The SBIM's diploma programme in management has been given a structure that is designed to capture the requirements of the modern business management. The focus of the course is on building rock solid foundation of students on the basic building blocks of business in first year. To achieve this, the courses offered in the first and second semester concentrate on developing holistic perspective of business. In the second year students are given freedom to specialize in various areas depending upon the market demands and student aptitude. Students with strong mathematical orientation can opt for finance specialization and ones with a bend towards soft skill can choose to be marketing or human resource specialists. This way the course allows the students to develop a synergy effect. Modern day managers face two important challenges. First, how to break away form the norm and second, resilience to work under stressful conditions .The course execution encourages students to think out of box. Creative thinking, initiative and innovative approach to problem solving are appreciated and rewarded. The rigor involved in courses offered makes sure that students are sensitized and trained to take the stressful situations with ease.
