Why choose this course?
This course aims to develop competent managers for general business administration and management. It is ideal if you want to follow a broad but comprehensive business and management programme rather than specialise in one particular area. You also undertake a placement in your final year.
Students who have already completed two years of a similar course overseas, but would like to complete their degree in the UK, can undertake the final two years of the course, including the chance to undertake a placement in the UK.
What will you study?
In the first two years, you will study a broad range of business subjects, including:
- Human resource management
- Operations management
- International business environment
You consolidate and enhance your studies in the third year, examining strategic management issues. You may also be able to gain some knowledge and skills in management consultancy. You can also choose to specialise in a particular business functional area through your choice of three elective modules.
In your fourth year, you will apply your knowledge and skills to a real business organisation during a one-year placement. Building on this experience, you develop an in-depth knowledge of a relevant business and management issue in your placement organisation by writing a business administration management report.

International Language Programme
IIS offers customized courses in:
- Mandarin (Chinese)
In view of the global business scenario and growing employment mobility, knowledge of any international language will contribute to value addition in the academic qualification of our students. The latest fact about the international languages is that there is a deeply felt need and necessity among the Indian businessmen. For instance, the bilateral trade between Indian businessmen and other countries is increasing by leaps and bounds. India is one of the Emerging markets alongwith China and the relations with France is being re-inforced in recent times.
Lack of knowledge of an international language becomes a barrier in business transactions. To overcome such barriers, the management of SVKM, which is committed to provide quality education to members of the society in general and SVKM students in particular, has decided to launch programmes of international languages under the aegis of one of its prestigious institutions - “Institute of International Studies”.
Having successfully completed its first phase with two prominent language programmes German and Mandarin (Chinese), in its second batch IIS introduces the Spanish language programme also. SVKM’s IIS offers these difficult languages in the most easy way. The programmes are so devised that in a very short span, students will start speaking the chosen language comfortably and at the end of the course they will acquire sufficient proficiency in communication to be able to transact business with the concerned countries.
On completion of the course, a certificate will be issued by the SVKM's Institute of International Studies.
The key aim of the language programme is to develop spoken communication skills in the language and the main highlight of the course includes:
- Speaking, reading and listening
- Communicative languages
- Business languages
- Interactive class-room sessions
- Role-plays and group discussions
- Group Assignments
- Mock Sessions
All the above courses are delivered through 40 sessions of 90 minutes at convenient timings in the evenings/weekends with two batches a year starting in January and July.
