The MYRA School of Business is an innovatively designed business school established in 2012 at Mysore under the aegis of the Mysore Royal Academy(MYRA).The school’s avant-garde and architecturally acclaimed campus was inaugurated on November 4th, 2012 by Padma Bhushan Deepak Parekh, Chairman of HDFC. MYRA was founded by an educationally enlightened group of thinkers led by Prof. Shalini Urs, Executive Director, International School of Information Management and Prof. D. Shrijay Devaraj Urs, Institute of Development Studies, both from the University of Mysore, who have distinguished themselves across the academic life cycle of teaching, research, administration, and accreditation.
MYRA brings faculty from top B schools of the world such as Wharton, Kellogg, IIMB, Arizona State University, University of Cambridge and many others to bridge the quality gap in Indian business education. And following the immersion learning model and a global curriculum, we offer a truly international learning experience in India
The school’s business education model has been developed in the context of the emerging need for a relook at current business education needs, given the rapidly growing focus on emerging market economies, where the current and future needs at the bottom of the pyramid are yet to be effectively served. The school’s learning model offers an equitable mix of individual attention, academic rigour and experiential learning with a view to develop future leaders with the requisite energy and passion to help transform the business landscape. In a sense, MYRA’s vision is to prepare its students for a world yet to be imagined, to manage markets that are yet to emerge, and to lead decisively in situations that cannot be predicted, without losing focus on the Triple Bottom Line, so as to create lasting economic, environmental and social value through the adoption of the best business practices.
MYRA currently offers three business education programs:
- The AICTE(All India Council for Technical Education) recognized Post Graduate Program in Management(PGDM)
- The Post Graduate Program for Executives (PGPX)
- Open and Customised format Executive Education Programs
The Founding Cohorts in both the PGPX and PGDM programs who will graduate in 2014 and 2015 respectively, represent a kaleidoscopic diversity that is so typical of and unique to India. Coming from 13 different States, 75% of the students in the PGDM program are boys; 25% girls; 75% carry qualifications in engineering; 20% in commerce and business management; and 5% in science. More than half have work experience ranging from 1 to several years and their experience covers diverse industry sectors ranging from aviation to automobiles, human resources to healthcare, information technology to insurance, and tourism to textiles.
