Affordable & Descent


I am currently pursuing M.Com from here. As this is an Open University, I can't really comment on the quality of teaching here. But there seems to be a lot of teaching staffs. In my opinion, the curriculum is almost up to date. And, yes the recent developments made in the field of commerce are surely included in the syllabus/curriculum. But, I must say that the Study Material provided by the University is definitely incomplete. It is incomplete in the sense that all the Study Materials provided are not in teo languages namely Hindi & English. Majority of them are in Hindi only, which limits it's acceptability by all the students. As this is a very important University for the students of all over Bihar, and is the only Open University of the state, providing of Study Materials in Hindi is also important. But the negatives of only providing it in one language can not also be ignored. And, I do think that this course will make it's students Job-ready if studied/completely seriously & sincerely.
