- Master in Management Studies (MMS) (Semester IV) -15 June
- MMS Digital Business Management - 15 May
Due to the pandemic situation in Maharashtra, the exams will be held in online mode.
In another notification, the university has postponed the LLM (Master of Laws) examinations till 1 June. The exams were scheduled to start from 17 May but now stand deferred. The decision has been taken after students requested that exams should be postponed as the admission to the course is still in process.
This year, around 800 students are supposed to appear for the exam across six LLM divisions of MU. The students are now complaining about the lack of breaks between the exams.
Sachin Pawar, President of Students Council in an interview with the Hindustan Times said that they are demanding gaps between the papers and have never asked for the postponement of the exams. He said that as per the new schedule, papers will be held every day and students will have no time to revise the entire syllabus.
The Master of Laws programme was started in 2013 after the University Grants Commission (UGC) allowed a one-year master’s programme in law (LLM). This is one of the many initiatives taken by the UGC to revamp legal education and bring it on par with international standards.
