International MBA (IMBA)
The Rajagiri International School for Education and Research (RISER) has been instituted as a response to globalization in the field of higher education and offers quality programmes which equip professionals to effectively perform in the global arena. RISER was established in 1998 with its first twinning programme in Management with Western Michigan University, USA. Since then RISER has arduously carved out affiliations with Sellinger School of Business, Loyola College in Maryland, USA, University of Maryland, Assumption University, Bangkok, Nazareth College, Rochester James Cook University, Australia and Australian Catholic University, Australia.
Twinning programme is an innovative educational concept that enables students to complete the first half of a programme in an institution in one country and the remaining half in a partnering university located in a different country. The partner institutions share courseware, teaching methods and faculty members for successful completion of the programme. At RCBS we offer part of the International MBA programme by adopting syllabi and delivery methods conforming to international standards. On successful completion of the first part of the programme at RCBS, students can transfer these courses to the parent university and complete the second part of the programme at the parent university. The one year programme at RCBS is designed as a flexible three trimester course with transfer options available at the end of each trimester.
Office of International Affairs
The Office of the International Affairs at RCBS coordinates the international activities of the students, educators, and programmes. The objective of the office is to improve and increase the global awareness of the students and faculty through exchanges, training, collaborations, twinning, visits and guest lecturing in India and abroad. Having achieved international standards, as is evident from the long standing relationships with the twinning partners, Rajagiri now aims to set new standards in international higher education and training.
RCBS is an approved centre for research leading to doctoral degree in management under Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam, Kerala and Indira Gandhi National Open University.
