It aims at to develop students into broadly educated business managers and executives who understand the nature of business as a whole, with the tools and techniques applicable to a wide variety of business situations. The program gives the students a chance to bring together all of the theories, skills and tools studied during the program and integrate them into a learning experience that highlights the nature of competition and the kind of strategic maneuvering that must be done in order to succeed.

 

Upon completion of the programme, many graduates go on to become successful entrepreneurs, or to assume leadership positions in SMEs, major local and multinational corporations, in consulting firms, or in government service. In the field, the graduates are expected to be able to integrate human and other organizational resources with continually developing technology, while nurturing the entrepreneurial spirit that has always been one of the key characteristics to successful businesses. They are expected to adapt and apply complex business theories as they build an understanding of evolving organizational realities that require instant, skillful and ethical action as they aim through rapidly changing circumstances.
