The BBA Program offered by VPSM will be of 3 years duration and shall be spread over 6 semesters of six months each. Each semester will have six courses (subjects). Each of these courses will consist of 30 hours of classroom teaching. The students shall spend at least about 100 hours on pre and post-class working – which will consist of the textbook and additional readings, case studies, discussion on project work/assignments, preparation of quizzes, etc. One 30 hours course will be considered as a 3 credit course (that is, 10 hours for 1 credit). Students will have to complete 108 hours of classroom credits to become eligible to be a graduate of the school.
This series of courses aim at teaching the students the skills and language they will need in any career in business and management. It will also expose them to the skills and knowledge required for leadership roles in an organization. At the end of the 3rd year, a student will have acquired leadership qualities along with problem-solving and decision-making abilities and skills to work in a team.
The two important factors that distinguish the VPSM BBA Program from the rest are its personalized learning experience and the six-month project with the industry. The course structure consists of the core courses that will be compulsory for all the students and electives to be chosen by the students as per their career aspirations. These choice-based electives shall offer a personalized learning experience while the industry project will help them understand the functions of the industry better by getting hands-on on the job experience.
