Why MBA? This is the most common doubt in the minds of prospective students. MBA is one of the most coveted Post Graduate streams throughout the world. Apart from advancing career prospects and job opportunities, it provides a cutting edge over other programs under commerce education. From senior roles in management to starting one's own entrepreneurial venture, there is a plethora of opportunities after completing MBA. An MBA definitely enhances your business skills and makes you better equipped for a chosen field of profession or career.
The MBA Programme at SIMS is spread across four semesters, covering general subjects in the first year and specialization subjects in the second year. The students will have to choose two areas of specialization (Dual Specialization) in the second year. The advantage of Dual Specialization is that you have a wider array of career opportunities to choose from as well as the ability to realistically correlate the functions of different departments in an organization.
The MBA Programme at SIMS is affiliated to Bangalore University and is recognized by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi. The course is also recognized by the Government of Karnataka.
The students are also exposed to two projects - an Internship during the third semester and a Research Project (Dissertation in your specialization area) in the fourth semester. Students are asked to submit their profile at the department during their second semester which is then studied by the placement team. The placement team then refers students to internship openings in line with their areas of interest and the internship offerings bring a host of learning as well as financial aid in the form Stipend for the students. This acts as an excellent opportunity for students to have an interface with the Industry and gain valuable work experience before they step into the competitive corporate world.
