme etc at IIMK provides the perfect launch pad for managers to move to higher trajectory in the corporate or entrepreneurial world.The great learning experience here helped me to understand and work on my knowledge and skill gaps and provided me the confidence to take up new challenges and higher responsibilities

    J Jijo G John

    Owner & CEO,

    Pursuing MBA was on top of mind since my first management role, but I did not want to take a break from work. With the MBA programme (for Working Executives) offered by IIMK at Kochi campus I could study full time while working full time. The courses focused on people, community and social enterprises apart from the usual MBA curriculum challenged us to think diferently about business, our communities and ourselves.


    Global Head of HR & Centre of Excellence

    Personally, the course helped me for a paradigm shift in my professional track. My entire 17 years of experience was in techno-functional roles and in Project/ Program Management. This course helped me to deeply understand the importance of People proposition in business growth and gave me the confidence to take up the role of Global Head of HR & Centre of Excellence in SunTec itself.Practical wisdom of our Professors and fellow-participants always made the learning quick and fruitful.

    Nitin Nair

    General Manager

    The MBA Programme (for Working Executives) at Kochi campus is very special to me for a couple of reasons - the academic rigor, the variety of electives letting you person alise the course and experience, the interactive pedagogy, the varied profile of other participants as well as the friendly and knowledgeable professors. The rich network of relationships built during the two years of the course is a bonus and make it truly memorable.
