The MBA Programme


THE SELECTION 
The MBA programme of this faculty has been approved by the 
All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). 
The rigorous selection procedure consists of a written aptitude
test, group discussion and personal interview, which culminates
in the induction of 40 students. The size of the batch is kept 
intentionally small in order to foster a close association 
between the students and the faculty and to generate 
cohesiveness amongst the students. There is no reservation of 
any kind (including reservation for home university students) 
except as required statutorily by the government.

THE PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES 
During the first year, sixteen compulsory courses make up a 
common schedule for the entire class. This common scheduling 
helps generate cohesiveness amongst the students and stimulates
an atmosphere where group decisions and group interactions 
become essential. The curriculum is well structured and highly 
demanding. During the second year, the students study five 
compulsory courses in addition to the five subjects from their 
area of specialization. 
     
THE PEDAGOGY 
The teaching method is interactive and participatory in nature.
Apart from regular lectures where theory is supplemented by 
case studies, students are required to make presentations and 
undertake field assignments. The students acquire skills in 
marketing, finance, operations management, accounting, 
organizational behaviour, human resource management, 
economics, and statistics, among other areas. 

The programme, however, requires that a solid base in all areas
of business be established in the first year, prior to 
specialization. This inculcates in the students, the ability 
to function in realistic business situations, that calls for a 
multitude of skills and the application of concepts learned in 
a business course. 


THE EXTERNAL INTERACTION 
At the end of the first year, all the students have to undergo 
a summer training in an organization in their area of choice 
for a period of eight weeks. This exercise enables the students 
to get a firsthand experience and insight into the organization
and the business environment. The students also undertake a 
comprehensive Grand Project for a period of eight weeks during 
their fourth semester.
