Hanamkonda: GITAM Deemed to be University has implemented the National Education Policy (NEP-2020) starting from the academic year 2023-24. This means that students can now pursue a four-year undergraduate degree after completing their 10 2 education. The program encompasses Bachelor of Arts (BA), Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA), and Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) programmes, said Dr C Udaya Kumar, Director of Admissions at GITAM, Hyderabad.

From the second semester onwards, students will have the freedom to switch programs if they desire. Additionally, they can select one Major (60 Credits) and one Minor (24 Credits) from the same school or other schools, thereby fostering a multidisciplinary approach to education,” he said.

The university also offers fee concessions during admission to students who achieve top ranks in the GITAM Admission Test (GAT).

Engineering graduates receive an average pay package of Rs 5.20 lakh per annum (LPA), while MBA graduates secure an average pay package of Rs 8.20 lakh per annum.
