W.B. Yeats had rightly said, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” VBS strives to ignite a spark in each student through various innovative approaches and alternative learning methods. This has helped us create a learning environment that leads to success and shape students into better individuals.
International Immersion at VBS
VBS truly believes in providing a global outlook to business leaders of tomorrow who are required to work in an interconnected world. Every admitted student will get an opportunity to visit a foreign country as part of the program (with no additional cost to the student). It includes visit to companies abroad, cultural exchange, visit to tourist places in that country and of course learning with lots of fun.
This is a meticulously crafted program designed to cultivate global business skills in our students. This program offers many benefits for VBS students, equipping them with the skills and perspectives necessary to thrive in today's business world. Students will gain a comprehensive understanding of the overarching business landscape and the intricacies of the global economy.
This program provides students with the opportunity to develop global business acumen, enhance cross-cultural communication skills, gain a global perspective and develop adaptability and flexibility. Students get a unique and transformative learning experience that prepares them for success in the global business world.
Global Trends, International View
Global trends in technology and international issues are the key topics that we address every day. We have incorporated specialization like Data Analytics in our curriculum. These subjects allow students to focus on matters that are relevant in today's business world. In the last few years, we have organized various international conferences and seminars with distinguished speakers from India and abroad presenting their views on various global issues and technology related topics. These events have helped students improve their understanding of various global topics.
Student Exchange Program
At VBS, we want students to understand the dynamics of business management at the global level. To facilitate this, we have signed MoU with various elite international institutes - Technical University of Cartagena, Zagreb School of Economics and Management, CSIM College of Business at Delaware State University, University of Highlands and Islands, Lincoln University, Doctoral College UK, England, University of Economics in Katowice, Poland for Student & Faculty Exchange, Joint Research & Academic Activities, Joint Academic Programs, Uni- Italia, Italian Universities for sharing a common interest in terms of education, Research, Student and Faculty Exchange Programs, University of Ain Temouchent Joint courses, for Faculty Exchange and Student Exchange, Research Exchange etc., PSB Academy Singapore, for International Student Exchange, Faculty Exchange, Joint Research, Faculty of Information Studies in Novo Mesto, Slovenia, for International Student Exchange, Faculty Exchange, Joint Research and Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Bellville, Cape Town, South Africa , for International Student Exchange, Faculty Exchange, Joint Research. Students can win a scholarship under the ERASMUS mobility program to study at the University of Cartagena, University of Economics, Katowice, Poland and many more. These exchange programs help students to widen their perspectives and understand the art of management better.
Simulations mimic the real-world business scenarios in the form of a game for students to learn decision making. At VBS, we use this pedagogy extensively to give the students a glimpse into the world of corporate strategy. By experiencing the simulation, the students can test themselves before encountering such situations in their careers. It is a very proactive learning pedagogy as compared to ‘Chalk and Talk’ that traditional classes offer. In the Simulation program offered by VBS, students get to results through a trial-and-error method which results in self-learning. Moreover, this is played in a competitive mode between teams leading to enthusiastic participation. The learners grow their skills and knowledge, by scanning the internal and external environment of business. It thus allows them to consider multiple variables on which the business depends. The Simulation requires data gathering and analysis thus expanding their horizon. Learning from Simulation games is a ‘Game-Changer’ in our Management Institute.
Learning by Doing is the main motto of our course. We encourage students to take up on-the-job training and corporate internships at various reputed organizations. This helps students gain experience of working in a business organization, while grasping curriculum related information. Besides this, students are given corporate and industrial exposure through a slew of programs such as – one day industry visits, special guest lectures and industry interaction. Students get an opportunity to work on industry projects.
A “Cap-stone” is actually used to complete a monument or building. As a future leader, students would have to establish many such successful projects. We facilitate them to hone those skills through a “Capstone Project” Capstone projects are generally developed to energize students' critical thinking, problem-solving, oral communication, research, and teamwork abilities. Additionally, this project enables student to figure out how to connect with the real life problems and find solutions for them. In the process students enhance their skills and knowledge through self-driven research under a faculty guide. This independent research based project allows higher level analytical and synthesis learning.
YUVA for SEVA
VBS's social immersion program - YUVA for SEVA has been designed for igniting a sense of social responsibility and sensitivity in students. During the 3-week program, students work with NGOs from across the country. Students are required to come up with solutions for social issues addressed by the NGOs.
Mentoring Program (Guru-Shishya Program)
At VBS, we believe in molding future business leaders by giving them personal guidance. We conduct a Guru-Shishya program to assist our students as they enter the early years of their professional life. Our faculty members guide the students on key issues to help them become effective managers.
Personality Development Program
At VBS, we understand the importance of all-round development of the personality. When not teaching, our well-experienced faculty members hold personality profiling of each student and identify their development to become better individual’s areas in which they need improvements. Students get opportunities to sharpen their communication skills, build a positive attitude towards life, improve their leadership qualities, networking abilities and business management through the tailored personality development programs.
