Program Objectives

The MBA of RJU is a career oriented academic program. The primary aim of this program is to provide postgraduate level knowledge, understanding, and skills that prepare students for their career in business and management. The MBA program is designed for early career professionals seeking to either extend their knowledge and capabilities into managerial roles, or to change careers into a new field of business. The MBA program specifically aims at:

  • Imparting a strong theoretical foundation in business concepts;
  • Providing practical opportunities (via attachments, group assignments and individual  projects) to test what students learn in the class;
  • Building hard-skills in the areas of management and leadership;
  • Polishing a range of soft-skills like communication, motivation and negotiation; and
  • Enabling MBA students to start an independent business venture after graduating.

Curricular Structure

The MBA program is split into four semesters. The courses comprise 60 credits, made up of foundation, core, specialization and elective courses. The program is designed in such a manner that the skills of the students can be developed in a gradual manner. In the first semester, basic ideas about the foundation courses are given. Students are exposed to all the functional areas of business in the second semester. In the next two semesters, emphasis is given on capstone, elective and specialization courses. In addition to foundational, core and specialization courses, students have the opportunity to select elective courses, allowing for deeper exploration and understanding of the sectoral management concepts, issues and practices.

The MBA students are required to complete 60 credit hours courses. They are required to complete 5 foundation and analytical tool courses (14 credits), 10 core and functional courses (27 credits), 3 specialization courses (9 credits), 2 electives (4 credits), graduate research project (3 credits), and attachment assignment (3 credits).
