Besides the focus on developing managerial competence among the pupils through acquisition of specialized knowledge and skills, the Institute emphasizes the importance of developing a sense of social justice with right attitudes and values of discipline, dedication and commitment among all its members.

Economics, Finance, General Management, Information Systems, Marketing, Operations Management, Organizational Behaviour, Personnel Management & Industrial Relations and Strategic Management, to equip the students with an integrated approach to management function and managerial skills.
