Unitedworld business school sets up campus in Hyderabad

Hyderabad, June 9

The Ahmedabad-based Unitedworld School of Business has set up its campus here.

The school would offer admissions into post-graduate programmes in general management, financial services and business strategy.

“The students will also have an option of having an MBA degree (instead of a certificate in PG programme) from Punjab Technical University with which, we have a tie-up,” Mr T. Bandyopadhyay, Chief Executive Officer and Director of the school, told newspersons here on Wednesday.

The school is not recognised by the All-India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).

All the students would be taken to a one-month camp to Singapore campus of the school. Including the cost of Singapore trip, the fee for two-year programme is Rs 5.4 lakh.

“We have set up the campus with S$10 million which will also function as an independent campus to offer one-year diploma programmes in management,” he said.

The permission to run courses from Singapore campus was obtained last week, he added.

The Unitedworld business school started its operations last year and has 360 students who completed their first year.

Currently, it has six campuses in Kolkata, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Delhi, Hyderabad and Singapore.

“Out target is to have 100/120 students in each of our campuses,” Mr Bandyopadhyay said.

(Nasdaq: CY) and The Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) Pilani, Hyderabad Campus, have opened a new lab for collaborative research and development based on the PSoC® programmable system-on-chip. The lab was recently inaugurated by Professor V.S. Rao, Director, BITS-Pilani, Hyderabad Campus, and Patrick Kane, Director of Cypress's University Alliance. Cypress set up the PSoC lab at BITS, Hyderabad and donated twenty PSoC kits as well as PSoC DesignerTM software. The lab exposes students to the PSoC platform, a flexible family of devices with programmable analog and digital blocks integrated with a microcontroller. A large number of experiments in the analog and digital communication labs are designed around the PSoC platform, which is tightly integrated into the curriculum and student learning. With many students engaged in wireless, medical and remote sensing projects, PSoC plays a pivotal role in providing them with hands-on experience creating solutions for embedded systems.

IIM-A may set up branch in Hyderabad
Andhra Business Bureau
Jun 28, 2010




HYDERABAD: The State may not get the much-touted Indian Institute of Management (IIM) in Visakhapatnam, as repreatedly announced by Union Minister of State for Human Resources Development. D. Purandeshwari.
Instead, it may have to be content with a branch, or call it an extension counter, of IIM-Ahmedabad which is almost certain to come up in Hyderabad, which already was given an Indian Institute of Technology (IIT).
It is now becoming amply clear that the State never pitched in for a stand alone IIM. Instead, a proposal was made during the regime of late Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy to the IIM-A and also IIM-Bangalore and invited teams from the premier institutes to identify a suitable location.
IIM-A picked up the offer and sent the team for which the natural choice was Hyderabad, as the Government had offered 150 acres of land free of cost and also an interest-free loan for creating the infrastructure.
The proposal, which was put on a back-burner after the death of Dr. Reddy, has now been revived with Chief Minister K. Rosaiah penning a letter to Vijaypath Singhania, Chairman of the IMM-A Board of Governors to consider establishing a unit (a branch) in the State.
The popular B-school at a meeting on June 24 "in principle" consented to the move and constituted a taskforce to take proposal forward.
Besides the PG Diploma in Management (which is popular as MBA), the Hyderabad branch of IIM-A, if set up, would offer a few other courses, including certificate courses for which IIM-A students can opt.
As successive Union Budgets remained silent and the Centre was not too keen on establishing an IIM in the State, which had 'gifted' the Congress-led UPA 33 MPs, Dr. Reddy 'bargained' at least for an extension counter of IIM-A, it is learnt.
What the Congress MP from Visakhapatnam will now tell her constituents will be interesting to watch.

IIM-A to set up satellite campus near Hyderabad

Source: http://www.business-standard.com/ind...?autono=399760

The Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A) has finally agreed to set up a satellite campus near Hyderabad. The decision was taken at a board meeting of the premier B-school on June 24, according to government officials.

IIM-A will set up a strategy committee next month to look into the various aspects of setting up the campus. The faculty at this campus will be part of IIM-A. “This is IIM-A in Hyderabad, and not IIM-Hyderabad,’’ a state government official clarified.

“We would like to bring up a facility at Hyderabad but would also need a corpus of Rs 100-120 crore for the same. Either the government or the local industry would have to contribute towards this. We, however, will not accept it (financial aid) if it comes with strings attached like asking for quota for students, etc,” IIM-A Director Samir Barua said when asked to comment on the issue.

“We could begin with our one-year management programme for executives as that would be the most feasible option and later expand. While faculty is a perennial issue, we would have to stretch the same. I however, cannot put a deadline to the proposal,” he added.

The process was initiated by the late Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy who had written to the IIM-A management, urging it to set up a campus in his state. He had promised to provide 150 acres near Hyderabad for the proposed campus, and also, if necessary, arrange an interest-free loan to the tune of Rs 100 crore. However, the proposal went on the back burner following his death in a helicopter crash in September 2009.

The incumbent chief minister, K Rosaiah, resurrected the issue when he wrote a letter to the IIM- A management again on May 31, reiterating the commitment of the state government. “We will facilitate the same by allocating the necessary land and providing required support for realisation of IIM-A’s seamless campus initiative,” Rosaiah said in a letter to Vijaypat Singhania, chairman, board of governors of IIM-A.

“Having a campus (IIM-A) in the state will give a decisive advantage to your students and faculty in terms of exposure to new sectors as Hyderabad hosts vibrant information technology hub, biotech valley, pharma industry and financial services besides being home to many infrastructure companies,” the chief minister stated in his letter.

The state government, meanwhile, is encouraging management, science and technology institutes to set up their campuses in the state to create skilled manpower base to sustain higher economic growth. It has invited Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, CMC Vellore, Birla Institute of Technology and Sciences (Pilani) and others.

I really hope that the government gets IIM-Ahmedabad to Hyderabad. One of the things lacking in Hyderabad is good quality institutions. Hyderabad/AP has dime a dozen engineering colleges. What it needs are the best institutions in every area: management, law, science, arts, media/journalism, liberal arts to set up campuses in the state. YSR sir did a very good job of attract 16 quality institutes to Hyderabad and 6 to the rest of the state. Hope that the current government builds on this.

TISS gets nod for opening campuses in Assam, Andhra
Charu Sudan Kasturi,Hindustan Times
New Delhi, July 07, 2010

The Tata Institute of Social Sciences has earned the human resource development ministry’s “in principle” nod to open campuses in Guwahati and Hyderabad, in the 74-year-old pioneer institute’s biggest ever expansion move till date. Human Resources Development Minister Kapil Sibal approved the proposal
for the expansion by TISS after a meeting with institute officials on Monday, top government sources told Hindustan Times.

The proposal — aimed at better catering to students from the north-east and south of the country — will need to be approved by Cabinet before it can be implemented.

TISS is India’s oldest school of modern social work, and was started in Mumbai in 1936, expanding in recent years to a campus in Tuljapur — also in Maharashtra.

The Guwahati campus, under the proposal, will reserve 70 per cent seats for students from the north-east and will be funded by the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DONER), the sources said.

“We expect this to provide a massive boost in access to top class social science education in the north-east,” a source said.

The Assam government has already allocated 15 acres of land for the project, within the campus of the Assam Engineering College, Guwahati.

The Hyderabad campus is, however, likely to prove trickier for TISS to start.

The HRD ministry in understood to be unsure about central funding for this campus.

“Hyderabad is already home to several major social science institutions – unlike the north-east, which needs greater attention from the government's perspective,” a source said.

TISS may seek funding from the Andhra Pradesh government for the Hyderabad campus. The state government has sanctioned 65 acres of land for this campus.

After Kadapa, demand for more HPS campuses outside Hyderabad


HYDERABAD: With the Hyderabad Public School (HPS) setting up its first campus outside Hyderabad, in Kadapa, the home district of former chief minister the late Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, several Congress legislators have started putting pressure on the HPS society for setting up campuses in their districts.

HPS management has reportedly received suggestions from several legislators to set up the school's campus in other districts including Vizag, Warangal and Guntur. While some were made almost a year ago (Vizag), several fresh requests have come up recently, HPS officials said.

According to the legislators' calculations, the school, whose fee structure ranges from Rs 45,000 (class I) to Rs 69,000 (class XII) per annum, can attract students even in other rich towns in the state.

Incidentally, some of the areas seeking an HPS campus include Nizamabad and Warangal West where byelections will be held this month. While the two districts are from Telangana region, officials from secondary education department said that majority of the requests have come from government representatives of Andhra and Rayalaseema regions.

"Proposals have come from the government's side but the board is shying away from most," an official said.

"We would like to set up campuses similar to the main campus in Begumpet. But accepting so many requests could result in projects not delivering quality infrastructure and facilities," said an official from HPS.

HPS officials said that none of the proposals was being considered right now. "The board of directors will pass a decision for the school to branch out only if there is a clear cut plan about land and infrastructure. Many of the suggestions are in consideration but none is finalised. Besides we have no plans of creating new branches now," said M A Faiz Khan, secretary, managing committee, HPS Society.
