GGDSD College in Sector 32, Chandigarh may soon introduce a full-time MBA programme for aspirants. After DAV College in Sector- 10, Chandigarh, Goswami Ganesh Dutta Sanatan Dharma College in Chandigarh’s Sector 32 is going to be the second college in Chandigarh that may introduce a full-time MBA programme from the next academic session.
MBA course at GGDSD College, Chandigarh
It was reported that proposal has been drafted to introduce the post-graduate course in GGDSD College, Sector 32, Chandigarh. The college is yet to send the drafted proposal to Panjab University for its approval. If Panjab University clears the proposal it will be further escalated to the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) for seeking their permission to introduce the course in the college. GGDSD College is a name to reckon with in commerce and management studies and that is why the college authorities have decided to introduce the MBA course in the college from next academic session.
DAV first college to Chandigarh to introduce the programme
This year, DAV College in Sector 10, Chandigarh became the first of its kind College in the city to introduce the business administration programme. Despite the introduction of the business programme the response in the current session had been lukewarm, as reported. There are 60 seats in the above-mentioned programme in the DAV College, Sector 10 and the college authorities have extended the last date for applying for admission to have more students in the current academic session.
Despite initial objection on the MBA affiliation to the DAV College, the Syndicate granted affiliation to DAV College’s management institute. The Syndicate also directed DAV College administration committee to hire new faculty members for the mentioned programme. The syndicate had objected the transfer of existing DAV College faculty members.
Another college awaiting nod
Apart from GGDSD College, Sector 32, Chandigarh and DAV College, Sector 10, Chandigarh, the Government College of Commerce and Business Administration (GCCBA) in Sector 50, Chandigarh had sent a proposal to the Union HRD (human resource development) ministry nearly a decade back to seek approval for appointing staff in the college. This nod was required to introduce the post-graduate course in the college. The college has not yet received any approval for the proposal.
