Brief Profile of the Department

Welcome to the Department of Business Management, Tripura University (A Central University). Business management strikes a balance between theoretical and practical scenario in business. Over the years the business management department has been able to create an enabling environment for learning and development where future managers are fostered organically. Since a management programme is not only about classroom training rather it is a preparation for a career in corporate sector while staying anchored to academics. The pedagogical practice and dynamic course curriculum at the department has evolved over time by the confluence of different modern approaches backed by state –of – the – art technology infrastructure. At the Department of Business management, students not only learn through classroom teaching but also through case based learning, industry-academia interactions through lectures by senior level management executives, summer internship projects, inbound and outbound industrial tours in various corporate organizations and industries emerging in hard core business and corporate professionals. We are committed to train each student on the factors of corporate readiness through the fine blending of theory and practice by our experienced faculty members and industry mentors thus enriching life each day. Our faculties are involved in ‘cutting edge research’. They have been organizing seminars, management and faculty development programmes as well as executing government funded and consultancy projects. The holistic involvement of faculties across so many relevant areas is beneficial for imbibing management knowledge and professional growth of our students.

A three-year Bachelor Course in Business Administration leading to the award of the Degree of Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) was introduced by Tripura University from the Academic Session, 2003-2004. Department of Management (erstwhile School of Management), Tripura University, launched its MBA Programme in 2005-06 with a commitment to prepare wisdom managers and innovative entrepreneurs for the country. Currently, the programme offers dual specialization in Marketing management along with traditional areas of Finance, and Human Resource Management.

In his welcome address, Dr. Debarshi Mukherjee HOD DoBM expressed that a manager is expected to demonstrate higher level of performance and deliberations under trying situations to handle a wide array of business problems. Very often it has been observed that despite having gone through best of the books and texts students are found wanting in areas of application of theoretical underpinnings into practice. Steep learning curve is the key to scale corporate ladder where besides conceptual clarity one would need various other assets like people skills and articulation ability. Prof. Satyadeo Poddar Dean Faculty of Arts & Commerce explained to the students that given this tough mandate of today’s corporate environment, the department has embarked on a journey of holistic development of the students where students would organize, manage and control the event thus paving the first step towards shouldering bigger responsibilities in near future. Study of business management not only teaches the traits of functional leadership and articulation but it also inducts entrepreneurial aspects like fund raising skills in the young minds so that any venture receives a sustainable future. The entire schedule of Purvottaran 2017 was managed by the funds raised by the students which are quite a commendable effort. The faculty members who have arduously trained the students played the role of a facilitator by extending necessary guidance however the detailed operational planning at the micro level is managed by the students.

    The major highlights of the programme were fostering creativity, communication skills and corporate orientation through a series of competitive events like Ad-Mad Show, Business Quiz Competition, Skit, audio visual advertisement making, poster/ collage making and light recreational activities. Students of both MBA and BBA participated with full enthusiasm and left an indelible mark in the minds of the audience through their presentation skills.

    Dr. Indraneel Bhowmick Dean Students Welfare has lauded the efforts of the department of nurturing creative, compassionate and confident managers of tomorrow.
