An outstanding combination of research-based faculty and dynamic curriculum, superb infrastructure and an infinitely challenging learning culture has catapulted Global Institute of Business Studies to the highest peaks. A few other factors count too, like international exposure, global networking for internships and placements and the Bangalore location that brings numerous MNCs within easy reach. Study and work amidst the garden city ambiance is stimulating enough. Garden city greenery in traditional terms, but the Karnataka capital has come a long way due to software excellence. Bangalore lives and breathes IT and the mega business has attracted many international companies to set up branches in the Electronic City and other enclaves. You can imagine what that means to would-be management graduates looking to make it good with a dramatic beginning to professional careers. They need not travel far and wide with many opportunities within easy reach across the city.
The mysteries of exceptional business management education
GIBS offers several graduate and postgraduate courses in business management like the Weekend MBA, the MBA plus PGPM, Corporate BBA and Corporate BCom. On what factors would you choose the best business school among the several found in every medium or large-sized city in India? Perhaps the opinions are based on reputations among colleagues and friends, online reviews, accreditations, and awards or the records of internships and placements. After completing Class 12 or graduation, it is a mighty chance to take since so much depends upon what procedures the institution would follow during those few fateful semesters.
The many students who get attracted to unscrupulous institutions due to one reason or the other probably never get a second chance at success. Perhaps the powerful advertising campaigns, fake news, convenient locations and affordable fees may tempt boys and girls towards moneymaking institutions. Waiting endlessly for employment or being satisfied with small jobs is the unwelcome fate of millions of management graduates each year after they exit the studies and enter the job market. Maybe books have been studied and examinations passed, a degree achieved, but to no avail in professional terms.
GIBS ranks among the best recently established business institutions
Does the age of a college or university have any relation to its excellence or performance? On one hand exists numerous institutions, many decades old that have gradually established awesome reputations through dubious means. Whether they deserve all the accumulated praise is a debatable point. The situation is different when it comes to traditional degrees that basically depend upon a qualified faculty without the need of excessive infrastructure or laboratory equipment. As a result, many cramped up city colleges have succeeded over the years.
Professional courses are different since they must possess industry connections that can ensure student internships and placements. That is a huge responsibility and few institutions succeed. Though only ten years old, GIBS is endowed with the appropriate facilities on a 4.5 acre green campus. Residential campuses succeed very well in building corporate training grounds by inculcating the spirit of independence and adventure, far away from the shelter of private homes.
Perhaps the recently established institutions are more in tune with the times like the new generation that is growing up with technology! Unshackled by traditions and conflicting thoughts on the past and the future, the new institutions like GIBS expresses innovation, the freshness of ideas and flexibility. The students study in a positive 21st-century environment and are progressive in thoughts and ideas. They experience no clash of cultures and ideas, unlike the older generation that is lost between two worlds.
October 2017 has been a busy month at GIBS
While every week has its share of seminars and workshops, assignments and projects, two particularly enlightening Guest Lectures occurred in October. Eminent industry professionals Partho Ganguli and Devanshu Ballabh delivered talks on the current job scenario. Building up personality skills and generating better employment opportunities are exactly what the GIBS students are trying to achieve in the race against time. If time is money, they do not possess much of it, only a few semesters remain before the courses end and employment begins, hopefully, withy excellent placements. The two guests certainly possessed valuable information, PG representing GWFM and XHire and DB from Unity Excellence LLP.
An SME (subject matter expert session) by Ms. Hamsa Gururaj on Organizational Behavior also provided excellent food for thought. Companies and organizations of one kind or the other form the lifeblood of business management professionals. Otherwise, managers would remain unemployed. She hails from McMaster University and holds a Ph.D. How humans react as individuals and groups in organizations turned out to cover several disciplines. Not only did the talk dwell on management and communication, but also the complexities of sociology and psychology.
Guest Lectures provide illuminating insights into the present conditions of the professional world as different from the theoretical studies based on books and other study materials. More of these eye-openers would be required to develop student ideas.
Communication Club was formally launched on 10th October. The main objective of the Communication Club is to create opportunities for students to experience the world of communications as it relates to career goals through events, informational sessions and further activities of future Professionals and to also lead in development and promotion of good practices in the field of Management. Also events like Professional Self Introduction, Mime show, Situation based questioning for the I Semester students. #GIBS #MBA #PGPM #BBA #BCOM
