The programme develops global business leaders who can provide leadership at any level, in an increasingly global economy. The curriculum teaches students the underlying disciplines of management and provides graduates the flexibility to pursue careers in a variety of industries across geographical and functional boundaries. The primary teaching pedagogy at SDSB is “Case Method of Teaching” which sets it apart from all other business institutes in the region. At SDSB, we exercise the Case Method of Teaching through close collaboration with Harvard Business School and the University of Western Ontario, both of which are pioneers in this teaching philosophy. We take pride in our innovative and evolving curriculum, keeping it relevant by maintaining a close relationship with the business world.
The MBA programme was recently revised on the basis of current international best practices incorporating feedback from alumni, students, and the industry.

MBA Consultancy Project (MCP):
The MBA Project is a mandatory requirement of our MBA curriculum. Groups of students work with an organisations on a managerial issue/project over a course of 10 weeks. They construct and present an exhaustive solution to the client and faculty audience at the end and are graded accordingly by both. In many cases, these solutions are actually implemented by the clients and give successful results amidst real business environments.

MBA Externships provide students with an experiential opportunity to visit an organisation. Each year, various organisations invite students to their offices. These externships offer unique insights into their day-to-day operations, people, and culture. Externships can also enable more interactions with senior leaders and alumni within the organisation.Popular times for externships lie during the semester break every year i.e. December and January Student volunteer as temporary resources in short assignments, projects, case studies, business plans, research work or a helping hand in ongoing business operations.
