Central College of Business Management

Central College of Business Management, affiliated to Pokhara University, was established in 2069 BS. Raktakali Education Foundation is such an organization which was developed along with the movement of 2037 BS for strengthening private education. Raktakali is fully devoted to producing skilled human resources for specific fields by analyzing national and communal needs. Central College of Business Management is run under such a mature and visionary institution.

Paras Shrestha is the Principal at Central College of Business Management. The college is well-equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for the assurance of integrated classroom with modern technology, which is a prototype of hands-on experience. Currently, the college offers BBA, BHM and BHCM program. Mr. Shrestha shared his view with College Readers. Excerpts:

What scope do you see in BHM and BHCM programs?

The college is exhaustively working on finding out the root cause of draining out of Nepalese youths in foreign lands for higher studies and has been adopting some of the controlling measures. The college has set priorities to stop Nepalese students from going to foreign lands; so, it is analyzing the world market and bringing newly introduced programs to the international arena. Its main aim is to provide globally demanded and newly emerged programs in Nepal. In this context, BHM and BHCM programs have been launched by the college. Moreover, the college links education with the global market. The college ties up the students with companies based on their interest and capacity. In this process, students should incur 50% of total expenses and the remaining is the responsibility of the college.

How is the job placement of your products in the global market?

We have prepared our graduates in such a way that they do not have to search any particular jobs, but they are sought after by the market instead. In this regard, our experienced graduates have been successful in getting jobs in various sectors. We not only tie them up with the companies also we create the environment that their invaluable contributions can be acknowledged by such companies. In addition, our products have ensured their leading roles in organizations along with their phenomenal contributions to nation building.

The scope of management education is increasing in the recent days. How do you analyze this progress?

At present, not only virtual companies but also companies with social responsibilities are merging rapidly. In addition, all the institutions and companies require good managers who can handle them with good management. In such a situation, increasing demand of management education is natural. We need human resources of management course at every institution and company. Due to these reasons, the trend of management education is surging.

In your opinion, are private-funded colleges in Nepal able to impart management education as per the demand of global market which is ever fluctuating?

In the present context, the Universities in Nepal are launching globally demanded courses by preparing globally recognized curricula. And private colleges in Nepal have invested a huge amount of money and their devotion for imparting quality education this is valid across the globe. In addition, most private colleges are administered by the visionary and efficient management which manages qualified faculty members. When we analyze the status and contributions of private college, I am fully confident that those colleges are capable enough to impart market demanded management education.

Could you please tell us what efforts of yours have contributed to quality enhancement of your institution?

We believe in team spirit and team coordination. We have developed the concept of partnership in various organizations that has been interrelated with educational activities. In this regard, we can proudly say we have extended our professional relationship to globally recognized institutions across the globe.

Pokhara University has denied admitting students who have got D+ in one of the subjects. As a member of OPEN, could you tell us how can this problem be addressed in a right way?

OPEN has been actively working on solving the problem which has been arisen because of the confusion in grade status. If the University adopts such a rigid policy, the flow of outgoing students will be increased in alarming rate. Last year, as many as 64000 students went to foreign lands for higher studies, and this year’s data show that there are around 75000 students leaving the country. And there is least hope that they would return to their native land upon attaining their qualification. In this regard, rather than adding the fuel to fire, the University should accept the students with D+ grade, which will definitely contribute to the step of the government to stop Nepalese from going abroad for higher studies.
