World-Class MBA at The Kochi Business School

The Kochi Business School located in Kakkanad is a unique venture unprecedented in the management education arena of Kerala. KBS is one of three institutions, founded by Mar Thoma Educational Society, a not-for-profit institution being actively engaged in the arena of education for the last 25 years.  Initially christened as The Marthoma School of Management Studies, KBS is AICTE approved and offers state-of-the-art infrastructure built on the lines of the best schools internationally. The aim is to create future entrepreneurs and management leaders whose skills are global-edge.

Kochi’s commerce and industry is experiencing explosive growth, but there is acute shortage of high quality talent to man it. It is this realization that led to the creation of the business school.

The School believes in the motto ‘ad meliora’, which means constant betterment and aims to meet the demands of a new generation of managers who are not just bottom line oriented cogs in the giant wheel but real value creators. The training imparted will be such that students who come out of the institution will have a thorough understanding of imbibed values and they themselves will be highly qualified to create value for enterprises.  Through its commitment to research and scholarship, the School shall make impressive contributions in the field. “We are committed to the environment, our city and the world, creating a legacy for future generations.”  Said Prof. N. Ramachandran, the Director of the Kochi Business School. Prof. Ramachandran has about three decades of experience in IIM Calcutta and in leading institutions abroad.

KBS offers a residential MBA program with a difference. The students can choose any specialization approved by M.G. University provided there are a minimum of 5 students opting for that particular subject, the professor said.  The objective is to provide the participant a unique learning experience, access to faculty, and a conducive environment for experimentation. In fact, KBS’ specialty is its unique classroom-industry-classroom model of training. Every student after every four weeks of classes is assigned to leading business organizations and corporates where they spent one week working on live problems. This practice covers the entire program and allows the student to spend 20% of the time working on real projects in companies. Apart from these weekly assignments they also spend two months of summer with industry. This is done in close cooperation with our industry associates. Scholarship will be provided to those students who display exceptional academic talent.

As far as infrastructure is concerned, the campus is built in a compact area neighboring the Mar Thoma Public School. It is an integrated facility meant for a close-knit community with all facilities within easy reach. Being a residential program, KBS is committed to provide first-class accommodation to all the students. A new graduate housing complex is also on the cards.  The superbly built academic and administrative buildings contain large and small classrooms, group study rooms, conference rooms, lounges, cafeteria, a business library, computing facility and offices for faculty and staff.

KBS is committed to enabling a cutting-edge information technology environment and offer the latest classroom instructional technology, video conferencing, computing, and secured wireless access throughout campus. A well provisioned language laboratory would meet the language support requirements of students. Apart from standard eligibility criteria, preference will be given to applicants who have at least two years of working experience.
