“The concurrent changes in commerce and industry requires the management practices to adjust with them at the same pace. B. K. School of Business Management in the last 39 years has tried to match the needs of industry now and then.”
(Founder of B K
School of Business Management)
B.K. School of Business & Professional Management was
established in 1976 as the Business School of Gujarat University to meet the
regional demand for professional managers.
Initially the School started with an intake of 30 students for its
two-year full time MBA programme. Over
the years the intake of students has been increased and now its stands at 90.
The School started a part-time MBA programme for serving
executives from 1983 and currently the intake for the same is 60. In the year 2006 the School started a PG
Diploma in Port Management Programme with an intake of 35 students. This programme was restructured as an MBA
programme in Maritime Management with an intake of 45 students in 2011.
A Management Academy was established in the School in 2011
and currently the Academy is offering 15 PG Diploma courses and one PG certificate
course in various related disciplines of Management. These are part time courses. These courses are intended to provide a
platform for persons who did not have formal management education or who need
to have specialisations in some specific sectors. A novel feature of these courses is that even
full time PG students pursuing other courses are also allowed to undergo these
courses for enhancing their employment potential.
The School also conducts a Ph.D. programme in Management and
currently there are 22 registered students who are pursuing research, of whom
one is a JRF and another is an NRI.
During the last five years about many students who were registered with
the School faculty have completed their Ph.D.
