Our graduates can efficientlywork in entry-level business jobs.

Master of Business Administration (MBA) programs prepare students to operate in a variety of different roles, with most being management positions. With an associate degree in business administration, someone can find entry-level jobs that allow them to get their foot in the door in the business world. Employment opportunities include positions such as an Executive Assistant, Analyst Benefit/Payroll Clerk, or Marketing Assistant.
A bachelor’s degree can open up employment opportunities over a wide variety of careers. Management positions such as Sales Manager, Project Manager, Internship Manager, Business Manager, or Shift Manager become available. Along with those, people with bachelor’s degrees work in positions aimed at improving business operations. For example, a Business Operations Analyst studies a company efficiencies and recommends ways to improve it. Taking a job in accounting is also a path many choose.
With an MBA, people qualify for numerous management and leadership roles. These may include jobs such as Business Manager, Senior Business Strategy, or Director of Business Analysis. Those with an MBA also go on to work in VP roles in positions like the VP of Business Development and VP of Strategic Operations, which consists of implementing plans to improve business processes. People who specialize in concentrations such as finance can go on to work in a role as a Financial Manager or Chief Financial Officer. These roles oversee the financial and investment activities of a company and make sure they achieve their financial goals and projections. Although most people who graduate with an MBA go on to the corporate world, a small number may go on to be community college Instructors or Adjunct Assistant Professors.
Business administration majors typically work in offices or, in the case of those with a doctoral degree, in the classrooms of colleges and universities. While most two year colleges and four-year schools prefer individuals with doctoral degrees, some may hire individuals with MBAs as part-time instructors or teaching assistants.

Necessary info on double major, internship/thesis, teaching assistance
If a student of Batch 1 or Batch 2 decides to pursue a second major, they will be allowed to do so after they complete their internship program. However, if a student of a subsequent batch (Batch 3 or higher) wishes to pursue another major course, they will have to complete all the required academic courses before beginning their internship program.
Those who have capacity to take 5 courses in each trimester, will be allowed to complete 10 (ten) courses of their Major stream in two trimesters. But those who would find 5 courses in each trimester too much, will take two courses in an extra trimester for their second major after completion of the requirements of the first major stream.
This means, the students of third and the following Batches will have to decide about taking a second major before their internship program and then inform the Chairman of the Department. Only after completing all required courses—for both 1st & 2nd majors—they will they will be allowed to begin their internship program.
