The Department of Management Sciences (PUMBA) has proposed starting five new MBA courses — in services management, digital marketing, fintech, sustainability management and project management from the academic year 2021-22. Similarly, there are proposals from affiliated colleges about starting several new courses that are tuned to the current job market, and permission for which are being sought from SPPU.
The Indira Science and Commerce College has proposed to offer a new speciliasation, BCom in financial market, and also proposed a new BBA course in hospitality and tourism management, BMCC (Bruhan Maharashtra College of Commerce) Pune has sought permission to start a new BMS degree course in e-commerce operations while Symbiosis College wants to offer a new specialisation, BCom in human resource management, from the current academic year.
