    Now management students of Gujarat need not to go to US universities for an expensive MBA degree, as a reputed US university has come to Ahmedabad, say trustees of Areez Khambhata Benevolent Trust (AKBT). The trust has entered into an agreement with the University of North Texas (UNT) to launch a full-time MBA course at the Khambhata Centre of Excellence.

    Piruz Khambhata, trustee of AKBT, said “IIMA alumni Dr Audhesh Paswan will be the academic director. The  students joining this programme will have the advantage of getting a US degree in their own country and also an opportunity to complete their final semester at the UNT campus in the US. Degrees conferred by UNT have global recognition.”

    However, trustees did not reveal the fee structure for the course. To get admission, the students will have to follow the same procedure as their US counterparts, that is, appear for GMAT exam, write an essay and bring  recommendations.
