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.
