DU College of Vocational Studies with holds admission to five management courses
As the course programme in University of Delhi (DU) changed from FYUP to three-year mode the College of Vocational Studies withheld admissions to its five vocational management courses for this year. The reason cited by the college for the move is that these vocational courses have lost their relevance under the three-year mode.
If the students still pursue the course, it cannot secure them good jobs in future, the management feared.
Meanwhile, the college has released some of the cut-offs including office management and tourism along with B Com (honours) and economics (honours).
Under FYUP the college was allowed to launch Bachelor in Management Studies (BMS) in place of the vocational courses Last year. The college now wants DU to continue with BMS under the three-year format or to introduce a new course as Bachelor in Business Studies (BBS), stated the president of staff selection, Surender Singh.
It was a conscious decision taken by the admission committee of the college along with the staff association to pause the admissions for courses in human resource management, management of insurance, material management, marketing and management of retail business, and marketing and management of insurance that covers 385 seats.
According to Inderjeet Singh Dagar, principal and chairman of the admissions committee, the college cannot go against the university or the UGC’s directives and so going with the directive, BMS is no more valid for now.
