THE University of the South Pacific will be offering a new Doctor of Business Administration program in the new academic semester next year.
This was confirmed by USP’s Head of Graduate School of Business (GSB), Professor Raghuvar Pathak who hopes that the new program will be a great help in further empowering their graduates.
Professor Pathak made the announcement while celebrating the completion of the academic year for their students and Alumni with a public lecture at the USP: Japan-Pacific ICT Centre
He said the GSB had achieved many milestones in the past 22 years and a significant achievement in particular is the fact that their MBA is internationally accredited and has been re-accredited by the London based Association of MBAs or AMBA.
Professor Pathak stressed that their AMBA accreditation means that the students receive the highest standard of education and their qualifications are recognised by employers internationally.
Chair of AMBA, Professor Bodo Schlegelmilch said the digital paradigm shift fuels in an unprecedented speed of technological change with the introduction of robots, 3D printers, self-drive cars, holograms and drones, among many others.
The chief guest at the event was the Chief Executive Officer of Vodafone Fiji, Pradeep Lal who said learning and experiences gained not only enable professionals to carry out the roles assumed but to excel into managerial roles over the years effectively to meet the challenges of leading a dynamic organisation in a fast-paced industry.
