All undergraduate programs of NSBM are designed to enable the students to acquire much-needed industry exposure on a full-time basis from the end of their second year of study onwards, where lectures for third and fourth years are conducted only on weekends. This is a unique feature of NSBM which assures the employability of graduates. Industry Partnership Program plays a vital role in this unique model of NSBM.
