Programme Design

The First Year of the course starts with a coverage of Foundation Subjects which impart to the students a sound knowledge of the essential functional areas of business.
In the Second Year,  the emphasis shifts to elective courses,  which are designed to give the students as wide a choice as possible,  to specialize in areas of their interest and acquire advanced knowledge and skills.
The programme rounds off with a strong emphasis on integrative and value-oriented courses such as Business Policy,  Business Ethics and Environmental Issues so as to make the student not only a competent manager,  but also a socially responsible citizen. Considering the phenomenal growth and importance of IT industry,  current topics related to IT are included in the programme.

A summer project spread over eight weeks between the First and Second Years enables the students to put into practice many of the key concepts they will have learnt.
