VIT-AP University is a part of Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT), which is India’s number one private engineering institution and designated as Institution of Eminence by the Govt. of India. VSB believes that every manager should be strongly grounded in the fundamentals of management, thus, the BBA programme is designed to provided breadth and suitable depth with well-designed curriculum built on the liberal education foundation and exposure to engineering and technology. Moreover, for the first time in the country, the programme comprises a unique blend of introductory science, engineering and technology courses as well.

The pedagogy is based on experiential learning and focuses on application. Special care is taken to target multiple intelligences of the students to ensure effective learning.

The management courses provide the necessary knowledge and competencies in management functions. These prepare the students to be global managers who take contextually sensitive decisions integrating human needs, technology and ecology, to impact organizations, communities and the society. We believe in preparing the students to face the harsh realities of life rather than just a job.
