The Department of Commerce and Business Administration, L N. Mithila University, Darbhanga is a premier seat of learning in Bihar, imparting Post-graduate education in Commerce since 1962. MBA programme was started in the Department way-back in 1991. Over the years, the MBA Programme of the Department has made a mark for itself in the galaxy of B-Schools owing largely to the quality of its class room teaching, training and research. The programme has since been approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), Ministry of HRD, Government of India and also by the Government of Bihar. It has wide support of corporate world in terms of training and final placement of the students apart from the Department-industry interface. The Alumni Association also plays an important role in arranging corporate placement for the students.
The MBA Programme is conducted in a sprawling campus. It has an excellent ambience and a panoramic landscape, suited ideally to a modern B-School endeavouring to produce goal-oriented and value committed managers.
We have adopted a state of the Art Computer Lab. The Lab has since attracted the attention of a world known IT Giant, the Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and they have started conducting their all online tests from our Computer Lab. We are hopefully looking forward to enter into a tie-up with TCS for a Computer based professional programme.
The Department is blessed with a host of reputed teachers who have excelled themselves in Commerce and Management education through their globally acclaimed articles and books. Professor S. M. Jha, currently the Vice-Chancellor of the University hails from our Department.
The Department has been regularly organizing national conferences, seminars, workshops, extra - mural lectures, corporate-academia meet and so on. The All India Commerce Conference has been organised twice under the aegis of the Department. We hosted a National Workshop on Management of Universities in 2004. It was a highly onerous meet attended mainly by the Vice- Chancellors, Registrars and other senior functionaries of the Universities from and outside Bihar. Very recently, a UGC sponsored National Seminar on Change Management in Higher Education has been organised under the aegis of the Department.
The support that we have been getting from the corporate world in terms of Summer Training and Campus Placement has been a great source of strength to us.
