Ranchi University reduces MBA seats at Institute of Management Studies to 140

Ranchi UniversityRANCHI: Ranchi University has decided to reduce the number of MBA seats at Institute of Management Studies (IMS) to 140. RU authorities said it was aimed at improving the quality of education.

But the university’s announcement initially shocked students who were planning to apply for MBA course at IMS. Earlier, there were 280 seats.

However, the university also has plans to introduce the course in two of its affiliated colleges – Ranchi and Doranda College – bringing some relief to students.

Kumar Raja, president of National Students Union of India, said, “We protested at the VC’s office against the decision, but now that two more colleges are likely to get a nod to start the course, we are relieved and hope that it will give students an opportunity to study MBA.”

Admission forms for the course is likely to be available from June.

Both these colleges have prepared a proposal for starting the course and sent them to RU.

M Raziuddin, pro vice-chancellor of RU, said, “Ranchi and Doranda college has sent us a proposal seeking permission for starting masters in business administration. As we have decided to reduce the number of seats from 280 to 140 at IMS, if two more colleges were to start the course, students who will not be able to get admission at IMS can opt for either of these two colleges.”

The proposal will be tabled in the RU academic council meeting, which is to be held on April 29. As per the proposal, the above-mentioned colleges will have 100 seats each and fee for the course will be Rs 40,000.

Dr U C Mehta, principal of Ranchi College, said, “Three PG departments of our college have been shifted to the Basic Science building and we have space. We are planning to start the course here.” I am hoping that arrangements for starting the course will be started immediately after the meeting of academic council.”

The syllabus, which has been revised to be on a par with top B-schools, will be the same for all colleges. There will be four semesters in the course of two years and each semester will have six papers.

Vishal Singh, a commerce graduate said, “I was planning to apply for MBA at ISM. But I was apprehensive about whether I would get a seat

because my graduation marks were low. Now that they are starting course in two more colleges, I am hoping to get through.”
