2. Dr. Bala Krishnamoorthy, Dean In charge, SVKM’s NMIMS School of Business Management, said,
“With an increasing overlap of legal issues in business, there is strong demand for professionals with interwoven skills and a robust understanding of both business and law. To run a business successfully one, needs to possess in-depth knowledge of the regulatory environment across different sectors. Given the scarcity of such specialized talent, there was an urgent need for a program that combined the domains of law and management in a cohesive manner, and that went beyond a few modules on corporate law. We conceived MBA (Law) as a program that would combine these two specialties to develop multi-skilled leaders who can help organizations deal with the legal aspects of various functions. Our goal is to groom lawyers into business leaders by providing them the academic knowledge and the problem-solving skills of a manager. The success of our program is a testament to our belief in this management program that combines two domain specializations.”
3. Dr. Paritosh Basu, Sr. Professor & Prog. Chairperson, Finance & MBA-Law, School of Business Management, further added,
“As we see increasing specialization in business functions, the demand for multi-skilled managers with expertise in more than one domain has also risen sharply. MBA (Law) equips students with dual expertise in law and business, giving them a legal perspective to managerial functions. The specialized curriculum designed in consultation with seasoned academics and industry experts bridges the crucial knowledge gap and creates synergies by bringing management and law together. With internships and immersive project work, it also provides students with industry exposure and business insights so that they can hit the ground running after completing the program.”
