Master of Business Education 


Compared to education in general, business education is of recent origin in this part of the world. The advent of Business Education in our country can be traced back to the later half of 1960. Starting at the university level, the Business Education branched out to college and school levels. Now a days hundreds and thousands of secondary, post secondary and tertiary educational institutes offer courses for creating skill and knowledge for manning the business. These have given rise to shortages of business education teachers. The shortages are vividly felt when the questions of methodology of teaching business related subject arises. There is lack of any systematic and well-thought out endeavors to groom teachers and trainers with application of proper and sound methodology in our country, although many countries embarked on such effort by offering Master of Business Education Programme.

We earnestly feel that there is a latent demand for trained teachers for teaching business related subjects at educational institutes as well as in the business houses; and therefore Objectives of the MBE Programme are to

  • a) Create human power for teaching business related subjects
  • b) Enable trained teachers to be absorbed in business arena and business graduates to be absorbed smoothly in the teaching arena
  • c) Create opportunities for any graduate ie. B.A, B.Com, B.Sc (Pass or Honors) to get attractive jobs either in academic institutions or in business
  • d) Provide skill and knowledge to enable one to become business executive with knowledge & expertise of training and education
