The International Summer University 2016 programme on Business Management is taught by highly qualified international guest faculty from our partner institutions.

Class strength : is dependent on the interest evinced by the students in specific courses. The maximum number of students in a class will not exceed 40.

The Four courses being offered at the MDI ISU 2016

Choice of courses

  • Participants can choose to enroll for any subject. Indian students can opt for a maximum of 2 courses; international students can enroll for a maximum of 3 courses.

Language of Instruction

The language of instruction for all courses is English.

Course details

A course requires studying 21 hours on selected course in a week, and remaining hours as participation in research week. For more details please visit the link below/ Research Week 2016 web page

Every course will require students to complete a pre-course assignment even before the start of the course at MDI. Information on the assignments will be sent directly to the participants by their respective instructors by March end/beginning of April.

Thus each course will be equivalent to 4.5 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits, or 3.0 US Credit Hours. Each course has the equivalence of one complete course at the MBA level for the Indian system (semester system).

The rigour in the course work amply justifies the credits.

At the end of the course, MDI shall provide transcripts to the students and the home institutions of respective students showing the MDI International Summer University 2016 grades.



The weight for each component of the grading elements is decided by the instructor of the course.


Attendance at all sessions is mandatory. Absence from class can adversely affect the grades.

On completion of the selected courses, the students will receive a certificate from MDI which will clearly state the courses taken and their assessed performance in each of the courses. The grade certificate will be awarded to the students at the official closing ceremony of each course. No certificates will be given to students who have failed a course or missed classes without valid leave of absence. If universities require a transcript to be sent to the student’s home institution directly, a duplicate of the transcript can be sent. Please contact the MDI ISU 2016 coordinator before the commencement of the programme.

Credit Transfer

MDI ISU 2016 accepts students only from those partner institutions that have agreed to accept a grade transfer. As a matter of prudence, we strongly recommend that students prior to enrolling in the MDI ISU 2016 consult with their home university/school that their university is acceptable to the idea of credits earned at MDI to be duly accredited.
