The main objectives of the programme have been construed as:

Accordingly, the existing syllabus for Bachelor Degree Programme has been thoroughly revised with an emphasis on the following:

1. Opportunity to develop skills either in a functional area of management or in a business sector of national and regional relevance. 

2. Mandatory pursuance of high priority papers in Financial Accounting, Cost Accounting, Indian Financial System, Financial Management and Entrepreneurship Development. 

3. Systematic arrangement of elective and elective Honours papers with alternative choice at the level of some individual paper (to accommodate individualized regional deficiency) for evenly distribution of efforts and stress.
