SOP → YEAR 1 → SUMMER INTERNSHIP → YEAR 2 → MBA PROJECT
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.

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.
