The programme is a 2-year full-time, residential, post graduate degree programme, where our students are given the opportunity to truly build an entrepreneurial mindset – grounded in academic theory, the programme provides the opportunity to learn-by-doing, be inspired by faculty, visiting lecturers, speakers and experts from different domains, industries and geographies, and acquire a broad perspective with a wide variety of courses.

Architects of the Course

The Pinnacle MBA at JKLU is a one-of-a-kind reimagined programme designed by experts from higher education, management studies, business and industry to offer the right blend of academics, experience and experimentation to the students. We believe that every individual should be given the opportunity to develop personally as well as professionally, in whichever domain they are interested in. It is an opportunity for aspiring professionals to chase their dreams and see them come true.
