Guwahati: Assam downtown University (AdtU) has introducted a one of its kind Master of Business Administration (MBA) 2-year full-time programme through which candidates will get placed before they even begin their MBA classes.
AdtU has made a strategic alliance with Talentedge, an online higher education platform which has tie-ups with several companies. It offers MBA aspirants with a programme that addresses the questions about the normal fear and insecurity of whether they would get a job or not after pursuing MBA. This programme ensures students a seamless move from being a student, to an intern and finally a productive employee.
The MBA programme screens and select only those candidates which pass the written test and interview, and posses good communication skills.
In the first six months, they will be taught general management courses followed by specialization in the next six months which would be delivered by industry practitioners and subject matter experts.
The next 12 months are the most exciting phase for the students where 3 months would be taught by the company where the students are placed followed by a deep internship of 9 months in the same company.
The entire process will familiarise the students with the industry, moving beyond the limits of classroom teaching. It will show them how it is in real life, and how does it works in the office setup.
AdtU’s programme offers five industry and futuristic oriented MBA specializations- Sales and Marketing Management, Applied Human Resource Management, Logistics & Supply Chain Management, Investment Banking and Data Sciences & Data Analytics.
The new course will begin with at least 20 students, and admit maximum 60 candidates.
