Wishing for more frequent events like Student of the Year 2017 at GIBS

Like the rarity of the sun and the moon, gala events like the Convocation and the Student of the Year can only be held once annually. One wishes that such inspiring occasions recurred more often. Let us find satisfaction in the fact that these events occur in the life of every university and institution and a single megacity like Bangalore has dozens of such organizations. So, they all add up to many memorable events to uplift the feelings and ideas of the society of which we are an intrinsic part.
A single day's events represent the labor of two years or longer! Academics, attendance, and cultural, sports, discipline and overall performance were the factors that contributed towards the selection of one towering student of the year. True it is that several candidates were in the running and certain it is that a few boys and girls were disappointed. Yet, the fact remains that the sun and the moon must reign supreme, with nothing like them. Valasala NVA Sai Shankar received the highest comprehensive scores and well deserved the crown of STUDENT OF THE YEAR. Congratulations once again.

Busy with the charged events taking place at the Student of the Year program, the recently concluded Convocation in the same month of November remained fresh in the memory. Though quite academic and research-based, the Convocation represented all the yearnings of the youth towards academic and professional success. Study for its own sake is counterproductive. Knowledge must be applied for constructive purposes of nation-building and professional accomplishments. Yet, jobs come so much later. First, the boys and girls have to undergo at least 12 years of schooling and perhaps 5 years of higher education to qualify for an MBA.

The dynamic GIBS boys and girls
What was common to both the high-profile events were the infinite energy and enthusiasm, the verve and spirit of the youthful Global Institute of Business Studies students. One glimpse and it is certain that professional success is on the way with all the dynamic personalities and skills that the students have achieved. Should we refer to them as students any longer? Yes, and no. In a sense, they would remain learners all their lives since the nature of knowledge is infinite. Experiences would add to the understanding and greater skills would be acquired in the years to come. If GIBS has succeeded over the years since the inception in 2001, it is the dedicated faculty along with other staff besides the students themselves who should receive a pat on the back.
Besides the happenings within the institutional dream and green campus at Bannerghata, Bangalore, it is the internships and impending placements that finally bring the professional touch. It is truly a sensational transformation before and after the two years that create business management professionals who can compete in an international setting.

The starry Student of the Year awards function
Lots of color and drama, excitement, and a little tension accompanied that much looked forward to event. Arrangements were many and little by little, things were happening in the background. Planning and preparations, decorations and furniture arrangements took place slowly but surely. Trophies and mementos, videos and cash prizes, catering arrangements, dances, and invitations, at one time it appeared unmanageable. Students were many and duties being eagerly distributed brought relief from worries. As the date was approaching, the Convocation elation remained and a sense of achievement prevailed. Now it was time for one more feather in the cap.
An imposing audience of 400 had gathered at the venue at the appointed time and place. Eyes and ears remained anxiously tuned to the rhapsody of programs that gradually unfolded over time. The spirit of enterprise was apparent on a training ground for business professionals. Everything was in order to celebrate the success of training that proverbially can transform cabbages into cauliflowers. Each of the awardees deserved what they received at the convocation and the student of the year functions.

A rain of awards!
Muthu Venkatesh received the Best Sportsperson title. Marziam Fatima was recognized as Best Talent-Female. Sameer Khan was judged the Best Talent-Male. Creative Club was certainly the best of the several clubs and committees. A Rolling Trophy went to the Organizing Committee.
Sandeep Bhansali and Emcee Archi deserve kudos as the hosts. Sarthak Bhaskar Mangaonkar received the felicitations of a lifetime for numerous skating victories in international tournaments.
Chief Guest Sarath Hegde, Guest of Honor Aruna Singh and Special Guests Bipin Ram Aggarwal, Satish Mittal and Girish Gowda made it all possible.

Lessons to learn from the two mega events
Not all the learning takes place in classrooms, seminars, and workshops in the life of a student, and more so in these technological times. Stepping out into real life events and learning through practical experiences, sustained study, and work, dedication to duty, society and country finally lead to the conquest of mighty leaks.

GIBS beckons triumphantly as the year 2017 is ending

Like a city that never really sleeps, colleges, institutions and universities remain alert 24/7/365. The complexities of administration, faculty and research, student affairs, semesters and examinations, catering, transport, law and order in the campus, learning activities – you can well imagine that some supernatural power needs to guide the fate of the students in their search for excellence and professional success. In spiritual terms, India is profoundly blessed with a mighty pantheon of gods and religious festivals celebrated almost every day. Global Institute of Business Studies has had an inspired and motivated existence, blessed by the many powers that surround.

The fervor of the year 2017 is soon ending though some important events are awaited anxiously. With the convocation done, it is thoughts of yet another batch of students that keeps the authorities occupied. Education is not a mighty automated machine, though much has been achieved in terms of AI and VR. It is all so very real, the lecture halls and library, the laboratory and the internships, plush placements coming as sweet surprises for those who deserve them the most. Just like the seasons come and go, batches of boys and girls come temporarily and leave some semesters later like guests in a vast hotel. There is a difference because the hospitality here teaches a recipe for a successful professional life.

The inspiring convocation is done. The STUDENT OF THE YEAR program remains pending, but so close on 25th Novmber that the aura of the light and sound can be felt. Dance India Dance, Fire dancers, Rock Band - that is not all, though. Awards are coming for student achievement in the various fields like academics primarily, but extra-curricular and sports activities that together make up the sum total of the GIBS extraordinary campus existence. The music and the song will give way to dinner amidst a spectrum of honored guests from corporates around the country.

Personality Development
Much of what humans are results from personality grooming to present the best qualities and excel at the executive level, apply lessons learned and motivate the team. That sounds like soft skills, but it is hardly as simple as that. The key is experience rather than the book or the classroom. Ms. Archana Deshmukh put it all so well. The Guest Lecture provided ample materials to ponder. Solving problems and making decisions may be just a few words, but difficult to apply in real life situations. Jobs are no textbook situations either. The talk did bring an additional level of confidence to the trainees waiting to launch their careers. Professional success seems to be getting closer.

The 40-hour Project Management Program
What are the different stages of a successful project? Starting with the conceptualization, it is a tricky progression through planning and initiation, execution, control and closing. Human existence and not studies alone is quite dependent upon projects of one kind or another. Thinking of the larger world and the significance of projects, the lessons were well learned by the MBA students. The knowledge and skills, tools and techniques were taught in the program and enthusiastically well-read. Case studies further strengthened the grasp upon the subject, prepared for those professional challenges that are soon coming.

Wait and watch to conquer higher peaks
While it is true that much of human life involves waiting for major events to happen, it sometimes appears that there is not a moment to lose. Happy times seem very fast while difficult times move slowly. The GIBS student faces both situations, days of joyous celebrations and examination stress in academic terms. ‘When will the course end’ is a question that every student asks at some point or the other during the courses. The worry, of course, is not about the course ending, but the stress about internships and job placements. If every boy and girl is assured of excellent jobs at the end of the course, perhaps the anxiety would be reduced. GIBS is a young institution and records show that the students have been doing very well and earning excellent placements with several MNCs that have now established branches in India. Bangalore itself has received the status of a global city, mainly due to software exports.

While students enter GIBS with lots of dreams in their young minds, by the time they complete their academic courses, they have engendered even higher dreams! At the beginning, they did not understand the extent of the management courses that they have taken up. Their experience indeed is like climbing a mountain. As you climb higher and higher, more and more vistas open up. You get to see dozens of smaller peaks and these would all have to be crossed on the way to the top. And so they do each single day with every lesson and activity. The trekking will never end all life long.
