Message From The Academic Chair
I am happy to learn that Global College International (GCI), has been set up to offer courses in management at undergraduate and graduate levels in affiliation with Mid-Western University, Nepal. In view of the socio-economic and demographic shifts, impact of new technology, growth of new business sectors and emerging development needs of the country, the importance of an educational institution with focus on grooming tomorrow’s business leaders, professionals and policy makers to meet the human resource needs of these sectors is especially important.
Business and Management education landscape in Nepal needs some soul searching. It is because economic liberalization and growing globalization of the market economy have had a greater demand for educational institutions to support a creative class of professionals in these areas. To what extent have we stood up to these expectations, demands and challenges are critical questions that require scrutiny.
GCI plans to offer a range of management courses for freshers, working people and entrepreneurs to help them hone their skills. These programs would give the working people a realistic time frame and adequate support to upgrade themselves and have the opportunity to apply what they learn to their working environment. Beyond the core, students will also be able to tailor their education to meet their goals and interests through a wide variety of skill building and concentration courses. These curricular structures and initiatives would help put GCI on the map and grow in stature. GCI is young and should take bold strokes on the educational canvas. There is enough space for it to draw more.
I congratulate GCI for launching its MBA programs with new orientation and innovative approaches and express my good wishes that the college becomes a state of the art institute and the center of excellence.
