The curriculum is designed to equip students with the competencies, knowledge, skills and attitudes needed for success in management field. The coursework gives students a broad and holistic view of the challenges in today’s business environment. Besides lectures, the classes are facilitated by case studies, group discussion, project assignments, field visits, class presentations and other teaching methods. In addition to this, term-paper writing, seminars and project works are the common teaching methods used by the faculty to achieve the objectives of various courses. Throughout the program emphasis is placed on students’ active participation and involvement in learning with the role of a faculty member mostly confined to that of a guide and counselor.
A student needs to complete 120 credit hours of course work, project work and internship for earning BBA degree. A full time student has to take a minimum of 12 credits per semester.
The BBA students are required to undertake an internship program approved by the Head of the program. A faculty supervises the student intern. The primary goal of internship is to provide a student with a real-life on-the-job exposure and an opportunity to apply theoretical concepts in real life situation. Student’s interest and intended area of concentration are taken into account while making internship placement decisions. The normal duration of the internship is 6 to 8 weeks, and it is undertaken during the summer after completing at least 48 credit hours of course works. The students must submit the internship report to the host institution and the University and give a seminar to the faculty and students.
A student must obtain ‘Pass’ grade in the internship. Failure to obtain passing will call for a retake of the internship program. Such retake may be allowed at most only once.
The BBA Program adopts rigorous theoretical instruction complemented by case-based teaching, term-paper writing, seminars and project work to emphasize on the application of concepts and theories to identify, diagnose and solve managerial problems. Up-to-date and relevant course materials are used to provide students with a solid theoretical base and conceptual clarity. Throughout the program, emphasis is placed on active participation and involvement of students in learning with the role of a faculty member mostly confined to that of a guide and counselor.
Students are also encouraged to consult the faculty during office hours for academic assistance. SAIC also adopts critical approach to learning which offers the students long lasting benefits than conventional management courses.
