Electives

From Term-3 onwards in the First Year, students are required to undertake Elective courses. A student enrolled in the PGDM(IB) programme is required to complete 43.5 credits from the Elective courses spread over Term-3 in the First year and Term-4 to Term-6 in the Second year of the Two Year Programme. Out of the above, 1.5 credits will accrue in Term-6 from the IIP, which is usually held after Term-3.

In addition to the above, we offer a compulsory Non-Credit Foreign Language Course for the students enrolled in the PGDM(IB) programme. Usually we offer students a choice of three languages viz. French, Spanish, and Mandarin. However, its Grade will not be calculated in the CGPA but it is reflected in the marksheet.

FORE School of Management offers dual specialization to all the students enrolled in its programme. This means that a student may specialize in at most two Areas. For students enrolled in PGDM(IB), one of their specializations must be International Business. In order to specialize in any Area of specialization, a student needs to take 15 credits of electives in the chosen area of specialization. This requirement of 15 credits is both minimum and maximum. Students are not permitted to specialize in any third Area, they are not allowed to opt for more than 9 credits out of the balance credit of courses from any ONE particular Area.

In order to provide the students opportunities to specialize in their area of choice, each Sentient Area offers Elective courses. The Sentient Area may specify certain Elective courses as Specialization Area Pre-requisite (SAPR) courses that must be taken by those students who have chosen that Area as Specialization-I or Specialization-II.

The Elective courses are offered by the following Sentient Areas:

  • Communication
  • Economics & Business Policy
  • Finance & Accounting
  • International Business
  • Information Systems
  • Marketing
  • Organisational Behaviour & Human Resource
  • Operations Management & Decision Sciences
  • Strategy

Specialization wise List of Courses

Note: The list of elective courses, including those specified as SAPR, is indicative and tentative. Students may opt for these courses subject to specialization requirements, availability, eligibility, limitations on class size, etc.
