Master of Business Studies

The School of Business Studies, Bangalore University, offers Master of Business Studies (MBS), a 5-year integrated course combining Management, Commerce, Economics, Computers, Mathematics and Communication subjects.  It gives a student an insight into the domestic and global contexts of business knowledge. Innovative subjects like environmental studies, current business trends and business leaders, business communication skills in English, Kannada and Hindi, business labs, and weekly management related co-curricular activities, develop the skills that students need to deal with in the Indian business scenario.

Dual specialisations in the fields of banking and insurance, accounting and taxation, financial management, human resource management, international business and marketing management offer a better opportunity for employment. Generally a specialisation enables a student to learn six electives in any degree, but an MBS student learns eight electives and therefore is better equipped for employability.

Case studies and seminars by eminent academicians and business professionals enhance the real life exposure of students to the business environment. Three internships and project work expose students to actual industry situations, the accomplishment of which is highlighted by the viva-voce conducted at the end of even semesters. Annual industrial visits further emphasize on industry experience and thereby complete the academic industry interface. In case of a student finding it inevitable to cease his/her studies after 3 years, he/she is eligible to get a BBS degree. On completion of five years a student gets an MBS degree.

The MBS degree aims at producing holistic individuals ready to be functioning as business professionals, researchers, consultants, and generally as business managers with inter-disciplinary knowledge, enabling them to face any challenging contemporary business situations.
