Message from the Director

Laxman K.C.

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you all to Presidential Business School. I am proud to be part of this college and hope that you also share in the same sentiment once you are part of the PBS family. PBS has a very stimulating, vibrant environment, which is but a result of a heterogeneous make-up of students from a wide variety of backgrounds with a singular pursuit of rewarding international BBA/ MBA degrees. Always supportive and friendly, we do embrace the fact that each student is a unique individual and that such distinctiveness has to be preserved. Yet, paradoxically or not, our attempt has always been to override any inward-looking individuality for a more liberal, inclusive society. No wonder we are, therefore, also holistic in our approach to teaching and learning, the student welfare always being our first priority.

In fact, Presidential Business School—a fully integrated global management school and model center for business/ management studies in Nepal—is founded with a goal to offer unparalleled educational service, and the right orientation to the aspirant BBA/ MBA entrants. The goal seems evidently reachable with our team of expert faculty members and educationists who have behind them a long experience of having catered to the needs of the students vying for the degrees that are on a par with the international ones. And, with Westcliff University’s BBA and MBA degrees here in Nepal, the job seems already half-done!

I must also note in passing that at the crucial stage of choosing careers, especially in this era of cut-throat competition at a global level, students often find themselves confused. Yet, bright careers await those who dare to dream, act upon their dreams and focus on their goals with unflagging determination and dedication. These students will also, upon completion of their course, witness their chances of employment increase considerably—and globally too! We have a flexible approach designed to suit both your personal and professional commitments. Besides, our pioneering work-based learning programs make it possible for your academic work to be combined with your chosen career. This flexibility is vital for studying at the Graduate Level in particular. We are confident that the programs outlined in this prospectus provide a sound, quality-assured learning experience in the field of management studies.

Once again, I keenly look forward to welcoming you here at PBS.

Laxman K.C.
