Personality Enrichment Programme

Personality Enrichment Programme (PEP)

At IIEBM, along with a focus on academic excellence, we lay a lot of stress on the holistic development of students in areas other than core academics, which is the need of the hour keeping in mind the high expectations of the corporate world.
Personality Enrichment Program is a uniquely designed 3 tier program which is aimed at enhancing and improving different aspects of the student’s personalities.

Tier 1- This module focuses on General Awareness, General Knowledge, Aptitude, Quantitative Skill, Logical Thinking ability etc.
Tier 2 – This module focuses on written & spoken English, business etiquettes, presentation & oratory skills, overall communication skills etc.
Tier 3 – This module focuses on Research.

PEP is part of every semester where students are required to take part in number of rigorous assignments, activities, exercises and tasks, where they would be required to do extensive reading, research, analysis, prepare reports and give presentations.

The PEP Program helps students to develop a habit of reading, become research oriented & techno savvy and cultivates a logical thinking approach in them. It also inculcates in students qualities like being punctual, responsible, self disciplined and fosters team-spirit.

Students are assessed and graded on a regular basis for all PEP activities. A regular feedback is given to all students on an individual basis to ensure the overall improvement and enhancement of their personalities.

The PEP marks form a part of the Internal Assessment of students.

Some activities conducted under different tiers of the PEP Program are:

Book Reviews:
In an era where knowledge workers constitute majority work force of organizations, it is highly imperative for students to be knowledgeable and not just educated.

In this module students are required to select a book from a wide selection of books available in the library and prepare a review on the same. They are also required to present the lessons drawn and learnings taken from that book to the entire batch, thus improving their own communication and presentation skills as well as making their batch mates aware of different books.

Management by Watching Movies
Movies, theatre and literature are a reflection of society, social behavior, prevailing business, political and cultural environment. In this module, students are shown movies on varied themes like leadership, motivation, goal setting, inter-personal behavior etc.
