About Goa University

Goa University (GU) is perhaps the best small public university in India. Nestled between the Arabian Sea and the Western Ghats on India’s west coast, the sheer physical beauty of the state comes from its red soil, the myriad green hues of its vegetation and the deep blues of its ocean and sky, its rivers and lakes and ponds. In 33 years of its existence, GU has been a productive University offering high-quality educational programmes and an amenable research environment with good infrastructure and being placed in the 201-250 band in the QS 2018 BRICS University ranking.

About Goa Business School

Goa University established Goa Business School (GBS) in April 2019 by amalgamating four erstwhile departments of Commerce, Computer Science & Technology, Economics, and Management Studies. The main objective behind bringing together these four departments is to allow the faculty and research students to discover new synergies that otherwise remained hidden within department silos. GBS is a new initiative of the University to rebrand and showcase its strengths in research, teaching, and consultancy with an interdisciplinary approach. At present, GBS has the largest student strength and the programs offered under the school have good placement record and demand in the service industry.
