Goa Business School

Erstwhile Departments of (i) Commerce, (ii) Computer Science & Technology, (iii) Economics, and (iv) Management Studies


The Goa Business School is established by the amalgamation of departments that can deliver better together. The departments that are amalgamated in the Goa Business School are Commerce (established in 1988), Computer Science & Technology (1987), Economics (1968 Centre for Post-Graduate Instruction & Research at Goa - CPIR - affiliated to then University of Bombay) and Management Studies (1988). Each of these departments has a glorious past. The Department of Economics has a legacy of a part of Centre for Post-Graduate Instruction and Research (CPIR) that gave birth to the University. The Department of Computer Science and Technology was established with initial financial assistance from DOE/UGC under the Manpower Development Scheme. The amalgamation would allow the faculty and research students to discover new synergies that remained hidden within department silos, rebrand and showcase our strengths in research and teaching in these areas together. The students passing out from these departments have been absorbed in the industry within India and abroad in the past.
While the amalgamation is with the defined objectives, we can not forget the contributions that are made individually by the departments. Therefore, the graphs of the publications and the number of PhDs exhibited below also indicate the strength of these disciplines together. The academic programmes of each of these would evolve over a period of time with the synergy in the near future that provides challenging opportunities to the students passing out of the Goa Business School. Scroll on this page to view a variety of programmes that are being offered including the number of seats. Visit the faculty pages to know more about them and their strengths individually. Have a look at the projects that were carried out in the past and at hand currently and contact us for the opportunities, collaborations, and exchanges and explore the best amongst us.
The school has established good contacts with the industry and business enterprises in and outside Goa for corporate internship and placement services. The programmes provide comprehensive knowledge and practice covering various aspects needed in the industry. Goa University has thus become one of the select universities.
