MBA in Infrastructure Management
Infrastructure development has been the main pillar of global economic development over the last several decades. In advanced countries, the focus has been on upgradation and improvement of the existing infrastructure facilities, while in the developing countries like India, the thrust has been on creation of basic infrastructure facilities like road and power in new or less developed areas and expansion of the existing network of infrastructure in urban areas.
Currently, about 40% of global infrastructure investments are in the Energy Sector, while another 36% is spent on roads and bridges. Other infrastructure sectors including rail, airports, telecom, etc. account for the remaining 24% of total global investment in infrastructure and allied sectors. According to the World Bank estimates, the total global infrastructure expenditure will be around US$ 2 trillion annually over the next decade.
Closer home, the Infrastructure
Sector in India has a bright future. According to Planning
Commission estimates India needs aggregate investment of
more than US $ 500 billion over the 11th Plan period of
five years ending March 2012. Such large investments are
required in order to upgrade and expand the infrastructure
for sustaining the targeted average GDP growth rate of 8-9%
a) Energy & Power: Development of energy sector is crucial for India’s long term economic development. Energy sector comprises of conventional fuel technology, energy transformation and transmission, renewable and alternative energies, energy sector has a direct impact on economics and environmental concerns of India. The Indian Oil and Gas sector is one of the six core industries in India and has very significant impact on the entire economy. The oil & gas sector meets more than two third of the total primary energy needs in the country.
b) Transportation: With rapid urbanization, the need for quality transportation facility is rising. India has the second largest road network in the world, with an aggregate 3.3 Million Kilometres of road linkage accounts for around 86% of passenger traffic and 61% of freight, making it the main artery for commuting across the country. The Indian Railways (IR) has the second largest railway network in the world, running over 63,332 route Kilometres. Although development of Rail Infrastructure is an integral operation of Indian Government, in recent years the government has opened up the railways sector for private participation for operating container trains across ports in India. Also, establishment of rail linked inland container depots (“ICDs”) across India for international as well as domestic trade has been initiated.
The importance of the seaports for the international trade can be gauged by the fact that out of the total foreign trade of India, which is nearly 90% of the trade, is handled via sea ports.
c) SEZ & Real
Estate: Although it has suffered a setback of late,
SEZs are important tools for economic development of India.
The Real estate industry, which recorded an impressive growth
of around 35% in 2008, is expected to grow at an average
annual rate of more than 25% over the next decade.
Dr. Arun Mudbidri, Founder
and Principal Director of Samvit School of Infrastructure
Business, Pune says, “Infrastructure Business is already
on the way of becoming a Sunrise Sector. This sector requires
qualifications which are useful for the sectors unique career
requirements. This is a reason why conventional MBA’s
do not find favor with this sector. There is tremendous
potential for the students joining infrastructure in terms
of Managerial career opportunities and long term growth
potentials to Leadership positions.” Samvit School

complete professionals talent for infrastructure sector.

TERI University`s roots can be traced back to 1998, when TERI School of Advanced Studies was established. The School was subsequently renamed as the TERI University in October 2006. TERI University was conceived to cater to the need of disseminating the vast reservoir of knowledge created by TERI, a not for profit, independent research institute recognized globally for its contribution to scientific and policy research in the realms of energy, environment, and sustainable development.
The genesis of TERI University is rooted in the comprehensive research, consultancy and outreach activities of TERI. The relationship with TERI has propelled and influenced the evolution of the University`s academic units. This relationship is enshrined in a memorandum of understanding between the University and TERI, wherein the two have agreed on collaborative research and programmes, joint studies and mutual support for seminars, symposia and conferences.
This vision was further strengthened in 1999 when the University was granted Deemed to be University status by the University Grants Commission and notified vide Ministry of Human Resources Development, Department of Education, Government of India, notification no. F 9/19/95-U-3 dated October 5, 1999.
Since its inception, the University offers not just world-class education, but also an environment that enables its students to develop fresh perspectives on their subjects of study. This includes regular interactions with researchers, scientists and academicians. The University`s first convocation was held on 16 October 2006, where 8 doctoral and 36 master`s degrees were awarded. Mr Nandan Nilekani, CEO and MD, Infosys Technologies, delivered the convocation address, stressing on sustainable development and incorporation of related concepts in higher education.
Before moving into the Vasant Kunj campus, the University was housed in Darbari Seth Block of India Habitat Centre from 1998 to 2008. In 2008, TERI University started functioning from the new `green campus`, located in Vasant Kunj- a prestigious institutional area in New Delhi. However, it continues to share the rich and diverse resources of TERI in terms of knowledge and expertise. The new campus has been planned to provide a setting that enhances learning, while simultaneously showcasing the concept of modern green buildings.
Giving an importance to international perspectives in its programmes, TERI University has entered into memorandums of understanding with several international universities aimed at facilitating mutually beneficial exchange of students, faculty, knowledge, resources and ideas.
In 2007, the University launched an academic exchange programme with Yale University (School of Forestry and Environmental Studies) with support from the V K Rasmussen Foundation. Subsequently, in 2008, the University launched another academic exchange programme with Freie University of Berlin, Germany, with support from DAAD (the German Academic Exchange Service).
In 2009, four scholarship programmes were set up for students in various programmes at the TERI University, funded by Sindicatum Climate Change Foundation, HSBC, Deutsche Bank and IOCL (IndianOil Corporation Ltd.), benefiting 16 students till now.
From launching the first doctoral programme in 2001 with 13 students and master`s programmes in 2003 with 19 students, to 93 doctoral students and 518 master`s students on the rolls in the 2010 academic year, the University has come to stand for excellence and quality within a remarkably short span of time.
