Students in India are used to following the prescribed text right from the primary school days; they are never encouraged to think beyond the text books. This is the way in which we all have been trained previously. But our B-School, Unitedworld School of Business (Kolkata), gives us a fresh window of opportunity to gain what we did lag behind due to the mechanical education system. Faculty members are teaching us in such a way that we can relate text book theories to real life; we are encouraged to think ‘OUT OF THE BOX’. In campus, we are taught to think like entrepreneurs, who develop skills in all the functions of business.
DISHA and CSD of our college are currently organising a series of guest lecturers from different industries from different domain. The series is divided into two parts. YES-Young Executive Speaks brings us the exposure from young executives who have started few years back. They come and share with us the challenges they faced and how they are overcoming them each day. The CEO lecture series brings to us the exposure from the Industry Experts with huge industry experience. They come and share with us the secrets of how to make it big. We are really thankful to the industry speakers who visit our campus and share their valuable experiences with us. These sessions helps us to know “how the industry actually works”. This curriculum design has its inherent strengths to make us become an expert in a particular function. The campus is providing us an opportunity to earn additional credits by offering this type of extra sessions. This type of exposure equips us with the relevant knowledge of the industry and will give us the edge in the battle of employability.
