Welcome to the Department of Business Management, Tripura University (A Central University)under the Department of Professional Studies (DPS). Business management strikes a balance between theoretical and practical scenario in business. Over the years the business management department has been able to create an enabling environment for learning and development where future managers are fostered organically. Since a management programme is not only about classroom training rather it is a preparation for a career in corporate sector while staying anchored to academics. The pedagogical practice and dynamic course curriculum at the department has evolved over time by the confluence of different modern approaches backed by state –of – the – art technology infrastructure. At the Department of Business management, students not only learn through classroom teaching but also through case based learning, industry-academia interactions through lectures by senior level management executives, summer internship projects, inbound and outbound industrial tours in various corporate organizations and industries emerging in hard core business and corporate professionals. We are committed to train each student on the factors of corporate readiness through the fine blending of theory and practice by our experienced faculty members and industry mentors thus enriching life each day. Our faculties are involved in ‘cutting edge research’. They have been organizing seminars, management and faculty development programmes as well as executing government funded and consultancy projects. The holistic involvement of faculties across so many relevant areas is beneficial for imbibing management knowledge and professional growth of our students.
A three-year Bachelor Course in Business Administration leading to the award of the Degree of Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) was introduced by Tripura University from the Academic Session, 2003-2004.

The PhD program of the department commenced from 2013 with special focus on the diverse areas of management like learning continuity, consumer culture theory, mobile banking, consumer socialization, and blended learning.
Since the last decade and half, the faculty members and students of the department are actively involved in conducting various events, namely, ‘Prayatna-Management conclave’, Prarambh, Purvottaran and Rubaroo wherein students test their business acumen by managing teams, handling conflicts, and situational ambiguities which will help them to saddle-up for future eventualities. Rubaroo provides a platform for alumni to reconnect with their Alma Mater and take the advantage of life long placement hub. Various cultural and management events rekindles the bond between alumni, Alma mater and the institute and refreshes their nostalgic memories. We take pride in stating that our management students have put in their zealous and diligent efforts in academics as well as in organizing events resulting in grand success.
