The programme is carefully designed keeping in view the changing needs of the domestic as well as global business environment. All through the first year, students are exposed to basic concepts in the areas of Marketing, Finance, Quantitative Methods, Operations, Behavioural Sciences and Strategy through the core courses. These shall lay the foundations for all the functional areas of management and help the students develop an elaborate understanding about the different aspects.
