New Delhi, India, November 16, 2010 --( Centum U, the higher education arm of Centum Learning, a Bharti Associate company, has announced the launch of a uniquely designed, full-time global MBA degree programme in partnership with the Coventry University of UK.

Coventry University has recognized and validated the PGPM developed by Centum U, in association with Pearson Education as a knowledge partner, for awarding its own MBA Degree. It is the same MBA degree that Coventry University, till recently, has been offering to graduates with a minimum of 3 years of experience. Their validation of the same programme for fresh entrants at all five campuses located in Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad and Mohali, reflects their confidence in Centum U.

Commenting on the programme Mr. Sanjeev Duggal, CEO & Executive Director, Centum Learning said “As the world turns into a global village, there is a clear need to develop a distinct programme which transforms students into global citizens who can perform effectively in multicultural environments. We are delighted to work with Coventry University, well known for its academic prowess and offer an MBA programme whose curriculum is customized for global economies taking into account nuances of Asian markets. I am sure that together with Coventry University we would be able to provide a winning edge to Indian students aspiring for a global career.”

The programme offers a strong foundation for students looking for an innovative mix of management theory and a wider global perspective. The depth of curriculum coupled with Centum U’s much touted on-campus experience enable students to acquire subject-specific knowledge and develop other essential attributes and life skills for becoming life-long learners and active global citizens. This MBA programme responds to the aspirations of current generation of students and addresses the current & future needs of other stakeholders including prospective employers.

The second year of the programme would allow students to specialize in one out of five core disciplines i.e Marketing Management, Human Resource Management, Financial Management, International Management, and Entrepreneurial Management. Students will also have a choice of adding another Asia specific module and study an Asian language which will further help graduates to thrive in the global market place. Global recruiters would find students ready to hit the ground running with minimal investment in additional learning inputs.

Ms. Kate Quantrell, Registrar & Secretary, Coventry University added “We look forward to developing our partnership and strengthening the links between Centum U and Coventry University. I am sure that students shall stand to gain immensely from this partnership, which will unfold in several meaningful ways in years to come.”
