President's Message

I welcome you to GITAM Centre for Distance and Online Education that offers learner-centered, open, flexible, affordable and quality education through a wide range of programmes.


Distance education is now considered to be an integral part of achieving access and inclusive growth of higher education. This calls for quality education to reach the hitherto unreached. We therefore need a system of education which is independent of time, place and pace to suit the needs of aspirants.


I am immensely pleased to note that GITAM Centre for Distance and Online Education is fulfilling this need by offering several useful programmes in the disciplines of management, science and humanities. The learners are free to choose a progrmme suitable to their requirement and accentualize their potential for a fruitful and rewarding career.


An important additional feature of this Centre is online learning in select programmes being introduced this year to facilitate interactive learning among learners, thus enhancing access and flexibility.


I earnestly hope that a large number of learners will be benefited from the distance learning programmes offered by GITAM Centre for Distance and Online Education.
