Namaskar!!I am happy to state that the Post Graduate Department of Business Management offering MBA degree has been steadily growing from strength to strength since its inception in 1989. The salary and Return on Investment has been increasing continuously and we are now ranked among top institutes in the country (https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/indiatoday/images/bodyeditor/202010/B-School-Nov2-6-x954.jpg?7s0RmgBENkHU4i3tO3PrCCVzeQBXwHn7). Both, my faculty colleagues and students have worked very sincerely and with dedication to make this difference and the programme of Sardar Patel University a highly successful and sought after one.
Challenge for shaping and developing managers had never been so demanding in so called ‘new normal’ of Covid 19 pandemic era. India faces renewed challenges, but this is the time to prove our mettle. It is well said that ‘when going gets tough, tough gets going. Everyone has to contribute for India to emerge stronger in future. A strong support and mentoring from Hon. Vice Chancellor, Professor (Dr.) Shirish Kulkarni is the guiding force. Our strong Alumni base facilitated us to remain in good stud during pandemic as well. Our strength also emanates from expert friends from industry, who interact through visiting sessions with students on a regular basis. During present challenging times Alumni have been a solid support for students and department. After successful completion of examinations of senior students all have either joined in new jobs or are waiting to join their maiden jobs. The Pandemic impacted batch has also secured almost 95 per cent placement (those who were interested) and today at the end May, 2021 we are just awaiting full placement again.
The department has successfully placed all the 2021 batch students for Summer Internship in online mode. We are sure to be able to pass through the turmoil successfully again during 2021. Our responsibility is to equip future managers with desired skills and capabilities to meet challenges. We are constantly striving to upgrade ability of our students through rigorous project work and assignments needed for industry and economy. Students are exposed to outside world through seminars, workshops and guest lecture etc. continuously.
I am confident that our students, who have a track record of accomplishment through sincere and hard work, will make useful contributions to every organization they join.
