The University Grants Commission (UGC) on Monday told the University of Delhi to continue the Bachelor of Management  Studies (BMS) programme only for the students admitted last year and to reduce the duration of the course from four to three years.

“Students already admitted to the 4-year BMS programme during 2013-14 only by the various colleges under the University of Delhi may continue in this programme, however the duration of the programme shall be for 3 years,” the UGC stated in a letter.

“The colleges under the University of Delhi, which admitted students in academic year 2013-14 to the BMS programme may, wherever required, obtain appropriate approval of the regulatory bodies such as the UGC and the AICTE and ensure the students admitted in this programme are not put to any disadvantage,” the letter said.

This left many students disappointed.

“The programme should not have been scrapped.  We will have problems in placements. This has made our future uncertain,” a student said.

After the withdrawal of the four-year undergraduate programme, students enrolled in the various programmes in the academic year 2013-14 had expressed apprehension regarding the nomenclature and duration of the programmes to which they were admitted.
