MBA - A Step Towards Transformation And Success
Posted: Sep 22, 2020
MBA is possibly the most popular professional course in India with thousands applying for it every year, but few making it to the college of their dreams. However, the vast scope of this degree doesn’t stop the students from trying their luck every year. Management education in India is a possible dream if you prove yourself in any one of the major competitive examinations, as banks in India are more than willing and are ready with student-friendly loan schemes for MBA students.
The increasing number of colleges in metro cities is making it easier for students to get into one of the colleges instead of trying, again and again, every year. There are many top-notch MBA colleges in Kolkata, Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune, Delhi and Chennai that take in students every year for specialized programs. The best part is that in an economy like India which is still growing and holds vast potential for future growth, the demand for managers; and indirectly, an MBA, is not slowing down anytime soon. In fact, the demand will only increase with time.
However, it must be noted that a large number of people still lack a comprehensive understanding of an MBA and don’t understand the promise it holds for them due to their preconceived notions.Only if students were to fully know all the benefits of doing an MBA, would they even make an effort of attempting it in the first place. An MBA is not just a job fetching academic courses, the lessons of which you forget after a while. An MBA program follows a practical pedagogy where students are exposed to situations similar to what they would be facing in the corporate world and are taught the skills to deal with such situations. The lessons learnt in an MBA classroom are tools that you can use for your entire lives. The vibrant and diverse crowd, which consists of students from different academic backgrounds and different cultural setups, enriches the experience even further and adds quality to the two years of your life at the MBA campus.
For individuals that have lived in their cocoon for a large portion of their life, this comes as a great opportunity to observe people with different mindsets and grow out of their comfort zones, to discover the best versions of themselves.
Another great aspect of opting for an MBA course from the best MBA colleges in Kolkata, Mumbai or Hyderabad is that you get to meet and learn from your potential future employers and colleagues, which helps you to put your best foot forward, once you begin your career in the corporate world. An MBA is not just for students, it’s also for people who have gained considerable work experience and are looking to get back into the classroom, in order to further propagate their careers in the right direction. They can choose to do this either through a regular MBA program where they give two years of their life and undergo training with their relatively lesser experienced, though equally deserving counterparts, or not take a break from their careers and opt for an executive MBA where they have to dedicate a certain number of hours daily to receive the same degree.
India has come a long way with regards to industrial development and so the need for managers has also skyrocketed over the years. Needless to say, the number of B schools keeps increasing with each passing, further increasing opportunities for the youth. Top management colleges like IIMs, XLRI, BIBS and IIFT still remain on top of students’ wish list. However, today the country boasts of management institutions that are providing quality education and producing bright management students standing shoulder to shoulder with students of these top institutes.
Located in East India, Bengal Institute of Business Studies is one such institute. Popularly known as BIBS, this college was established in 2008 in Kolkata, and since then, has emerged as one of the most recognized management institutions in East India. Located in the cosmopolitan environment of Kolkata, it hosts students from all over the country, especially from the Eastern and North-Eastern States.BIBS offers postgraduate management programmes in Business Management, Integrated Business Management, Digital Marketing, Financial Management and Banking, and Executive Management. The MBA offered by the college is affiliated to Vidyasagar University. BIBS, being the best MBA college in Kolkata after IIM(C), follows a fast speed approach where students are grilled in the first year with intense classroom sessions and weekly corporate interactions. The next year they are ready for their internships, which can go for as long as 6 months.
The back-to-back competitions like Theme Day, City Scan, Start- challenge, A2A, Phoenix, 4Ps and especially Brand Wars among several others, ensure that students always have something to look up to keep their competitive spirit alive. BIBS also has exciting student organizations such as the Sports Club, Media Club, the Rotaract Club, Fine Arts Club, Taste and Tour Club, and Bikers club among several others.
BIBS has always believed in keeping up with the times, and so there are new changes to the curriculum and the list of activities every single year. For its 2020, BIBS didn’t waste any time and began its session on time through online mode. In fact, the competitions have been revamped to suit the online mood so that students don’t have to miss out on even one of the aspects of the BIBS Learning Experience.
