Mesa school of Business opens India’s first ever B school campus in WeWork India

Mesa School of Business has launched their first campus in WeWork India – India’s leading flexible workspace, to create future business leaders in the startup ecosystem. Mesa School of Business, located in Salarpuria Symbiosis, aims to provide its students with a uniquely immersive learning experience. 

This partnership offers a different learning experience where leaders and founders from high-growth firms will come together and engage with Mesa School of Business students, shaping them into future startup leaders.

The new campus will provide a dynamic learning environment over 50,000 sq ft on Bannerghatta Road in Bengaluru. Students will have access to advanced classrooms, ideation zones, and areas for team collaboration, community development, and recreation with the bright, open dedicated space. The partnership between Mesa School of Business and WeWork represents a turning point in rethinking the future of learning spaces.

“To really understand what it means to lead & build startups, it is very important to be at the heart of where the action is. 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 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.

Commenting on the collaboration, Karan Virwani, CEO, WeWork India, said, “We are delighted to partner with Mesa Business School and be the first flex player to host a B-school within our space. WeWork India has been instrumental in offering entrepreneurs and enterprises a range of benefits, helping them find their version of great. Through this collaboration, we are further expanding our scope and offering students an opportunity to be in the midst of action and connect with a diverse range of organizations.”

Mesa’s 1 year PG program in startup leadership focuses on applied learning, industry exposure, and personalized mentorship. Its initial cohort of 60 well-selected students will complete the program, which aims to prepare them for the difficulties of leadership roles in Indian startups. While top business school faculty will teach the fundamental concepts using case studies as part of the curriculum, students can apply those concepts in the real world through bootcamps and hackathons. They will also build five micro businesses in a year in sprint modes to go from 0 to 1 and generate revenue in less than ten weeks. A range of teaching methods will be used in the curriculum to support these learning objectives.

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.
