In the year 2003, University took a strategic decision of starting an Integrated 5-Year MBA Programme under the umbrella of Department of Management in order to cope with the emerging challenges of management education. Since then, the department has remained very successful in meeting the corporate requirements of trained work force both at middle and top level managerial positions. On receiving an overwhelming response from all corners for this programme, University decided for a separate Institute. Accordingly, in year 2005 the Institute of Management Studies (IMS) was established to run MBA-5 Years Integrated Practice Oriented Programme. The students of the Institute get BBA and MBA degrees after successful completion of first three year and total five years respectively. The admissions to the programme are made as per merit score comprises of weightage of qualifying examination (senior secondary) marks, marks at an All India Entrance Test and Interview. The students admitted in this programme come from various academic, social and geographical backgrounds. The Institute offers specializations in accordance with the requirements of the industry and interest of the students. The major fields of specialization include Finance, Marketing and HRM. Unlike a two year MBA Programme, the Institute offers the students with specialization both in 4th and 5th year. Moreover, the Institute utilizes the services of visiting faculty from industry and academia. The Institute has its own library equipped with 6047 books, 54 Computers, adequate number of smart class rooms/OHPs etc. Several reputed companies visit the Institute for summer/Final placements.
