The CBM MBA program is designed to produce transformational and ethical leadership for businesses and industry through integrated curriculum and experiential learning and prepares graduates for business challenges emerging from globalization, connectivity and technology driven innovations. The program develops a skilled pool of business leaders possessing a solid set of multidisciplinary expertise in the core corporate functions of Finance, Marketing, HRM, Supply Chain and Development Studies.

This MBA program is designed for students having 14 years of education with degrees in a wide range of disciplines such as business, commerce, law, science, and arts. The 108 credit hours MBA program is divided into a foundation stage of 72 credit hours followed by the 36-credit hours of rigorous MBA level courses and a capstone project dealing with strategy and business transformation. The foundation stage covers areas such as accounting, finance, marketing, economics and management and consists of preparatory course work necessary for the higher level MBA courses. The students are also expected to complete 2 credit hours of internship of at least six weeks in an approved firm and the comprehensive examination. Students completing 72 credit hours of the foundation stage are eligible for the grant of Bachelor of Business Studies (BBS) degree.

Students must maintain a 3.0 CGPA for MBA level courses for the conferment of the degree. The program may be completed in a minimum of 3.5 years depending upon the relevant preparation. Students who are weak in English and Communication Skills are required to take an additional “Business English” course to enhance their knowledge of the language.

A distinguishing feature of the CBM MBA is the academic ecosystem of experiential learning which immerses the student in a cycle of “learning by doing” through reflection. Case studies and project work are among the pedagogies used for delivery of the curriculum content. A significant value adding feature of the CBM MBA is the 6 credit hours Graduate Capstone Project divided into two 3 credit hour components. Students undertake, individually or in small groups, a real life project with a company that addresses a real life issue which, through the application of multidisciplinary
knowledge and skills acquired during the MBA studies helps in more profitable and competitive decision making and implementation in the organization. This project is jointly supervised and evaluated by a faculty member with aligned skills and interest and an industry mentor and is evaluated in an open exhibition by executives and faculty.

MBA students can specialize in the following areas by taking four electives:

• Marketing
• Management
• Finance
• Human Resource Management
