Welcome to the Department of Management Studies, Comilla University, Cumilla. The Department of Management Studies (DMS) started its journey in the academic session 2006-07 under the Faculty of Business Administration and Management Studies at the opening of the university in 2006 with a view to imparting knowledge on management and management related subjects to the managers in the days coming and thereby playing a major role in the process of developing human resources in Bangladesh and the world as well. The main objective of DMS is to create opportunities for high quality education, research and training to the undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students in different functional areas of management through maintaining excellent academic environment and using high qualified teaching resources and other facilities in making them efficient and effective human resources keeping pace with the demand in the 21st century. Its vision is to provide business education of international standard for preparing business professionals to perform successfully in the national and global platform.
The course curriculum has been designed and revised bearing in mind the ever-changing needs in trade, commerce and industry in the context of competitive environment of the world. The syllabus of the programs offers all the relevant theoretical and practical courses needed to be competent and effective in the respective fields. At present, three programs, namely a four year BBA Program of 129 credits, a one year MBA Program of 36 credits and a two year MBA (Evening) Program of 66 credits, are running in the department. There are two concentration areas in both MBA and MBA (Evening) Programs: Human Resource Management (HRM) and International Management (IM). In fact, DMS always tries to provide professional knowledge and skills in different functional areas of management with a view to enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of managerial manpower in business and non-business organizations to face the emerging challenges in the competitive world of the new millennium. The department has always been involved in organizing all types of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities for the regular students. Industrial and study tours are organized regularly in the direct supervision of the faculty members. All modern facilities like air conditions, multimedia, internets, etc. are available in the department. Necessary text books, reference materials and periodicals in the fields of management, business, economics etc. are collected every year. Thus all types of management development programs are continuously organized in the department.
I do hope that the Department of Management Studies (DMS) will be the centre of excellence in the development of human resources of Bangladesh and the world as well in the days coming. In doing so, the dynamic leadership and the whole hearted efforts of all faculty members, staffs and students enormously helped the department to attain the present stage.
