VCBM At a Glance

VIDURA COLLEGE OF BUSINESS MANAGEMENT (VCBM) was established in 2008 under the Sri Sai Rathan Education Society, for the study of issues and policies relating to Management Education, Research & Training for uplift of public and private enterprises (PEs). Dr B Rathan Reddy, PhD founder of Sri Sai Rathan Education Society, the then Professor and Training Director of Institute of Public Enterprise, had conceived the idea of a Management & Research institution that would undertake a systematic and sustained over all development of corporate leaders in the early 2000.

Institute is located in a picturesque greenwood area at National Highway44, G.Hyderabad.. Over the last 10 years, the Institute has widened the area of its work. Starting with research, the Institute soon found itself need to undertake consultancy for National and International and responding to the training needs of the executives of medium, large Enterprises in Public and Private Enterprises with various Management programmes.

The educational programmes of the Institute have their basic foundation in various research, training and consultancy activities undertaken by the Institute for Government ,Public and private organizations/industries over the last four decades. The programmes are the natural extension of the educational activities of the Institute from the short term management education to the long-term one and have lead to vertical integration of the research function. Three decades of insights into management education began in 2008 with the commencement of a 2-year full-time PGDM (Post Graduate Diploma in Management) approved by AICTE, Ministry of HRD, Government of India. In the year 2010, the Institute started a two-year full time Post Graduate Diploma in Business Management (PGDBM- International Business), recognized as equivalent to MBA to provide skilled human resources to meet the requirements of the Industry. Consolidating on the experience and to meet the needs of the industry, the Institute commenced two-year full time Post Graduate Diploma in Management - Retail Management (PGDM-RM) in 2011, courses are recognized by AICTE. These insights have led to the creation of a niche for itself in the conduct of the PGDBM course. SRGI’s long association with the Indian industry has been responsible for its pre-eminent position in the area of management education. From 2013- 14 we propose to start 2 year full time MBA (Master of Business Management) affiliated to JNTU, Hyderabad and B Com & BBA from Osmania University as residential courses.
