The School of Management Studies is one of the oldest academic units of the University and one of the five Management Schools to be established in the country in the early 1960s.

Being one among the first five management schools to be established in the country, it started functioning in the premises of the Fertilizers and Chemicals Travancore Ltd. (FACT) in October 1964 as a part of Kerala University with Professor Emeritus Dr. M. V. Pylee as the director.

When the University of Cochin was formed in the year1971 (which later became Cochin University of Science and Technology), the school became an integral part of the University. Since then, the school has striven tirelessly in pursuit of excellence in management education and is celebrating its 49th year.

MBA TRAVEL & TOURISM

Travel and Tourism, one of the world’s largest foreign exchange earners among industries, provides employment directly to millions of people worldwide and indirectly through many associated service industries. In fact, it is said that this industry will employ greater number of people than the software industry, the current hot employment provider in India. It is boom time for India! From the economic boom, information technology boom, to real estate boom, it is now a tourism boom! And this spells good news for employment opportunities in this sector.

Because of this emerging trend,the School of Management Studies has started their MBA for specialising in Travel and Tourism in 2007. Tourism is a service industry. MBA Travel and Tourism students of SMS,CUSAT know the dependence of tourism industry towards the environment, so they started an initiative to protect the mother earth and promote sustainable development through the management fest called GO-GREEN.

GO GREEN

As we all know in many ways, the modern day business world has caused environmental degradation. The young aspirants of MBA Travel and Tourism, School of Management Studies (SMS), CUSAT, realized that it was far time that environmental protection and business management went hand in hand.

Now as we are moving on to the fifth edition of Go Green, we invite you to join hands with us and show your responsibility towards our mother earth.

GO GREEN 2012

Thinking of ways to save Mother Earth? It’s high time we do, as the planet we live on is suffering. We are extracting all it has – oil, ores, water and more. We are cutting down trees, we are killing animals, and we are exploiting nature. Earth’s resources are depleting, posing a threat to human existence on the planet. It’s time we do something to save the planet. Let’s resort to simple ways to save the environment.
Here we are.Going green is a concept for people to learn how to make environmentally friendly activities. The green movement is dedicated to helping people become more aware of how daily choices affect the planet. Going green is also a concept that advocates making small changes to promote healthier and more environmentally friendly living. Does this spark an idea?A perfect theme for carrying a responsible solution of saving our Mother planet and making it a green planet is needed. MBA (Travel and Tourism) ’12, CUSAT, feels that the honour in joining hands with more and more friends around and lengthening the chain for saving and preserving our environment is an obligation.
