A collaboration between universities and industries is critical for skills development (education and training), the generation, acquisition and adoption of knowledge (Innovation and Technology transfer), and the promotion of entrepreneurship (start-ups and spin-offs). The collaboration between industry and the academic world has always been an important but complex topic.

Due to the rapid evolution of the business environment and the vast transformations through the academic realm, the subject is now hotter than it has been. The main benefits of companies of this cooperation are the access to the latest research results and innovative new methodologies. It is a mutual approach- the companies offer business insights and the students contribute proven methodology and expertise. It is a win-win situation for both the university and industry.

At Amity University, Mumbai, we strongly believe in making our students industry ready. With so much of competition around, it is extremely important that the students are able to align their degree with the industry requirement. It is of utmost importance that the students equip themselves with skill sets that give a value-add to their qualification and hence make them competent in the workplace. At Amity University, Mumbai we are focusing on the Industry-Academia interaction to make our student's skill sets industry relevant. We constantly invite industry stalwarts to our campus for interacting with our students and share their experiences and industry knowledge with them. At the same time, we also organize industrial visits and educational tours, which help in molding the students, giving them a focus, and offer them a sneak peek into high-tech corporate corridors and practical lessons in managerial skills. To make students' industry ready, a 360-degree approach is required. We at Amity University, Mumbai look at it through an inclusive approach where we have made industrial training, internships as part of the curriculum.

Apart from this we also partner with corporate national events in various domains. We were the partners of FICCI Frames. Frames is a 3 day global convention covering the entire gamut of Media and Entertainment like Films, Broadcast, Digital Entertainment, Animation, Gaming, Visual Effects etc. The event witnesses the who's who of the Media and Entertainment industry and has delegates from India and abroad. The event was spread across 3 days with discussions happening to various topics pertaining to the media industry. 51 students from Amity University, Mumbai participated in the event. The students did a brilliant job of networking with the industry big wigs, getting them to the Amity Lounge and interviewing them. They had prepared industry specific speakers, relevant questions, which impressed the interviewees and they were happy to spend time for our students and share their experiences. Some of the interviews our students took prominent personalities include the likes of Mr. Siddhartha Roy Kapoor, Mr. Uday Shankar, Mr. Prahlad Kakkar, Mr. Ramesh Sippy, Mr. Subhash Ghai, Mr. Ketan Mehta, Mr. Bhaskar Das, and Ms. Meghna Gulzar etc.

Amity students also successfully executed the "Frame Your Idea" concept during the FICCI Frames 2016. It is a platform to connect ideas, story or script owners with the content producers, commissioners and studios. Frame your idea, has in attendance the top studios, broadcasters, producers who had their content teams looking for the next big idea they would want to grab, develop and put it out there for everyone to watch. We have also invited notable people from the film industry like Guneet Monga (CEO- Anurag Kashyap Films and Founder- Sikhya Entertainment) and Mr. Aditya Shastri (Head-B4U World) to our campus where they interacted with our students, shared their experience and journey, and guided aspiring students.

We also participate regularly in events like the IIMUN (Indian International Model United Nations) which is a tool that equips students to grasp the gremlins of the local, national and international ecosystem of which they will be the leaders in their own capacities. A forum receives a participation from schools, managements, academicians, parents and most importantly students from across the globe.

Amity University, Mumbai also participated in events like "The Edutainment Show" for 2 consecutive years. It is a one-stop platform for information, education, entertainment and more importantly media convergence. It had a pool of celebrities, who have accomplished the nuances of media, design and communication industry such as Subhash Ghai, Prahlad Kakkar, Roshan Abbas, Archana Kochhar, Dilip Chenoy and many other experts, who gave students a broadened outlook towards career possibilities in media, communication and design. It also had panel discussions covering a wide range of themes- from Fashion Designing to Product Designing, Filmmaking to Corporate Communication and Brand Communication to Radio Programming.

Apart from collaborating with national level events, we organize regular industry visits for our students and invite corporate honchos to our campus to interact with them. The idea is to make our students ready to face the industry, and equip them with the right mix of text book learning and first hand experience.

1. How has been your journey in academic Industry?

This question is very close to my heart. Because I think being a teacher first of all is a privilege which not everyone has. It's like an honour bestowed on you by God directly, everyone can't become a teacher and if everyone becomes a teacher, they can't become an excellent deliverer. Therefore, we have the privilege of dealing with the future of the country, the students, and we get the opportunity to transform them, show them the direction of their life, of their career and that makes this profession  very close to my heart and I feel very much honoured being part of the education industry. If every teacher understands this point, no one can stop the student's progress, growth and development. Every teacher in its own way is contributing towards nation building by orienting the students into right direction, it is in the hands of the teacher that they motivate students to have big dreams in their life, aspire for big ambitions that ultimately contribute to the whole nation.

2. How many students enrol for course every year?

We enrol approximately 240 students each year.

3. What about the recent placement trends in GLBajaj Institute of Management & Research

It is a pleasure to share that since inception GLBIMR is keeping a track record of 100% Placements of PGDM Batches. This year various reputed companies visited the campus for placements from various sectors like FMCG, Retail, Banking & Finance, Hospitality service sector and many more and placement was achieved 6 months before the completion of the course

4. There are so many colleges in Greater Noida, How do you manage to stay ahead of them?

We would like and try our best to see GL Bajaj amongst the best institutes in North India in the coming 10 years after elite institutions like IIM, MDI, IMT Ghaziabad, FMS. We have kept these institutions as our benchmarks, so that we can extract best practices form these institutions and can implement them and do a better job. So we're already on the road of achieving excellence. For example -  we have already collaborated with the global faculty members for the current academic session in which faculty from France, Dr Alain Boge, is going to come to India from 5th September onwards, he'll be taking International Business, a 30 hours module for our students of first years. Similarly we have roped in Director of Morgan Franklin Consulting (Washington D.C. USA), Mr. Ashish Patel, who has been former VP of Bank of America, to take up the subject of Strategic Management, again in the month of September. They'll be taking full 30 hours module of the subject with us. We have given these two subjects to them because these two subjects are very crucial for the foundation of the students.

We have recently signed a MoU with Mersion under which the students will get an opportunity to study abroad during their summer break in universities like University of California, Imperial College, London etc. Also, we've tied up with faculty members from NITs, IITs, who will be taking up full 30 hours module of different subjects. Therefore, we're doing every possible thing to give our students best of the management knowledge from around the industry . These efforts keep us ahead of other Institutes.

5. What are the short term goals of GL Bajaj Institute of Management & Research? Have there been any challenges in fulfilling these goals?

GLBIMR, Greater Noida in its continuous endeavour to upgrade its benchmarks, as a short term goal we are keen on recruiting Faculty and Non-Teaching Staff in various positions from Pan India. We're trying to identify good people from the market, the experienced people who have proven track record in research, consultancy, conducting MDPs, and have their own flair which is research oriented. That is what is really required and our focus is surely on the faculty members who are giving very different sort of innovative pedagogy. In continuation with this we have recently added Dr. Kirti Dutta as Dean to G. L. Bajaj Family. She has an experience of twenty three years in industry and academia and has a proven record in research and has published text-books with Oxford University Press. Our constant focus is on building GLBIMR brand by upgrading infrastructural facilities. Improving infrastructure will subsequently contribute towards distinguishing GLBIMR as state of the art campus and we plan to add two new ultramodern auditoriums in coming years. 

6. Any message to B-school aspirants?

 I will urge all B-School aspirants to always remember 3P's which I have strongly relied upon These are- Pride, Power of Dreams and Perseverance. To scale new heights in your career, you need to have pride in your roots, family, society and above all your country. Dreaming big is essential to grow and spread your wings higher. I have been fortunate that I got opportunity to listen to great statesman Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam thrice. In one of such occasions, I got opportunity to ask him the question, that how to motivate youngsters of today? To which, he replied - "Small Ambition is a Crime" and added that teachers of our country have the responsibility to make students to dream big. There is a huge power in dreaming big. Realize that!! And finally, third P, Perseverance must become a habit, as without persistent efforts nothing is achievable. We need to ignite that passion and refuel it again and again till all our dreams are not fulfilled.

The 2-year flagship program of GLBIMR, Greater Noida has been designed to enhance the overall learning of the students and cater to the requirements of the industry. The curriculum is revised each year; includes the participation of industry stakeholders, alumni, academicians and experts to bring the course curriculum closer to the industry needs and expectations.

Bridge's unique concept of blended program lured me to join the PGPM-BI course.

Unlike other programs, Bridge is providing one year post graduate program in management certification inclusive of 6 months of industry experience.  I did not want to spend two years studying for an MBA so I was looking for a one year program but having just one year of work experience it was difficult to get admitted to one year program as most of the one year executive programs require 2-5 years of work experience. But here at Bridge I was getting a one year management program wherein they have 6 months of face-to-face learning and then next 6 months would be an Internship in the area of specialization the student opts for.

Also, the faculty at Bridge are the academicians who themselves have worked in the industry for a long time and therefore apart from the conceptual knowledge there is a lot I can learn from their real life experiences which is a great plus point.

At Bridge I can combine my industry expertise with the fundamentals of management I acquire over the first 6 months and also the knowledge I gain over the next 6 months along with my internship. For me this is value for money.

And as it is said that, 'the monetary value of time, or opportunity cost, is more important than the time value of money.'

KIIT SOM Director says "Not surprising that 98% of my students get placed in organization of higher repute"

You earned all your degrees from India's most premier institutions. How do you connect them with KIIT SOM?  

I bring to the table - Experience, Culture and the Ethos of three of India's best schools of higher learning St. Stephen's College Delhi, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore and IIM Ahmedabad. What this does to me with respect to KSOM, and trying to inculcate both in faculty and students some of the best practices that I have experienced and imbibed. For example, one of the cultural aspects of the Institution is happiness index, cheerful face, a sense of pride and ownership, are values close to my heart. I have made efforts and largely succeeded in cultivating the value to some extent. I am extremely proud of KSOM faculty and students who present a very confident culture, knowledgeable and cheerful face to the industry.

98% of students have been placed in reputed organizations. What are we doing right at KIIT SOM?

I really would not be able to point my finger on any one particular aspect. It is a combination of events and activities that result in such a happy outcome.

1) In order to illustrate we have an organized Corporate Relations team headed by a very Senior Executive. The offices are based in PAN India and interact with the corporate across the country very very intensively. The spirit leads to the outcome in terms of placement.

2) We conduct 5 events of national importance


· HR Conclave

· Finance Conclave

· Marketing Conclave


The format of the events necessitates invitee's includes extremely Senior Corporate Executives/ Owner Managers to address our students and faculties such relationships go a long way in desired outcomes.

3) We have an industry education interface organized which deals at a much more technical level and invites industry to exchange views and provide inputs to enable industry ready course curriculum.

All the above along with the facts that our Advisory Board and our Board of Studies comprise of some extremely senior professionals from corporate world and academia makes way for creating an environment wherein students get opportunity to develop and be ready to rub shoulder with the best.

It is therefore, not surprising that 98% of my students get placed in organization of higher repute.

From your rewarding corporate career, would you like to share any of your professional experience which can help motivates the aspirants?

Out of 30 years working for several organizations, 10 was spent in the corner room.

There were obviously challenges of several kinds but let me share with you. Things that have helped me develop myself in terms of understanding social political ethos and developing myself into a much effective leader.

At a particular occasion without mentioning any names let me tell you as the Head of organization, I encountered 20000 people dissatisfied for wants of seeking their requests.

Much against the advice of my subordinates I walked into the mob all alone, heard their grievances, talked to them in plain words, assured them that we resolve their issues and I stood my ground against an almost violent mob.

What did this tell me? This event made me discover my inner strength. I learnt that most people want to be heard and when the top man is available for hearing they are satisfied.

This also teaches me that I must empower my views that they make me redundant. One can grow in an organization; only when one creates replacements for oneself.

What new initiatives will you be leading in the near future?

At KSOM, KIIT we shall now be focusing upon areas and corporate world in a big way.

i) Management Development Program (MDP) :- We shall develop more rigorous more focused MDP (full form) involving the faculties, students and the industry to enhance the quality of teaching, the motivation of faculties and students and to create a healthy ground for even more strong corporate relationships.

ii) We will create much stronger research orientation at the faculty level which will trigger down to the few mentors therefore participation in generation of new knowledge.

iii) I wish to also formulize something that we started that is Corporate Mentorship. What this entails is involving senior personnel from corporate world to mentor 10-15 students each.

We found this to be highly successful by way of students actually adopting these faculties "Corporate Mentors" as their guides' outsides the campus.

Do you have any advice for prospective students applying for KIIT SOM PGDM Programs?

Some young students make the mistake of choosing schools with a view of getting placements. They consider the placement of the institution as the only criteria for selection.

My advice is if you are looking for an average and above average placement please do not come to KSOM. You should treat placement or rather good placement as the consequential outcome of your learning.

You are most welcome for the selection from KSOM, if you are willing to play hard, learn and develop yourself into an individual capable of lifelong employability.

- Prof. (Dr.) Anil Bajpai, Director

This is worth reading..motivational as well as good for English comprehension..:) ....... .... Two targets with a bow........ Dailogue Between Ego and Spirit - Ignited Minds I recently re-read Dr. Kalam's "Ignited Minds" - every page is so full of inspiration, experience...must read for every Indian especially youth. Dr. Kalam ends the book with an excellent story summarizing his thoughts. The story is titled "Dailogue between Ego and Spirit" and here it goes:                         EPILOGUE “I was thinking what can summarize the book aptly…I recall reading a story on internet about a conversation between two babies…Ego and Spirit…while in womb. Spirit says to Ego, ‘I know you are going to find this hard to accept, but I believe there is life after birth.’ Ego responds, ‘Don’t be foolish. Look around you. This is all there is. Why must you always be thinking about something beyond this reality? Accept your lot in life.’ Spirit quietens down for a while, but not for long. ‘Ego, now don’t get angry, but I also believe that there is a Mother. A Mother! Ego laughs. How can you say that? You’ve never seen a Mother, you don’t know what Mother is.Why can’t you accept that this is all there is? You are here alone with me. This is your reality. ‘Ego’, Spirit begs, please listen.What about those constant pressures we both feel, those movements that make us so uncomfortable sometimes, the feeling that we are being squeezed in as we grow? I think we shall soon have a new life, that we shall see light.’ Spirit tries not to bother Ego again but cannot resist one last try. ‘Ego,’ she says, ‘I will not bother you again. But I do believe that after all this discomfort not only shall we see light but also experience the bliss of meeting Mother. Ego’s reply is ofcourse, that Spirit is truly mad. What I want to tell the people of my country through this book is that they must never be content with that which has been presented to them……" - Dr. Kalam.

As the only offshore presence of Italy's prominent Universita Bocconi, MISB Bocconi offers its students access to all of the benefits of a top b-school education. There's no denying that the Bocconi name holds weight with today's employers; as part of this legacy, MISB students reap the inherent benefits.

A Network of Business Leaders

Our small, tight-knit classes mean grads walk away with personal and professional connections which will last a lifetime. But these connections aren't limited to fellow classmates. MISB Bocconi's distinguished faculty members are available, accessible and eager to interact with students. Community-based projects and internships further enrich the connections made on and off campus. The result? Premier networking opportunities.

In an era where the world is smaller than before due to the breakdown of conventional geographical borders, these associations can be leveraged into an inside edge on the job market. Factor in our premier Mumbai location, and the opportunities grow even more profound.

A Truly International Education

While all b-schools are compelled to tout their credentials as international environments, MISB Bocconi truly delivers on this promise. Not only are we home to a diverse community of students and faculty members, but students also participate in international exchange - both through our popular Milan semester as well as optional summer campus exchange programs.

The result? Graduates enter the workforce with the truly international perspective sought after by companies looking for traction within India's booming economy as well as on the world stage.

Through all of this, we remain committed to ensuring that all students have access to the knowledge and training they need to maximize their job searches. Our Career Development Services offer extensive assistance with everything from resume writing to mock interviews to personal orientation labs aimed at helping students develop useful insights into their own unique strengths and aptitudes.

Together, these resources ensure that each MISB Bocconi student is optimally positioned for peak success.
