Teaching Methodology

Dual Faculty System (DFS)

This is the unique Academic Methodology and KFA is the only college in Nepal to implement DFS in a highly structured manner. Under DFS, two Resource Persons – the Academic Professors (APs) & the Professional Contributors (PCs) teach each and every subject of MBA Program combinely. While APs teach from the textbooks covering conventional and contemporary/emerging theories, PCs bring the real case studies from their respective work experiences to align with respective Units of the Syllabus. 

Through DFS, KFA imbibes a complete 360-Degree approach to management learning. The School believes that until and unless real case studies are mapped with all the Academic Contents, learning can never be complete. Our experience has proven that students who have passed out MBA with DFS have out-performed their competitors in the practical workplace scenario as they were already exposed to both academic and practical teaching methodology thoroughly even before joining respective organizations.

DFS is highly effective and good learning experience for:

  • Students, who get exposures from both worlds: theoretical knowledge and relevant practical experience/case studies;
  • Academic Professors, who can get first hand exposure of practical aspects of business; and
  • Professional Contributors, who can acquire knowledge from emerging theoretical frameworks

Business Enterprise Management Project (BEMP)

BEMP is a comprehensive Business Project undertaken in ‘Entrepreneurship’ subject during Second Year. Under BEMP, students will actually register a real firm/company (although with a very low capital) as per their interest area and they perform real business activities, including Legal, Finance, Operations & Marketing. They will not only run ‘operating cycle’, of their business, which includes ’Supply’, ‘Production’, ‘Demand’ and ‘Collection’ functions, and understand the risks associated with these activities, but also explore and implement the ‘risk mitigations’ for these functions. In short, through BEMP, students will be ‘Business-Ready’.

Professional Entrepreneurship Group (PEG)

Once students are ‘Business-Ready’ through various subjects that they learn in the MBA Program as per School's DFS Methodology and also upon successful completion of BEMP, they are now ready for PEG. 

This is an initiative taken by the School to create entrepreneurship in the country. The students are given a week’s deadline to decide amongst themselves to choose any SME Entrepreneurship Project that they wish to start. Feasibility study of the chosen projects are carried out, discussed several rounds and once the preliminary framework is developed, the school will hire different experts/consultants to guide the students shape up their initiatives into concrete business proposals. The school will provide opportunity for the students to make presentations in front of potential investors, who will be identified and invited combinely by KFA and respective students. Upon acceptance of the project by the investor/s, the necessary formalities of registration and other documentation are completed to set the project into operation after the final exams or in any other appropriate timelines.
