First-of-Its-Kind Program from acclaimed Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College launches in collaboration with the Bombay Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Think Education

The flagship business school within The City University of New York (CUNY), Baruch College’s Zicklin School of Business, is launching a first-of-its-kind, convenient, affordable, and accelerated Executive Master’s in Finance (EMSF) in Mumbai, India,  

This Executive Master’s, the same program as the Executive MS in Finance degree offered in New York City, is only $15,000 USD in Mumbai.  The Bombay Chamber of Commerce and Industry will host the program in collaboration with Think Education Advisory Services.   

Designed for professionals who seek to fast-track their careers, the EMSF uses a weekends-only modular format that allows students to complete their program in as few as 10 or 11 months, or longer, if needed. The program in Mumbai is taught by the New York City‒based faculty of Baruch College’s Zicklin School of Business, the largest accredited collegiate school of business in the United States.  Students in Mumbai complete the identical program that is offered in New York City as an MS in Finance degree awarded by Baruch College.

“Baruch College is excited to make Zicklin’s graduate education accessible to executives in Mumbai, in India, and around the world whose full lives do not align with traditional program schedules,” said Dr. H. Fenwick Huss, the Willem Kooyker Dean of the Zicklin School of Business. “These talented executives understand that advancing their learning greatly enhances the opportunities to further advance their careers. We understand that a graduate-level program must fit into demanding schedules of busy professional while also delivering an exceptional education.”

Speaking to Afternoon D.C. Aditya Malkani, Managing Partner, Think Education, said, "Our focus has never been on taking students abroad. However, the faculty from the U.S. shall fly down here and basically bring the program to you."

Adding on the program, Malkani said, "This is a far more accessible and economical option. It is a weekend only program and is meant for working professionals who want to update their skill set. The course will increase the value of the individual's resume greatly."

Modular and Global
The EMSF program will consist of 10 modules, each of which is completed over one month with two consecutive weekends in the classroom.
Students complete three initial modules in Mumbai and travel to Zicklin’s New York City campus to take one module of their choice. The remaining modules can be completed in Mumbai or New York City. Tuition and fees for one New York City module are included in the program cost.

Additionally, students in Mumbai can collaborate and network virtually with their peers in New York City. Students who complete the program join Baruch College’s global network of more than 135,000 alumni who reside in the New York City area and across the world.

India-Based Collaborations
Classes will be held at the Bombay Chamber of Commerce and Industry at The Ruby, Dadar (West). Established in 1836, the organization is one of the country’s oldest chambers with several thousand members.

“Since its founding, the Chamber has provided continuous service (which include new constructs) to trade and industry,” said Director General Vijay Srirangan. “This legacy, along with our ongoing commitment to encouraging business education for corporate executives in India, positions the Chamber as an ideal collaborator with Baruch College’s Zicklin School of Business for its new EMSF program.”

Zicklin is also collaborating with Think Education (TE) Advisory Services, one of India’s leading strategic education solutions enterprises supporting the development of unique partnerships in the education sector. The firm works with leading universities and governments worldwide. TE is bringing its extensive network of corporate relationships to help generate awareness of the EMSF and will lead the local delivery of student services and coordination with the Zicklin team in New York City.

“Think Education is delighted to help The City University of New York launch its first program in India,” said Aditya Malkani, managing partner at TE.” We are pleased to be creating access in Mumbai to a high-quality master's program at an extremely attractive price. Zicklin is offering a truly special program that includes a robust classroom component taught by NYC-based faculty who travel to Mumbai for this program in a format that is convenient for working managers and professionals.”
