Choosing the right business school is the most critical career shaping decision for management aspirants but with all the glitz, publicity and virtual showcasing, an aspirant today is a bundle of confusion and making the right choice becomes a nightmare. Brochures and websites do not really help as they are designed to attract and often induce painting a glittering picture but reality often turns out to be different. And many management students feel they could have done with other options or worse – feel cheated.
Thus, in first of its kind move in India with the objective of ushering transparency and to enable management aspirants to make an informed choice, JKBS conducted the innovative and highly appreciated campus-stay program over the weekend where scores of aspirants from many states including Delhi NCR, Punjab, Rajasthan, MP, Bihar and Orissa participated.
JKBS had left no stone unturned, including a pickup and drop facility, to make it a comfortable experience for the students. Dr. Sanjiv Marwah, Director, JKBS says , “We are very happy with the response we got and it was heartening to hear that participants felt “at home”. We wanted to create an overall experience for them so that they can make an informed decision about their futures.” Clearly, the renowned institute had pulled it off with great success and given participants of the coming events a lot to look forward to.
According to Ritesh, one of the aspirants, who was present for the day, “I was absolutely thrilled to get an insight into the student life at the institute. I appreciate the fact that JKBS is offering us this experience, which no other institute does. It will definitely help me make up my mind about picking the right PGDM program.” There were others who relished the opportunity to interact with present students and know about their experiences. The night stay at the hostel was the first time some of the participants had stayed away from home and they enjoyed the experience.
The innovative and intensive day-night programme started at JKBS sprawling campus in Gurgaon with an interactive session with the faculty and alumni where they were informed about JKBS academic program, internships, events and placement opportunities. This was followed by soft-skill training session. There upon, aspirants were given a detailed tour of the campus facilities.
In the evening, aspirants were invited to participate in games and club activities and also interact freely with student leaders. The experience was complete with night stay at the hostel.
