This is the collective syllabus for MBA and other Management programs offered by the School of Management Studies (SOMS) under IGNOU. The completion of different combinations of the subjects in the syllabus will enable you to be awarded with MBA or other Diploma Courses. See the subject combinations for  getting an MBA from IGNOU.

This syllabus is also available in the prospectus in Appendix 8. We saved this version just for you because finding it out from the prospectus every time you want to refer the syllabus is little tedious. Moreover it is always handy to have a separate copy of the syllabus to have a serious distraction free learning experience.
