Vice Chancellor's Message: Prof. Yogesh K. Tyagi

Shri Ram College of Commerce is one of the leading institutions associated with the University of Delhi. The college was established 87 years back and over the years has imparted quality education in the areas of commerce and economics. In 1999, the college started a Post Graduate Programme in Global Business Operations. The introduction of this course was very timely and over the years, this course has contributed significantly to the development of human resources for the corporate world. The college is encouraging students to actively seek placements through their own efforts. Given the excellent academic achievements of the students and all the training they have received, I hope that the industry would show greater enthusiasm in providing the students employment opportunities that commensurate with their abilities and training. I also hope that the students of the course will emerge as leaders of tomorrow and serve both the society at large as well as their institutions.

Chairman's Message:Ajay S. Shriram

The Global Business Operations (GBO) programme provides postgraduate students learning and exposure to succeed in the tough business world. India's economy is growing rapidly and so is India's competitiveness. However, opening up of the economy creates many challenges and opportunities for business managers. Today, virtually every company in the world is interested in the Indian market, and the biggest issue for corporates is to get good effective people. Indians, with their sharp mind and intelligent hardworking capability, are excelling wherever they are. SRCC, as a leading educational institution in the country, is assisting the brightest students to make a successful career. The GBO programme attracts outstanding students and provides them knowledge and technical expertise to succeed and be the best. This year too, we welcome the incoming batch to SRCC, to experience the excitement and education of the GBO programme.

Principal's Message: Dr. R.P. Rustagi

The emergence of a globalised world order has offered new challenges that require new responses to business practices and operations. The Global Business Operations (GBO) Programme offers a course keeping in mind the global perspective of business where a multidimensional approach is a necessity.

The GBO Programme is meant to enhance the potentialities of management professionals to work both within and across national boundaries, cultures, organizational structures and legal systems. Shri Ram College of Commerce is a pioneer institute for the study of business and economics in India. Rated as topmost business college, it attracts some of the best students from across the country. The GBO Programme was introduced as a post-graduate course in the University of Delhi, exclusively at SRCC, in 1999.

It is a specialized course designed for professionals involved in the administration of international business operations. Theory sessions in the classroom are appropriately complemented by actual industry exposure. Interaction with industry is an important part of this programme and the college organizes several events including the National Colloquium, an academia-industry interface, every year at Vigyan Bhawan. Seminars, special lectures, talks and other events are also organized to maximize the students' exposure to the global business scenario and the changes that constantly come about across the world.

The SRCC Alumni are important contributors to industry and are an inseparable part of the SRCC legacy. Quite a few of our students occupy prominent positions in business, academics, and industry. The inputs received from them provide enormous advantage to our students. Needless to say, placements offered to our students are some of the best in the country. It is a pleasure to present to you this Handbook for the GBO Programme 2013-14. It is a brief account of the course, its objectives, academic requirements and facilities. Let me also thank you for your interest in this programme and hope that you will feel motivated to take up the challenges of this course.

Coordinators' Message: Dr. Anil Kumar & Dr. (Ms.) Suman Bhakri

The movement towards a market-oriented economy with expansive business frontiers creates new challenges. Management strategies must address themselves to the twin phenomenon of managing diversity and convergence of business operations across the world. These contemporary requirements of world trade and commerce need able human resource inputs that can understand and relate to the contemporary business environment.

The GBO Programme endeavors to combine insights from a number of different academic disciplines and functional areas. The course adopts a multi-organisational objective and in the process motivates students to appreciate the complex and rapidly changing environment. The seminars, case studies, role-play, management games, quizzes and projects undertaken also emphasize this perspective.
