ORIENTATION AND INDUCTION
There is a rigorous Orientation and Induction Program which lasts for approximately 3 weeks prior to commencement of academic sessions.
During this period, students are given a detailed overview of the Management Course they have enrolled for, Institute’s expectations, Corporate expectations etc.
During the Induction and Orientation Program, students are addressed by Members of the Advisory Council, Entrepreneurs, eminent people from the Industry, Academia as well as Alumni of the Institute. This is also a time when the fresher students get to know their seniors.
CASE STUDY APPROACH
Besides regular lectures and interactive sessions, the Case Study Model is used as a powerful tool in the teaching methodology and pedagogy adopted at the Institute. Case based learning enables students to apply management theories learned in the classroom for situations posed in the case and come with possible recommendations and solutions.
EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING APPROACH
We adopt the Experiential Learning model to help student’s correlate theoretical inputs with their practical application. This helps students to better understand theoretical inputs and improves their correlation and re-collection of theory.
Theoretical inputs in functional areas like Marketing, HR, Finance, IT and Operations are further re-enforced by conducting workshops from industry experts who share their hands on experiences and practical inputs with students. This helps in re-enforcing the theoretical inputs which results in a better understanding of different subjects taught in the class room.
Workshops are conducted on non-academic areas like Budget Analysis, Time Management, Knowledge Management, Transactional Analysis, Leadership, Change Management, Japanese Techniques of Management, Stock Markets, Non-conventional Energy Resources, Renewable Energy, International Geographies, World History etc, to name a few which help in widening the knowledge horizon of students.
STUDENT MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
Students are formed into groups of 10 members who are then assigned a mentor from the industry or academia. The student groups are required to be in touch with their mentors and seek their guidance in different areas as well as use them as sounding boards for decisions pertaining to selection of specializations, identification of industry verticals they would like to make a career in, any personal or interpersonal problems they may be facing etc.
The buddy programme tool helps students to settle down early and do well in their academics and extra-curricular activities. It also helps in reducing absenteeism levels of students and improves their overall academic performance.
Team work is the key for achieving success in any enterprise. For any organization, to achieve its goal, compatibility between peers is vital. In order to provide students an environment for effective learning as team players, management games are conducted as part of the training calendar. It helps students in interacting, communicating and completing the tasks assigned to them more efficiently.
Post conduct of different Management Games de-briefing sessions are conducted to discuss learnings from the activity conducted and their correlation to theory.
In order to gauge different aspects of the personality like learning style, attitude, behavior and perception etc, students are put through Psychometric tests at regular intervals. This is beneficial from the viewpoint of working on minute aspects of a student’s personality which ultimately leads to the development of qualities essential for becoming a success.
These tests also gauge the interest level of students towards a particular management domain enabling us to suggest the right course of action a student must take for career progression.
OUTDOOR MANAGEMENT TRAINING
Nature is one of the best places from where one can learn a lot. Keeping this aspect in mind, Outdoor Management Training programs are meticulously designed by qualified professionals and organized every semester.
Practical application of management theories taught in the class room are assessed by creating management situations during Outdoor Management Training. Rock climbing, trekking, boating, watermanship, etc. are some of the outdoor activities.
Students have been applauded for their skills in trekking and overcoming obstacles at Khadakwasla, Kasarsai Dam, Nilakantheshwar Hill, Rajmachi and multitude of Shivaji’s Forts in the Sahyadri Ranges of Western Maharashtra.
TIE-UPS WITH OTHER ACADEMIC INSTITUTIONS AND ORGANIZATIONS
IIEBM has tie-ups with renowned academic institutions and organizations for students to undertake additional courses / training programs in diverse areas, based on the specialization they plan to opt for. This not only increases their knowledge and skill-sets but also enhances their tradability and value in the corporate world.
In the past students have done courses from IIT – Delhi in Supply Chain Management, Project Management, Production & Operations Management, Six Sigma etc, to name a few. These courses are at an additional cost and students are required to pursue them based on their aptitude and recommendations by the academic in-charge.
