MBA Orientation Programme

The institute conducts a 3 day, management orientation programme every year, for the first year MBA students. This orientation programme which marks the beginning of the two year post graduation in management, aims to assist students in developing an understanding of Management Education. It introduces the students to the teaching –learning processes of the MBA programme and aims to familiarize them with the faculty members, staff, seniors and various other institute resources.

The orientation programme is an exciting and fun filled process involving various games, experiential exercises, case solving sessions, role plays etc. Most of these sessions involve students to participate in a group, thus bringing in the first lessons on management. The programme also involves an inaugural address by the Director, who introduces the elements of the MBA Programme offered by the university and elaborates on the performance expectations from the students.

There are also sessions on student etiquettes, evaluation pattern and systems and campus placements. Other auxiliary facilities offered by the institute like linkage with banks for education loans are also discussed during the 3 day orientation. An interaction with seniors on the penultimate day brings the orientation programme to an end.
