Message from Dean
Nepal, despite its rich resource endowment, is an impoverished country. In order to overcome the situation, we need to put on concerted efforts to transform the nation state into a vibrant, growing and a prosperous nation. For this we have to build and develop our human capital capable of taking initiatives, shouldering responsibilities and putting on serious efforts in an innovative and creative manner. However, despite efforts of almost half a century though with some visible results, the access to higher education is still limited, estimated at less than 20 percent participation of the age group. In order to address this challenge and improve access to even those who cannot afford to go to classrooms, Nepal Open University has been established. Our mission is to impart quality education to build knowledge, skills and abilities befitting the requirements of the nation and the market and going even beyond to meet the needs of the global market both for Nepalese and other aspirants.
To achieve our mission, we are launching various programmes viz. three year Bachelor of Business Science (BBS), Master of Business Management (MBA), MS in Development Management and Governance(MSDMG) and three year Bachelor of Law (LLB) Programme. We are planning to launch course and research based PhD and four year Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA), Master of Law (LLM) and Master of Philosophy (MPhil) from February session. We believe that we could fulfil the aspirations of those who are willing to pursue higher education through open and distance mode. We welcome you all to join us in this university to get quality education through open and distance mode. We impart requisite knowledge, support career development and equip with practical and allied skills to enable to contribute in the nation building process.
