At Welingkar, we are deeply inspired by these words of this great American writer and futurist. Undoubtedly, being convinced of the need for a radical change in management education, we decided to tread the path that leads to corporate revolution.
Emerging unarticulated needs and realities need a new approach both in terms of thought as well as action. Cross disciplinary learning, discovering, scrutinizing, prototyping, learning to create and destroy-the mind’s eye needs to be nurtured and differently so.
We school has chosen the ‘design thinking’ approach towards management education. All our efforts and manifestations as a result stem from the integration of design thinking into management education.

Students Life :
A typical day at the Welingkar Campus begins early. Lectures generally commence at 9 am and end at 9 pm. Students are usually on their toes with assignments and projects that take a better part of their time.
The lectures generally last for about three hours. The discomfort if any, is never physical as air -conditioned classrooms bring welcome relief from the round-the-year stuffy Mumbai weather.
In between lectures, students can usually be found at the study room & the cafeteria, unless they are browsing books in the library or surfing the internet at the Computer Lab.
The Director’s chamber is probably the most active area in the Institute. At any given time one can find students, faculty and administration staff seeking his audience. The fact that he is always accessible helps. Students usually meet him and share ideas, discuss issues or simply keep him updated about the day to day happenings at the Institute.
Another interesting activity that students are encouraged to participate in is Autonomous Maintenance. Here students take responsibility for the Institute’s hygiene by lending a helping hand- whether it’s fixing up a broken object or maintaining cleanliness. It’s a hands-on activity and while, it may be perceived by a passive onlooker as a non-managerial activity, Welingkarites look at it as a way of learning because it teaches them to be observant, sharp and disciplined and also to give attention to detail.
Overall the environment at Welingkar is very homely. Friends are made for life and students who have graduated from the institute carry happy memories they would want to cherish forever.
The Master in Management Studies (MMS) program is a 2 year full-time post-graduate program, conducted at Welingkar. On successful completion, the student gets an MMS degree of the University of Mumbai.

The 1st year of the course provides the required foundation by exposing students to the subjects encompassing different areas of business. In the 2nd year, the students specialize in one of the disciplines that include Marketing, Finance, Systems, Operations and Personnel.
The pedagogical feature of the course is the extensive use of case studies and projects based on real-life situations.

The result is an intensive, highly interactive learning experience for the students.
