    As we celebrate our remarkable journey spanning ten glorious years, its heartening to

    see that Great Lakes Institute of Management has succeeded in carving a niche for itself

    among the top tier management institutions in the country.

    With an emphasis on creating Day One Business Ready Managers & future Corporate

    Leaders, Great Lakes has undertaken a revolutionary design in management education

    through an innovative one year program for students with significant prior work experience equipped to take the fullest advantage of the exceptionally rigorous and demanding nature

    of the customized curriculum. With its collaborative arrangements with Business Schools

    across the globe, a supporting pool of visiting and adjunct faculty from top International

    B-Schools across the globe - a wish list of faculty from Kellogg, Stanford, Harvard, IIT

    Chicago, Yale, Manchester, SUNY, Miami, Georgia State, Texas, SMU and supported by a

    group of core faculty who have excelled themselves in the finest B Schools, Great Lakes is the embodiment of underlying philosophy of Global Mindset, Indian Roots.

    At Great Lakes, we encourage learning by doing. The culture in Great Lakes facilitates not

    only learning from academicians and eminent industry captains but peer learning as well.

    Aided by the latest technology, a continually evolving curriculum, and constant corporate

    interaction, our students are transformed from being first class management students into astute Thought Leaders who are ready to take on the challenges of the corporate

    world, both in India and abroad. In addition, every institutional activity bears the imprint of

    student efforts in the form of various Committees and Clubs mentored by faculty.

    We have always responded to the pressing needs of our time and today, and keeping

    that in mind we have introduced a new specialization last year in Business Analytics. In

    a wired world where six degrees of separation is being squeezed daily by proliferation of

    Big Data, Analytics is the next career opportunity to drive the Indian growth story and as

    usual Great Lakes is ahead of the curve. The feedback from the industry has been a three

    cheers to our unique innovation that has resulted in a flurry of excitement and job offers for our graduates in the fastest growing new field of endeavor. We have also introduced dual degree program for PGPM with the University of Bordeaux which offers our students

    unparalleled access to the European markets for opportunities.

    Like the old days at the great port of Mamallapuram, where great Indian explorers set out

    on voyages of discovery and adventure, Great Lakes offers you an unparalleled experience

    of 365 days of learning that enriches for you entire life and an enduring bond of friendship,

    and camaraderie of the best B School graduates in the country ready to set out on their

    corporate journeys. It is my pleasure to invite you to join this batch.

  • Dont handicap your children by making their lives easy.

    - Robert A. Heinlein, Celebrated American Sci-Fi Writer

    In todays evolving global business environment, life is not expected to be easy. In every

    industry, change is the only defining constant. Let us take a few illustrative examples. The Indian IT industry which grew on a linear headcount driven model and built its first 100 billion USD revenue is now poised to switch to a niche technology driven non-

    linear growth path to fuel its second innings of growth. With a rapidly sliding Average

    Revenue per User (ARPU) over the last decade, the telecom industry is looking towards

    volume driven new growth markets at the bottom end of the pyramid and value driven

    niche mobility solutions markets at the top end. Traditional retail industry is facing the

    onslaught of e-tailing, if the valuation stories of some of the new Indian e-tail companies

    are any indicators. Even a casual watch over the markets is sufficient to understand the sea-change that is happening. The business space is transforming and so are the

    business drivers.

    So where does all this leave you? That you are reading this brochure is a fairly strong

    indicator that you have felt the need to change too to upgrade your skillsets and add more

    marketability to your resume - which is all very good. Now, let me proceed to enlighten you on

    what you may expect in the one year that you spend with us at Great Lakes. For starters, we are

    celebrating our 10th anniversary this year and still enjoy the status of a young school.

    In fact, we are the youngest school in India and one of the youngest globally to get the

    prestigious AMBA (Association of MBAs, UK) accreditation for the PGPM program.

    As your first point of contact to this great school of experiential learning, let me assure you that as a Business School, we not only understand the compelling realities of the

    business world but also craft our courses around them. In the challenging times that

    the global economy is today, we guarantee to equip each of you with the most rigorous

    academic tools to enable you to hit the road running. We have no intention of making

    your life easy for the 12 months that you are here! The academic rigor and the industry

    relevance that we bring in is one of a kind. Your classmates would typically have an

    average work experience of 36-48 months. This apart, the geographic, linguistic, sectorial

    and gender diversity in the Great Lakes PGPM classroom remains unmatched. From

    working to networking, we encourage you to play hard!

    Our Dean Dr. Bala always states, We are not in the space of churning our Business

    Administrators. We are in the rarified space of creating Business Ready Leaders who will build tomorrows India. As the schools Admissions Director it is my pleasure and

    privilege to welcome you to Great Lakes Institute of Management. We promise you an

    exciting 12 months of learning and experiencing.
