Revised MBA curriculum introduced.
In 1992, the faculty introduced an innovative new MBA curriculum integrating newly developed “theme” courses with the “core” courses for which the School had been noted. Cutting across the traditional disciplines, the themes reflected the central issues of management at the time – globalization, cultural diversity, total quality management, ethics and the environment. Integrated with the functional courses, the themes ensure relevance, broaden the context and sharpen the focus at the same time.
The new curriculum also incorporated a broader emphasis on people and communication skills, redressing a longstanding imbalance between technical skills, on the one hand, and leadership skills on the other. The overriding objective of the program was to prepare managers to successfully manage and compete in a global market and a changing society.
