Under the aegis of Goyal Educational Trust, Global Institute of Business Studies located in the Bangalore corporate milieu has been setting high educational and ethical standards in the short existence so far. Age is certainly no yardstick to judge the caliber of educational institutions. It is natural that we revere the universities that are hundreds of years old that grow like the aging trees with roots in all directions. Some institutions like GIBS succeed in making a mark nationally and internationally within a few years of operations. GIBS succeeded in attracting foreign faculty and foreign students along with links with several prestigious educational organizations abroad so soon. On the other hand, some institutions seem to be sleeping through decades and turning out mediocre students who possess only theoretical knowledge and fail to compete successfully for good jobs.
The GIBS center of excellence amidst many others in Bangalore
Locations do matter, though the best universities across the world have their campuses far away from busy, polluted cities and provide an aura of tranquility amidst the expanses of nature for students to contemplate their lessons,. A hermit-like existence would be best temporarily to get at all the finer nuances of lessons and develop critical thinking in order to get at the root of a multitude of questions pertaining to the curriculum. Yet, physical activities maintain the balance, since it is a healthy mind in a healthy body that works best.
The 4.5 acre green GIBS campus on the periphery of the ever-busy 10 million strong Bangalore universe is quite suited to academic rigors! A range of academic, literary and cultural pursuits besides the hostel facilities keep the students in a perpetual state of animated learning. The learned and dedicated faculty along with the proactive management, the buildings and the infrastructure, the classrooms and the workshops, it is a long story of dynamic practical learning and applications during those few semesters.
Like the earth that moves on its orbit along with several other planets, Bangalore is blessed as an educational center of great intensity. Several private universities compete for students along with innumerable colleges and some that are mere money-making organizations. Engineering, medicine, management, hospitality, tourism, textiles, not to forget computers and software, the list of super higher education centers in Bangalore never ends. In which field would you wish to try your luck? Make sure that it is a fair, reputed institution and the choice of institute is often a basic mistake. Be assured that GIBS would deliver the goods with excellent apprenticeships and placements as long as the boys and girls are committed and perform their duties brilliantly.
Internships and placements are available in Bangalore with some of the biggest names on the international horizon! It is true that students of colleges in remote areas may be missing out on some of these golden opportunities so early in life. Can we not safely say that the GIBS MBA or PGDM with all the experiences and openings, industry contacts and first-hand knowledge provides a jump start in a professional business management career for life?
Students of varied backgrounds in graduation opt for the postgraduate degrees. A large number of students studied commerce during graduation while others have completed BBA/BBM, BSC, BPharma, BE, BTech etc. Each of these backgrounds carries greater weight when combined with the MBA or PGDM tag and would result in climbing higher on the professional ladder and finally reach senior executive positions. The business management field does provide some of the fastest career advancements and within ten years, it would be a success story in a mega corporation, perhaps posted abroad in a multinational conglomerate. Travel and work in foreign countries is certainly a great lure for the young generation of Indians full of vitality and drive, and the preferred destinations are America and Australia, England, among other European countries.
In the final analysis, it is the challenging spirit of competition that keeps the waves of students moving each year. The driving force may be their own inner urges to accomplish and serve the family, society and country but it is severe competition too. As a result, how the young boys and girls speak, dress, study and succeed is motivated by the competitive spirit that keeps nudging them on and on.
The most universally applied management concepts
Though several new age careers like the media have dawned with the technological changes in the present day world, business management reigns supreme. In India, large scale management education is several decades old, starting perhaps fifty years ago. Something as basic as business management extends to every organization of all dimensions besides the family that appears like some sort of business establishment too, with money dealings every day.
The essentials of a business like finance, workers and raw materials for manufacture or the delivery of services apply partly at least to the family life. Nothing could be more universal than business management that applies to governments and NGOs, social service organizations, charities, peace keeping missions, sports organizations, cultural centers and mega businesses. Everywhere, money and workers are found with a vision and mission, though raw materials and manufacture may not apply, though services may be provided.

Significance of Women’s Day!
Significance of Women’s Day!
Global Institute of Business Studies, serves many boys and girls as the bridge that links the innocent school years and the professional life. The working life at the different levels may very well last a lifetime with more and more people nowadays not retiring from an active lifestyle until the very end. The career path needs to be very carefully chosen in view of the fact that most of the adult years would be spent chasing that particular dream.
Except the basics of the surroundings, not very much is learned in the school. The formative years in school are certainly very important in imbibing the ethics and values that make us what we are. Yet, higher thinking and the pursuit of professional goals would be possible only in tertiary education when the complexities of professional life sink into the consciousness. Higher secondary school does bring an introduction to the higher thinking and a certain level of juvenile maturity is attained.
Bachelors and masters courses at GIBS
After completing Class 12 or the equivalent pre-university course, the boys and girls could join the graduate course at GIBS like the BBA or BCom, three-year degree courses that consist of six semesters. Those who have already graduated with at least fifteen years of combined school and college education would qualify for the postgraduate courses MBA or PGDM.
Specialized instruction in business management
Unlike institutions that teach a number of courses in different subject areas like mass media, fashion and textiles, hospitality and law, GIBS concentrates on a single area. The advantage is an immense level of competence in the chosen subject. All the research and practice, thinking and planning and faculty, everything is geared towards the accomplishment of knowledge and awareness of a single subject. Don’t you think that would be an advantage in a world that values specialization so much?
The contemporary knowledge explosion!
Information technology and software have facilitated the immediate copying and transfer globally of vast bodies of knowledge. Nothing remains private now and the curriculum taught in business schools in America and England are quite the same as the courses taught in GIBS. The faculty and the delivery, the student experiences and the facilities may differ. GIBS has set up a very impressive 4.5 acre green campus in the peaceful suburban Bangalore that encourages the most competitive study and accomplishment of corporate knowledge and skills.
Like in show business, business is a field where the personality and the expressions, the aura and the communication in speech and writing mean so much. Interacting with clients and customers in a range of settings and promoting agreements and friendships is important. Multicultural settings and services abroad in mega MNCs require a sustained effort where you cannot take things sitting down.
In spite of a faculty that is experienced and industry wise and hailing from several countries, an adequate educational infrastructure would still be necessary to produce excellent business managers. GIBS possesses the requisite infrastructure to enable boys and girls from near and far to settle down comfortably in the well-organized hostel systems with communications, transport, health and banking facility within reach, along with excellent cuisine.
This home away from home may be difficult for some students to adjust with, like those who always lived at home with parents during the schooling years. Yet, most are able to adjust very well to the new independent lifestyle that does encourage an active lifestyle, though they must be careful not to adopt the wrong path. Whether four or six semesters, it is a long journey that requires diligence and lots of patience, since it happens one day at a time. Education is certainly not a fairy tale where you suddenly find yourself transformed!
Consider the performances of the previous batches
While deliberating on which subject and which institute to join, the best guide is the past placement records of the institution. Each year brings happy endings to a majority of students who have performed excellently and find superb placement opportunities with leading companies. It is the achievement of the placement committee, the advisory board and the international networking as a result of the GIBS alumni efforts that together makes it all possible.
Learning business management theories and practical training is different from becoming well rounded professionals who can shine as a business manager and tolerate the stresses of live action. Taking crucial decisions and managing a workforce may be some of the challenging duties.
A positive training schedule from writing resumes to facing interviews and participation in group discussions molds the working personality well. Interaction with industry leaders and the internships expose them to real working conditions. That is often the cause of conflict because of the wide differences between the educational materials and the workplace conditions.
