Business schools and industry have an important role to play in the growth of an economy. A productive interface between the industry and business schools is an important requirement for the long term sustainable growth of an economy. This in all probability has become the biggest differentiator for business schools worldwide. And therefore, management students frequently grapple with, “Will my management education relate to the current job scenario and industry?”
We, at FLAME School of Business understand the importance of being relevant with the times and believe in imparting education with practical relevance. FLAME’s eclectic curriculum gives its students a fantastic opportunity to meet new industry professionals, share experiences and view the world from different perspectives. As such, students are given the opportunity to enhance their classroom learning.
