Bachelor in Business Economics (B.B.E)

The underlying philosophy of the Bachelor of Business Economics course is to develop theoretical and analytical skills of the students so that they may be absorbed in the corporate world or be able to pursue higher studies at the Master’s level. In the rapidly changing global market scenario, there is a need for the students to equip themselves with the capability to understand and handle the dynamic of economics and the business world. The papers in this course have been designed to include recent changes and developments and current trends in business and economy. There is a substantial infusion of quantitative techniques component in the syllabus to equip students with essential tools for business and economic analysis. The course aims to expose students to the areas of finance, marketing and the legal structure within which businesses operate. Thus, a fine balance has been maintained between the economic theory and practical business components.

A student who has passed 10 + 2 in any discipline with a minimum of 45% marks can seek admission. The medium of instruction is English and all exams will have to be written in English. All students will undergo an English Proficiency Test after securing admission, based on which they will be divided into different groups for English Proficiency Classes.
