The purpose of this study is to elicit the application of Multiple Intelligences (MI) theory to a course taught in the MBA Andragogy. Administered to a sample of 47 students of the first year MBA Information Technology Business Management (ITBM) program at a private university in India the study brought out certain interesting implications. Foremost, the written report, prescribed a clear route map for the preparation and planning of the MI activities to become the SAP ERP-Controlling Configuration course in the MBA (ITBM) program. Second, the administration of the MI Andragogy to the target sample by applying three well-defined tools. Foremost, the MI profile of the students, second, the most preferred MI activity of the student and third, the observation schedule with the instructor. The statistically significant pre- and posttest scores validated the strength of the work. The third implication is the triangulation of the three tools to ensure the credibility and validity of the results. It was found that a little over 50 percent of the sample resulted in complete corroboration and the balance partially corroborated. Overall the research extends and enhances the scope and application of MI theory to MBA Andragogy and serves every bit a broad citation to the MBA teaching ecosystem.
