The SDSB MBA is a two-year programme based on a series of core and elective courses.
The SOP brings together students from diverse academic backgrounds and prepares them to deal with the challenges of the rigorous MBA programme. The SOP is offered in August, prior to the official commencement of classes. It aims at easing the transitional stage of students into the regular MBA by providing fundamental skill enhancement modules in communication, business mathematics, accounting, computer applications and statistics, thus bringing all the students from different backgrounds to one level.
In year I, all students are expected to complete core courses that are designed to give concepts that provide the backbone of general management education.
- Financial Accounting
- Marketing Management-I
- Managerial Communication-I
- Statistical Analysis for Management
- Operations Management Fundaments
- Organizational Behaviour-I
- Managerial Communication-II
- Finance Fundaments
- Marketing Management-II
- Decision Analysis
- Leadership & Team Building
- Experiential Learning-I
Between the first and the second year of the MBA programme, students must undertake a project based summer internship of at least six weeks. The mandatory internship helps students to apply classroom knowledge to a practical environment, the amalgamation adding further to the learning experience. Through the internship, students gain valuable management experience early on in their careers and identify their long term career goals. Internship placements are aided by the Placement Office at SDSB.
In year II, students select from a wide range of electives offered in multiple disciplines. This mix of general management and specialist courses through the two years makes our graduates truly versatile and ideal candidates for careers across a range of functions and industries.
These elective streams include Finance, Marketing, IT/Operations and Organisational Behaviour, Human Resource Management and Strategy.
The project is an excellent application of what is learnt throughout the programme. It is a challenging assignment, combining decision making ability, teamwork, working under pressure and an integrated approach towards management.
The MBA Project is mandatory in the second year and is equivalent to two full courses. A real life client presents a managerial issue to a team of 4-5 MBA students and over the year, the group has to present a comprehensive report to the client and is graded accordingly. The project is an excellent application of what is learnt throughout the programme. It is a challenging assignment combining decision making ability, teamwork, working under pressure and an integrated approach towards management.
The approach is that of a management consultancy assignment where possible topic may cover:
- Carrying out a strategic review of an organisation and its environment
- Identifying a major issue faced by the organisation
- Coming up with alternative solutions for addressing it
