The Faculty of Applied Social Sciences and Humanities of Delhi University, South Campus, will conduct a joint entrance test for Bachelor of Business Studies (BBS), Bachelor of Financial and Investment Analysis (BFIA) and BA (Honours) Business Economics (BBE) for the first time.
“Students often apply to both BBS and BBE courses. The entrance tests for both are almost similar. So, it was felt that instead of sitting for two examinations, students could sit for one common test for all the three courses,” said Rashmi Agarwal, Dean, Faculty of Applied Social Sciences and Humanities.
Three colleges in South Campus offer BBS —SS College of Business Studies has 185 seats while Deen Dayal Upadhyay College and Keshav Mahavidyalaya offer 45 seats each.
Only SS College of Business Studies offers BFIA and has 62 seats. Ten colleges offer BBE with a total of 554 seats.
Another major change this year has been the shift to online registration of students.
The online application process for the courses, which invited 18,000 applicants last year, will begin from April 5 and end on May 4.
“We are going totally paperless. This is our way to reduce carbon footprints and make the process smoother,” said Poonam Verma, principal of SS College of Business Studies.
The eligibility criteria, too, has changed with both Mathematics and English now made compulsory for all the three courses in the best of four subjects.
