Life @ tiss (straight from our hearts)

Hey folks , here you have a thread to cater to all your queries about the life at TISS as HRM & LR students . you can shoot a variety of queries like: 1\. The hostel accomodation availability and how to go about it. 2\. The lovely cam...

*************** It's a magical world OL' buddy, let's go exploring*************

"To travel is better than to arrive". I firmly believed that the journey is always better than the destination until I arrived at TISS. I could not help but be amazed by the beautiful lush green campus and the aura it creates. In addition to the campus and other USPs of the institutes (Placements, Fieldwork, diversity et cetera), there are certain things which have made the last two months worth living for me in TISS.

Foundation Course: The foundation course is a unique feature of the curriculum at TISS. The objective of this course is to make students aware of nitty-gritty of the society, culture and the nation. One leaves the classroom with deep insights on caste, gender, religion etc in India which helps imbibe social sensitivity in one's heart. The course also provides a platform to interact with students of over 15 other courses which expands our knowledge about topics ranging from Criminology and Justice to Disaster Management.

Freedom and quest for knowledge: The appetite for knowledge does not get restricted to our course. A student gets an opportunity to attend events/lectures on contemporary national, international and social topics by the who's who of the respective fields. Student initiatives like theatre, plays and discussions are the other medium of spreading knowledge of society.

People: What makes TISS a great institute is its people. Be it the esteemed faculties who in spite of their tight schedule are always willing to help us and address our doubts irrespective of however silly the doubt might be, or the non teaching staffs who work day in and day out to ensure we get the best of the infrastructure, and the students themselves- the bright brains of the country who are always happy to join you for a cup of tea and indulge in discussions on any topic under the sky. Despite the diversity among the students, everyone shares solidarity, the solidarity of being a TISSian.

To sum it up, the last two months have been an amazing journey and for the coming days in TISS, in the words of Calvin, I say to myself "It's a magical world OL' buddy, let's go exploring".

Sharing the TISS Experience !!!!

Aparna Vittal Dhas, MA in HRM & LR , 2014-2016

When I heard "We have zero tolerance for any discrimination based on sex, caste, religion, region, language, sexual orientation, or on any other basis whatsoever," for the fifth time in two days, I thought they were overdoing it. These were the standard things that every institute claimed, I thought. However, it didn't take me too long to understand how seriously TISS meant it. TISS has committees that investigated sexual harassment, ensured social protection, and facilitated the functioning of the dining hall, and cyber affairs. Each of these committees / cells has student representation besides having experts from the respective fields. In fact, a vibrant, newly-elected student union that was elected through a democratic election process, just swore in earlier this week. Welcome to the world of TISS. MA in HRM & LR from TISS is perhaps one of the most unique experiences one can ever hope to sign up for. Where else can you hope to spend your day in lovely classrooms understanding the nuances of industrial relations, and spend your evenings attending a screening of a documentary about Adivasis in India? Which other management course offers you the opportunity to spend two days of your week working on the field, amassing practical knowledge, and the rest of the week goes into understanding the theory behind it? If you aspire for all round development, TISS promises to flavour every chai that you consume in the cosy canteen with intriguing conversations with people from the most diverse walks of life. If you're curious, TISS assures you of knowledgeable faculty who can nurture you, and can provide excellent infrastructure to support your research. If you're enterprising, TISS guarantees to provide you ample space to innovate and engage with causes that engross you. And well, if you're ambitious, TISS is a brand in itself. Life in TISS is a lesson in itself. TISS has a profound impact on the way you perceive the world around you. This distinguished Deemed University stirs you into defining your own personality better, and makes you comfortable with being... just you.

*********************New Beginnings @ TISS *************                                                                                          

This is what Amit Singh , HRM & LR, 2014-2016  has to say about this journey in TISS in the first month ....                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

To be frank, for me, TISS is not a B-School, it's much more than that, it's a feeling, it's a notion, which one can only realize by being here. It's a melting pot of cultures, traditions and ways of life. TISS is one of the few schools across INDIA which develops students into professionally competent and socially sensitive management graduates at the same time.

Being a part of a premier engineering institute in the past, it was a very difficult decision for me to join TISS, but now I realise I took a great call by joining TISS. For me it's like transition from the BEST of technical school to the BEST of social school i.e. "TISS".

 Now I will talk about TISS edge, which has given the impetus to quench my thirst and aspirations: Why TISS? And I got so many reasons to share: 1) Small batch size; "it gives focused attention and makes personal learning highly effective"2) Field-work learning; concurrent placement, corporate-block-placement and NGO-block placement- provides an opportunity to reflect, apply and integrate acquired skills to work stations in organizations.3) Exposure: "Located in the heart of commercial capital."4) Brand: "NAAC rating of 3.88/4, highest among all universities in India. 5) Good-Investment: Return on human capital is always best, TISS is among the best. 6) Connection: Huge alumni base and network.7) Self-Growth: It's always better to acquire new skill sets and to make you more productive in whatever you do. Research based learning, a large number of elective courses to choose from and faculty interaction align with an open door policy championed the cause of learning and growth.

"I am indebted to my father for living" but to my INSTITUTE for living well"

For me, to be part of TISS provides buckets of knowledge and inspiration from eminent teaching faculties and young leaders of change. It gives the feel of celebration of youth and multiculturalism, networking with likeminded people, sharing of thoughts, ideas and motivations. What could be the better place than TISS, to learn, explore and discover along with highly motivated youth from very diverse backgrounds who share a common passion for positive change in the world.

Hi Amit Singh, even I am pursuing B.Tech. and I have always aspired to do social service. I have worked with National Service Scheme in my college too. Also, I have taken great interest in Human relations. But if they ask me" what an engineer can do for our college? As an engineer, you will look for technical fields and not the HRM." What can be the answer to this very obvious question?

What kind of profile does TISS look for MA HRM course? Being an engineer, will it be a drawback for me to apply to TISS? In what  direction should I work so that I can develop a profile matching TISS standards?

@Mon07 : TISS MA HRM course has students from varied educational backgrounds- Freshers/Work-ex, Engg/Doctors/BA courses .. any course u name it ... Tiss is known for its diversity factor. Your Interest in HR , Basic Understanding of HR,Why you want to pursue it and how TISS would help in this - some of these questions would help you have clarity in thought which is what TISS looks for. There is no specific profile format for same. 

Countdown begins for one more official visit to the campusmg

It was fun visiting the campus for summers.. met my classmates Manoj Chaudary, Anuradha who also came for summers...

Infact me and manoj planned to travel together to campus ( it would have been a sight with representatives from 2 companies coming together for placements) except in the last moment their HR head planned to come along which had played spoilers with our plan...Nevertheless happy the way summers went this year and hope the same show repeats in finals , which is the latest reason for my visit to campus now

Though my time in the campus had officially ended , the charm of the campus always pulls u and u always look for a reason to visit the place once again and spend some more time.....But its no longer the same place ....The people has changed ..its an all together new batch who are making the most of campus life ....Though they may not realise now, every single day spent in the campus is so beautiful and with out a second thought many alums would trade their current positions to be at day 1 of college again

Any how , now I have an official reason to visit the campus ...its summers time and luck by chance , I am coming to India just a few days ahead of summers and CG visiting the campus for first time in years for summers ....it can't get better ...so its all together a different feeling to visit the campus , now on the other side of the table on which we arranged snacks and waterbottles not long ago for recruiters

So Junis, brace ur self ....if there are days in ur campus life at TISS, summers will definitely stand out

Hope to see firecrackers go up on day 1

Feel immensely blessed to be a part of the Mecca of HR -- The Tata Institute of Social Sciences, HRM & LR Batch of 2013-15. This was one helluva ride! But I am glad it has all come to a beautiful end...and even a new beginning!
Seniors, can you please tell me whether the summer placement is in addition to the fieldwork, or we just have a summer internship at the end of the second semester? If it is the former, does that mean, we will be working in 5 (4 fieldwork + 1 Summers) companies, before our final placement?

With today's last formal class room session , two years journey in TISS almost came to an end . Almost because we are yet to submit our master's thesis , write a couple of exams and submit some assignments .....
exactly 2 years back , either on march 8th or 9th , i have given my interview at TISS and life changed quite dramatically after that

cannot say what TISS had given me in the short span of 2 years . From career perspective its much more than what i had done for 24 years of my life time before joining TISS

Interviews for the batch of 2013-15 had started from today , which signifies that we need to pack our bags and leave the campus soon ..not a lovely thought

But as every good thing comes to an end , so does our stay in TISS ....

But i would leave from this place equipped with knowledge, confidence and ofcourse credibility which comes from my degree from TISS .......

I will be joining CROMPTON GREAVES as Deputy Manager - HR (quite a fancy title to boast of ) and quite excited to get my hands dirty in the sector and the field i am romancing for the last 2 years ... ( An IR role in a manufacturing company)

Proud to be a Tissian for life time

Hi All...

I have gone through most of the posts on this thread and it has helped me a lot to imagine a picture of life at TISS
But most of this thread's part is focused on HR life at TISS
As Im interested to know about life for Social Entrepreneurship people at TISS, request you to please ask your SE friends to join this thread and enlighten us.

Thanks!

Hii I am in the final year of my engineering and have passion for HR and targeting TISS next year. I want to know the job profiles after placements that people get at TISS. Thanx in advance.
@Anchun

@gdm4u87

I don't see any update from dev study or social e'ship students in this thread.So both these courses and opportunities after completion of course is still mysterious to me.can you please share contact details of students from these courses?

Thanks.

Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can't lose.

Hi,

It's been trying times! They were(and are) the best of times and the worst of times!!

Report after report is coming about as to we non-engineers seem to be an unwanted lot in B schools!!

Any tips on the cut off? Did very well in the test. Got 87 percentile at XAT, IRMA- 86 , CAT was never my cup of tea or coffee( I don't drink either- am a milk sop).

Just praying to see the hallowed portals of TISS!!!!!!!!!!!
