About IMBA

Integrated Master of Business Administration (IMBA)

Programme Duration: 5 Years

Integrated Master of Business Administration (I-MBA) is an innovatively designed programme to prepare students to excel in various domains of management right after their school. This programme is offered by NICMAR Business School (NBS). This is a comprehensive management programme comprising a unique blend of courses of undergraduate (UG) and postgraduate (PG) levels. This programme is spread across ten semesters over a period of five years. The program induces management thinking and mind-set at an earlier age, after school itself. Such beginning of management education at an earlier age makes the students focussed, creative, analytical thinkers. Coupled with the zeal for innovation and learning, this transcends them into natural leaders with ethical and social awareness.

The unique curriculum of the programme is the main reason behind such transcendence of the students, as it overcomes the boundaries of orthodox management education. The interesting set of courses in this program include not only the core management subjects but also courses related to science & technology, humanities, creativity, analytics, digital competency and communication. Such a wide variety of courses ensure wholistic development of the student, with an opportunity to truly explore one’s raison d'être during the learning phase, and eventually carve out a fulfilling career and life. The excellent infrastructure of the university together with highly qualified and supportive faculty at every step of this learning journey ensures that the students reach their true potential in every aspect.

This five-year uniquely designed program offers multiple career paths, with students having three types of exit options. The programme comes with an exit option at the end of 3rd year with a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree. Students can also the exit the programme at the end of the fourth year with a BBA (Hons.) Degree or they can proceed towards their masters with an I-MBA degree at the end of year V. Students also have the option to specialize in Business Methods/ Real Estate Management/ Information Technology at the exit of year IV with a BBA (Hons.) Degree. The program offers seven contemporary specializations which are as follows:
