India is a country with a lot of patriotic tales shining in its history. We are the one where the first thing that a child learns is to live for his country. The schools have a curriculum to plant patriotism in our children. But if this is true then why are the Indian students not willing to join the armed forces? Why they want to study & settle down in abroad? Why the young ones are more focused in achieving personal goals?

The Indian armed forces are lacking the youth with will & wisdom to protect the honor of the country. What should be done to encourage the youth to work towards national progress & help the country achieve its goals? Providing basic military training to the youth will result in a better and well motivated youth which can serve the country at the time of requirement. The easiest way is to incorporate it in the academic curriculums that will not only teach outdoor survival skills, improve problem solving skills, reduce recidivism but also enhance teamwork and develop leadership skills.

Taking the initiative in this direction, a 7-day undergraduate military training camp was organized by Amity University for students at Amity military college, Manesar. A total of 120 cadets attended the military camp divided into 3 platoons. The cadets were allotted tents and provided with the utensils for meals making them to imbibe the qualities of survival tactics and self dependence. The adventurous journey included rock climbing, parasailing, obstacles, firing at a shooting range of 25 m, rappelling, tracking( day and night), trip to herbal garden and many more that made the training thrilling and exciting. To inculcate the habit of participation in group activities and group discussions activities like tug of war and debate competitions were also organized. The cadets and faculty found themselves drawn into the expedition in a visceral way through various guest lectures. These sessions arose a feeling of patriotism in every heart reminding us of our responsibilities and duty towards our nation. Various fun activities like dog show, movie shows and DJ night kept the environment light and filled students with positive energy.

Such adventure learning programs provide heightened motivation, excitement, community- building, real-world understanding, and learner participation. Teachers and students alike become engaged in learning in a new and impactful way as they follow along with the adventures of the team. They also found themselves engaged with the issues that are raised, and collaborate to craft new ways to contribute to solve issues. Such activities and training camps will not only inculcate an essence of camaraderie and brotherhood amongst the students but will also bring in synergy and make students understand the work ethos.

The programs like National Cadet Corps (NCC) & National Scout & Guide should be practiced at large scale in all the institutions. The academic curriculum should be amended accordingly to include such training camps from the grass root level. This will definitely help in motivating the youth to join the armed forces that are in real need of youth in all the ranks.

Nowadays when the whole world is growing in terms of technology, the academics is also not an exception.

With rapid developments in information technology (IT), most university students demand more use of IT in their education for two main reasons:

(1) it helps the course material be presented in a more comprehensible way;

(2) it gives them familiarity with the high-tech tools they might be expected to use in their future careers after graduation.

Some universities have already started making changes to their curricula and making arrangements to be more inviting to students by introducing new methods of education such as field trips to big companies, and inviting representatives from such companies to give seminars as part of the curricula so that the students are exposed to practical career scenarios. Most of the classes are held in computer labs and the topic of the lecture can be immediately simulated, programmed, or demonstrated on computers. Especially Management studies, which teaches students to work in the business environment.

Management includes several departments finance, Human Resource, Marketing, Information technology etc. And now when everything is becoming computerized nobody wants to work manually, neither company wants their system to be manual. In this scenario the management students have been taught to use Information technology as a base to work in any organization and in any department of it.

Several companies use Oracle as a base for keeping their databases intact, employee needs to insert, update and track their information through these database software's. Therefore students have been taught in their management course the importance of databases, how to use it and how to manage data through these database software's. Finance, Marketing, Economics student's studies different calculation in SPSS, MS Excel etc. HR and other subject's students learn how to keep data in tables and how to retrieve it efficiently.

As in corporate the employees need to give presentation in front of their superiors or co-workers, same it has been taught to the management students by using different features of MS-Office to work more efficiently with the numerical as well as with the theoretical data. Using internet has become the crucial part of daily life; no organization can think that they can communicate without internet.

So by giving importance to this factor management colleges creates a need in front of the management students, that they also starts communicating through internet, and automatically they start using it and several other features attached to it. So to remain competitive in the business environment, the teaching pattern itself has been changed now and adopting new features to groom and make students more adaptive in the current scenario.

Power of Social Media – Its Impact on Future Managers! - Gaurav Bagra, Amity Jaipur

Gone are the days when “tweets” were related to birds solely and by writing on somebody's wall or “tagging” may involve you in fight with your neighbors! Nowadays, “pinning”, “tweeting,” “wall posts,“ “tags” and even “likes,” to name just a few are entirely unobjectionable. With the advent of social media, like Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and LinkedIn, has transform the means of communication both at personal as well as professional front.  

Like it or not, with the rise of social media as a new communication tool, nowadays the ability to perform social media activities is a quintessential task that is being highly desirable from the budding managers.

Social media enables a stronger relation at the personal level with your target audience. In comparison to the traditional communication methods i.e. print media and TV social media websites allows future mangers to convey the brand message more conveniently and effectively. However, the most beneficial advantage that these social media websites provide is the two-party conversation and the chance to bring instantaneous reaction on managers' decisions. Subsequently, the highly trackable feature of social media allows managers to promptly make the essential rectifications if required.

In June 2012, the majorly certified National Eligibility Test was conducted by UGC like every year they organize. At the time of results, UGC quietly introduced a new passing criterion instead of the one that was in existence for several attempts. Following an outburst of negative feedback (their Facebook pages had thousands of comments). The revolution that was run by few at social media made many other candidates so aware that they filed a suit against UGC and won the case finally. And the UGC was forced to undo its decision of failing passed candidates. This is just an illustration to show the great power that social media has, and what difference this new communication tool has in making influence over others, regardless of the fact that how big and well-known a brand is.

The new communication tools say blogs, Facebook and Twitter not only allow you making your brand visible to a larger audience much faster and cost-effectively than before. But these are great platforms for getting worthy understanding i.e. where it stands in the mind of your audience. Though not a total substitute for traditional media (TV and print), social media websites facilitate spreading the news speedily which can be constructive as well as destructive. The UGC incident is an ideal case in point.

In this dynamic business environment, each decision of a manager can be evaluated and criticized very easily. Thus, it can be said that knowing social media activities is a “must have” talent in future managers!

Today we all are engaged in large number of conversations through out our daily routine activities. These activities could range from an informal communication to formal presentations, texting or emailing, phones or even the social media. No matter the form, the communication and more specifically the effective communication is an integral and important part of our life. Communication is a complicated activity which involves a balanced mixture several attributes like selection of proper words, keeping proper voice tones and volumes, body language, discussion history, knowledge about audience etc. Communication is considered to be an effective communication when recipient of the message clearly understand the meaning of the message in its true sense and must be able to express the meaning back to the sender of the message. To make communication effective it is usually thought that it must be a long meeting, which is quite not necessary. The prime objective of communication is to achieve understanding. Effective communication allows participants to properly exchange ideas. Successful communication enables people to interact more effectively with others in all areas of their relationships, both professional and personal. By putting good communication skills into use, we can communicate and influence at every level in our business workplace, from support staff to senior executives. Effective communication is an important and integral element of success for any individual as well as for an organization at all the levels. Communication skills are essential in today's working environment, possessing only technical skills is not sufficient enough to succeed. Most of the organization value those employees who can not only find the things but also able to communicate those findings effectively. These are the reasons that most of the MBA education now-a-days focus on communication. Business Communication is one of the leading areas on which management school strives. Similarly candidates should also looks for those B-Schools which not only strives on core subjects but also focuses on the effective communication skill development. Communication skills help to achieve your goals in all aspects of life. There are various ways and practices to improve your communication skill, some basic communication skills to start putting into use immediately to achieve the immediate target. These are as follows:

Dr.

Convey yourself/ Express your thoughts properly

It should be taken care that all the necessary information should not to be omitted and become important parts of the message. Many a times the sender feels some information as irrelevant or oblivious and do not transmit the information as part of message. This selective omission of information may change or dilute the meaning of message. The message should be direct, clear and congruent. Content, Voice, tone and body language all should indicate same meaning of message.

Active Listening

The other major point to be kept in mind and practice is active listening.  Active listening is a major part of Effective communication. Effective communication must include listening skills. Active listening is becoming more difficult in this multitasking world where we are simultaneously engaged in many conversations over various mediums. It appears that the frequency of multitasking is increasing, and that there is no clear standard regarding how or when individuals in business should multitask. This is why it is important for a leader to ensure that his/her message, whether conveyed face-to-face or through text based mediums, is persuasive enough to grab the attention of the leader's audience. The important aspect of active listening is to hear what actually people are saying and mean.

Become Aware of Body Language

It is a known fact that our body language makes up a large component of our message and has huge impact on the meaning of message. The sender should ensure that his non verbal communication and impressions should be in synchronization with his verbal communication.

Always use simple language and statements.  People are usually being loaded with lots of information on daily basis. Simplicity is one of the most powerful and necessary attribute of effective communication. Effective communicator makes the complex thoughts and strategies into simple terms so that everybody for whom the message intended can be understood in real and true sense in which it should be.

Use Unique and Distinct Language and voice tones: It is advisable to use a distinct and unique language. Your values should come through your communication. Most of the people follow you if you are genuine and real. Most of the people respect and follow you're thought if are genuine. Thus it is advisable not to disguise yourself.

Observations are equally important for effective communication: Pause, observation and listen. Effective communication is two-way. Good communicator knows how to ask good questions, and then listen with both their eyes and ears. It's easy to be so focused on getting your message and persuading others.

Thus it is advisable to focus on making your communication effective. In conclusion it is clear that if effective communication is beneficial then poor communication may lead to certain prime losses like inefficiencies, confusions and clashes which finally lead to failures.
