More Options

In addition to the MBA with specialization options listed above, the University also offers two more variants as listed below:

  • MBA in Banking and Finance: This is a specialized MBA especially designed for those looking to accelerate their careers specifically in the Banking and Finance domains. Learners need to complete four elective modules in the domain of banking and finance to obtain this coveted degree. Students typically complete the programme in two and half years but can finish the programme earlier and obtain the "letter of completion".
  • MSc (Business): A compelling research based Master's program considered equivalent to the MBA. The highlight of this program is the substantially lesser number of coursework modules that the learner needs to complete to obtain this unique Master's qualification. The curriculum requires the learner to complete only two research modules and write a thesis to obtain an MSc in Business degree.
  • Postgraduate Diploma of Business Administration (PGDBA): The Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration (PGDBA) is designed to provide learners with a solid foundation in core management subjects. The program can also be used as a stepping stone to the MBA as learners who complete the PGDBA can articulate directly onto the MBA with full transfer of credit. Students typically complete the programme in 18 months but can finish the programme in as early as 12 months.


Using our Flexi-pace model, students typically complete the MBA program in as short as 12 months. The maximum candidature period is 3 years, but students can study beyond the normal candidature period via extended candidature options.
