About PGPEx-MBIC 2018-19 Program

Emergence of India and China as major forces in the contemporary global economy is one of the most significant development of the past quarter century. Their continued growth is likely to influence the course of the future world economy. The growth potential in these economies has not only opened up new business opportunities, but also new challenges. Unlike the past growth trajectory of the developed western nations, the growth path of these emerging economies has to be holistic and inclusive to maintain sustainability of the society. Newer opportunities are thus creating newer problems seeking more sophisticated managerial solutions.
