A politically peaceful Bangalore with its pretty gardens and the IT culture would rank among the best locations for study. At 3000 feet above sea level, the pleasant climate brings together cosmopolitan cultures to share in its many wonders. In recent times, the establishment of a number of MNCs with their assembly and manufacturing hubs provides endless opportunities for internships and great careers. The challenge filled ambiance does motivate excellence in performance in order to catch up with global standards. Connected by air to major capitals across the world, the globe is beckoning for you to get on board.
Global Institute of Business Studies with a green 4.5-acre campus in Bannerghatta in South Bangalore figures high in the list of the most awarded and ranked management institutions. Whether it is the learned faculty with live industry experience, the technology inspired study atmosphere and an up to date curriculum at par with leading international universities, GIBS presents a remarkable dream. Well, one needs to imagine the possibilities of the future and work up to it. Everything in this institute motivates achievement.
Beating the competition is certainly high on the agenda with the best brains in the world vying for the highest management designations. Besides the intellectual ability, personality development and soft skills would all matter in the race to the top.
Accreditations by UGC and NAAC, MHRD and ISO, AILA, Parivarthan and Aryawarth reinforce the faith in the prestigious institution that has launched hundreds of careers in elaborate placements in a comparatively young institute. While experience has its wisdom, startups are known for refreshing new ideas at par with the best in the world.
GIBS also offers twin degrees like the MBA combined with PGPM. Many universities and institutes nowadays offer integrated courses like BBA combined with BA or LL.B. It is an advantage to study a single five-year course rather than hop from institution to institution to pursue separate courses.
A beginning to a great business management career could commence with the Corporate BBA. The three-year course would lay a strong foundation of the business world with a background of commerce and marketing principles. Participants hail from a variety of backgrounds and perhaps some have no knowledge of business at all. On the other hand, some students come from remote areas and need some adjustment time. The caring staff makes everybody feel at home during the first few weeks and months. Three years is a long time indeed to spend under a single roof, but so much is waiting to unfold that would create splendid careers in business niches across the world. GIBS alumni already occupy some senior positions and the network is extremely useful to inspire and motivate the present batch of students.
Specializations are crucial subject choices
Besides the common course content that every student learns, the specialized subjects refer to the particular interests. After the course is completed, the graduates would probably concentrate on those fields of specialized study. Among the ten subjects offered are Marketing, Finance, and Human Resource Management. Other subjects deal with International Business, Information Systems, and Tourism & Travel Management. Will it be Healthcare Management, Small Business Management & Entrepreneurship, Retailing & Supply Chain Management or Banking & Insurance?
While Hospitality and Healthcare figure among the highest revenue generators in the industry, finance, HR, and marketing apply to every sector. International Business and Banking & Insurance attract many because of the infinite possibilities of professional development. A worldwide demand exists for proficient business managers who can work in cosmopolitan environments. Adjusting to MNC work environments would go a long way in achieving corporate success.
Placements with MNCs and collaborations with universities abroad
Finally, it is the network of connections established by institutes that matter as it is for individuals! Each year comes to a long list of successful placements of students with MNCs as the last duty of the institute towards the students. That becomes possible because of industry connections and goodwill. The faculty and industry work hand in hand and guest speakers highlight real experiences to enlighten future managers.
Student and teacher exchange programs with universities abroad strengthen the international outlook and refreshing winds are constantly blowing across GIBS. We would like to call the whole world our home and life at GIBS certainly makes it possible.
