The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is the core degree programme of the Institute. It takes two years to complete. Organized into eight academic terms during this two-year period, the programme offers approximately 600 classroom interaction hours and over 60 hours of faculty consultation on research, skills development, directed study and residential workshops. Since the degree requirements for group work, practical assignments, research and skills projects as well as examinations are comprehensive, the demand on students in terms of study hours is high. Most of the sessions are conducted during evenings and weekends, and part of the work is done through day-time workshops and off-campus residential programmes. All degree requirements must be completed within a period of five years of the date of first registration.
A student must earn a total of 60 credits by way of course work, research work and skills demonstration. These credit hours (cr) are distributed among these components of the regular study programme as follows:
|Required Core Courses (18)||36 credits|
|Elective Courses (03)||06 credits|
|Management Research Project (MRP) or Management Skills Project (MSP) or Management Case Study (MCS) or Entrepreneurship Skills Project (ESP) or Industry Survey Project (ISP)||15 credits|
The Management Research Project/ Management Skills Project/Management Case Study/Entrepreneurship Skills Project/ Industry Survey Project is presented by the student before a panel of academic and professional evaluators.
