What is MMS (Master of Management Studies)?

Although MMS courses have transformed from simple audio-video-based training to full-fledged assessment and certification courses, still they have not received the attention they deserve. 

Master of Management Studies (MMS) is a two-year postgraduate degree course that has been successfully running for more than a decade now. It is the oldest of its kind in India and holds a very special place in the academic world due to its success and quality. Known as the course that “makes you employable“, the MMS course is a “Model Course” that many colleges across the country have followed.

Classroom and online learning are both parts of the 12-month program. Students have the opportunity to learn the core concepts of management from the best universities in India and abroad. Students also undertake internships during their studies.

Students can pursue management in areas like Finance, Marketing, Human Resources, and Strategic Leadership. The subjects include topics like operations management, economics, business ethics, information technology, organizational behavior, accounting, business communication, and the legal environment

The curriculum is flexible and focuses on contemporary issues, cutting-edge research, and business management. Studying MMS allows students to gain a world-class education with world-class faculty, including a mix of full-time and part-time lecturers.

Are Master of management studies (MMS) courses available in India?

Many people look for the best management courses in India but are unaware of the wide spectrum of management subjects available. They are usually limited to the standard business courses offered by the larger universities in India. Over 50 management colleges currently offer courses in management across the country. These include both private and public sector colleges.

MMS course structure in India

Keeping the industry in mind, the MMS course structure is designed to fit the needs of this niche. The idea is for students to start with the business basics and then move to the advanced concepts, which will benefit students who aspire to do better in their respective careers. 

Throughout the curriculum of the MMS program, theoretical and practical management concepts are emphasized equally.

A few of the MMS course topics are Marketing Management, Human Resource Management, Operations Management, Financial Management, Strategy, International Management, etc.

There are four semesters in this two-year postgraduate course, which combines classes, practical assignments, internships, and fieldwork to ensure practical experience. Students of an MMS course will be exposed to a wide range of management topics, and they will develop both practical skills and theoretical knowledge regarding the same. 

For students to enroll in the MMS program, they must possess a Bachelor’s degree in Management Studies or its equivalent. Students from every stream are welcome to pursue this course, including Science, Humanities, and Commerce. 

The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi, approves this course.
