Shimla: The private sector Rayat Bahara University on Thursday announced cutting edge undergraduate and postgraduate programmes by signing MoUs with international companies like Oracle, Google, Apple and IBM for training students of B.Tech and MBA in new age programmes to meet the emerging challenges in talent acquisition for global sustainability, this was disclosed by Chairman of the Rayat Bahara group of educational institutions Gurvinder Bahara here. He said the University is providing latest technologies to increase the employment potential of its students in various competitive courses.
Prof. Raj Singh Vice Chancellor of the University disclosed that so far the University has assured hundred percent placement and employability to its students who have passed out in past five years from the Shimla campus. “We have been designing the courses while keeping in demand of human resource requirement by the industry in next one decade”, he claimed while revealing that the faculties in his university are getting salaries and benefits according to the national UGC norms. Chairman Gurvinder Bahara brushed aside the charges of some university employees of delay in disbursing salaries or shifting on to some other businesses.
He assured he is into running of educational institutions exclusively from past more than a decade and would never enter into ancillary activities as alleged by some people. There was a massive mushrooming of private educational institutions including around two dozen universities in past few years in the hill State. A number of them have even closed their shops and many have applied for the change in land use patterns.
The Rayat Bahara University which is doing relatively better amongst all the private universities here is charging around Rs 2 lakh per student per year in boarding for the majority professional courses. The fee structure of some of the private convent boarding schools here is much more than these professional universities, said the officials.
