Bharathidasan University - Business Development Centre (BDU - BDC)
In consonance with the current view that Institutions of Higher Learning should open out to global competition and move towards self-sustenance through external cash flow; an independent unit called Bharathidasan University Business Development Centre (BDU-BDC) was established.

Our FacultyIn the last three decades, significant changes have been brought into Research and Development in Universities of India. Not only did the Universities look for greater generation of funding resources to sustain their research activities as funding from Government sources have become significantly dwindled, but also the Universities have been motivated towards the service of the society around them. Consequently, the researchers have been forced to “sell” their knowledge and research outputs through consultancy and transfer of technologies, which they have developed, to the needy industries. At the same time, this provided an avenue for taking scientific developments to the society. Since the individual scientists did not have the required time and expertise to facilitate the above activities, an organisational set-up was mandatorily required. In Bharathidasan University this was taken care by the Business Development Centre (BDU-BDC) during the year 2002.

Within this span of nine years the BDC has facilitated with many reputed Industries / Institutions to sign the MoU with the University on various aspects.

SMOT School of Business, has signed a MoU with Bharathidasan University - Business Development Centre to offer Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration (PGDBA)
