SAMS B School follows the semester system for all the courses. An Academic year consists of two semesters and each semester consists of 15-18 weeks of Academic work equaling to 90 teaching days. The semester system accelerates the teaching learning process and enables the students to improve their learning constantly.


The choice based credit system provides a ‘cafeteria’ type approach in which the students can take courses of their choice, learn at their own pace, undergo additional courses and acquire more than the required credits, and adopt an interdisciplinary approach to learning. Courses in a program may be of three kinds: Core, Elective and Foundation. This system is followed for Bachelor and Master Degrees.

Core Course:

There are Core Courses in every semester. This is the course which is to be compulsorily studied by a student as a core requirement to complete the requirement of a program in a said discipline of study

Elective Course:

Elective course is a course which can be chosen from a pool of subjects. It may by:

Supportive to the discipline of study

Providing an expanded scope

Enabling an exposure to some other discipline/domain

Nurturing student’s proficiency/skill.

Foundation Course:

The Foundation courses are based upon the content that leads to Knowledge enhancement. They are mandatory for all disciplines.
