It is delightful to learn that School of Business Management, Shoolini University places the highest importance on recruiting the brightest and the most talented and dedicated faculty. Our faculty inspires students' curiosity by introducing them to some of the world's greatest mysteries and most profound questions. We know that your enthusiasm and discoveries will enrich our life as well. We believe it is critical to recruit both junior and senior faculty to the college. Junior faculty brings the latest training in their field and the excitement of a new career, while senior professors bring greater experience and an established record of success. Having a balanced combination of the two, as well as of faculty in the middle stages of their careers, ensures departmental success and longevity. As alumni and friends of the college, our readers are the last people who need to be told that business has changed dramatically over the past 25 years. Barriers to trade have fallen, Asia has risen, and the competition for jobs and business opportunities that was once defined by local, regional, and national economic zones has long gone fully global. As business goes so, inevitably, must go business education. Change is everywhere, and the college is ready to embrace it. We have to be ready. We have to be agile. We have to be inventive. The challenge is to maintain progress towards our strategic goals, even if the rate of progress has changed from what was planned. Every shift provides opportunity. What does that entail? There is no one-size-fits-all path, but there are some universal principles. We want the students of School of Business Management, to find their passion. And we are sure that all these thoughts will get voice with your esteem guidance.


Make your top managers rich and they will make you rich Dream High Achieve More...

Student Diary:NALDEHRA Located at distance of 22 km from Shimla, Naldehra (2044 m) is a heaven for tourists. It boasts of the oldest 9 hole golf course in the country. The well groomed Golf Course is a lovely verdant, perhaps one of the finest and sporty in India. Crowned with a springing turf the Golf Course was suggested by Lord Curzon. He was so enchanted by the place that he gave his daughter Alexendra, "Naldehra" as her second name. It is the venue of many competitions. The Nag temple is also situated here and Naldehra derives its name from it.

KASAULI This small hill station seems to live in time warp that belongs to the 19th century. The narrow roads of Kasauli (1951m) slither up and down the hillside and offer some magnificent vistas. Directly below is the spread of vast plains of Punjab and Haryana which as darkness falls, unroll a gorgeous carpet of twinkling lights. At 3647 m, the peak of Choor Chandni also called the Choordhar powerfully dominates the lower hills and across the undulating ranges, Shimla is visible. The upper and lower malls run through Kasauli's length and one can enjoy longs walks. A mixed forest of pine, oak and huge horse-chestnut encircles the town. Its colonial ambience is reinforced by stretch of cobbled road, quaint shops, gabled houses with charming facades and scores of neat little gardens and orchards.
