With the above said quote, the fourth day of the orientation program gave the students of BBA 1st semester a value-added advantage in the form of preparatory classes i.e. “Module for Beginners” wherein sessions namely “Finance for Non-Finance” and “Maths for Non-Maths” students. The session was conducted by the highly intellectual and experienced faculty members of the management department.
These short-term modules dealt with concepts in areas entailing Economics, Basic Accounting, Finance & Investments and Mathematics for beginners (students) who didn’t have any background in the said domains and required a good grip of the concepts so that they are able to comprehend the same, once the actual classes & sessions begin.

These modules were followed by ‘Practice Sessions’ were students grasped the concepts through outbound learning & learnt the concepts in the form of activities, assignments, multiple choice questions, group discussions, etc. Moreover, once these 10-hour modules of each domain will be completed, the students will be felicitated with the certificates based on the evaluation test conducted by the concerned faculty members at the end of each term.
