The unique and distinct learning proposition at IIM Shillong through group discourse delivering both theoretical concept clarity and application-oriented approach has aided me in better understanding management ideas. We were able to learn through highly interactive and interesting lectures from in-house teachers and external lecturers with both industrial and academic expertise.

Mukesh Sharma, MBAWE 2022

There is a great mix of professors and speakers, all are distinguished in their fields of expertise and bring a high level of knowledge to the program. The curriculum is well balanced with team projects and case studies, which quickly help you fine tune and grow specific skills that can be re-applied to your current career. After almost fifteen years of roles with increasing technical responsibility and several years of experience, I felt the time was right to take my education to the next level, and the IIM Shillong’s MBA program was exactly what I was looking for.
