A B-School journey is not primarily constrained within the four walls of a classroom but offers a more holistic approach towards learning. Extracurricular activities, peer involvement, diverse interaction, and innovative approach, combine and come together to play an integral role in building a budding professional. It is crucial to consider that a B-school prepares a student to face the corporate world. In that context, diversifying one’s technical understanding and soft skills becomes important.
Here are some reasons why you should consider joining student clubs at your B-School.
- Peer Involvement
Involvement with like-minded yet diverse sets of peers is one of the significant advantages of engaging in any extracurricular activity. By being a core member of any such club, students can interact and learn multiple new things from their peers.
- Skill Maximization
Besides the opportunity to meet and greet like-minded individuals, one can also learn a lot about the field of their interest. A jazz musician can learn the art of rock music, and a MUN expert can learn a lot about Parliamentary debate. This is possible through active involvement in extracurricular clubs.
- Enhance Communication
By working in a team, one can learn managerial skills and enhance their communication quotient. They can go out of their way to communicate and connect with people from different backgrounds. This helps one in the professional world to a large extent.
- Leadership Skills
Being involved in extracurricular activities helps students organize multiple events and partake and participate in numerous initiatives. This mandates the importance of honing leadership skills among students. One can, of course, carry this ahead in their corporate careers.
- Organizational Skills
Be it organizing annual fests or regular practice sessions, by being an active member of any student club, one hones their organizational skills. This hustling benefits later in life when students enter the corporate world and organize their work.
