VES Business School, A Place to Learn it All.
As 2020 was struck with the worldwide pandemic and we were placed under lockdown, the ability of colleges to adapt to the sudden change helped students to continue with their education. Our case was no different.
Our lectures commenced on 3rd August 2020 and, we were off to a new journey of growth and development but on a digital platform. We were introduced to google classroom and, google meets for the first time for studies. The majority of us were new to these platforms and, VBS faculties made sure we are comfortable enough with this medium before assigning different tasks associated with our subjects.
Not only were we learning new aspects of management theoretically but also practically. Yes, you read it right, Practically!!!
Even though we were locked in our homes, practical learning was possible with the help of digital events organized by various cells of the PGDM college such as Sarvoday 2020, a Social Entrepreneurship Business Competition organized by General Management and Business Analytics Cell which encouraged us to learn about the feasibility of business’s social impacts and effects. Another competition conducted by the PGDM Operations Department was M.A.D (Mad About Design), a facility design competition that helped us understand the functionality of different manufacturing units as well as the application of various concepts such as closeness rating, positioning, etc. of operations management.
The cells not only encourage us to participate in competitions but also provided us the opportunities to organize different events such as Webinars, National level competitions such as InspirioBiz, Biz-Nemesis, Varnan, different workshops, etc. These opportunities helped in developing our managerial skills furthermore.
When you look at the academics, practical subjects such as Python,
R-programming, Simulation is taught in a way that it can be enjoyed, even being at home. This environment of learning contributes to inclination towards more practical subjects which again helps to build a strong skillset of any student.
VES Business School along with grooming the students for their corporate life via practical and theoretical learning also encourages implementing these learnings in various inter-college competitions spread across various domains such as case-study competitions, Stock Trading simulations, Business Pitching competitions, etc. I participated in almost 40 different competitions and also, won a few of them like Markwiz, a marketing case study competition, Marksman, a blog writing competition, etc. No matter how many competitions we won, there was always something we gained that is Experience, one of the most valuable assets an individual can have for their life.
We are grateful to be around such dynamic faculties and mentors whose efforts and hard work helped us learn and grow even in the most challenging time of our lives.
