Management (BBA/BMS/BBM)

From ancient Egyptian pyramid builders to Satya Nadella (CEO Microsoft) and Indra Nooyi (CEO Pepsico), management has developed from assessment, planning and control to the complex theories of operations research. However it has always revolved around five functions: Planning, Organising, Leading, Co-ordinating and Controlling.


The work of a manager is to set a mission for his team, plan and accomplish it. Can you lead, motivate, inspire, and encourage people to achieved goals? If yes, management is a career for you. A management career path is not a straight line. Nor is it the same for everyone. Each path leads managers to what they need to know based on their area of study and interests.


An  organisations  success  is  dependent  on  being  able  to  recruit  and  retain  very  high  caliber  professionals  who  can  demonstrate communication and problem solving skills, creativity, initiative, personal presence and the ability to work well in a team.

A good learning model immerses the students in a transformational experience that fosters professional, intellectual, and personal development. So if you decide to choose management as your area of study, you will find an opportunity to be more than a part of the business world, you can help shape its future!

With the Indian economy surging ahead, and companies on overdrive, there is a growing demand of management students.

Each company looks for something that it believes will make a difference to its prospects. For instance IT companies look for management students who have a broad understanding of IT with the right blend of client facing skills.
