Puducherry: Pondicherry University is to follow the Common Admission Test (CAT) conducted by Indian Institute of Management (IIM) to admit students to MBA courses offered at the university from next academic year, said vice chancellor Gurmeet Singh in a press meet here on Tuesday.

Students aspiring to attend the course should attend the entrance scheduled on November 25 this year.

 

“CAT conducted by IIM is a well-recognised examination in 147 centres across India. Pondicherry University offers one of the finest courses in MBA and by adopting CAT the quality of the course will further improve. More than this, it will also help the students to join in reputed companies immediately after completing the course as the companies will be interested in conducting campus interviews from an institution which follows CAT,” said the vice chancellor.

According to Singh, more than 80 per cent of students from department of management studies and MBA international business got placed in various institutions across the country and abroad last year through campus interview.

 

The registration for CAT examination will close at 5 pm on September 26 this year and the results will be tentatively announced in January 2019. The University will shortlist candidates based on their CAT scores and invite them to appear for selection process scheduled in the third week of March 2019.

Replying to the question on adopting 25 per cent reservation for students from Puducherry on all courses offered by the university, the Vice Chancellor said that various departments are already providing reservation for students from Puducherry considering it as a special case and there is no need for further change in the system.

 

“It is not mandatory that a Central university should offer reservation for students from a particular region , but we are offering reservation in various departments. There is no special circumstances to change the system now,” he said.

Denying allegations of saffronisation of the University campus the Vice Chancellor said “When people have nothing to say, they will attack with the allegations of saffronisation. In our case it is completely baseless. The university stands for the values of secularism and democracy and we promote that.”

 

 Singh, who was meeting the mediapersons for the first time after assuming office on November last year,  said that the university administration is working together for the welfare of students and the staff members for the past one year which brought tremendous changes in the institution.

“The administration has intervened in various issues raised by the staffs of the university. Students of Pondicherry University has adopted 125 villages across the Union Territory and is working for the overall development of the areas with special focus on the fields of education, health and solid waste management. Things are changing slowly,” he said.
