Scaler Expands Its Educational Portfolio, Introduces Scaler School of Business


Scaler’s educational startup has inaugurated its Scaler School of Business (SSB) by launching an on-campus Postgraduate Programme in Management and Technology in Bengaluru. The India Skill Report 2020 suggests that merely possessing an MBA degree does not guarantee job readiness, noting that only 46.59% of graduates are sufficiently skilled for employment. In response, SSB’s postgraduate program is specifically tailored to address the disconnect between conventional business education and the evolving needs of the industry, according to a statement from the company.

The program at SSB incorporates practical learning modules, including a three-month internship, case studies, industry-specific evaluations, and projects directly from leading companies. It focuses on cutting-edge technologies and innovations, particularly in AI and related sectors, aiming to equip students with advanced skills.

Additionally, students will utilise the Scaler Innovation Lab, a dedicated space for developing innovative projects under the guidance of Scaler’s leadership and CXOs from partnering organisations. Here, students will collaborate with the Scaler School of Technology peers to create prototypes and minimally viable products.

Abhimanyu Saxena, Co-Founder of Scaler, emphasised the importance of blending business and technology skills for today’s professionals. SSB aims to foster this integration.

The program also exposes students to industry leaders who act as visiting faculty and mentors, delivering hands-on learning experiences to translate theoretical knowledge into practical expertise.

Structured into six trimesters over 18 months, the program begins with two trimesters focused on fundamental business concepts, covering subjects like accounting, economics, statistics, communications, and sales and marketing strategies. The inaugural cohort, set to start in August 2024, will select between 75 and 100 students through a rigorous admissions process involving written and video essays and two rounds of one-on-one interviews.
