Any visitor to the Global Institute of Business Studies in Bannerghatta, Bangalore, would first see the infrastructure like the buildings and playgrounds beside the gardens and greenery. Delving further, the boys and girls busy with studies or activities would come to light. The other courses being PGDM, corporate BBA, and B.Com. MBA and PGDM are provided with dual specializations. For some decades now, it has been thought that an MBA from a reputed institution is all you required for resounding professional success. Trying to probe further, it is a world of students’ dreams and aspirations, business management being the top sector that attracts the talent universally. And so, it is at GIBS that has several academic programs besides the high in demand MBA. One way or the other, it is a similar business knowledge that is gathered at the differing levels.
Though a Bachelor and a Master degree may hold a great difference, many have succeeded spectacularly with a Bachelor degree alone. On the job, the experience is perhaps greater than academic degrees and real job experiences with reputed companies would help pull up the socks and learn the trade faster than study in classrooms. Professional courses have a great advantage of internships and perhaps placements with some of the best companies and Bangalore is lucky to have many such international companies. The best colleges maintain a steady connection with the industry so that the curriculum and training are quite specific in catering to the current day required of the industry. A network of connections ensures that internships and placements would be spectacularly successful.
Maybe, it sometimes appears that the procedure happens automatically but that is far from the truth. It does sometimes appear that students lead charmed lives with everything done for them by the faculty and the staff. Colleges would advertise facilities they do not really possess and charge exorbitant fees. Several institutions and even colleges and universities work illegally, hold out many rosy promises at the time of admission that is not awarded. Attendance figures are cooked up and questions papers, assignment, and projects may all be leaked, copied and pirated for a small fee. It is true that the education system in India is much maligned with degrees being bought and sold freely.
If the last test of education is job security, then the educational system prevailing in India is far from successful management, perhaps 70% of the management students fail to get good employment. Internship and placement can really be promised or some lucky people can be successful, which are with the drive and caliber. It is a test of the existence of the most qualified person in the urban jungle in a sense! In the quick, quick and panic of receiving the degree, many beginners are victims of unscrupulous colleges and if they are lucky to get one, then the material remains with ordinary jobs.
Perhaps a few awards and recognitions speak for themselves:
Besides attending classes, seminars, and workshops, what else do the students keep themselves busy with? Placements and Internships are high on the agenda too and concern student futures. Sports and Fitness would balance the mind. Cultural activities develop talents and skills along with Photography, Communication, Library, and Entrepreneurship. Maintenance activities are crucial everywhere as is Finance and IT, Marketing and Human Resources. With so much to do, there is little time for the idleness of mind that leads to wayward things. Classroom lessons find practical implementation in a wide range of activities. Gardening too offers physical fitness and creativity. It is true that the dream world of college education leads to a lot of spoiled youth who issue free time in picnics and parties.
Besides GIBS, the organization has many disciplines working away behind the scenes to achieve philanthropic and altruistic goals. The GIBS SOCIAL FOUNDATION and GLOBAL BUSINESS FORUM are two of those arms. GIBS Academy and GIBS Sports Academy have their particular visions and missions. PATHFINDER works via the three arms of VALUE CREATIONS, BUSINESS ACADEMY, and EDU SOLUTIONS.
Unlike many money-making institutions, when you join GIBS, you are in safe hands. Internships and placement ensure that students' careers get a unique launch pad for successful futures.
