Curriculum I - MBA

The core curriculum of MBA focuses on developing essential skills and knowledge in the areas of economics, organization and behaviour, finance and accounting, management control, marketing, human resource management, information systems and quantitative methods.After successfully completing the first year requirements, the students undertake summer training of up to ten weeks at the managerial level. Students analyse and offer solutions to specific managerial problems under the guidance of a faculty member as well as a manager in the host company.

Second year students structure their studies to suit their aptitude and interest. They usually develop one or two major areas of expertise by selecting courses from the 60 to 80 electives that the Institute typically offers. Students willing to delve deeper into a topic that is not covered by the elective courses can do term papers under faculty supervision.

The method of instruction varies. Case studies, lectures, group and individual exercises, class projects, student presentations, simulation games etc., are used in different courses. Many courses bring in industry experts to integrate classroom learning with industry practice.
