2-Year MBA in Waste Management & Social Entrepreneurship With MGNCRE

* Starting in July, 2020

We are a generation at the crossroads of a major natural resource crunch and very soon we will find it difficult to sustain this burgeoning population of ours. Nature has always been kind to provide bountiful resources simply because every substance innature follows a cycle of creation and destruction and thereby regular replenishment which has been taking place silently since eons. However, despite having learnt to utilize these natural resources through science and technology, humankind is falling prey to its over-usage causing serious depletion of resources. This is the result of human interventions causing incomplete ecological cycles.
