Keeping in line with the dynamics of the contemporary requirements of education and employability in diverse fields, we are expanding our horizon by introducing an MBA (Law) program, whereby the focus can be laid on sensitizing the graduates with the intricacies of business administration and law, so that they can serve a dual purpose of a business administrator as well as a legal advisor to a corporate entity. It will be interesting to equip the aspiring graduates with the theoretical and practical dimensions of the integrated knowledge of Management and Law, through our course. The two-year MBA (Law) course is a distinctive program for the young and creative minds who understand the power of doing things differently. This program is for students who wish to gain expertise in both, legal and management practices.

The degree aims at bridging the knowledge gap by bringing law and management together. It is a career-oriented course which prepares students for careers in which an understanding of legal and management aspects is crucial such as corporate lawyers, law firm consultants, investment banker, business analysts and many more.
