The newly established MYRA School of Business in Mysore, Karnataka, is one of the latest additions to the list of premiere management education institutions in India. “MYRA was born out of the need to redesign management education in the country and groom the leaders of tomorrow. Keeping in mind the rapid economic development in emerging markets, as well as an increasingly integrated global world, our programme is designed to address current and future economic challenges,” explains Prof. Rajiv K. Sinha, Dean of MYRA.
Established by renowned academics with a profound appreciation for education, MYRA offers a two-year Post Graduate Diploma in Management. With an eminent Governing Board to guide the institution’s strategic direction, and distinguished global faculty who take learning to a whole new level, MYRA promises to be in a class of its own.
Rethinking the model of education from the ground up, has meant infusing fresh perspectives and thinking from some of the best minds in academia. “Our intention is to bring a blend of Indian and western perspectives and methods of teaching to add intellectual diversity in the classroom. With a stellar line-up of renowned professors from top-ranked global and Indian institutions this will now truly be possible,” says Prof. Shalini Urs, MYRA mentor.
The MYRA pedagogy based on an experiential learning model, allows for deeper understanding of subject matter. (Listen to Dr. Matthew Barney, Director, Infosys Leadership Institute talk about experiential learning at the MYRA Round Table). The programme pedagogy is created to provide a dynamic learning experience. “The curriculum is designed with a focus on live case studies, practicums that bring real-world challenges into the classroom, and internship opportunities that ensure students are industry-ready when they graduate,” states Prof. Rajiv K. Sinha.
Spread over ten acres of terraced land with avant-garde architecture, the MYRA campus, transcends the boundaries of traditional education, providing a vibrant environment to promote fresh thinking and exchange of ideas. With world-class facilities such as executive classrooms, 24/7 library, cafe, amphitheatre, gym and health club, volleyball and basketball courts, golf and horse-riding, Wi-Fi enabled campus, and other modern amenities, MYRA Business School is set to be one of the top business schools in India by providing a holistic and dynamic learning experience.
