Corporate India guides B-School students

There is a shift change happening in B-school education these days. No more are textbooks considered the Bible in these institutes of learning. Many of them pride in the faculty they have painstakingly nurtured and the corporates they invite for weekend sessions.

PIBM for one has this wonderful concept of bringing in captains of industry to guide and help their students crack interviews and get a hands on feel of the problems being faced in the industry today and the tools used to overcome these issues. 
In fact, most B-Schools are shunning textbooks and having corporate India visiting their campuses to guide students along the path of learning.

corporate weekend
A typical corporate weekend will have students seated in the auditorium and an industry expert speaking on a specific issue that has been faced by that corporate and the methodology used to tackle or overcome the problem. After the session, a good half hour is spent on a Q&A with the industry big wig to clear any doubts and get to understand the problem at a micro level. In fact, corporate weekends are looked forward to because it is rare that a Vice President, Director or Regional Head comes visiting. Students yearn to have a Q&A with these front runners of industry who bring with them years of experience and problem-solving tools.

corporate weekendB-Schools like PIBM are also looking at industry experts providing inputs on syllabus planning and case studies specific to that industry. In fact, the trend is more towards discussing important cases and understanding how they have been resolved. With inputs from Ground Zero (corporate honchos), students get first-hand knowledge of critical issues and understand the fundamentals that go into resolving problems.
          It has also been seen that corporates provide a third-dimensional view of business, a ringside view -- that can only be provided by someone who knows and is directly involved in the day to day operations of that sector. Corporates also bring with them a minefield of statistics and data – all of which go into understanding the Whys and Ifs of that sector. In fact, corporate weekends are looked forward to and students rarely miss out on the opportunity to interact with luminaries from India Inc. PIBM believes that industry interface is vital for students to move ahead in the corporate ladder.

The glass ceiling has been broken. An industries today visiting campuses not only to teach but also to recruit. These corporates add value with their intellect and sound knowledge and their weight provides the much-needed boost that students need to step into the world of business.

The effects of demonetization

There has been a lot of talk at the long queues at banks and ATMs that demonetization is going to bring in the age of plastic money and the economy is going to see a resurgence. The point that we as lay men must understand is that demonetization has netted in close to Rs. 10 lakh crore for the exchequer.

With a 7 percent growth rate we can envisage that with more money coming in, our Crisil rating is going to go up. The economic forecast is buoyant and swipe machines have started replacing over the counter transactions.

The concept of keeping money at home is what Prime Minister Modi was against and this move is certainly going to stop hoarders from keeping stacks of cash at home. The shake-up is going to lead to an economic cleanup and real estate transactions are expected to be more transparent now. The sector is thriving on a 40:60 (black to white) ratio today. This move is certainly going to bring about a correction here. Real estate pundits are speculating that property prices which are now highly inflated will see the corrections. Certainly good times for potential buyers.
The larger picture is e-wallets are going to be the future and e-commerce the gateway to that future. Names like Paytm and Book a Cab are going to be our daily financial planners.




Well yes, Goldman Sachs and Credit Suisse will certainly look at pushing in dollars into the economy that will move forward. Financial pundits are predicting interest rate cuts and FD rates coming down. Globally though FDs are not considered the best saving option, Obviously mutual funds and other instruments will become sought after. Playing the markets will be the norm and sectors like retail and auto will bloom.

It won’t be long before we see a 9 percent growth. This rationing exercise by banks is due to one simple fact – that printing of millions of notes is taking time. The system will get regulated once the ATMs are up and running. A month or two more of discomfort and we will be on a roll. Rest assured the merits of demonetization far outnumber its pitfalls.

My Journey in PIBM



My Journey in PIBM
I joined PIBM on the 21st of June, 2015. The journey that I had in PIBM in Business Orientation Program was a fruitful learning in my life. From academic experience to extracurricular activity from corporate session to industrial visit, I learnt a lot in this process.

I will start with the industrial visits that we had where I visited 4 different industries. Before coming in PIBM, I never had any experience of visiting any Industry and didn’t have any knowledge or idea about how things happen inside a manufacturing plant. The 1st visit was at a retail store named DECATHALON. It was a sport item large retail or consumer end store, where we could find almost every products related to sports. I learnt how to manage such a big store in such a logical sensible manner without any nuisance. There I learn the first lesson regarding customer satisfaction. 2nd visit was at manufacturing and assembling plant of JOHN DEERE. It was the first time in my life when I saw how management plays a vital role in the corporate world. Here I saw how time management matter in smooth running of industry. The third visit that I had was at TIMES OF INDIA printing press. I came to know about all the process that followed through in printing a paper. The last company that I visited recently was at BHARAT FORGE which is a forge industry. Overall it was a memorable journey.

At PIBM, we had lot of corporate interaction through which I have gained immense knowledge. We had corporate interaction sessions every weekend and sometimes even more than that. In these sessions the experienced corporate heads coming from various sectors shared their experience and cleared our thoughts or queries. As all the corporate heads were from various background, we got the opportunity to know all subjective aspects whether it is HR, FINANCE or MARKETING.


Apart from teaching in the class, we can always go to faculty room and clear our doubts. They provide us extra classes for the doubts we have. We also have a feedback session with our teachers where they tell us in which field we need to improve. All the faculty members take good care by providing good guidance.

Apart from the process of acquiring knowledge and skills, we enjoyed sports events as well as talent search show named “ARAMBH”. As music and sports or any other extra activity is needed for a relaxed mind and perfect body, we got both with these two events. We have a regular session on music and fitness of body by the evening. As per me, these two events means a lot because I participated in both the event and achieved a small success in both. 


So, I enjoyed a lot in all these events that we had in these days during our foundation course. In the end, I will certainly say this that it is the first time in my life, where I have not been taught lessons, but involved with lessons. So, I hope a successful journey in PIBM in the upcoming times.

A NEW BEGINNING

A NEW BEGINNING

A New Beginning.. Beginning of our Careers.. Beginning of our Hard Work.. Passion.. Commitment.. Determination.. Dreams.. Beginning of a journey to success.. which is guided and supported by PIBM.. Our college our family..
I remember the day one in uniform full of enthusiasm when PIBM was welcoming us and silently giving a promise to  take us all to the pinnacle. We started our foundation program of 2 months. The purpose of this orientation was to make us understand crucial importance and get us ready for the upcoming 18 months. We were not only introduced to our subjects under each specialization but also to our faculties who will be as they were available 24*7 to groom us, guide us, to hear our problems and to solve them.
Further an introduction to our course and subjects we saw the pragmatic side also through visiting industries like PepsiCo, Whirlpool, Haier, Volkswagen, PIAGGIO and approximately more than 15 different companies in total, to experience the behind big story of any product and industry of which we will be part of tomorrow.
But today being students we need to understand the requirements within us to become a well suited corporate so we were privileged to have interactions with almost 30 corporate with designations like CEOs, VPs, Directors etc. through which we got to know the expectations of industry from fresher like us about our required knowledge, skills, attitude for this journey.
A lot of conceptual based sessions were conducted to make us strong with our concepts and removing our doubts regarding the same. Making us understand is not the only thing done here but also assuring that yes we actually understood is what PIBM does by taking evaluation on weekly basis, giving assignments, presentations and report on visits on daily basis.
Apart from curriculum we spend our evening with engagement activities comprising Gym, Aerobics, Guitar, Drum, Chess, Football, Badminton etc. and let me also tell you about the most exciting events held cultural day 'Aarambh' and sports day 'Aahvaan' organized by committees made up of us only.
So right from

Discipline to Fun..
Time Management to Time Arrangement..
Deadlines to Attendance..
Perceptions to Understandings..
Short term to Long term Goals..
Late night fun to early morning assignments..
