The Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS) has been developed as a unique offering in India. It will provide its selected cohort of students with a strong foundation of specialized knowledge, experiential learning and opportunities for early global exposure. It is aimed at producing well rounded global citizens who have a broad multidisciplinary base of knowledge and a ‘world view’ – Shiv Nadar University’s special differentiator- along with depth and specialization in several job-oriented and ‘in-demand’ areas in Management. The goal is to give students the best of both worlds – versatility that prepares them for any career, including higher education and targeted acceleration into chosen career tracks.
BMS Program at SNU gives an opportunity to students to pursue their interest in the specific area of management that they have a flair for. The program has lesser credits on core courses, and more on elective courses. Every student has to take 65 core credits, and 43 departmental elective credits. The students can start taking elective courses from the very first year of undergraduate studies as long as pre-requisites, if any, are met by the students. In addition to departmental core and electives, a student has to satisfy the university requirements of 42 credits combining University-wide Electives (UWE) and Core Common Curriculum (CCC) with a minimum of 18 credits of each type. Depending on aptitude and interest, a student may specialize in one or two managerial areas, say in Marketing and Finance; or Information Systems and Finance (and so on). Different specialization areas are Strategic Management, Entrepreneurship and International Business; Decision Sciences and Operations Management; Economics and Public Policy; Organizational Behavior and Human Resources; Marketing; Finance, Accounting and Control. Every student has to complete a social sector internship (6 credits), and a business sector internship (6 credits). The total credit requirements for BMS is 150, and the minimum duration for the program is 3 years, and maximum duration is 6 years.
