Education with Fun
we focus on 360 degree development of the students. Our motto for providing management education is simple and straightforward, we do not emphasise only on the classroom studies but the other activities like sports, competition, industrial visits and expert lectures are equally optimised.
At SKPIMCS we strive for all round development of students for becoming full fledge management professionals. Seminar series is a sincere effort towards this goal.
Expert Lecture Series
Expert lecture series has been designed to sensitize the students to the recent trends affecting the corporate world. In this series, every Saturday we have lectures on specialized electives. The experts from the industry are invited to share their experience and talk to the students regarding the changes taking place in the corporate world. This helps students to make a link between the classroom teaching and real life situation.
Every year the institute conducts industrial visits at highly reputed organizations, to name a few like Mundra Port, PepsiCo India Holding Ltd., Hindustan Coca Cola Beverages Ltd. Zydus Cadila, Amul, Claris life sciences,The Times of India, Radio Mirchi etc. These visits help the students to bridge a gap between classroom and real corporate world knowledge.
Institute continuously organizes workshops on Entrepreneurship Development, Digital Marketing, Selling Skills, Strategic Management, Business Etiquettes and Interview Skills on to sharpen their skills and make them ready for the Industry.
The Movie Club
Now a days television programs & movies have been evolved as a great source of learning. Keeping this in mind we have started movie club, wherein students are shown different inspirational movies which convey some message to the students and give students learning lessons on resource management, team building, team work and many other management related issues. At the end of the movie session the learning from the movie are discussed which help the students to understand different corporate scenarios.
The Book Review Session
It is said that books are our best friend. Here, students are divided in the groups and allotted different books having management lessons and the groups have to make the presentation on the learning from that book. At the end of each presentation question answer session is held.
Management students need mixture of soft skills and hard skills to perform well in their examinations and also succeed in interviews of various companies. Personality Enhancement (PE) sessions have been part of the time table for SKPIMCS MBA students. Students are trained on fields of arithmetic aptitude and data interpretation, group discussions, personal interviews, grooming etc. Topics are divided by faculty members based on their skills and sessions are undertaken on weekly basis across all four semesters.
In this era of cut-throat competition, Management Students require mix of theoretical knowledge with understanding of real world issues. Management students should read business newspapers and make in-depth analyse of articles relevant to their subject in different semesters of MBA programme.
Business Quiz is an initiative by SKPIMCS-MBA to make students read and understand articles in detail so that they can attempt multiple choice questions on different themes. Questions related to brand associated with advertisements, name of CEOs of companies, matching of taglines with advertisements of brands, choosing right word among list of words for the different themes etc. are asked in quiz conducted on fortnightly basis.
