As an example, all of the business-related and other similar courses in management, which include specialisations such as 'Business Entrepreneurship', 'Business Studies' etc. will be known as 'Business Management'. Additionally, tourism-related courses such as 'Travel & Leisure', 'Travel & Tourism' will be clubbed under 'Tourism Management' and the 'Telecom Management' specialization has been reserved for courses such as 'Telecom and Marketing', 'Telecom and Information Technology' etc.
The announcement has been made following concerns that the nomenclature of MBA specialization in India was getting confusing and redundant, which can also be observed from the examples cited above.
As management education becomes even more popular and an increasing number of management courses are offered by MBA colleges in India, this move will help provide clarity and remove confusion from the mind of the student when going for the course. It can also help create a more uniform curriculum and make management education in India streamlined and future-ready.
