Duration of Program 2 years (4 Semesters)



The Indian economy has gone through several phases of liberalisation, globalisation, and modernisation in the last few decades. Today, it is one of the leading emerging markets globally. To meet the growing demands of the Indian and global businesses for strategic inputs, UPES is introducing MBA in Strategy and Consulting. This degree will train students for advisory roles in strategic management, both in-house and as part of the leading global consulting firms. The MBA in Strategy and Consulting is a focused and tailor-made program that targets students who are interested in becoming strategy experts and consultants.

Business Innovation and Leadership

The demand for such subject matter experts has grown exponentially in the last few years. This specialisation, with emphasis on strategic management through analytical strength and understanding of emerging technologies, will equip our students with the relevant tools and techniques. Since a leading consulting company will be a part of the curriculum design and implementation process, prospective employers will also find this program appropriate because it will help them cut short the time required to train MBAs before they can become productive in the workplace

Academic Framework

The foundation of higher learning at UPES since its inception has been to explore and promote areas of learning that are innovative and future focused. This has led to constant evolution in facilitating creative and collaborative learning engagements for students through realignment of curriculum and exploration of virtual tools, and open-source courseware; thereby creating borderless learning and access to limitless information.

The new curriculum framework at UPES, ABLE (Academic Blueprint for Learning Excellence) is holistic in its overall structure and yet focuses on the individual need of the student to discover, experience, explore and challenge. The learning is segmented into core subject studies, core specialism studies, minors/exploratory subjects, and signature and life skills learning. The latter three are offered by the newly-instituted School for Life.

SFL (School for Life) is an intrinsic part of the composite UPES student experience and facilitates learning and education that is a balance between what students want, and what is needed of them as future global citizens and leaders of tomorrow. With courses designed to equip students with lifelong learning skills, a focus on a wide range of contemporary issues, and a mandatory social and professional internship experience that is unique, UPES believes in igniting to inspire the best version within an individual to better the world.
