Kingston University is delighted to offer its BBA (Hons) Business Administration course with the SVKM's NMIMS (deemed-to-be-university) in Mumbai, India to provide an alternative way to study a Kingston University degree.

For the following course, you can study the first two years of your Kingston University degree at NMIMS Centre for International Studies (CIS), formerly known as SVKM's Institute of International Studies, in Mumbai and then one year at Kingston Business School, London.

The program is a Dual Degree Program; following successful completion of third year at Kingston University, students are awarded a degree from NMIMS University as a BBA (International Business), and from Kingston University as BBA (Hons) Business Administration.

You also have the option of spending a fourth year in a work placement. After completion of fourth (optional) year, you will graduate with BBA (Hons) Business Administration with Professional Placement, a Kingston University degree.

It is a very cost-effective way to study for a UK bachelor degree, as you would save considerable costs both in fees and living expenses by spending the first two years in Mumbai, whilst still gaining the international experience and a Kingston University degree by transferring to the UK in the final year.

The collaboration has been running since 2006 and we have seen more than 500 students graduating via this programme to date, and we are extremely proud of their success. Our alumni are very well placed at junior management and senior managerial positions in top ranked companies.
