The aim is to provide a clearer picture of the way ahead – enabling more informed decisions and choices.
As in many other industries, regulators of the telecommunications industry have aimed to bring affordable products and services to the general public, while at the same time allowing participating companies to make adequate profits. All levels of government regulate telecommunications, from the city that controls the Placement of telephone wires up to the nation state which issues licenses to broadcast. Because of the nature of telecommunications and the importance of the information it carries, national and international politics are also heavily involved. The purpose of this course is to investigate the institutions that affect the use of telecommunications. Some time will be devoted to the various parts of the government that are involved in this endeavor, such as the Department of Telecommunication, TRAI and TDSAT. The major thrust of the course will be toward the role of international institutions, including the ITU, UNESCO, and the various satellite organizations such as INTELSAT.

To that end, Edmonds' uses a horizontal financial statements model that allows students to see the simultaneous impact of a single business event on all of the key financial statements (the income statement, the balance sheet, and the statement of cash flows). This model also provides an effective means for comparing the effects of one transaction with the effects of another transaction. These are the big picture relationships that both accounting majors and general business students need to understand to function effectively in the business world.

ECO608 Macro Economics & Economic Analysis for Business Decisions
This course is an amalgamation of macroeconomics and managerial (or applied microeconomics). Macro Economics deals with the principles of economics that involve the measurement of and interrelationships between aggregate economic variables, and policies that help ensuring sound health of economy. In the context of globalisation and greater role being assigned to the private enterprise in the erstwhile regulated economies, it is becoming a real challenge for evolving and fine-tuning macroeconomic policies in line with the rapid changes occurring from time to time both in the national and global economy. The first part of the present course has been designed to help students to familiarise with major macroeconomic variables that determine the macroeconomic state and influence pace of growth of an economy. The course also aims at exposing the management students to influences of such policies on the economic environment in which business organizations need to operate, so that they could make timely and appropriate policy decisions.

Business and economic environment of a country remains dynamic and more so in the present era of globalisation. Latter part of this course is concerned primarily with basic microeconomic principles and concepts, and analyzing of the economic and business environment for arriving at suitable managerial decisions that can be implemented by commercial firms for desired business outcomes.  

Internship
Aegis works closely with industry to make our students to have better understanding of their requirement. To accomplish that we organize 2 months compulsory internship with industry as a part of the course. During the course students work on various consultancy assignment with various companies.

MPTM Live consulting project
Application is the acid test for management theory. Without the project element, too much EMPTM content would escape unchallenged. The project enables you to combine content, integrate subject areas and most importantly test ideas directly with feedback from the real world.
Live consulting project represents excellent value for your sponsoring organisation. Each assignment relates specifically back to your employer or some other client firm.

And you benefit too. The project represents major part of your MPTM assessment and is the perfect opportunity to integrate the skills and knowledge you have acquired and apply them to a major business challenge that your organisation faces. A successful project can have a major impact on your reputation and even position within your organisation.
Projects cover every possible subject including: internal strategic reviews, new market entry strategies, change management challenges, business diversification, mergers and acquisitions and performance measurement.
