Overview

Higher Diploma (BMAIS) course is offered to the students who already possess an undergraduate degree or its equivalent in other disciplines and would like to enter the Master’s degree (MAIS) program rather than the undergraduate degree (BAIS) program. 

BMAIS is a one and a half year program (3 semesters – 6 courses in the first semester and 5 courses in the last two semesters) that can be completed in a maximum of 4 and a half years time. The minimum academic qualification to enter the IOU Higher Diploma program is a Bachelor’s degree (in any field). 

Higher Diploma is an accredited program. Students who successfully complete BMAIS will be given a certificate. 

There are three options for graduates of BMAIS program:

  1. Students are automatically eligible for the IOU MAIS degree program the following semester.
  2. Students may join the MAIS degree program later if they choose to take some time off.
  3. Students may follow MAIS program with any other institution of their choice.
