A motivating new beginning for BBA/BCom entrants at the GIBS Orientation in Bangalore

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.

Theradiant 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 theimposing 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 ambience, 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 yearsto 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. Dr. Chitra throws light on Finance and Career Management on Tuesday while Leema and group deal with the Importance of Communication. On Wednesday, Mr. Shubhendu speaks on Marketing and Mr. Sriram delivers a talk on General Management. On Thursday, 20th July, it is the turn of Mr. Pradeep, Senior HR Consultant. Prof Laxmi R. and Mr. Kumar Sai Deepak take up Team Building Activities. On Friday, Dr. Nandeesh V. Hiremath speaks on DISHA - Power of Focus for Achieving Success in Career & Life.

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 many 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 businessgraduates do not succeed in the corporate world andhave to be content with mediocre jobs. It  is a sadstory 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 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 study 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.

Global Institute of Business Studieslaunchesan Innovation Center

Date: Time: Place:

GIBS has reached several outstanding milestones within a short ten-year duration of existence.  Large modern institutions contain several smaller units that form its different branches, somewhat like theendless stories of a building. The complexities of academic and professional tasks and training purposes can thus be achieved at diverse venues, each with a different thrust.
The GIBS Residential Campus witnessed a special event on 14th September 2017 with the inauguration of the Innovation Center. The GIBS Innovation Center is a creative step in the right direction. An International Speaker Mr. Paul Susheel has been appointed as the Head of the Innovation Center.

An Innovation Center with a hallowed mission

Everybody, students and workers alike, needs an oasis or a retreat where they can rest and work in peace, away from the stresses of the classroom and city tensions. The well-organized atmosphere nurtures such creative thinking that results in innovative ideas, quite lacking in the humdrum life we otherwise lead. The Innovation Center is such a refuge meant to engender that spark of creativity and innovation beyond academics and rigorous curriculums.
Discovering themselves is the task at hand for students in a surrounding where the mind feels free to explore and to experiment with innovative ideas.
Besides the inspiring Head in the form of Mr. Paul Susheel, we would expect motivating materials to be provided to set the mind working towards innovative endeavors. Like a laboratory, perhaps audio-visual materials along with subject-based materials would prove useful. Along with management that is the chief theme at GIBS, materials to encourage hobbies and wider interests would prove a blessing. It is important that students go beyond their management domain and its components to discover the wider world beyond the campus.
Ideas flourish in a non-competitive environment
The tremendous stress of competition often destroys the spirit of creativity. Out here at the Innovation Center is a place where the mind can be at peace, far from industry and institutional stresses. The pressure to perform excellently is absent here. The best minds can come together to find new approaches and discuss novel ideologies.
Neutral environments allow us to be who and what we are, where you are not compelled to adopt any judgments or take sides. The flowering of thoughts and ideas would thus be quite possible. A brainstorming and a passion are essential and the Innovation Center is scheduled to become a womb for the new age research and a fraternal spirit of togetherness to discover, to cooperate and to entertain.

Through such a process, the GIBS students would set off on intimate voyages of self-discovery to unlock hidden potential within their minds, hearts and souls. Management is essentially commercial, concerned with the business world, but is aimed at the public domain too.  Get ready, GIBS students, to test your ideas and find the best solutions to remain productive citizens that would benefit the public too. Along with commercial success at industry should come humanitarian concern for the people of the country to be served through charitable causes and industry policies.
