Skills and knowledge are the driving forces of growth and development in any field of specialization. The countries with better and higher levels of skilled professionals adjust more effectively to the challenges and opportunities of globalization.

To provide skill development vocational training to school leavers, existing employees, experts, health workers etc. to improve their employability by optimally utilizing the infrastructure available in Bhagwan Mahavir University.
Diploma / Advance Diploma / Bachelor in Vocational:
Vocational or skill-based education is becoming more and more significant with passing time. BVoc (Bachelor of Vocation) is an emerging course in India that aims at providing adequate skills required for a particular trade to candidates. The course is different from traditional academic programmes as it deals more with application-based studies rather than focusing on only theoretical knowledge.
BVoc is a three-year duration undergraduate course that can be pursued in a wide range of fields starting from healthcare, food technology and hospitality to creative fields like graphic designing and beauty & wellness. One of the biggest advantages of pursuing BVoc against common degree courses is that a candidate has multiple exit points during the programme and continued industry exposure. This means that if a candidate is unable to complete his/ her BVoc course, s/he has is still awarded a diploma after successful completion of first year or advanced diploma after successful completion of second year. Apart from this, the work experience candidates gain during the course increases their chances of getting a job. Bhagwan Mahavir University offer BVoc courses in tie-up with different industries.
