MBA Detail Syllabus


Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) offers wide ranging choice for students to opt for courses based on their aptitude and their career goals. CBCS works on the fundamental premise that students are mature individuals, capable of making their own decisions.

CBCS enables a student to obtain a degree by accumulating required number of credits prescribed for that degree. The number of credits earned by the student reflects the knowledge or skill acquired him / her. Each course is assigned a fixed number of credits based on the contents to be learned& the expected effort of the student. The grade points earned for each course reflects the student’s proficiency in that course.CBCS is a process of evolution of educational reforms that would yield the result in subsequent years and after a few cycles of its implementation.
