Our Commitment to a Cutting Edge Curriculum


With every new year at Vedica, we aim to ensure that the quality of the academic programme we offer continues to improve, by reimagining the existing management curriculum across business schools, and introducing unconventional, exciting areas of study to Vedica Scholars. Towards this end, we have formed the Young Managers' Council, a group of bright young professionals who are currently pursuing an MBA, or have graduated with an MBA less than two years ago, from top institutions in India and abroad.

This council will support us by suggesting new approaches to courses and subjects taught under the four tracks at Vedica, recommending essentials for management practice, and adding a contemporary edge to the Vedica curriculum by bringing together expertise and knowledge gained from the best institutes around the world. Our members include students from Harvard Business School, Yale Management School, HEC Paris, IIM Ahmedabad, Faculty of Management Studies and Indian School of Business.

The Young Managers’ Council will help us remain up-to-date on new developments and insights from across the world as we continue to create a pioneering management practice programme, a first-of-its-kind in the country.
