Developing Leadership talent and building careers-ISB&M; way
A recent survey by CNN-Money of some of the leading organizations in the world about where do students from the top business schools aspire to launch their careers with and the competencies and traits that these organizations look for when they hire MBA's is revealing. The study finds that 75% of the organizations surveyed indicated that leadership talent, initiative, professionalism in approach to work and problem solving skills are the most desired competencies and they found a high correlation to superior performance.
ISB&M; student have hit middle to senior management position in 5-6 years in companies most wanted by top B school MBA 's globally. Our alumni career performance has put ISB&M; on a high reputation track with industry. Most top companies connect with ISB&M; in terms of guest lectures, summer internships and final recruitment. This has put ISB&M; at the forefront of management education for over a decade.
Nurturing and developing talent is the core competence of ISBM and the MBA programme is designed to develop the competencies that companies look for in students. How should one teach management to a set of people who want to make a career in business organizations? It involves a combination of learning functional, eg. marketing, finance, HR, Supply Chain,and also learning leadership talent.
1. Learning management concepts through case studies
2. Learning by doing
3. Experiential learning
Through all these methods a person can acquire knowledge and competence to perform successfully in a job and build a career.
At ISB&M;, students get a slew of opportunities to learn management skills through participation in various events. This is a form of experiential learning where the individual determines and controls one's own individual development and growth.
Management of various events challenges a student in a variety of situations quite similar to live organizations and helps them learn the following competencies essential for the development of an individual.
Experiential learning is essentially learning through personally determined experience and involvement.
Learning by doing is what we believe in and if we look at the training trends across various industries, it is evident that most organizations have increased expenditure on behavioral training for their employees, at ISB&M;, we recognized this need and we have successfully made our students learn to use opportunities well and grow as a high value talent in any organization that they wish to make a career in.

today the campus witnessed the promotion of a upcoming bollywood movie "Bablu happy hai" going to launch in first week of Feb.
Life at ISB&M;, has been witnessing such events since long and we see that even students are very enthusiastic in participating in such events.
Event pics will be posted in our next posts.
Soon after Coming board on ISB&M; campus, institute helps the students to test their abilities by letting them organize the very second event in their life at ISB&M.;
Annual fest of ISB&M; or rather I say the Anniversary celebration.
How much do we know our other campuses!!
This fest goes in for two days.
And as every event, there are corporates coming in from various companies as judges for the Cultural, Business and out door activities that are held during the fest.
This fest also facilitates better communication between its students of four other campuses, and the competition is also inter campus.
you can see the enthusiasm, energy and spirits of ISBMites in the attached pics..
All these are just the fraction of what Life at ISB&M; is.
Two years!! isn't it quite a long time for any one to spend in one campus?So apart from the regular courses, events, recreation, et al. There are many other things that every one requires in his livelihood.
So the very next question that comes to any ones mind would be, "Is the Institute providing enough facilities to the students so that they can live their life with out having to struggle for basic amenities and requirements"
Infrastructure of ISB&M; is established with the same in-tension "To make students life more easy and smooth going"
Facilities at ISB&M; include:sophisticated class rooms with remote controlled audio visual equipment's, well designed seating arrangements to give every student a clear visibility through out. And comfortable chairs and desks.
Multimedia powered and fully air-conditioned Auditorium with a seating capacity of 700 students.
Fully air - conditioned IT lab with enough computers to facilitate every one. WI-FI and wired LAN connected campus to enable mobility.
Library equipped with more than 12000 books, more than 18 magazines and news papers subscribed, a magazine corner where students can find their interested magazine and enjoy reading it sitting in an air-conditioned library.
Digital library to assist in reaching out to articles, periodicals and publishing's of prominent organisations like HBR, IVEY, Thunderbird, EBSCO et al.
Office space for dedicated student council activities and student cell meetings.
Amphitheater for refreshment and hanging out with friends in campus with great serenity around.
Swimming pool of max depth of 8 feet and minimum depth of 4 feet so that every one, even those who cant swim may avail the benefit of such a exotic privilege.
Basket ball court, indoor Badminton Court, Chess tables, Carom tables, Table Tennis Tables, facility to play cricket and even foot ball, Gym facility with a 24x7 available physical trainer on campus. Yoga center.
Hostel facilities include, 24 hr running hot and cold water, Aqua guard filtered water provided from water coolers placed at every place on campus, different blocks for boys and girls hostels, College mess with a seating capacity of more than 200 students at a time (managed by mess comity made of students) serving three meals a day.Canteen and cafe for snacks and refreshing drinks.

And finally college transportation to be used only in emergency purposes, available round the clock.
Any thing that happens to become the need in near future, management always takes participation and keeps it in top priority to make it available to students as soon as possible.
Attached are few pics of the same facilities.
How easy is the job to decide on the right place to build the campus?
Definitely its different from choosing a place to setup an office or to build a home.
The campus has to be helping the students in relieving the amount of stress they are going to have in their life.
Every management course is designed in a very robust manner. Because what students learn here in two years is going to build the foundation of what they are going to do in their professional life ahead.
There will be many of the contradicting scenarios, Tough situations, Critical cases so on and so-forth they are going to face. And the training programs are facilitators towards those experiences for every student. The institute tries to give every student the experience of every possible situation through its training program.
In single line, "Training has to be rigorous to make them ready to handle any situation".
Training and the amount of stress that builds up in every student, both goes hand in hand.
The location of the campus, located near the foot hills in the outskirts or Pune city, greenery around and inside the campus, the natural beauty, colors of various flowers, their fragrance in the campus. serves as a feast to the eyes of every one around it. Helps to forget the stress and refreshes the mind of every one and finally helps in building "We can do it" attitude towards any thing and every thing.
Attached are the pics of the campus taken all year around, providing the view of campus in every season. may it be summer, winter or monsoon.
