Shri Ram College of Commerce is usually known for its undergraduate courses, what many people are unaware of is the post graduate courses offered by this college under the University of Delhi. SRCC is the only college which offers post graduate course in Global Business Operations (GBO). The GBO Programme is designed to provide a thorough knowledge of global business with emphasis on the implications of international business and the specialization required in carrying out business activities across national frontiers and is equivalent to a management degree in International Business.

This was introduced in SRCC around ten years ago and ever since students who are passionate about being a manager have been able to acquire advanced practical expertise in areas such as Human Resource Management, Accounting and Finance Trade, Translational Marketing and Information Technology. The course adopts a multi-dimensional and multi-disciplinary view of organizational objectives and in the process motivates students to appreciate the complex and rapidly changing business environment. The aim of the course is to deliver quality management education for excellence in international business.

GBO is a self-financing course with no government funding. It has its affiliation with University of Delhi and requires a minimum of two years or four semesters for completion. With a capacity of 62 seats the college claims a 100% placement for its students. There is 27% reservation for OBC, 15% for SC and 7.5% for ST. The eligibility for admission is minimum 50% marks in the degree examination (10+2+3) of a recognized university, for reserved categories there is a relaxation of 5% in total aggregate marks.

There is also a written test, group discussion and personal interview for admission to this course. For the written test, objective type questions are asked from areas of English language, Quantitative Ability, Logical Ability and General Knowledge. The written test is for two hours and is given 75% weightage; group discussion and personal interview are given 10% and 15% respectively.

Once the course is completed, there are many options that one might take up as a career. Students who believe in being the job providers go for entrepreneurship. Companies that come for placements offer good profiles like, research analyst, business analyst, business development, international brand management, HR profiles and finance profiles.

The college provides excellent faculty to its students many of whom are renowned authors like Dr. J.K. Thukral and Mr. Amit Sachdeva. There are guest lecturers too who provide the necessary corporate exposure. According to Akanksshi Verma, a first year student of this course “The things I found unique about this course after talking to many of my friends in other B-schools is the psychometric profiling of students, the international exchange programs, current affairs as part of our curriculum, the role plays and quizzes which happen weekly, the port visits and the like!”

The last date to apply for the 2014-2016 batch is January 15th, 2014. You can find all the details regarding the course here.

I wonder how people write about themselves so effortlessly and adequately too! I for one find it arduous and extremely time consuming since when asked about me I go in a sort of trance “discovering myself” and all that and finally come up with nothing. So after the process I can say I dislike studying, like novels and music and coffee. Also, I am a second year B Com (Hons) student in Shri Ram College.
