As per Hindu Report, All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has asked universities to shut down the dual degree Programmes.
In a circular dated May 19, technical education regulator All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has directed universities and independent management schools to shut down the dual degree programmes with effect from the current academic session.
The decision was taken by a committee constituted by AICTE to examine the continuation of Five-Year Dual Degree Programme in Management (integrated), introduced in the academic year 2012-13 by the regulator as BM, BAM or MAM.
“The Dual Degree Courses have been closed and no fresh admission should be permitted from AY 2016-17 to such courses from the current academic session,” the circular stated.
The institutions that were running dual degree courses are given an Extension of Approval for five years to safeguard the interests of the students who are already admitted in the integrated programmes.
However, there will be an exit option at the end of the three years for students who had joined the dual degree courses in 2015-16 or before that, the circular by AICTE said. Which would effectively mean that the students will be awarded a BBA degree instead of a BM degree.
However, those who have completed four years don’t have an exit option. They will be asked to complete one more year and be awarded BBA/MBA degree after the five-year course completion. The circular also requested all affiliated universities to adopt above changes and introduce additional supplementary subjects in BM/BAM /MAM curricula for the existing students.
