Mahindra University launches School of Management

The plan is to start off with three UG programmes in 2021-22

The Mahindra University has launched its School of Management from the academic year 2021-2022 in partnership with the US-based Cornell University’s SC Johnson College of Business. The University has already roped in Ramakrishna Velamuri, a renowned academician in management education, to head the school as its Dean. The new school will offer three undergraduate programmes — BA in Economics and Finance, BBA in Digital Technologies, and BBA in Computational Business Analytics (an interdisciplinary programme with the École Centrale School of Engineering).

“The Mahindra University School of Management (MU - SoM) will benefit significantly from Cornell University’s expertise in curriculum development and faculty exchange programmes,” Yajulu Medury, Vice Chancellor of Mahindra University, has said in a statement on Monday. “The School of Management will be developed as a Centre for higher learning in management. We hope that we will be able to attract the most acclaimed talent pool from India and abroad and undertake the best research in emerging areas of contemporary interest,” he said.

“The plan is to begin with undergraduate programmes in the coming 2021-22 session and then add post-graduate and PhD programmes as well as management development programmes later,” Ramakrishna Velamuri said.
