Automation has today entered almost every aspect of life as a result of mechanization and technology. While the advantages of such industry and online based cultures may be good news for economic development, the traditional human touch seems to be missing. We are getting more electronic and mechanical as the years roll past! One wonders if such is the condition of the educational system in contemporary times when youngsters use every kind of gadget imaginable.
The Global Institute of Business Studies in Bannerghatta, Bangalore, may be richly endowed with the benefits of modern technology in infrastructure, but maintains a caring, trusting and cooperative atmosphere in its dealings with students. The students themselves work at different levels. The Class 12 pass outs would study for the degree courses like BBA and BCom. Graduates would enter the MBA course and the PGDM. Though students from diverse backgrounds like the many Indian states study here besides foreign students, they all live together in a fraternal spirit.
While we often describe academic and professional organizations as one big family, is it really so? They do belong to a single system, united by campus rules, the curriculum, the professors and the infrastructure. They have common dreams of finding successful placements and qualifying for good jobs through internships and tests and interviews.
Right through the entire spectrum of activities of the weeks and months of the several semesters, the students work individually or in teams, supervised by teachers, counselors or mentors. Learning to work together in harmony itself is a special skill that is essential to good performance in multicultural organizations. Here in this hallowed training ground, business managers of the future are nurtured each day.
The GIBS counseling and mentoring process
The weekly counseling session brings together students and counselors with the purpose of helping students refine professional goals. At this stage, students may be full of dreams but are lacking in a realistic understanding of the industry conditions and requirements. They know little about the tomorrows though they possess the potential to develop in terms of latent skills and intellectual ability. Finding the right opportunities for them is relevant to the duties of the counseling committee.
Career information supplies information about the syllabus and further educational opportunities besides professional openings. Bringing dreams and reality closer together is the task of the Institute committees.
The three Mentoring Rooms also provide teacher-student teacher interaction in the process of student development. The mentoring takes place in little groups of 3 students and monthly meetings throughout the academic years throw light on personal problems and intimate concerns. Mentors possess professional experience and groups are arranged according to fields of interest. As a result, students develop confidence levels. They understand the industry better and choose career plans. Support and guidance are crucial at these early stages before they reach professional milestones. Developing employability skills and framing a powerful curriculum vitae are crucial concerns. One to one guidance goes a long way indeed. Training to face interviews successfully plays an important role in getting good appointments.
The staff around the GIBS infrastructure
The library and digital library, cafeteria, gymnasium, swimming pool, and amphitheater are some important aspects of the student life. Campus life has its many moral and esthetic rewards though students need to observe a large number of rules and timings. The hostels and the academic block, playgrounds and the swimming pool are all parts of that beehive of activity that happens every day in GIBS.
It does sound a hectic life that it certainly is! A successful student life is constantly on the move in search of knowledge and experience. If it is not lectures and workshops, seminars and presentations, it may involve field visits to nearby industries within Bangalore city. Each activity is controlled and supervised, every activity is planned and organized by the expert staff. Institutions all over the world follow similar study and work procedures based on research for optimum student achievement and authentic learning.
While the academic study can often get tedious with research based study sessions, ample opportunities exist for recreation through games and sports in a rich naturally endowed 4.5-acre campus on the outskirts of Bangalore. The Morning Prayer ground, a farm house, a pretty pond, waiting for lounge, the jogging track, and a parking lot provide an ambiance suitable for hard work and refreshing morning and evenings. Heath care facilities on the campus attend to such problems that may arise.
Students need a private space!
The over busy lifestyle can get stressful and students find a private moment in the self-study sessions that are certainly required. Since many situations in life like writing examinations and making professional decisions require independent thought and judgment, the self-study sessions develop a moment of introspection when the students are by themselves with the best study materials available. The library books, research journals, and online materials provide a huge selection of up to date research materials that provide ample food for thought.
The teaching methodology constantly encourages participatory and interactive learning that has proven to be the most effective study method. These study lessons are supervised by good industry experienced, qualified and capable teachers from across India and abroad. The finest minds that serve consultation and research tasks side by side with teaching duties are at the forefront of the profession. Research publications and contributions to academic journals confirm their depth of knowledge.
A unique learning experience in business skills
Rated among the leading business management institutes in India, GIBS maintains an aura of excellence in every aspect of its existence. A disciplined approach to institute routines and a common purpose keeps the large family working on their date with destiny. Internships and placements come much later in the course, but it is a hectic coverage of the demanding syllabus from day one after the orientation. Industry leaders and guest speakers enlighten the students of real working conditions out there as if revealing trade secrets. The alumni come forward to guide the novices with their global network of contacts. At every step, eager helping hands and minds facilitate the training of the future business managers with dedicated hearts and souls.

Some events happen regularly each year at Global Institute of Business Studies! The Orientation program over a series of sessions that commenced on 14th July 2017 means a grand beginning for the two batches of eager young boys and girls. The batches of BBA and BCom aspirants would remain immersed in academics and practical lessons, discovering the industry and their true callings over the next three years until 2020. They are fresh out of 12 years of school education and have so much to learn. The business world with internships and placements does seem a complex universe. The 21st-century existence itself is getting rather difficult amidst all the technology and controversy, though so much easier with online facilities.
The radiant occasion
The event goes down as a memorable instance. Seated on that impressive stage were several luminaries who would light up the lives of the students. Along with the Chief Guest Mr. Suresh Babu - Performance Coach, Project Management Professional & Corporate Trainer, the other eminent personalities included Mr. Ritesh Goyal – MD, GIBS, Dr. Aparna Rao – Director, GIBS, and Ms. Uzma Nayeem - Head of Placement, GIBS.
Along with the imposing faculty and dignitaries, let us wish successful studies and professional accomplishments to those children of diverse backgrounds who have taken up the business management challenge. The students were congratulated for obtaining admission into a prestigious institution like GIBS which is a powerful beginning to the realization of their corporate dreams. Adjustments take time but as the weeks and the months of the future unfold in the success-filled Bangalore ambiance, a smooth transition to a new lifestyle would dawn to bring fresh thoughts, hopes, and aspirations. By the end of the course in 2020, your lives would be transformed after laying a professional foundation to build upon in the years to come. Growing from a seed to a tree may take decades but three years is a short duration in comparison.
The intensive orientation schedule over several days includes talks by some experts in the field of business and education. Along with Dr. Aparna Rao in the first session, Ms. Bhavana would speak on Career making and the importance of soft skills on 15th July. On Monday, Prof. Beena speaks on the Importance of Time Management while Ms. Uzma delivers a talk as Head of Corporate Relations.

The GIBS success story
GIBS has often been in the headlines in the bustling business education world that India has rapidly become. Honors and awards, accreditations and rankings continue to grace this towering symbol of business studies in Bangalore, itself a global city after the software revolution. Famous for gardens too, the greenery filled 4.5-acre GIBS campus in Bannerghatta is an intimate focus of all that contemporary management professionals can dream of.
The IndiaCollegeSearch rankings for 2017 and 2016 both reflect GIBS and that means so much because millions of students and hundreds of colleges figure there. Consider some affiliations and accreditations like the University of Mysore, Bharathiar University, UGC, NAAC, MHRD, ISO, AIMA, and so much more!
What sets GIBS apart
Many thousands of college entrants and graduates try for business education each year. Courses of varying durations and fee structures, full-time, part-time and online are available in plenty. Yet what are the job opportunities later? The dismal truth is that a great majority of business graduates do not succeed in the corporate world and have to be content with mediocre jobs. It is a sad story that is repeated each year when mighty dreams collapse within a few years.
GIBS has been keeping up with its promises. The hefty fees in business schools should have valid returns when many students obtain loans for study. How will the loans be repaid unless the company salaries are good enough?
Well, the two or three years of education come first before postings are possible through the internship performance, campus interviews, and the selection process. MBA plus PGPM is a two-year full-time on campus course while PGDM is a one-year course. BBA and BCom are three-year courses.
A sound investment in your future is the outcome of the study at GIBS! Sound educational practices that combine a diverse mix of academics, presentations, seminars, and workshops with sports and cultural activities in a green campus keep spirits alive. Industry visits and guest speakers enable a practical approach that is realistic and achieve a true understanding of what professional lives would be like after quitting the institution. GIBS alumni across the world maintain contacts and further the corporate web that results in outstanding placements.
Learn, Earn and Return
With all the social and humanitarian work activities that GIBS participates in, it is a sustainable world of values that is imparted to students. Firstly, it is a challenging world of semester-based work spread over several studies and work modules. Semesters do get rather hectic with assignments and deadlines along with outings and activities. Together, they keep the clock ticking to indicate the passing of weeks and months. The countdown has begun. Like everything else in life, time is not infinite.
After successful placements are received, it is the time to build upon the foundation created in the Institute. Students now know quite welll what to expect, how to talk and behave and how to find solutions to professional problems. A global business perspective has been achieved and the ability to work in multicultural environments learned.
After some years of successful work experience and raising a family, it is time to reward society for everything that has been received by the grace of the divine. Joining humanitarian causes and helping environmental conservation along with art and culture are some areas that need dedicated efforts.
Start dreaming, children, but heed your teachers and study and work on the right track.
