Title Name of the Programme: - MASTER OF MANAGEMENT STUDIES (MMS) Nature of the Programme: - MMS (Master of Management Studies) is a 2 year Full time Master’s Degree course of University of Mumbai. Eligibility Criteria as per the directives of Directorate of Technical Education, Government of Maharashtra Preamble We see a kind of Education inflation in India. This means that a particular qualification which served a purpose at one time or is supposed to fulfill is no longer perceived to be e nough in today’s times. It requires an additional degree or certification to become truly employable. Hence, it becomes important to bring relevance and constant innovation in curriculum, pedagogy, emphasis on ‘learning by doing’ so as to make students future ready and employable. MMS kind of programmes have to take into account this reality. It needs to metamorphose into an Application oriented programme. Secondly, let us refer to a section of young people and particularly those who have reached at the higher education level. They have access to much more information than their previous generations. Free content through the internet, open source knowledge, new media platforms has led to higher level of exposure for the youth. Hence the MMS classroom can no longer be a place just for knowledge dissemination. It needs to help the youth to go into the depth of matters, make meaning out of available information, learn problem solving in whichever domains they are inclined to and yet be holistic in their thinking due to the interconnections and interdependencies in the world. One must also be mindful that independent decision making must be encouraged for students at the Post graduate level. This means that students at this stage must chart their professional career while being lifelong learners. This process begins during the programme itself and hence the MMS now needs to offer a plethora of optional subjects which are chosen by the students as per their own abilities and aspirations. This will help them to sharpen their focus early on.

Thirdly, in India low cost innovation, offerings for different demographics, emerging markets in rural / tier 2 or 3 towns / urban lower classes are changing the business landscape. Management education has to gear up to nurture people to create new opportunities in this situation. Another point of relevance is that professional management is now required in other arenas too like social entrepreneurship, public governance and in running voluntary organisations. This renders the scope of the MMS to be more broad-based now.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
