On MBA BITSAT is not on that level as it is in the technology as undergraduate level. How do you see it panning out as you moving long?
Several decade ago BITs Pilani was offering an MBA and then we constitutionally shifted to academic position where rather than offer post degree MBA BITs offering the first degree programme that is Master of Management study which was an integrated first degree programme like BE & M.Sc and it laid to MMS degree and it was also possible for the students to do dual degree one is the degree being MMS & other could be science & engineering in M.Sc or BE.
I must say that many of graduates MMS programme have gone to outstanding career.
But over the decade ago BITs found that it was happening that the maturity level of students coming into first degree programmes was such that many of them happened to get into the MMS more because they wanted to get into BITs.
Although MMS was extremely well thought so we gave the very strong science & engineering foundation in first two years followed by regress the principal of management & various domain & the same industry experience to practise in any other discipline but because the complexion of the students that coming in changing BITs back to offering Post Engineering degree MBA which what the university do roughly even now.
The reason of why the perception of MBA offered by the university may be as it is several and I don’t think this is the place for go into but some years back the university did careful study and it was determine that the university would establish some time in future and perhaps the time is not very distant now but it is too early to commit the exact time.
