Years of experience
How we got started
B.K. School of Business 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 nine students who were registered with the School faculty have completed their Ph.D.
At the inception of the School there was a sanctioned strength of 13 faculty members. During the last five years the School has been having an average strength of eight. The School has, however, been able to get good visiting faculty to meet the shortfall.
