This collaboration aims to provide a distinct learning experience, where leaders & founders from high-growth companies along with top business school faculty will converge and engage with students at Mesa School of Business, and shape them into future startup leaders.
The new campus, located on Bannerghatta Road, Bengaluru will offer a dynamic learning environment in a space spanning over 50,000 square feet. The bright, spacious dedicated space will provide students access to state of the art classrooms, ideation zones, and areas for team collaboration, community building & recreation. The synergy between Mesa School of Business and WeWork represents a turning point in reimagining the future of learning spaces.
“With 500+ startups within a 5 km radius of the campus and a flexible workspace bustling with entrepreneurial energy with 50+ co-located startups, WeWork India was the best place we thought about to give our students an immersive experience in the startup ecosystem of Bengaluru. Since our program is unique and is made up of several different types of teaching methods, we wanted our campus to be able to support that. WeWork India provides the flexibility to change the learning space as we need for the program, almost every week. We wanted the best suited learning space for our students,” , said Ankit Agarwal, Co-Founder of Mesa School of Business.
Mesa’s 1 year PG program in startup leadership focuses on applied learning, industry exposure, and personalised mentorship, and the curriculum aims to prepare 60 hand-picked students in its founding cohort for the challenges of leadership roles in Indian Startups. Students will get a chance to apply those concepts in real time across bootcamps & hackathons, build 5 micro businesses in the year in sprint modes to go from 0 to 1 and generate revenue in less than 10 weeks. There will be a variety of teaching methods deployed in the curriculum to enable these learning outcomes. The full time course will also offer over 200 hours of leadership workshops with army veterans, communication and stage presence hackathons with coaches, theatre artists and industry mentorship.
