Background of the Program
The Department of Management has recently completed a major curriculum revision process on general management. Several circumstances impelled an intense review of the existing degree offerings, and resulted in changes to the curriculum that had been essentially unchanged for some years. Revising on developing this curriculum was driven by the following key objectives. The foremost of these was an interest in providing a curriculum that would meet stakeholders' needs.
An additional factor was an expressed interest on the part of Universities and government to maintain or increase enrollment on an aggregate basis. This naturally trickled down through the various universities' organs and was reflected in this response. With the implementation of the new Educational policy of the country, starting in the 2005 academic year, three year modularized curriculum has been developed and it is being offered to students that have been admitted from preparatory programs. In the preparation of the curriculum, as per the instruction of the Universities and Ministry of Education, a discussion was made with universities that offer education on management filed.
