The Department of Business Administration
started functioning from July, 2008 with a mission to impart quality education in a stimulating and innovative environment where students can be empowered with knowledge and professional skills. At present, the Department offers a full-time two-year Masters in Business Administration (MBA) program under the Gauhati University. The course offers dual specialization in the areas of Financial Management, Human Resource Management, Marketing Management and Production Management.
The Department is also planning to introduce Executive MBA programme in the near future. Moreover, a series of seminars on the recent trends in the field of Management, Management Development Program and Entrepreneurship Development Program and related activities have already been initiated. The Institute has already established an Entrepreneurship Development Cell (EDC) and Entrepreneurship Awareness Program for Students (EAPS) have been conducted to benefit the students inclined to undertake entrepreneurial ventures as career option. The Cell has entered into an understanding with the Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises - Development Institution, Government of India to conduct ´Business Skill Development´ Programmes for the students. Each programme is for duration of 22 days. Furthermore, the department also conducted ´Staff Development Programme´ with a noble initiative of updating the teaching fraternity on emerging trends and practices in management targeting 30 management faculty members of the N.E. region in May 2012. A few more SDPs with AICTE funding are expected in the coming years.
The Department boasts of its excellent young team of Faculty members with interdisciplinary background who are drawn from the premier institutes. ´The urge to learn and make others learn´ has been the motto of our teaching fraternity. Moreover, the Faculty represents an excellent conglomerate of industry-academia exposures. Accordingly, the latest trends in Management education are incorporated in our teaching methodology. This, however, is reflected from the fact that our first batch of MBA students has the distinction of securing top positions (1st & 3rd) in GU MBA Final Examination and getting job offers from various reputed organisations. The second & third batches of young managers have also come out very successfully in the University Examination and all of them have been placed in reputed organisations. Similarly, for the outgoing batch of 2013 also, 100% placement is expected and efforts are being put in order to achieve the same.
