College of Applied Business

Gangahity, Dhobikhola, Kathmandu


College of Applied Business, founded in 1998, by a group of experienced educationists and professionals is a non-profit institution committed to excellence. The college believes that competent and excellent manpower is the prerequisite for the overall development of the nation.

Besides, well-versed students with high moral values and in-depth knowledge of subjects will be better placed in society. They will also find it easier to pursue further education at learning centers of repute. CAB has been applying appropriate modules and techniques in the teaching curricula so as to make students competent in their fields. 

CAB offers four-year BBS, BIM, BBA, B.Sc. CSIT and BCA courses of Tribhuvan University.

The methods such as seminars, research, and industrial observation tours that are regular features of the College have been highly successful in enhancing the knowledge and personality of the students. Moreover, the methods applied by CAB have been amply justified by the consistently high success rate achieved by its students in the university final examinations.

All CAB classes were kept small so as to facilitate better interaction between students and teachers. The maximum enrollment in a class is thirty students. And, the College admits only two sections of thirty each in undergraduate level and above levels. 

Some fifty full-time and part-time teachers constitute the College Faculty. The teacher-student ratio is thus highly conducive to individually supervised study. Besides, to expose students to the real business world, the College has been supplementing its theoretical classes by introducing professional managers, scholars, and other people from different walks of life for guest lectures.

CAB  added a new avenue to its students and signed the Transfer Credit Agreement with THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK (SUNY) at PLATTSBURGH. According to this agreement, the CAB students, if they desire, will be able to transfer up to 60 Cr/Hrs to THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK (SUNY) at PLATTSBURGH. This will facilitate CAB students to complete US education in record two years of time.

What makes the College of Applied Business stand out is a clear vision to offer a good value education that is more personal, relevant, and business-focused. They're also passionately committed to improving what they do every day and are open to fresh ideas and new ways of doing things.

The Board of Trustees of CAB governs the overall management of the college by formulating policies, rules, and regulations regarding admissions, academic needs, and employment. The Principal as the executive head is responsible for the daily operation of the institution.


The mission of the College of Applied Business is to empower the youth with truth, knowledge, and realities of life and help discover ways to lead a prosperous life in a dignified manner.
