Students aspiring to do an MBA (Masters of Business Administration) will soon have the option of enrolling themselves in Delhi Universitys two new MBA courses, which will soon be introduced under Faculty of Commerce and Business in Delhi School of Economics (DSE).

This will be the first time that an MBA program will be offered by DU. Currently, students wanting to pursue an MBA opt for Faculty of Management Studies in the city.

The proposal to pass the two courses MBA (International Business) and MBA (Human Resource and Organisational Development) is scheduled to be discussed in the universitys academic council meeting on June 21.

To introduce the two courses, DU is doing away with its Masters in International Business (MIB) and Masters in Human Resource and Organizational Development (MHROD) courses, which are currently being offered by the university.

According to the agenda of the meeting between DU and Department of Commerce, the two had been communicating regularly regarding the implementation of the courses. Since MBA is a UGC (University Grants Commission) specified degree, it was suggested that DU may award an MBA degree, but mention the specialisation in parenthesis. In a subsequent meeting with the department, it was decided to restructure the two courses MIB and MHROD to MBA (IB) and MBA (HR&OD).

A four-member committee was then constituted by the department to revise the course structure and keep the course content up-to-date with contemporary practices in the two fields.

Known for being affordable and providing quality education, Faculty of Management Studies, has over the course of years become a popular choice for students wanting to pursue an MBA. The universitys proposal to offer two new MBA courses with specialisations, will be a cause for cheer for thousands of aspirants who apply for MBA courses every year.
