Mumbai : IFIM Business School is accepting applications for its full time BBA programme, at its campus in Greater Mumbai. The programme has been carefully envisioned and crafted with an objective of grooming ‘T’ shaped professionals who are employable right after BBA, are skilled for the Industry 4.0 needs, and are lifelong learners.
The curriculum of the fully residential BBA programme is crafted in order to cater to the Industry 4.0 needs, while also integrating Liberal Arts (General Education) streams aligned to the curriculum of US universities.
In addition to focusing the curriculum on Industry 4.0, the debut BBA programme of IFIM Business School also has other firsts to its credit as below:
● The only BBA programme in the country to have pathways to a graduate (Bachelor’s) qualification at an international partner school.

Dr. Atish Chattopadhyay, Director, IFIM Business School adds, “With the changing dynamics of the industry today, we have witnessed a shift in the requirements of the working professional.

The IFIM Business School curriculum is an answer to this, where we have taken into consideration, the needs of our future employers, to develop job ready professionals bearing the right skills. Through this program, our graduates would be industry ready after the completion of their bachelor’s degree and eliminate the need for an MBA immediately after graduation.”
