THE success of its main campus in Visakhapatnam prompted GITAM University to go to Hyderabad two years ago and establish its off-campus centre at Rudraram village in Patancheru mandal.

The facility, with its well-established laboratories, has received a good response from students. Apart from engineering programmes, the university provides management education through its Hyderabad Business School (HBS). Research, executive development programmes and consultancy services are offered here. GITAM claims that the main strength of HBS lies in its world-class infrastructure and dedicated faculty with industrial, research and teaching experience at the national and international levels. Of its 75-strong faculty, 40 have PhDs .

The emphasis of HBS has been to prepare business leaders and develop sound academia-industry collaboration.

HBS offers a two-year, full-time Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme, which aims to produce true professionals ready to take up leadership positions. Academic and co-curricular activities, taught and presented by experts from institutions and industry, have been included in the syllabus.

Centre for Distance Learning

GITAM University established the Centre for Distance Learning in the academic year 2009-10. It offers 13 undergraduate, postgraduate and diploma programmes in literature, management, science and social sciences. It has virtual classrooms and unique learning resources. Online learning is provided for select programmes. It has 40 study centres in different parts of the State; it is accessible to tribal and remote rural areas also.

A letter from the Editor

Dear reader,

The COVID-19-induced lockdown and the absolute necessity for human beings to maintain a physical distance from one another in order to contain the pandemic has changed our lives in unimaginable ways. The print medium all over the world is no exception.

As the distribution of printed copies is unlikely to resume any time soon, Frontline will come to you only through the digital platform until the return of normality. The resources needed to keep up the good work that Frontline has been doing for the past 35 years and more are immense. It is a long journey indeed. Readers who have been part of this journey are our source of strength.

Subscribing to the online edition, I am confident, will make it mutually beneficial.
