I take this opportunity of congratulating all of you on your decision to join NMIMS Global Access-School for Continuing Education (NGA-SCE) of NMIMS (Deemed to be University). I am happy that you have joined the growing community of learners at NMIMS.
Shri Vile Parle Kelavani Mandal, a Public Trust and a Society in Mumbai since 1934 whose goal is to advance the cause of quality education in India, set up Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) in 1981 at the initiation of University of Bombay (now University of Mumbai).
By 1994-95, NMIMS had emerged as one of the top 10 B-Schools of India. Since then it has maintained its leadership position in Management Education in India. NMIMS was also accredited by NAAC in 1999 at a 5 Star level and subsequently at level `A’. Based on the work University had done in Management Education, the Government of India conferred on it Deemed to be University status under section 3 of the UGC Act in 2003. Since then NMIMS, as a University, has grown many folds, such that today it offers programs in diverse disciplines like Technology, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Biological and Chemical Sciences, Architecture, Law, Economics, Business and Commerce and these are over and above its continued dominance in the field of Management Education where its Business School is today considered one of the crème de la crème.
One of the primary objectives of NMIMS is to influence management practice through education, research and consulting intervention. With a view to educate corporate professionals, the Institution offered courses both through campus and Distance Learning mode. It was one of the few institutions that started offering Management programs at Certificate, Diploma and Post Graduate level in India, South East Asia and the Middle East through distance learning model. However, over a period of time the Distance Learning division underwent changes curriculum, pedagogy and assessment. After becoming a University, NMIMS created a dedicated School for Distance Learning.
Responding to the new era of the 21st century, where technology has come to play an important role in the lives of an individual, we, at the University, felt that it was essential to integrate it in our learning system. This would assist us in creating an enabling learning environment. For this purpose, NMIMS integrated Blackboard in its learning environment. We also decided to extend this to the distance education or continuing education where the need for it was felt the most. Today the School for Continuing Education offer courses using various learning technologies which includes both computer and mobile. We also feel that education is not a onetime activity. Individuals have learning needs at different stages of their life and career. With this understanding the school of Distance Learning was renamed as School for Continuing Education. Technology has made Geography redundant and hence we felt we need to accordingly reflect this in our schools. Global Access, which prefaces School for Continuing Education, reflects such understanding. We believe learners and teachers can come from anywhere in the world. The dream for NGA-SCE is to leverage the best resources available in the world to enhance learning experience of all those who join NMIMS NGA-SCE. Technology also helps participants learn at their own convenience. Modular courses of NGA-SCE is yet another pedagogy tool for customized learning.
The University has created a support structure to assist you in all academic matters. To guide you through NMIMS Rules and Regulations, a Student Resource Book has been prepared which is available on the website of NGA-SCE and the University as also in print to you. I urge you to read it carefully and sign a student undertaking at the last page and submit the same to the Course Coordinator at the time of collecting the learning kit from your Regional Office.
