Pokhara College of Management, Pokhara
What are the principal reasons that persuade students to pursue the BBA and BCIS at your institution?
The first and foremost reason is the academic environment that we provide for quality education. Second, students hear about our good results, number of Dean’s List achievers and our successful graduates being the examples for them, to persuade themselves to join our Bachelor’s Program. Excellent in management education is our focus and we have highly qualified and motivated teaching faculty. In fact, our history has established our goodwill and that is our asset which attracts students.
What remarkable achievements has your college made so far?
Among the Pokhara University affiliate colleges, it has become the first choice of students to study management at PCM. The retention of quality is as similar as the best colleges running PU programs in Kathmandu.
More than 500 students have graduated from PCM till now and they are doing their best in their field in Nepal and abroad.
How do you set your priorities to help students excel in their learning endeavours?
We set our priorities very wisely and very meticulously. We prioritize education first followed by extra-curricular activities, and then real world exposure. That’s all. We are mere facilitators, students are the doers and they excel in learning by their own strength.
How does technology help in your workplace?
It is easy to feel how it has helped us, but it is difficult to detail everything helped by technology. We have applied it in e-learning, e-library, communication among us and with the parents or other people outside the college, advertisement, event management and so on. We can’t think of PCM without the use of technology.
What is your major breakthrough as chief of this college?
I am keeping the whole PCM family united heart to heart for the common goal. Breakthroughs are yet to come.
What suggestions would you like to give to plus two graduates for higher studies?
I would like to suggest that it is the time to shape up your future, students. While going for higher studies, make good decisions and true commitments to rigorous learningand bring out your inner strength, talent and energy to add something beautiful to this world you live in. Don’t think of employment, money and happy life only, think about something that you introduce new and good to all. Student life demands struggle, but that sharpens your skill to understand life and its purpose. Since you may have diverse backgrounds and diverse goals and PCM may or may not be your choice, but your life is 100% your choice.
