In the revised course structure effective from academic year 2008-09,
all compulsory courses get over in the first year. The list of
compulsory courses is developed around the following five Building
Blocks: (i) understanding the basics of disciplines and functions of
business management; (ii) understanding human and organization behavior;
(iii) understanding the environment and society; (iv) knowing ICT tools
well; and (v) knowing application areas of ICT. The core curriculum

The courses in the Behavioural Sciences have been designed so as to give
students, who plan to become administrations, managers and executives, a
better insight and appreciation of human problems in both industrial and
non-industrial organizations. The behavioural sciences draw upon
concepts and conclusions from the interrelated fields of psychology,
anthropology and sociology and aim at a synthesis of these in
understanding the processes of organizational growth and development,
organizational decision making and the role of individual and group
behaviour therein. The courses, therefore, attempt to provide a deeper
knowledge of organizational behaviour with specific emphasis on Indian
situations. In addition, most concerted efforts are directed towards
equipping the students with necessary behavioural skills for management
of human resources in an organization.
The Group offers two compulsory courses: Behavioural Sciences I and
Behavioural Sciences II in the first and second terms respectively.
These two courses provide the basic foundation for understanding
individual, group and organizational processes utilizing theories and
concepts with an interdisciplinary behavioural sciences approach. The
core courses are particularly geared towards better appreciation of
human and organizational phenomena in the Indian context.
