Outbound Activities at ECO Park conducted by Unitedworld School of Business ( Kolkata campus) on 8th January, 2014

A group of 45 students, of Unitedworld School of Business - Kolkata, were introduced to outbound activity based learning on the 8th of January, 2014. The group was taken to ECO Park, a sprawling park covering over 3 square kilometers with a very large water body, located at Rajarhat close to the airport.

A faculty team guided by Prof. Ayaz A Shafi (specializing in Experiential Training) and supported by Prof. Meenakshi Khemka (HR and OB), Prof. Sandeep Bhogal (Entrepreneurship and Economics) and Prof. Mahua Dutta (Communication & Branding)conducted activities o bring out issues related to Leadership, Teamwork, Motivation and Communication.

“Minefield”, a popular experiential training activity, was modified and adapted to suit the location. Four teams were formed and each team had to identify pairs – one guide and a blind folded walker – The task for the guide was to take the blind folded walker through the minefield without any casualty . In case either the walker or guide stepped onto any of the “mines” the pair had to go back and start all over again. It was a very exciting exercise and the joys and frustrations were demonstrated in equal measure. More importantly during the de-brief critical issues pertaining to Leadership, Teamwork, Communication came out very strongly and were discussed accordingly.

The second activity “The Blind Striker” (developed by Prof. Shafi) was very high on energy and brought about a very high degree of involvement from the students. The task entailed breaking the team into two groups – a Strategy Group and an Execution Group. The task was to use 5 team members only to get a tennis ball into a basket, placed on uneven surface, and keep it there. The strategy team was devise the strategy and could not talk or participate during the activity. Rules were as follows. The blindfolded Striker was to stand a foot away from the basket, collect the ball from other team members 3 of whom were immobile and had fixed location and only one of them could move about. The ball had to pass through the hands of all 5 before it could be put into the basket. No physical contact between the players was allowed. Elements of teamwork and communication emerged very strongly and the discussion post the activity was very engaging. The de-brief conducted by Prof. Shafi was used effectively to drive home the key points.

Gender issues in Corporate Decision Making

A lady boss or Boss should always be a man? Perhaps a question we all might keep thinking but cannot answer. On 13th January, UWSB Kolkata had Chinmoy Ghosh, PhD, on campus for a guest lecture speaking on this interesting issue. Dr. Ghosh has done his B. Sc. In Physics from Presidency College, PGDM from IIM Calcutta, and Ph.D. from Penn State University. He is currently the head of the Department of Finance at the School of Business, University of Connecticut. He has over fifty published articles in several renowned journals. He has presented several research paers at conferences in USA, Canada, Europe, Australia, South America and Asia. He is a renowned corporate consultant as well.

He spoke on Impact of Corporate Decisions- a study on Gender Issues. He elaborated on how decisions making differs in business with change in gender of the CEO. In other words he spoke on the variances of decisions taken by male and female CEOs. He also explained its impact on the Corporate Growth and valuation. He mentioned some findings from the research like female CEOs are slow to react and are risk averse. They tend to shy away from mergers and acquisitions. The result is slow growth but overall improvement in performance over time and share values. On the other hand male CEOs tend to be risk prone.It was really an interesting session and we thoroughly enjoyed this discussion.

Along with studying various strategies and tools of management, it is also the responsibility of the students to build social awareness and raise voice against the social issues. At Kolkata the second year students under the guidance Dr. Mahua Datta, organized an exhibition on 14th November, Childrens' Day, where they displayed various tools they have crafted themselves to promote against the social evils. The issues like smoking, dowry, child labour, women abuse etc were vehemently opposed through various hand-made posters and 3 D models. Students explained their projects to every faculty member who took great enthusiasm in going through their work. Students proudly presented their projects, explaining why they think these issues are important to be discussed and most importantly, how can they be handled. Some hand-made tools were pretty impressive, where old CDs, Jute backs, used cigarette packets; used cold drinks bottles were beautifully used. Overall, it was a day beyond classroom, where students took the initiative of educating others on social issues. 😃 😃

Dil to Bachcha hai ji...The Debate Competition 30th October, 2013

Unitedworld School of Business Kolkata witnessed a very interesting war of opinion on the topic - AGE IS JUST A NUMBER. Under the guidance of Prof. Ayaz Ahmad Shafi, students organised and participated in a debate on the importance and impact of age in the life of a person. Some argued for the motion and opined that age is truly just a number otherwise how could some great people have had great achievements even at ages of 70 and above. Age is what you think it to be. On the other hand there was a group against the motion who said that you cannot deny the age as that has an impact on your physical abilities. Even though your heart is young, you cannot deny the age restrictions. Some students were witty enough to bring in examples of the faculty members as part of their content for debate. The debate took an interesting turn when after the students, Faculty members took on the stage. Prof. Dipak Majumdar spoke for the motion and said that as per some research work in Harvard, technology will enable the beginning of a new civilisations of bio-genetic creatures which will not be humans but for doing the same all organs can be transplanted except the brain which needs to be cloned. In other words he said that at least at that time age will no longer be a matter of concern as because humans will have become machines by then, with chips implanted in their body. Dr. Mahua Datta debated against the same. She opined that Age can be looked at from two perspective Physiological and emotional. We do not have a control on our physiological aging and we have to accept our own biological growth and depreciation along with age. Even the emotional age is beyond our control as we all are governed by sociological, cultural, political and organisational factors in realm of which we operate. Hence what our heart wishes can always not be fulfilled as we are social animals. So inspite of all our wishes to stay young and do what we want, till date we have not been able to defy our age.
