The objective of the Integrated BBA-MBA 5-year Degree programme is to enable students to embark upon a management career after completing 10+2 level examination. The programme provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the fundamentals of business management and the opportunity to pursue chosen areas of specialization.

The programme at JGBS will be one of the most rigorous in the country and is designed to prepare students with a global management perspective through a unique pedagogy of learning and interaction among peers in a modular format. Activities like live projects, field assignments and simulation games will form an integral part of the programme.

Education at JGBS transcends the boundary of four walls of classroom. The aim is to let the unique strength of each individual flourish. The result is not only competent managers but also highly motivated and confident individuals. Education of young minds entails coming up with a vision for life that inspires a life-time of learning, and self-actualization rather than mere skill-building to make a living. JGBS, with faculty from the best institutions across the world, incorporates the modern educational practices in its pedagogy. Emphasis is on learning through discovering rather than from classroom instruction, through problem-solving instead of rote-learning and through critical thinking as opposed to acquiring knowledge as information. This is the essence of being one’s own teacher which is what we emphasize.
Today, grooming of future leaders involves a lot more than what it took just a decade ago. As the world we live in shrinks and becomes more interdependent and complex, holistic development of students now involves learning more than just the field of specialty. At JGBS, a student has the opportunity to learn a wide variety of subjects from other schools – a flexibility that not many universities in India offer. Equally important for complete development are extra-curricular activities such as debates, dramas, sports etc. which are a compulsory part of the curriculum.
The Program requires a minimum of 146 credits consisting of compulsory courses as well as electives. One credit is equivalent to 15 hours of classroom instruction per semester. Typically, courses are 3-credit courses, and course load is 17 credits per semester during the first three years. In the fourth year, required course load is less with room for selecting as many courses as possible based on one’s chosen area of specialization and interest.
