For this purpose, we provide skill development and entrepreneurship skill as well as professional training besides regular teaching. We enroll only a limited number of students who receive individual care and appreciation for their talents. Hence, in order to witness a holistic transformation, we invite such career hopefuls to our college.

MBA graduates are more sought after by large organizations, multinational companies and enterprises than the graduates of other programs. The students, after achieving an MBA degree, can enhance their entrepreneurship prospects too. Similarly, BHM course has high demand in the tourism industry and business world. We mainly focus on grooming the students to become entrepreneurs that would give them both fame and fortune.
The Covid-19 pandemic has forced us to adopt online classes again after reinstating physical classes. We are not sure about the pandemic that will disappear immediately. What are your plans to move ahead amid such unprecedented pandemic and epidemic threats and crises in the future?
The Covid-19 pandemic has excruciatingly affected us more than any other pandemics and epidemics for more than one and a half years. It taught us lesson to adapt ourselves to any sorts of stand-offish circumstances alternatively, thus giving us a gateway to online and distance learning as an alternative to educating our students. It is called a paradigm shift in education system of Nepal. Even during hard times, we tried to explore positive points in every twist and peril. Subsequently, we managed to introduce digital system to the academic sphere which carved out a way to interact with the world’s renowned professors and educationists as well as convened most academicians in one place to cope with the challenges collectively. Now, we are adept at operating virtual platforms to ease the teaching and learning activities. In this regard, we are fully prepared to resist any sorts of unprecedented pandemic in the future and conduct virtual classes as the best alternative to physical education.
