According to a report in Times of India, Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC), University of Delhi might introduce a two-year Masters of Business Administration (MBA) postgraduate degree programme from the year 2017. With a profile similar to the MBA programmes offered by IIMs, it will add on to the choice of MBA colleges in DU, which is currently offered by the Faculty of Managament Studies (FMS).
Expected to offer 65 seats, the course is divided into four semesters, with over 18 additional courses. SRCC currently has a two-year Global Business Operations (GBO) diploma. Once the MBA course receives a nod of approval, it would replace the GBO diploma, as informed by RP Rustagi, officiating principal of SRCC. This move will allow students to get an MBA degree rather than a postgraduate diploma, which is a big plus. The curriculum has also been revised in order to make the MBA programme on the lines of those offered by IIMs as far as the main subjects and electives are concerned. This will be a major upgradation from the GBO diploma. As for the admissions to the programme, details will be awaited on how the GBO admissions will be eased into the new format, if the diploma is scrapped this year itself.
The course is currently pending approval by the university, and will not require approval from the University Grants Commission (UGC) as it will be funded by the college itself.
