FAQ

Program

 What is the duration of the full-time MBA program?

The MBA program requires five semesters (20 months) for completion. Students who hold a business degree from a recognized institution may qualify for our accelerated MBA option which can be completed in three semesters (12 months)

Online students: If you are an online full-time student, you can complete your program in the same duration as the on campus program (five semesters) or take longer, suiting your needs. The only thing to keep in mind is that online part-time students must complete all their courses within five years of their start date.

 What is the schedule for tuition payment instalments?

Fees are paid per semester. See information on specific payment deadlines.

 What other costs should I expect to pay during the program?

MBA students are required to have a laptop computer. See how other costs can be estimated.

 Do you offer any specializations?

Our MBA program is a general MBA and does not offer a specific specialization; however, the thesis and project options can be used to explore a topic in depth if desired.
