Different ways of Industry Interface

GBF (Global Business Forum):

This forum is really unique in student perspectives as students of GIBS will get to interact with 500+ industrialists within a span of two years. GBF offer members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts along with positive, supportive, and structured environment to exchange quality business referrals. As students play an important role of hosting the events will get ample opportunities to explore corporate world.

Industry Live Projects

For all students to gain real time experience, it is necessary that they go through hands-on training. This platform is provided by the skills that they acquire from the short projects that they do from Small Scale Industries. This is an excellent opportunity for students to have close interaction with the industry-experts who frequently give them live projects to work on. On completion of their projects, the students are required to make presentation of their reports before the industry representatives, faculty members and students.

Short projects are allotted in all of the functional areas of management. The student is expected to study and understand how things work in real time scenario. Students are encouraged to do 3-4 industrial live projects apart from Summer Internship and Final Semester Project to get maximum Industrial Exposure.

While working on live and time-bound projects, they gain actual experience of the corporate culture. The process helps them develop professional attitude, sense of responsibility, analytical ability and leadership qualities. It also helps the industry in assessing the students’ performance and potential, on the basis of which pre-placement offers are often made.

Internships & Industrial Visits

As part of the curriculum, each student takes up live projects with a company for a period of 8-10 weeks, after the completion of the first year. The summer internship is the perfect opportunity for students to apply the theoretical concepts learnt within the classrooms. It is an occasion for prospective managers to explore varied career opportunities in the areas of their interest. They get a better grasp of the important inter-linkages among different functions and develop a realistic managerial perspective on corporate workings.

Industrial visits represent important activities in any Business School that contribute to the achievement of various essential learning outcomes and programme objectives. Frequent Industrial Visits are organized in GIBS so that student will be aware about how various activities related to marketing, financing and human resource are carried out in company and this exposure will make them industry ready.

Workshops, Guest Lectures & Seminars

GIBS’s unique Workshops allows students to further develop marketable business skills in an intensive, interactive environment. Topics are selected through input from industry, program administrators, and students.

Guest lectures are an integral part of the pedagogy of GIBS. GIBS invites Guest speakers from premier management schools like IIMs and XLRI and several industry professionals to share their valuable insights from their loaded experience about current business issues, the challenges they are faced with and how they dealt with them.

Seminars offer students the opportunity to interact with top industry leaders, experienced business managers, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and small-business owners. Designed to introduce students to different aspects of business and industry, the series also includes information on career opportunity and development. A weekly post-seminar reception allows students to talk one-on-one with speakers and network with their peers.
