Gedu College of Business Studies
Gedu College of Business Studies, located at Gedu, Chukha, is the only premier college under the Royal University of Bhutan that offers full-time contemporary business and management education in the country.
The establishment of a business college was first conceived by His Majesty the Fourth King. Therefore, the then National Assembly members resolved to establish one at Gedu in its 85th session. The Gedu College of Business Studies is located at the campus which was developed by the Tala Hydropower Project Authority (THPA) – a joint project between the Government of India and the Royal Government of Bhutan.
Then, the Royal University of Bhutan shifted the faculty of Commerce and its students from Sherubtse College to this business college in 2008.
Appointing Mr. Lhato Jamba as the Project Director, he was tasked to lay the foundation and supervise the modifications of the existing infrastructure into an educational institution. Subsequently, he took over as the first director of the college.
Currently, Dr. Sonam Choiden as its second President manages the overall administration, management, and development of the college. The college has 63 faculty, 67 administrative staff, and total of 1584 enrolled students for the 2019-2020 academic session.
