Bachelor of Science (Honors) in Applied Management


MSD has designed this new programme considering our changing academic environment. The programme builds upon the old 2-yr Bachelors Degree (BA, BSc, B.Com) and would enable the students to earn a four year Honours Degree after studying for another two years at the Management Studies Department. The programme is structured after reviewing undergraduate programmes at internationally renowned schools.

In terms of scope, these graduates would compete for the top public & private sector placements as well as be eligible to apply for a Master’s degree programme anywhere abroad. The programme would also give us room to upgrade our existing MBA to a post-experience programme and to make it internationally acceptable in due course.

Programme Structure

In order to earn the Bachelor of Science (Honors) degree in Applied Management , the students are required to complete a minimum of 70 credit hours with a cumulative grade point average of 2.3. This would be in addition to their existing 2-yr degree which will be accepted for credit transfer and the students will have the necessary credits in the range of 126 – 132 to qualify for a 4 year Honors Degree.

  • The first semester of this programme consists of three compulsory courses of 4 credit hours and two of 2 credit hours each offering a total of 16 credit hours.
  • The second semester consists of four compulsory courses of 3 credit hours and one of 4 credit hours each offering a total of 16 credit hours.
  • This would be followed by semester III which comprises six months of work-based learning. Students also take up to 9 credit hours of courses that match their work placement.
  • The final semester comprises of three compulsory course, two electives and a research paper of 6 credit hours offering a total of 20 credit hours.

NOTE:  The maximum credits offered would be 71 and the minimum required for graduation would be 70.

Summer Term The summer term is designed to fulfill the credit hour requirement of a bachelors (Hons) degree which is 124-136.
