MBA

Due to its focus on graduates who seek to develop self-reflective, analytic, collaborative, worldly and action mindset, the popularity of Masters In Business Administration (MBA) is increasing day by day in this competitive era. With the purpose of providing students the same quality and standard as they gain on international level, KFA at MBA was established under the affiliation of Lincoln University (LUC) Malaysia, an accredited program from Malaysian Qualifying Agency & Ministry of Education of Nepal.

KFA believes that Management students have to pass through 3 different schools in their life:

Number 1 School - The Academic Institute, where students acquire both academic and professional education;

Number 2 School - Corporates/Multinationals, where graduates go and work after the completion of their studies

Number 3 School - The Entrepreneurship Venture, which he/she establishes after acquiring knowledge and experience from Number 1 and Number 2 Schools respectively.

Along with various Teaching Methodologies, what sets MBA in KFA apart from other MBA colleges in Nepal is that, it offers Dual Faculty System (DFS) and effectively prepares students for Number 2 and Number 3 Schools in their lives. As per the DFS, all the subjects are taught by two resource persons.

KFA aims to fulfill the following objectives through MBA:

  1. Create the skills and abilities required to provide strong leadership and management in a complex global and changing business environment by providing students with an understanding of the management disciplines of accounting & finance, marketing and managing people. Elective subjects can further extend this knowledge base by accommodating student interests and vocational needs.
  2.  Offer opportunities to explore modern aspects of Business Administration which was not previously encountered and broaden aspects that were covered in previous studies.
  3. Develop a keen appreciation of some key theoretical concepts, major economic themes and significant current issues surrounding Business Administration
  4. Provide opportunities for practical application of the Business Administration perspective for businesses in the global, regional and national scenario.
  5.  Develop an awareness of the professional context in which graduates with Business Administration credentials find employment
  6. Assist students to further develop personal skills in critical thinking, research, bibliography, analysis, verbal argument and professional writing.

With these objectives, KFA’s mission is to be one of the top MBA colleges of Nepal in upcoming years by providing the academic excellence in this area.

Teaching Methodology

Dual Faculty System (DFS)

KFA Business School is the pioneer to implement Dual Faculty System (DFS) in Nepal. DFS is the unique Academic methodology under which two Resource Persons – Academic Professors (APs) & Professional Contributors (PCs) combinedly teach every subjects of MBA. While APs teach from textbooks that cover conventional and contemporary/emerging theories, PCs bring real case studies from their respective work experiences to align with the respective Units of the Syllabus.

Through DFS, KFA imbibes a complete 360-Degree approach to management learning. The School believes that until and unless real case studies are mapped with the Academic Contents, learning is incomplete. Our experience has proven that the students who have passed out MBA with DFS have out-performed their competitors in the practical workplace scenario as they were already exposed to both academic and practical teaching methodology thoroughly before even having work exposure.

DFS is highly effective and good learning experience for:

  • Students, who can get exposures from both worlds: theoretical knowledge and relevant practical experience/case studies;
  • Academic Professors, who can get first-hand exposure to practical aspects of the business; and
  • Professional Contributors, who can acquire knowledge from emerging theoretical frameworks

 

Business Enterprise Management Project (BEMP)

BEMP is a comprehensive Business Project undertaken in ‘Entrepreneurship’ during Second Year. Under BEMP, students will register a real firm/company (although with a very low capital) as per their interest area and perform real business activities, including Legal, Finance, Operations & Marketing. They will not only run ‘Operating Cycle’, of their business, which includes ’Supply’, ‘Production’, ‘Demand’ and ‘Collection’ functions, and understand the risks associated with these activities, but also explore and implement the ‘Risk Mitigations’ for these functions. In short, through BEMP, students will be ‘Business-Ready’.

 

Professional Entrepreneurship Group (PEG)

After the students are ‘Business-Ready’ via various subjects that they learn in the MBA as per School's DFS Methodology and upon successful completion of BEMP, they are now ready for PEG. 

This is an initiative taken by KFA to create entrepreneurship in the country. The students are given a week’s deadline to decide amongst themselves to choose any SME Entrepreneurship Project that they wish to start. Feasibility study of the chosen projects are carried out, discussed several rounds and once the preliminary framework is developed, the school will hire different experts/consultants to guide the students shape up their initiatives into concrete business proposals. The school will provide opportunity for the students to make presentations in front of potential investors, who will be identified and invited combinedly by KFA and respective students. Upon acceptance of the project by the investor/s, the necessary formalities of registration and other documentation are completed to set the project into operation after the completion of final exams or in any other appropriate timelines.
