MBA in Innovation & Intrapreneurship


“When all think alike, then no one is thinking,” these immortal words of Walter Lippman form the foundation of SIBM Pune’s new offering- MBA in Innovation and Intrapreneurship (I2MBA).

Government of India has declared 2010-20 as ‘India’s Decade of Innovation’ and Symbiosis, always ahead of the times, has once again taken the lead to launch a unique and pioneering MBA (Innovation & Intrapreneurship), a programme to make India’s dream a reality. The addition of ‘Intrapreneurship’ is in keeping with the industry expectation of employees with an entrepreneurial mindset.

Intrapreneurs are essentially internal innovators. According to The American Heritage Dictionary, intrapreneur is "A person within a large corporation who takes direct responsibility for turning an idea into a profitable finished product through assertive risk-taking and innovation".

Our interactions with policy makers, thinkers and corporate leaders have led us to believe that these are days of innovation and entrepreneurship- whether outside or inside an existing organization. The road to the top for managers today is through conception of innovative business ideas leading to enhancement of the toplines and bottomlines of their organisations.

It is on this backdrop that SIBM Pune has designed the I2MBA programme. This two-year Master’s Degree programme incorporates learnings derived from running two batches of a one-year Diploma in Innovation & Corporate Entrepreneurship (DICE).

Duration: Two years full time.


  • A graduate from any statutory university with a minimum of 50% marks (45% for SC/ST) at graduation level.
  • Students appearing for final year examinations can also apply, but their admission will be subject to obtaining a minimum of 50% marks (45% for SC/ST) at qualifying examination.

Intake: The intake is limited to 40 seats.

Course Design

It is becoming increasingly clearer that managers who can effectively lead innovative projects will only be put in the leadership pipeline. The good news is that contrary to the traditional belief that creativity and innovation are inborn talents, it is now widely accepted that these are skills which can be learnt, practiced and perfected. It is with this belief that the programme touches all the relevant concepts in innovation and intrapreneurship but does not stop there. It goes much beyond concepts to embrace practical aspects of managing a business innovatively through functional areas like HR, marketing, finance and operations.

The Course pedagogy is specifically intended to create an entrepreneurial mindset that will help students feel a strong ownership towards their organizations, thus inspiring them to go beyond the routine to explore areas of improvement in products and processes.

Course Coverage

While covering all the essentials of a conventional MBA programme, I2MBA would explore the unexplored areas like creativity, innovation, design thinking, entrepreneurship and liberal arts. The coverage would be flexible enough to incorporate latest developments in the field of innovation and from the world of corporates.

Teaching and Evaluation Methodology

The pedagogy for this programme would go beyond the traditional. It would incorporate:

  • Innovative Induction programme
  • Case Studies
  • Role Plays
  • Business Simulation Exercises
  • Field visits
  • Sharing of innovation experiences of corporates through a series of Guest Lectures
  • Real-life and Hand-on projects
  • Multiple internships

Evaluations will be entirely based on continuous assessment through presentations, projects and internships with no semester-end examination

For Whom

Vastly different from a conventional MBA programme, I2MBA would ideally suit graduate candidates with fire in their belly to tread a different path to success; a path perhaps strewn with setbacks. It would suit candidates who are willing to think different from the crowds, believing that their thinking will change the world in some way.

Candidates with a creative bent of mind coupled with strong analytical abilities would find the programme immensely useful in catapulting them to the world of innovation-focused corporate and other institutions. Those looking to start their own business/social ventures and those from family business background would also find the programme immensely valuable.

Post Graduate Diploma in Family Business (PGDFB) Programme


Family businesses play an important role in shaping the national economy and as per a Credit Suisse study, two out of every three listed companies in India are family-controlled, making India the country with the highest presence of family businesses in Asia. The huge potential to create employment coupled with their long-term vision enables the family firms make a unique contribution to the global economy as well as to society in general. In recent times, a number of traditional family run businesses have been able to transform their organizations through the adoption of contemporary management practices. This has resulted in enabling their stupendous growth and huge profits. Many of these traditionally proprietor-driven companies have become Board-driven and have been pioneering several exemplary practices in the area of business management.

Our aim at SIBM Pune is to create and nurture leaders who will forge ahead to create a vibrant future for family-owned businesses. Given that we have completed 36 years of creating business leaders for the future we would like to continue this tradition and train, add value and mentor the future leaders of India’s finest family companies.

Our Post Graduate Diploma of Family Business Programme launched in 2012 is a unique approach to ensure that family business owners learn to appreciate and integrate key issues such as adherence to systems, transparency of business processes, an analysis of best management and governance practices and family continuity and leadership acceptability challenges. This will help in delivering an extra edge to those family businesses which are gearing up to become more competitive. Our programme is spread over a period of one year across two semesters. It requires the participant to visit our Institute for just 5 days five times a year for on-campus classroom sessions and the remaining time can be used in applying the concepts learnt and discussed during the on-campus sessions for their businesses.

The key objective of our programme is to prepare the participant of the PGDFB programme for a leadership role in his/her family business and to be a powerful influence in the family run business. With the need for family businesses to play to their strengths in the global competitive arena, it is time now to apply a professional approach as well as equip yourself with a Post Graduate Diploma in Family Business!
