To begin with, the Chennai centre would offer Post Graduate Programme in Business Management (PGPBM).

The institute would also utilise this centre to offer short-term executive education (Management Development Programmes) as well as certification programmes.

In addition, the centre would also serve as a convenient platform to conduct placement-related activities for its two-year programme at Trichy.
