Global Country Study Report
(A Part of Global MBA Program: Applicable from Academic Year 2014-15 and Onwards)

All Directors, Faculty Members and Students,
GTU has implemented a new Global MBA program since August 2011. This program requires immersion studies and preparation of reports and case studies in different subjects. To manage the immersion studies and to systematize the professionalism in various areas, GTU has set up three Skills councils (Marketing, HR and Finance) with 25 Sectorial Panels (7, 8 and 10 Sectorial Panels respectively for the Marketing, HR and Finance Councils respectively) on June 25, 2011. (

GTU’s new MBA Program has three characteristics: Global, Innovative and Skill-oriented, with about 50% theory and 50% practical components in terms of number of hours, expected to be devoted by students. In case at a College, students and faculty members execute each of the courses, as expected, the market value of GTU’s MBA graduates can soar to very high levels. GCSR (Global Country Study Report)was introduced with a vision to enable the students to enrich their management knowledge with global perspectives in competitive scenarios. On 25th of April 2013, GTU appointed a Board of Advisors for the GCSR program. The Board consists of Mr. N. K. Goyal, President CMAI Association of India and a person with offices and correspondents in more than 52 countries, Mr. K. H. Patel, Former High Commissioner to Uganda and a former ambassador to many African countries and Mr. Sunil Modi, an expert on Business opportunities in Africa, having more than 30 years of experience in his field. Mr. Modi said that every MBA, who has learnt the practical course on GCSR well, would be offered high salaries by Indian as well as African companies.

The Handbook has been prepared to help students and faculty members maintain quality in their studies of GCSR.
We acknowledge the contributions made by the Dr. Rajesh Khajuria, Convener of the MBA Syllabus Committee, Dr. S. O. Junare for preparing the FAQ and Clarifications, Mr. Sunil Modi for his presentation on the African countries, Mr. HirenThaker, Mr. Keyur Darji, Dr. Sarika Srivastava and Dr. Kaushal Bhatt for compiling the material. Every faculty member and student is invited to add to the Handbook by sending details of good practices to Mr. Keyur Darji [].
