Department of Management Sciences

The quality of a University is measured more by the kind of students it turns out than the kind it takes in. - Robert J. Kibbee

True to these words, the Savitribai Phule Pune University has been shaping successful professionals and responsible citizens for decades. Established on the 10th day of February 1949, this grand academia has been providing a stage for millions of aspiring students to realize their potential and excel in all walks of life.

Founded in the year 1971, Department of Management Sciences (PUMBA), Savitribai Phule Pune University has since been a centre of learning and development. It has been constantly metamorphosing itself to be at the forefront of the evolutionary academic entity on one side and a skilled human resource provider to the corporate world on the other.

The Department of Management Sciences (PUMBA), Savitribai Phule Pune University , one of the first Management Institutes in India, is a pioneer by itself in the field of Management Studies.

Founded in the year 1971, PUMBA has since then come a long way. Being the official department for the MBA course in the Savitribai Phule Pune University has been an image booster for PUMBA. It has also helped add tremendously to PUMBA's contribution in the field of management. Situated in the midst of 414 acres of lush green surroundings of the Savitribai Phule Pune University, PUMBA provides just the right atmosphere to develop a perfect manager out of an individual.

Recently the University was granted the highest rating by the National Council of Assessment and Accreditation (Bangalore). The institutional grade 'A' with Five Stars was granted to the Institution making it one of the very few Universities in the country to have been so recognized. The University is also recognized by the University Grants Commission (UGC) as University of Potential Excellence. The Department, being one of the foremost departments of the University, was also subjected to the rigorous investigation carried out for the accreditation and is very glad to have come out successful. With the able and visionary leadership of the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. (Dr.) W. N. Gade, we are certain of maintaining and exceeding the present standards.

The future is here; the worldwide pace of change has accelerated dramatically and it is necessary for us to keep pace with these changes. But yet one may ask, why PUMBA? What makes us different ? And what makes us the best amongst the rest?

With approximately 360 students, filtered through the Common Entrance Test (CET) from all over the country, we have a blend of different cultures, resulting in students learning from each other, making lifelong friends and in many cases making business contacts for the future. Add to this the 40 odd foreign students coming from all over the World and PUMBA becomes a global Management School.

You sow a thought; you reap an action. You sow an action; you reap a habit. You sow a habit; you reap a character. You sow a character; you reap a destiny. It all starts with a THOUGHT.-Sir Winston Churchill
