A student will undergo minimum 1215 hours of course work during the two-year programme. The courses have been classified into credits. A four-credit course has 20 classroom sessions of 90 minutes each (i.e., 30 hours) and 40 hours of off-class room work/activity for the student, while a two-credit course has 10 classroom sessions (i.e., 15 hours) with 20 hours of off-class room work.


The programme consists of 84 credits of core or compulsory courses and 60 credits of elective courses. One has to complete at least 20 credits in any particular area (out of five elective areas) to declare it as the area of concentration/specialisation.


The Institute follows an open credit system for electives. So a student has the freedom to opt for single specialisation or dual specialisation or even no specialisation as per her/his choice. A student can also opt for maximum two courses for in-depth independent study (CIS) and submit dissertation(s)






After the third term, the students are required to undertake internship for eight weeks in any organisation to relate their classroom learning to the ground realities of industry. This is intended to sharpen their knowledge and hone their skills, and develop better appreciation of the practical problems of business organizations, especially from the management point of view. The experience, thus gained, also helps the students in planning their future professional career
