“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” —Maimonides
We at VBS believe in enabling our students with the knowledge, skills and attitude to understand the world problems, analyse them and solve them. And that starts the very first day with PARICHAY-our outbound experiential learning program. As Malcolm Forbes said “Education’s purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one”. We at VBS at the very start of the 2-year program take our students “out in the open” to experience the foundation of management with an open mind. Students learn to communicate with each other, solve problems and build healthy relationships. It gives them the space to explore, discover and think freely, thus reducing barriers to communication.
The students with their faculty get introduced to each other through energetic ice breaking activities. This lays the foundation for trust and camaraderie which is an essential element of teamwork. Through various outdoor activities and games, they recognize the essentials of management of Planning, Organizing, Staffing, Coordinating, Budgeting etc. Through problem solving activities students are able to build their cognitive skills, creativity and recognizing innovation as an effective tool to achieve objectives. Through simulations students are able to recognize their behavioural tendencies, biases and attitudes. The program gives an opportunity to students to find their strengths and their interests which can be further developed during the course of 2-year program.
We at VBS believe that “Learning is not attained by chance; it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.” (Abigail Adams) and works towards it.
