DU to Combine Three UG Business Programmes
New Delhi: Delhi University (DU) is planning to combine three undergraduate (UG) business programmes from the upcoming academic session i.e. 2013-14. The programmes that will be combined are, Bachelor of Business Studies (BBS), Bachelor of Financial Investment and Analysis (BFIA) and Bachelor of Arts (BA) (Hons) in Business Economics (BBE).
Earlier, the University confirmed the merger of three traditional programmes, namely, Bachelor of Arts (BA), Bachelor of Science (B Sc) and Bachelor of Commerce (B Com). The University has appointed a committee to prepare a new programme of equal standard. As per the University official, the committee has not come onto any conclusion so far, and decision on the merger of the programmes is likely to be taken by the end of March month.
Umesh Rai, Director, South Campus, DU, has said that most of the components in BBS, BFIA and BBE are common so it makes sense to combine all of them and make an interdisciplinary and less specialized programme. After all, the undergraduate level programme is meant to impart integrated knowledge not specialization in a single stream, he further added.
