Mumbai : 9 May 2020,
A clarification is provided to the concerns raised by some candidates in their email addressed to the NMIMS University Officials about the SBM, NMIMS University, Mumbai Full-time MBA Programmes 2020-22. Please note the following:
1. The schedule of the formal start of the academic program (Term I) will be notified in accordance with the directions of the UGC, AICTE, and MHRD.
2. During the admission process, we had informed all the students about the offering of non-credit online preparatory or foundation modules starting in May 2020.
University has been receiving several queries about making these online modules available. In the past, SBM has been offering these modules in the month of May every year. This year due to coronavirus pandemic, SBM has decided to postpone the offering of the online material to 8th June 2020, for which you will receive the details in due course of time.
3. The objective of these non-credit foundational modules is to ensure that all students have a fundamental understanding of basic concepts and tools necessary to pursue the rigorous curriculum. The online foundation program is expected to extend up to the second week of July 2020. It will be available to all of you for learning online and preparing yourself before the regular term starts.
4. The students are expected to go through these non-credit preparatory online modules at their own pace, working remotely, with flexible schedules, and adopting their own learning style. Candidates, especially those who will be appearing for final year undergraduate examinations this year, can take advantage of the flexible nature of these modules to complete them as per convenience before the formal commencement of the program.
The MBA Program at the SBM, NMIMS University, is a rigorous program with AACSB Accreditation and has always been ranked among the top ten business schools in India. The students pan India seek admissions into this program after going through a very competitive admission process.
We wish to reassure you that the formal start of the MBA Program Term I Courses will be in accordance with the directions of the UGC, AICTE, and MHRD. This is done to ensure that all students get the time to prepare for their UG qualification examinations. We believe that by following the MBA Program Term I start dates as per AICTE/UGC guidelines enough time will be available to complete exit formalities with the employers by working professionals.
