Here’s how compulsory sports in MBA curriculum is building perfect leaders


Managing a company and leading a team in a soccer match are synonymous and the common points of contact between both are strategizing and teamwork. And for the students pursuing business courses, it’s not easy to develop teamwork. For most of the students, who make it to the premium business schools in the country, they hardly get time from their packed daily schedules to play games and get engaged in activities. As a result, many professionals suffer several mental stress that later affect their personal life.

To ensure the professionals get enough time to distress themselves, many business schools have come up with various schemes. But the unique way to distress the students and ready them for future leadership, Universal Business School in Maharashtra has started MILES programme in the campus.

“Young managers in most organizations today have a twelve hour workday, not including commuting time. This means that managers should be fit and have high energy levels. Sadly, 98% of the B-Schools in Mumbai do not have any play grounds to allow students to engage in sports,” said Tarun Anand, Founder of Universal Business School.

This can lead to health breakdowns, when young managers have to endure a twelve hour work day, in their corporate life. Partnering with Edusports, this programme integrates sports into the curriculum. The students engage compulsorily 3 times a week in sports ranging from Football, Cricket, Basketball, Volleyball, Touch Rugby, Badminton and Team games and have monthly tournaments.
