All these courses are equivalent to 3 credit hours at BBA level. These credits cannot be used for replacing any of the MBA level courses as these will be treated non credit bearing courses and are only for the purpose of completing MQP and no transcript shall be issued. Most of these courses are offered at the SUC BBA program enabling the aspirants to pick up any of these courses during the regular semesters of the BBA program or opt for MQP schedule. If the number of students enrolled for MQP is few in number then they may be inducted into the BBA courses. If they are not currently offered at the BBA program, they will be exclusively planned and scheduled for MQP classes provided it is operationally viable.

With regard to the planning and scheduling of the MQP, typically a student with a non-business degree background will take minimum of one or maximum of two semesters to complete the program. However, hypothetically, a student who has studied in engineering discipline might have completed a course in quantitative methods and/or statistics and/or management. In this scenario, student may be exempted from the requirements of those courses at the MQP level; hence, a student of this scenario may be able to complete the MQP in one semester.​
