"Their dreams, nurtured by their immense hard-work, perseverance and integrity, ensure that reaching the summit becomes a habit. It is at this stage of their education, when the summit is nothing more than a base camp that they are accustomed to, that our students turn to their most ambitious"

Pune has long since come to be regarded as the Oxford of the East by scholars from across the globe. Whether it is in the areas of science and technology, commerce and management or literature and arts, Pune is home to some of the finest and most prestigious institutions in the country.

Principal to this educational axis is the University of Pune, one of the country's most respected universities. The University owes its accomplishments over the years to the quality of research and teaching that takes place within its forty-eight departments and interdisciplinary schools.

The Department of Management Sciences (PUMBA), amongst the leading departments of the University of Pune, ensures that its students are provided with every possible input required to afford them a clear understanding of the fundamentals of management. Armed with this self-assuredness that comes only with the mastery of one's subject, our students are in the best position to transform their dreams into reality. This modest yet highly effective approach towards education has made PUMBA's students stand apart in today's result-oriented corporate world.

Our students, by virtue of their training, do not turn to others to define the boundaries of their achievements. Their dreams, nurtured by their immense hard-work, perseverance and integrity, ensure that reaching the summit becomes a habit. It is at this stage of their education, when the summit is nothing more than a base camp that they are accustomed to, that our students turn to their most ambitious dreams for inspiration to transcend new heights.

And it is with keeping this in mind that we at PUMBA endeavor to nurture and mentor the bright, young minds of our students. Just as ethics and social responsibility are some of the key issues that are calling for the attention of many an organization, similarly employee motivation and competence levels have become indispensable aspects that demand the attention of the employers, today. In our opinion, the need now is to nurture students who define their own benchmarks , students who align their parameters of success with their most ambitious dreams, thus leading the industry in general and their organization in particular to the path of growth and development.
