Change your thoughts and you change the world...


Moving beyond, Daring to think and Raring to act is the by word of management education today. The need of the hour is quality assurance in management education. New frontiers in management demand that management courses move from brilliance to excellence. This scenario makes the Business Management Department of St. Agnes College think of making the programme career oriented. In this pursuit the Department facilitates management students to acquire in-depth knowledge in business related issues.

The programme offered emphasises academic excellence without impairing the development of human qualities and internalization of values which is imperative in sculpting effective individuals of society. The programme strives for the overall development of students. The course provides a platform for experiential learning, through seminars, presentations, case analysis and Project work. The department is open to innovations in curriculum as well as Teaching, Learning and Evaluations; and the Syllabus is adequately supported by Honours Programmes and Certificate Courses.

The Department grooms students towards industry specific curriculum with focused approach on specific areas which are crucial in the management of companies. The companies such as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Hewlett Packard have recruited students from this department. The Department strongly focuses on latest trends in management by continuously updating the syllabus in coordination with academic faculties as well as specialists from various industries who constantly guide the department to reach its objective of making able management professionals. The department gives practical exposure to students by making them visit both small scale and large scale industries. These field trips also aim at covering the aspect of social responsibility to ensure that students give importance to human approach. Project work is assigned with the objective of giving students on-the-job experience making them suitable for the job market. Personality is also looked into by keeping in mind different criteria of self-management.

The most distinct feature of the programme is that it offers dual specialization to the students to master their skills and encourages them in finding their areas in which they would like to become masters or in enabling them to choose a specific career option or in providing them the knowledge of their areas of higher studies. Co-curricular and extracurricular activities are inculcated in the curriculum system to enable the students to become effective leaders who are adept at taking calculative decisions.
