Getting Started

Most final-year students (particularly third-year students) at Mumbai University and other Indian institutions are obliged to submit 1-3 copies of a black book containing your project report to your college/institute. Before completing the final project, several colleges require students to submit the Project Synopsis. A project synopsis summarises the whole project, including its goals, objectives, and other relevant elements.

Before submitting your final year Black book project to the college, ensure that it follows the proper format. A standard structure comprises the following elements: a college diploma, acknowledgment, declaration, a list of figures, a table of contents, and a project report. Once you’ve begun the planning process and you know the format you have to adhere to, it is easier for you to get started.

Template For Your Black Book Project

Your final year black book project should be following a particular format that should cover the following elements –

  • The Cover Page (Embossed on the black book cover)
  • Declaration
  • Acknowledgment: Index Thank you message to your coordinator, instructor, and principal
  • The Abstract 
  • An Overview/ Introduction
  • Research Design
  • The Company Profile
  • Data Interpretation
  • Findings
  • Recommendations/Suggestions
  • Final thoughts

Structure Of The Project

Every third-year BMS student is required to complete an individual project (for 200 marks). Your BMS course faculty/project will have a supervising instructor or BMS coordinator who must approve your project proposal. The project would have an internal supervisor (usually a college faculty member) and, if necessary, an external guide (approved by the Principal or the Head of the Department).

Do keep in mind that your black book project must be written well with a Times New Roman font, sized 12, with points double spaced on the A-4 paper throughout. Also, note that your project should be hardbound comprising of at least 50 pages. 

On the hardbound copy, the following information must be printed: 

  • Student Name
  • Class  & Section
  • Seat Number
  • Name of your internal guide
  • College name & department
  • Submission Date
  • University Name

It is required that TYBMS students must submit two copies of their project 4-5 weeks before the viva test. While both the copies must be certified, one will be retained by the college and the other will be returned to the student prior to the viva commencement date.
