Department of Humanities & Social Sciences

Innovate. Achieve. Lead


The Department of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) at BITS Pilani, Dubai Campus serves a unique purpose in an institute dedicated to the study and excellence of science and technology. We believe that engineering and science are by their nature humanistic and socially-derived enterprises. Therefore, a holistic science and technology education must include liberal arts, economics, social and behavioral sciences where students learn to combine the application of scientific principles with a humanist, moral and social understanding of the world. The Department offers following programmes:
At Master's level, the Department offers two distinct programmes in the area of Management: i) Master of Business Administration (MBA);  ii) MBA in Business Analytics. Both these programmes are of two-year duration and are designed to meet the needs and requirements of fresh graduates and the working professionals from diverse educational and professional backgrounds. The MBA program gives students exposure to different domains of management such as, marketing, finance, human resource management, information systems and analytics, operations and supply chain management. The MBA in Business Analytics is designed to develop among students the necessary skills and problem-solving aptitude involved in the process of data-driven decision making in the area of business and management. With a robust business analytics curriculum, embedded with a strong and unique industrial component, and through various innovative pedagogies, the Institute aims to deliver these cutting-edge programmes in a dynamic and flexible learning environment.
