Mumbai: Borivali Management College, which planned to take more than 80 students to Dubai on an industrial visit this month, has postponed the plan until further notice. The Global Exposure Program was an integral part of the curriculum for the two-year Postgraduate Diploma Management (PGDM) course at the Aditya Institute for Management Studies and Research and, according to the institute, included three credit points.
TOI had previously reported that some of the students are unwilling to travel in the middle of the pandemic and were interested in waiving the fees. However, the institute mentioned in a statement that over 75% of the batch had shown willingness to join the trip and had already given their parents’ approval.
Students who wanted to de-register were given the opportunity to take the Harvard Business School online certificate course to complete their credits. However, some students did not want to avail of the expensive online program as well and instead wanted the institute to waive the fees. The decision to postpone the trip was made after some students raised their concerns to the Senate member of the University of Mumbai. Students should travel in two groups on March 18 and 21.
