The Comprehensive Project, done under the direction of a faculty member, examines a contemporary live issue/topic pertaining to either a specific company or an industry. The objective of the project is to apply the concepts and methodologies learnt in the programme to real-world management issues and to integrate classroom learning with practical experience
Comprehensive projects can be done by an individual student or jointly by a team of two students during either the 4th or 5th term, in lieu of 3 credits worth of electives.
Independent Study offers a student the opportunity to develop a business perspective that integrates the knowledge and skills acquired in various management disciplines like Marketing, Finance and Human Resources, with hands-on consulting experience.
