HYDERABAD: The city will be home to one more business school which is being billed as Asia's first open economy-focused institution of its kind.
United world School of Business on Wednesday announced the launch of its Hyderabad as well as Singapore campuses.
The school already has centres in Mumbai, Kolkata, Ahmedabad and Delhi. A twoyear diploma in business management will be offered to postgraduate students on the Hyderabad campus. The intake for this academic year will be around 120 students.
Spelling out the choice of the city as its South India centre, school director Tridibesh Bandyopadhyay said: "After researching many cities we finalised Hyderabad since it has growing potential for business studies. Even though there are many other Bschools in town, we are confident that student interest in business management is increasing."
Bandyopadhyay said the curriculum was up to date. "The business landscape has changed drastically in the last ten years. The country needs capable human resource professionals with a global approach. Indian entrepreneurs and businessmen have been acquiring foreign companies of late," he noted.
Selection of students would be based on CAT/MAT/XAT percentile, psychometric assessment, academic background, group discussion, personal interview and instant presentation.
Elaborating on the institute, KV Iyer, dean of the Hyderabad campus said: "This school constantly endeavours to introduce new and innovative management programmes to enhance skills and competence of students as well as young professionals."
Admissions will soon begin at the 25,000-sqft campus in Jubilee Hills.
The students will be charged Rs 5.5 lakh for the two year course, which would also include a one-month visit to the school's Singapore campus.
