Southwestern Business College

Dhapasi (Basundhara), Kathmandu

Situated in Dhapasi (Basundhara), Kathmandu, Southwestern Business College is affiliated with Purbanchal University. Initially offering only a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program, the college has expanded its academic offerings to include Bachelor of Hotel Management (BHM) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) programs.


Southwestern Group acquired Everest Business School in 2014 and subsequently renamed it Southwestern Business College. This involved transferring the name, location, and promoters at the Company Registrar Office and Purbanchal University, which served as the college's affiliating institution.

The College places great importance on delivering education with distinction and has adopted four key concepts to maintain quality and uniqueness: non-compromise, smart shaping, two-way communication, and individuality-finding. To ensure the precise delivery of the syllabus, the College publishes guidelines on subject-based lesson plans, leaving no room for compromise.

Students are well groomed through regular activities, participation in events, competitions, and opportunities for tours and visits. Communication flows in all directions by receiving relevant information from recognized bodies, direct and indirect feedback from stakeholders, and providing information through traditional methods like publications and notices, as well as modern technology. The College's Signature Program, Individual Focus, is specifically designed to help students discover their individuality and guide them on their unique path.


Successfully pass on the ability to grasp the real meaning of quality education to make it visible through applied research and practice.


Transcend the loyalty towards the ‘aspirants to become the real managers’, and deliver them their pride of making the right choice of us!
