1. Title
Name of the Programme: Master of Business Administration (MBA).
Nature of the Programme: MBA is TWO YEAR FULL TIME post-graduate degree programme.
2. Preamble: The revised curriculum for MBA is developed keeping in mind the national priorities and
international practices. It also attempts to align the programme structure and course contents with student
aspirations & recruiter expectations.
2.1 Need for Revision of the Curriculum: The MBA programme curriculum of the University of Pune
was last revised in the AY 2008 and there was a need for revision of the curriculum in view of the global
aspects of businesses and economies, dynamismin the industry practices, evolution of technology,
emergence of new business and organizational forms and the evolving expectations of key stakeholders
viz. students, the industry and faculty members at large.
Specifically, the triggers for the comprehensive revamp of the curriculum are a)
New Skills & Competencies desired due to dynamic business environment: Jobs of today
were perhaps not created about 5 years ago. This aspect has a direct linkage with contents and
structure of syllabus across the Knowledge, Skills and Attitude (KSA) dimensions, which calls for
frequent and meaningful updating of the curriculum.
b)
Concerns expressed by the Industry: The industry has expressed concerns about the need for
improvement in the communication skills, inter-personal skills, basic domain knowledge, awareness of
business environment, technology proficiency, and attitude of the MBA graduates. Newer and innovative
evaluation methods are necessary to address these concerns of the industry.
c)
Application Orientation: There is a pressing need to imbibe application oriented thinking, based
on sound knowledge of management theories, principles and concepts. Management education needs
to move out of the classrooms and instead focus on group activity, field work, experiential learning, etc.
This can be achieved only through a radical change in the evaluation pattern and course delivery
methodology.
d)
Changing mindset of the Learner: The profile of the students for the management programme,
their learning styles and the outlook towards higher education has undergone a gradual transformation.
The expectations of the students from the MBA programme have changed over the last decade.
e)
Integrate a basket of skill sets: B-Schools are expected to imbibe varied aspects of ‘learning
beyond the syllabus’ through innovative curriculum design, contemporary syllabus, effective delivery and
comprehensive evaluation.
Specifically the following skill sets are in focus:
i. Reading & Listening Skills
ii. Problem Definition& Problem Solving Skills
iii. Application of Technology Tools
iv. Mastery of Analytics - Quantitative Aspects
v. Cross-Functional perspectives
vi. Sensitization to Cross-Cultural skills
vii. Orientation to Global perspectives
viii. Peer-based Learning –Ability to Work in groups
ix. Learning by application and doing – Experiential learning
2.2 MBA Programme Objectives: The MBA programme prepares a student for a domestics and global
careers in diverse sectors of the industry. The MBA programme facilitates learning in theory and practice
of different functional areas of management and equips the students with an integrated approach to
various functions of management. However, the demand for managerial skills is not limited to the
industry. Managerial talent is much sought by the Government Sector, NGOs, non-corporate sector as
well. Institutes, Faculty and Students need to move away from the excessive focus on industry and look
at needs and demands of broader sections of the society. Likewise entrepreneurial perspective of job and
wealth creation with a social context also needs to be integrated into various aspects of the programme.
University of Pune - MBA Revised Syllabus 2013

Specifically the objectives of the MBA Programme are:
1. To equip the students with requisite knowledge, skills &right attitude necessary to provide
effective leadership in a global environment.
2. To develop competent management professionals with strong ethical values, capable of
assuming a pivotal role in various sectors of the Indian Economy &Society, aligned with the
national priorities
3. To develop proactive thinking so as to perform effectively in the dynamic socio-economic and
business ecosystem.
2.3 Highlights of the New Curriculum: The New Curriculum intends to add immense value to all
stakeholders by effectively addressing their requirements in more than one way by:
1. Adoption of Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) and Grading System in line with National
policies and International practices.
2. Enhancing the brand value of the MBA programme of the University of Pune.
3. Providing the much needed flexibility to individual Institutes to carve a niche for themselves.
4. Emphasizing the centrality of the student and teacher-student relationship in the learning process.
5. Focusing on ‘Concurrent Evaluation’ i.e. continuous evaluation throughout the programme.
6. Empowering the Institutes through cafeteria approach – by providing Generic Core, Subject Core,
Generic Elective, and Subject Elective Courses. This shall provide in-built flexibility in the
curriculum to help the institutes to offer tailor made courses preferred by students, from a wider
basket of courses.
7. Evaluating all Half Credit Courses completely on Concurrent Evaluation pattern.
8. Emphasizing Experiential Learning aspect through Half Credit Courses.
9. Supplementing traditional classroom teaching/learning with focus on group activity, field work,
experiential learning, self-study, projects, etc.
10. Incorporating new specializations viz. Supply Chain Management (SCM), Rural & Agribusiness
Management (RABM), Family Business Management (FBM), Technology Management (TM) –
thereby providing wider choice to the students.
11. A thorough revamp of Systems&Operations Specializations to make them more meaningful and
attractive to BCA, BCS, BE students.
12. Providing opportunity to students to choose courses from other electives to explore
cross-functional issues.
13. Emphasizing on Research, Inter-personal, Analytical, Cross-Cultural, Global aspects of
managerial careers throughout the curriculum.
3. Pattern: The Programme comprises of 4 Semesters and adopts the Choice Based Credit System
(CBCS) and Grading System.
3.1 Choice Based Credit System: Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) offers wide ranging choice for
students to opt for courses based on their aptitude and their career goals. CBCS works on the
fundamental premise that students are mature individuals, capable of making their own decisions.
CBCS enables a student to obtain a degree by accumulating required number of credits
prescribed for that degree. The number of credits earned by the student reflects the knowledge or skills
acquired him / her. Each course is assigned a fixed number of credits based on the contents to be
learned& the expected effort of the student. The grade points earned for each course reflects the
student’s proficiency in that course.CBCS is a process of evolution of educational reforms that would yield
the result in subsequent years and after a few cycles of its implementation.
3.1.1 Key features of CBCS:
1. Enriching Learning Environment: A student is provided with an academically rich, highly
flexible learning system blended with abundant provision for skill development and a practical
orientation that he/she could imbibe without sacrificing his/her creativity. There is a definite
movement away from the traditional lectures and written examination.
2. Learn at your own pace: A student can exercise the option to decide his/her own pace of

learning- slow, normal or accelerated plan. Students can select courses according to their
aptitude, tastes and preferences.
Continuous Learning & Student Centric Concurrent Evaluation: CBCSmakes the learning
process continuous. Likewise the evaluation process is not only made continuous but also made
learner-centric. The evaluation is designed to recognize the capability and talent of a student.
Active Student-Teacher Participation: CBCS leads to quality education with active
teacher-student participation. This provides avenues to meet student’s scholastic needs and
aspirations.
Industry Institute Collaboration: CBCS provides opportunities for meaningful collaboration with
industry and foreign partners to foster innovation, by introduction of electives and half credit
courses through the cafeteria approach. This will go a long way in capacity building of students
and faculty.
Interdisciplinary Curriculum: Cutting edge developments generally occur at the interface of two
or more disciplines. The interdisciplinary approach enables integration of concepts, theories,
techniques, and perspectives from two or more disciplines to advance fundamental
understanding or to solve problems whose solutions are beyond the scope of a single discipline.
Employability Enhancement: CBCS shall ensure that students enhance their skill/employability
by taking up project work, entrepreneurship and vocational training.
Faculty Expertise: CBCS shall give the Institutes the much needed flexibility to make best use of
the available faculty expertise.

3.2 Time Schedule: An academic year is divided into two terms – I and II. Term I shall have Semester I
and III, whereas Term II shall have Sem II and IV. In each semester, courses are offered in 15 teaching
weeks and the remaining 5 weeks are to be utilized for conduct of examinations and evaluation purposes.
For the students, each week has 40 working hours spread over 5/6 days a week, consisting of lectures,
tutorials, assignments, class participation, library work, special counseling, Sports, project work, field visit,
youth welfare and social activities.
University of Pune - MBA Revised Syllabus 2013

3.3 Course: A “Course” is a component of programme, i.e. in the new system; papers will be referred to
as courses. Each course is identified by a unique course code. While designing curriculum, courses have
defined weightages, called credits.
Each course, in addition to having a syllabus, has learning objectives and learning outcomes. A course
may be designed to comprise lectures/ tutorials/ laboratory work/ field work/ project work/vocational
training /viva voce etc. or a combination of some of these.
3.3.1 Core Courses: The Curriculum comprises of Core Courses and Elective Courses.
Core courses are the foundation courses of management education. They are compulsory for all the
students. Core courses are of two types: Generic Core & Subject Core.
Generic Core: This is the course which should compulsorily be studied by a candidate as a core
requirement to complete the requirement of a degree in a said discipline of study. Therefore, Generic
Core courses are mandatory and fundamental in nature. These courses cannot be substituted by any
other courses. Such courses are also known as Hard Core Courses.
A Hard core course may be a Theory, Practical, Field based or Project Work based subject which
is a compulsory component in the Programme Structure.
Subject Core: A Core course may be a Subject Core if there is a choice or an option for the candidate to
choose from a broad category (grouping) of subjects (specializations / electives). These are also known
as Soft Core Courses.
Following Specializations shall be offered:
1. Marketing Management (MKT)
2. Financial Management (FIN)
3. Information Technology Management (IT)
4. Operations Management (OPE)
5. Human Resources Management (HR)
6. International Business Management (IB)
7. Supply Chain Management (SCM)
8. Rural &Agribusiness Management (RABM)
9. Family Business Management (FBM)
10. Technology Management (TM)
Students shall study 2 Full Credit Courses & 4 Half Credit Courses in Semester III and IV each for
specialization courses i.e. a total of 12 specialization courses.
 Generic Core courses in Semester I provide foundations of management.
 Generic Core courses in Semester II focus on functional areas.
 Generic Core courses in the Semester III and IV are integrative in nature along with the Subject
Core subjects.
3.3.2 Elective Course: Elective course is a course which can be chosen from a pool of courses. It may
be:
a) Very Specialized or advanced course focusing on a specific aspect
b) Supportive to the discipline of study
c) Providing an extended scope
d) Enabling an exposure to some other discipline/domain
e) Nurturing candidate’s proficiency/skills.
Generic Elective: An elective course which is common across disciplines / subjects is called a generic
elective. ‘Generic Elective’ courses develop generic proficiencies amongstthe students.
University of Pune - MBA Revised Syllabus 2013
5
Subject Elective: A ‘Discipline centric’ elective is called ‘Subject Elective.’
 Generic Elective courses, in Semester I and II facilitate self-development and skill building.
 Subject Elective courses, in the Semester III and IV are focused on a specialization.
Open Elective: A subject elective course chosen generally from an unrelated discipline/ subject, with an
intention to seek cross-functional exposure is called an Open Elective. A Subject Elective offered in a
specialization/elective may be treated as an Open Elective by other specialization/ elective and
vice-a-versa.
Choice of Cross Functional Half Credit Courses (Subject Elective chosen as Open Elective): Out of
the 8 half credit subject elective courses (to be taken collectively in Semester III and IV); a student may
choose 2 half credit subject courses from another elective (i.e. other than his chosen elective). The
student may exercise this choice either in SemesterIII and/or in SemesterIV. The final say in this matter
shall rest with the Director of the Institute.
Generic and Subject Electives will provide flexibility to each Institute to offer courses based on: a) Intended positioning of the Institute
b) Targeted Industry Linkages – sectoral requirements and networking at the Institute Level
c) Student Composition – rural/urban, commerce/engineering/others, freshers/experienced, etc.
d) Present & Future Faculty Competencies – generic and specialization areas
e) Locational Aspects - rural/urban/ semi-urban.
An Institute may offer varied combinations of Half Credit courses to various groups of students enrolled in
a particular academic year / enrolled for a particular specialization based on student interests and
competencies, faculty availability.
3.4 Pre-requisites for successful implementation of CBCS: The success of the CBCS also requires
certain commitments from both the students and the teachers.
1. The student should be regular and punctual to his classes, studious in carrying out the
assignments and should maintain consistency in his tempo of learning. He should make
maximum use of the available library, internet and other facilities.
2. The teachers are expected to be alert and punctual and strictly adhere to the schedules of
teaching, tests, seminars, evaluation and notification of results.
3. All teachers should notify the tentative schedule of teaching and tests of the entire semester,
including the dates of tests, dates of score notification and all other schedules, which can be
planned in advance.
4. The teachers are expected to adhere to unbiased and objective evaluation and marking of
concurrent evaluation scores (internal examinations) which will not only maintain the confidence
of the students, but, at the same time, ensure that merit is given due credit.
5. Transparency, objectivity and quality are the key factors that will sustain a good CBCS system.
6. At the post-graduate level, and in a professional programme, the syllabus is to be looked
upon as the bare minimum requirement to be fulfilled and sufficient emphasis shall be laid
on contemporary aspects, going beyond the syllabus.
3.5 Credits
Credit: The definition of ‘credits’ can be based on various parameters - such as the learning hours put in,
learning outcomes and contact hours, the quantum of content/syllabus prescribed for the course.
The credit system requires that a student progresses in the academic programmes not in terms of time
(years or semesters), but in terms of courses.
Each course is assigned a certain credit, depending on the estimated effort put in by a student. When the
student passes that course, he/she earns the credits associated with that course.
University of Pune - MBA Revised Syllabus 2013
6
In the Credit system the emphasis is on the hours put in by the learner and not on the workload of
the teacher. Each credit can be visualized as a combination of 3 components viz. Lecture (L) +
Tutorials (T) + Practice ( Practical / Project Work ) (P) i.e. LTP Pattern.
The effort of the learner for each Credit Point may be considered to have two parts –
a) One part consisting of the hoursactually spent in class room / practical / field work instructions
and
b) The other part consisting of notional hours spent by the Learner in self-study, in the library, peer
interactions, case study, writing of journals and assignments, projects etc. for the completion of
that course.
Every course offered shall have three components associated with the teaching-learning process of the
course, viz.
a) Lecture (L): Classroom sessions delivered by faculty in an interactive mode
b) Tutorial (T): Session consisting of participatory discussion/ self-study/ desk work/ brief seminar
presentations by students and such other novel methods that make a student to absorb and
assimilate more effectively the contents delivered in the Lecture sessions
c) Practice (P): Practice session /Practical / Project Work consisting of Hands-on experience / Field
Studies / Case studies that equip students to acquire the much required skill component.
The teaching / learning as well as evaluation are to be interpreted in a broader perspective as follows:
a) Teaching – Learning Processes: Classroom sessions, Group Exercises, Seminars, Small
Group Projects, Self-study, etc.
b) Evaluation: Tutorials, Class Tests, Presentations, Field work, Assignments, Research papers,
Term papers, etc.
In terms of credits, for a period of one semester of 15 weeks:
a) every ONE hour session per week of L amounts to 1 credit per semester
b) a minimum of TWO hours per week of T amounts to 1 credit per semester,
c) a minimum of TWO hours per week of P amounts to 1 credit per semester,
A course shall have either or all the three components, i.e. a course may have only lecture component, or
only practice component or a combination of any two or all the three components.
The total credits earned by a student at the end of the semester upon successfully completing a course
are ‘L + T + P’. The credit pattern of the course is indicated as L: T: P.
If a course is of 3 credits then the different credit distribution patterns in L:T: P format could be 3:0: 0,
1:2: 2,
2: 0: 2,
2: 2: 0, etc. The credits of a course cannot be greater than the number of hours
(per week for 15 weeks) allotted to it.
Full Credit Course: A course with weightage of 3 credits is considered as a full credit course. (Except for
Summer Internship Project which is a full credit course with 6 Credits.)
Half Credit Course: A course with weightage of 2 credits is considered as a half credit course.
The MBA programme is a combination of:
a) Full Credit Courses (100 Marks each) : 3 Credits each
b) Half Credit Courses (50 Marks each) : 2 Credits each
3.6 Adoption of Credit and Grading System
As per national policy and international practices, it is proposed to adopt the Credit and Grading System
for the MBA programme w.e.f. AY 2013-14.
University of Pune - MBA Revised Syllabus 2013
7
3.6.1 Rationale for adoption of the Credit and Grading System:
a)
Learner’s Perspective: The current practice of evaluation of student’s performance at the end of
a semester is flawed. The students are expected to express their understanding or mastery over the
content included in their curriculum for a complete semester within a span of three hours and their efforts
over the semester are often completely ignored. It also promotes unhealthy practice of cramming before
the examinations and focusing on marks rather than on learning.
b)
Evaluation Perspective: The present system of evaluation does not permit the flexibility to
deploy multiple techniques of assessment in a valid and reliable way. Moreover, the current practice of
awarding numerical marks for reporting the performance of learners suffers from several drawbacks and
is a source of a variety of errors. Further, the problem gets compounded due to the variations in the
marks awarded in different subjects. The ‘raw score’ obtained by the learner, is, therefore, not a
reflection of his true ability.
In view of the above lacunae, it is desirable that the marking system used for the declaration of results is
replaced by the grading system. The system of awarding grades provides a more realistic picture of
learner’s ability than the prevailing marking system. Excellence in quality education can be achieved by
evaluating the true ability of the learners with the help of continuous evaluation.
3.6.2 Salient features of the grading system:
1. In this system, students (learners) are placed in ability bands that represent a range of scores. This
ability range may be designated with alphabetical letters called as ‘GRADE’.
2. Grading reflects an individual learner’s performance in the form of a certain level of achievement.
3. The Grading system ensures natural classification in qualitative terms rather than quantitative terms
since it expresses a range /band of scores to which a learner belongs such as O,A,B,C,D,E & F
4. Grades can be interpreted easily and directly and can be used to prepare an accurate ‘profile’ of a
learner.
5. A properly introduced grading system not only provides for a comparison of the learners’ performance
but it also indicates the quality of performance with respect to the amount of efforts put in and the
amount of knowledge acquired at the end of the course by the learners.
3.6.3 Basics of Credit and Grading System:Grading is a method of reporting the result of a learner’s
performance subsequent to his evaluation. It involves a set of alphabets which are clearly defined and
designated and uniformly understood by all the stakeholders.
Grading is carried out in a variety of ways. The classification of grades depends upon the reference point.
With ‘Approach towards Grading’ as the reference point, Grading may be classified as:
a) Direct grading: When the performance exhibited by the examinees is assessed in qualitative
terms and the impressions so obtained by the examiners are directly expressed in terms of letter
grades, it is called, ‘Direct Grading’.
b) Indirect grading: When the performance displayed by the examinees is first assessed in terms
of marks and subsequently transformed into letter grades by using different modes, it is called,
‘Indirect Grading.’
With ‘Standard of Judgment’, as the reference point Grading may be classified as:
a) Absolute grading: The method that is based on a predetermined standard which becomes a
reference point for the learner’s performance is called ‘Absolute Grading’. This involves direct
conversion of marks into grades irrespective of the distribution of marks in a subject.
b) Relative grading: Relative Grading is popularly known as grading on the curve. The curve refers
to the normal distribution curve or some symmetric variant of it. This method amounts to
determining in advance approximately what percentage of learners can be expected to receive
different grades, such as O,A,B,C,D,E,F. In this grading system the grade is not determined by
the learner’s performance but on the basis of group performance.
University of Pune - MBA Revised Syllabus 2013

Absolute grading has several advantages such as:
a) The procedure is simple and straightforward to use,
b) Each grade is distinctly understandable,
c) The learner has the freedom to strive for the attainment of the highest possible grade and
d) It enables the learners to know their strengths and weaknesses.
The few limitations of Absolute Grading method are:
a) The distribution of scores is taken at its face value regardless of the errors of measurement
creeping in due to various types of subjectivity.
b) Besides, the cut-offs of different categories are also arbitrarily decided.
It is proposed to use the Indirect and Absolute Grading System for the MBA programme, i.e. the
assessment of individual Courses in the concerned examinations will be on the basis of marks. However
the marks shall later be converted into Grades by a defined mechanism wherein the overall performance
of the learners can be reflected after considering the Credit Points for any given course. Theoverall
evaluation shall be designated in terms of Grade.
3.7 Session Duration:Each teaching-learning, evaluation session shall be of 60 minutes. However,
institutes shall have the flexibility to define their time slots in a manner as to use their faculty and
infrastructure resources in the best possible way.
3.8 Courses Offered: Institutes are free to offer only a select number of specializations from amongst the
list provided by the University. Likewise, institutes may provide only a sub-set of the generic electives,
subject electives as prescribed semester-wise in the Programme structure. It is envisaged that Institutes
offer only those specialziations/electives for which they have the required faculty competencies and
relevant resources.
It shall be mandatory for the Institutes to provide all information relating to the specializations offered,
generic electives, subject electives, their respective credits, evaluation pattern, etc. to all the students so
as to enable them to make an informed choice. Such information should be hosted on the
website/prospectus of the Institute in sufficient advance, prior to commencement of the classes. Other
information such as the credits, the prerequisites, and syllabus shall also be hosted on the website of the
institute.
3.9 Registration: It is mandatory for every student, to register every semester, for the courses opted
under CBCS system, for that semester.
Such registration shall be the basis for a student to undergo concurrent evaluation, online evaluation and
end-semester examination. Application forms for University examinations are to be filled up based on the
choices finalized during the registration process and submitted to the University along with the prescribed
examination fee.
3.9.1 Registration Process:
i.
Each student, on admission shall be assigned to a Faculty Advisor who shall advise her/him
about the academic programs and counsel on the choice of courses considering the student’s
profile and career objectives.
ii.
With the advice and consent of the Faculty Advisor the student shall register for a set of courses
he/she plans to take up for the Semester.
iii.
The student should meet the criteria for prerequisites, if defined for a course, to become eligible
to register for that course.
iv.
The Institute shall follow a selection procedure on a first come first served basis, determining the
maximum number of students and counseling the students if required to avoid overcrowding to
particular course(s) at the expense of some other courses.
v.
It is expected that a student registers for 26 credits in Semester I, II, 29 Credits in Semester III
each and balance 19 credits in Semester IV.

However fast learners (under accelerated plan), may be permitted to register for 2 full credit / 3
half credit courses in excess of the normal credits defined for a semester. However, registration
for Repeat courses (backlogs) is allowed in excess of this limit.
Likewise, slow learners, may be permitted to register for 2 full credit / 3 half credit courses less
than the normal credits defined for a semester.
A candidate may register for a minimum of say, 20 credits per semester, but it is possible that
he/she may earn less than 20 credits in a semester. It may be theoretically possible that he/she
may just earn ZERO credits in a semester. However, he/she should register for credits less than
or equal to permissible maximum and more than or equal to permissible minimum per semester,
excluding the courses of earlier semester(s), for which he/she has not earned the credits
(uncleared courses) if any.
Students shall have to register for the courses for the semester within first week of Semester I
and immediately after conclusion of the preceding term for subsequent Semesters - II, III and IV.
i.e. The fresh inducted batch shall register for various courses at the end of the first week of their
Semester I after their induction. They will register for Semester II courses immediately at the end
of Semester I and likewise for subsequent semesters. In Semester I the registration window shall
be open for sufficiently long duration to take care of late admissions.
The maximum number of students to be registered in each elective course shall depend upon the
physical facilities available. Every effort shall be made by the Institute to accommodate as many
students as possible.
Students who do not earn credits for an elective course (generic / subject / open) are permitted to
opt for another elective course (generic / subject / open) in case they feel to do so. In such a case
they shall be said to have dropped the original course and opted for a new one. Alternatively,
they are permitted to continue with the same elective course (generic / subject / open) i.e. If a
student secures a F Grade in say course no 111 for which he has opted in Semester I, during the
successive attempt he may drop course 111 and take up another course from 107 to 115, or
continue with 111.
The Institute may not offer a course if a minimum of 20% of students are not registered for that
course.
4. Eligibility: The eligibility for admissions shall be defined by the Competent Authority viz. AICTE / DTE
Maharashtra State for the relevant academic year.
5. Examination:
Pattern of Examination: The evaluation scheme comprises of:
a) University Evaluation
b) Concurrent Evaluation
For each full credit course –
a) 70 marks shall be evaluated by the University and
b) 30 marks shall be evaluated by the respective Institute.
For each half credit course –
a) 50 marks shall be evaluated by the respective Institute.
There shall not be any University evaluation for half credit courses.
(Evaluation Scheme for Summer Internship Project is detailed separately.)
5.1 University Evaluation
There shall be University evaluation for each full credit course as per the time table announced by the
University. The evaluation by the University for Full Credit Courses shall comprise of two parts:
a) Online Examination for 20 marks.
b) Written Examination (subjective – concept plus case study / application oriented type) for 50
marks.

5.1.1 Online Examination
The University of Pune shall conduct an online examination for each full credit course. This examination
shall be objective in nature and shall carry a weightage of 20 marks per full credit course. Students will
appear for the online examinations in their respective institutes. Online examination shall constitute a
separate head of passing for the full credit courses. Passing shall be at 40%, i.e. Grade E.The student
does NOT have a facility of Grade Improvement, in online examination, if he/she has secured any grade
other than F.
The Controller of Examinations of the University of Pune shall announce the online examination window
of 3 days per semester i.e. a window of 3 days for Sem I and another window of 3 days for Sem III (in
term I and likewise for term II) for the examination, in consultation with the Dean – Faculty of
Management. The online test shall be conducted for all 4 semesters during each term. A similar window
of 3 days for Sem II (backlog) and another window of 3 days for Sem IV backlog shall be announced in
term I and vice-versa for Sem I backlog and Sem III backlog in term II for students who score Grade F in
the online exam.
There shall NOT be any retest for those students who is absent for the online exam during the declared
examination window period. Any student, who is absent for the online test during the regular term, can
take the online test for the specific course in the next term and his grades evaluation shall be updated
accordingly in the revised Grade Card.
Generally the schedule for online examination will be as follows:
a) Semester I: In the 8th/9thweek after the commencement of semester I.
b) Semester II, III and IV: In the7th/ 8thweek after the commencement of respective semester.
The date declared by DTE for commencement of classes as per CAP process shall be the
reference date for Semester I.Only for Semester I, in case of unforeseen circumstances the Controller
of Examinations (CoE), University of Pune, in consultation with the Dean of the Faculty of Management
may postpone the examinations for Semester I. However the online examinations shall not be postponed
beyond 10th week after commencement of the classes / course for Semester I.
For Sem II, III and IV the reference date shall be the term commencement date declared by the
UoP.
The syllabus for the online examination shall be the first two units in each full credit course (2 out of total
5 units, i.e. 40% of the syllabus). The duration of online examination for each course shall be of 25
minutes.
There shall be one mark for each correct response. There shall be 20 questions – each carrying
one mark.ALL THE QUESTIONS SHALL BE COMPULSORY. The questions shall be of different variety
within the objective format.
The Faculty of Management shall devise objective question bank comprising questions of varying degree
of difficulty, and of different types, in sufficiently large number for each course for the exclusive purpose of
the online examination. The objective question paper shall be developed in real time, randomly using an
ERP / Learning Management System.
The Institutes shall ensure the provision of necessary IT infrastructure and internet bandwidth, backup
power supply, for the smooth conduct of such online examination.
The score of each candidate for each course shall be known immediately after the conclusion of the
online test and the Institute shall display the scores of all students for the online test within 3 days of the

The performance of a student will be evaluated in terms of two indices, viz.
a) Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) which is the Grade Point Average for a semester
b) Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) which is the Grade Point Average for all the completed
semesters at any point in time.
Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA): At the end of each semester, SGPA is calculated as the
weighted average of GPI of all courses in the current semester in which the student has passed, the
weights being the credit values of respective courses.
SGPA = Grade Points divided by the summation of Credits of all Courses.
∑ {C * GPI}
SGPA = ----------------------for a semester.
∑C
Where GPI is the Grade and C is credit for the respective Course.
Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA): Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is the grade point
average for all completed semesters. CGPA is calculated as the weighted average of all GPI of all
courses in which the student has passed up to the current semester.
Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) for the Entire Course
∑ {C * GPI}
CGPA = ---------------------for all semesters taken together.
∑C
Where GPI is the Grade and C is credit for the respective Course.
Note:If a student secures F grade in either or both of Concurrent Evaluation or University Evaluation for a
particular course his /her credits earned for that course shall be ZERO.
5.5.2 Scaling Down of Concurrent Evaluation Scores: The marks obtained by the student for the
Concurrent Evaluation components conducted by the Institute (i.e. out of 30 marks), in the Full Credit
Courses, in Semester I to SemesterIV, shall be scaled down, to the required extent, if percentage of the
marks of Concurrent Evaluation exceeds the percentage of marks scored in the end semester University
Examination by 25% for the respective course. Scores of Online Examination are not part of the scaling
down formula. i.e. (percentage of marks scored out of 30 in concurrent evaluation) – (percentage of
marks scored out of 50 in university evaluation) should not exceed 25%.
The marks obtained by the student in Half Credit Courses are not subject to scaling down. Likewise, the
marks obtained by the student in Concurrent Evaluation for the Summer Internship Project (Course 304)
shall not be subjected to scaling down.
5.5.3 Attendance:The student must meet the requirement of 75% attendance per semester per course
for grant of the term. The Director shall have the right to withhold the student from appearing for
