To qualify BBA applicants must have earned at least 2.50 CGPA or CBGPA whichever is higher in their most recently completed Assessment Period. MBA applicants must earn at least 3.20 CGPA or CBGPA whichever higher in their most recently completed Assessment Period.
The applicant must explain and document in detail the reason(s) for their inability to meet their SolBridge financial obligations in the forthcoming Assessment Period. Awards will be limited to a maximum of 30% and apply only to the forthcoming Assessment Period. Consecutive awards will not be granted. BBA students may be eligible for no more than two awards during their program. MBA students are limited to one award during their program.
