FOURTH SEMESTER MBA Project – Guidelines
1. What is a project?
A project is a research assignment given to a student which generally requires a larger amount of effort and more independent work than is involved in a normal essay assignment. It requires students to undertake their own factfinding and analysis, either from library/internet research or from gathering data empirically.
2. Criteria for Selection of Projects
1. Project work should preferably be concerned with your organization or any other organization in your vicinity.
2. It should try to resolve the problem assessed in your project work.
3. Defining the project will be easier if you use the following acid test. A project should ideally meet these criteria.
a) Will the implementation of the project bring about an improvement in the present status of an activity and can this improvement be quantified?

or model based on which the data is collected, analysed and arguments developed?
c) Is the project applicable in other similar situations?
d) Does the project report take into account factual data which is
relevant to the particular situation?
The Project Work undertaken should be authentic and should contribute towards the development and growth of the subject. If the external supervisor feels that the Project Work undertaken does not appear to be authentic or does not contribute towards the growth of the subject or it has been merely copied from some source, the external supervisor has the right to reject the Project Work summarily. In that case, the student may be asked to resubmit the Project.
