This upcoming B-school in Gurugram has the backing of Arun Maira and Mukund Rajan

The total fee for the flagship PGP-TGM (postgraduate programme in technology and business management) will be close to Rs 20 lakh including GST

Come August 2020, Gurugram will get a new academic institution in the form of Masters' Union School of Business. The business school, set up with an investment of Rs 300 crore, is funded by corporate industry veterans and former bureaucrats.

In a media statement, the institute said it will have classes in an internship-style format and led by practitioners rather than only by academic professors. The campus will be located in Cyber City.

Some of the investors include Arun Maira (former Chairman, Boston Consulting Group), Mukund Rajan (former MD, Tata Teleservices), Karthik Ramanna (Director, University of Oxford), Narendra Jadhav (Member of Parliament, Rajya Sabha and former chief economist, RBI), Tathagata Dasgupta (Chief Data Scientist, Viacom) and Bhaskar Chakravorti (former professor, Harvard Business School and former partner, McKinsey & Company).


As per the institute website, the total fee for the postgraduate programme in technology and business management (PGP-TBM) programme is Rs 17 lakh (plus Rs 3.06 lakh goods and services tax). Candidates will also be eligible for 100 percent scholarship based on merit and for exceptional candidates from marginalised and underserved communities from Northeast India, Ladakh, Bhutan, and the tribal belts of the hinterland.

Applications to the business school are open till May 7 for round one. Shortlisted candidates will be called for a personal interview. As a part of the interview process, you will also be given a case study to solve.

"The flagship, 16-month intensive programme, PGP-TGM is designed to keep hands-on learning at its core, delivering the courses using live consulting projects, field tours and internships, to offer students industry-immersive learning at every step," the institute said.

The business school will also conduct technology boot camps in emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, blockchain, SAAS and cybersecurity.

Further, the institute will establish a student-run venture fund with a corpus of Rs 5 crore that will invest in areas like real estate and capital markets. It will also have a Centre for New Business Models, a research-based forum that will formulate business opportunities in newer technologies like blockchain, bio-tech, and machine learning.

It will run a CXO shadow programme to enable students to have a first-hand look into a day of a CXO to experience how organisations are run and business decisions are made.

"In medical schools, doctors teach students, practising lawyers teach in law schools, but in business schools, faculty may not have experience with hands-on leadership in the industry. That’s a gap Masters’ Union addresses by getting CXOs, MDs and business leaders to teach and train students," said Tathagata Dasgupta, the founding master of the business school.
