Business Orientation Program, BOP is an exclusive approach by PIBM to provide students the Orientation to Management Studies. A distinctive initiative where the students, in order to develop their knowledge, skills, and attitude, goes through the basic training and development of communication, aptitude, and domain through various classroom and activity oriented learning.
It’s most beneficial to students who have shifted to management studies from a different curriculum background as they require some time to grasp and take a hold of different subjects and the new regime. Business Orientation Program helps them by giving a prior two months training on various skills improvement, domain subjects, building competencies to ensure students have the foundation ready to move ahead with their management studies.
Business Orientation Program at PIBM trains the students through various activities like events, corporate interactions and industrial visits which helps the students to understand various management terms, practices, and workflows which in turn improves their understanding and knowledge base.
We at PIBM believe that a better leader is someone who has a balanced personality and a characteristic developed by Knowledge, Skills, and Attitude equally. The focus of our training and development lies in preparing the students to face real-life challenges, bringing a solution to the problems and act accordingly. Thus, our unique training pedagogy ensures that students are exhaustively trained on their Knowledge, Skills, and Attitude.
Today, the definition of a good management school is largely dependent on its ability to offer industry interface to its students that helps them enhance their practical knowledge and make them ready for the corporate world. During BOP we conduct various corporate events where students are exposed to understand the real-time problems in organizations and to relate the theoretical concepts learnt in the classrooms to practical concepts and with our association with over 450 top Corporate Heads help us provide our students with the scenarios from diverse sectors and companies. Our students interact directly with top Corporate Heads which in turn help them understand the corporate workflow better.
During BOP, to fill the knowledge gap between classroom theories & practical hands-on implementation in companies, PIBM students undergo numerous Industrial Visits in order to gain the much required Corporate Exposure before starting their full-time post Management degree. Students visit manufacturing units, retail stores, company headquarters etc. in and around Pune where they interact with company professionals and have a first-hand experience of various functions & departments in an Organization. PIBM students are exposed to practical situations and events in companies thereby increasing their interlinking skills and sector understanding.
During BOP, students are also trained on the basic fundamentals of Marketing, Finance and HR domains. This helps the students build a basic understanding of each domain and be ready to grasp more when their regular management studies start after BOP.
Some of the most important parts where students require some polishing are their communication skills. During BOP, we provide rigorous training to enhance student’s communication skills thereby ensuring their ability to understand each and every topic and communicate fluently. Through our unique training pedagogy, we enhance the presentation skills, soft skills to make sure that students are ready to take on any challenge after 2 months. Be it a classroom presentation or Communicating in front of an audience, students should always be confident and full of energy.
Aptitude tells about various skills of an individual. For example, analytical skills, reasoning skills, intellectual skills and so on. As today’s corporate world requires skilled people, those who lack these skills fall behind in the line. PIBM’s aptitude training ensures that the students are highly skilled on the above parameters thereby enabling them to become a better problem solver.
During the Business Orientation Program, students go through IT training by expert faculties to ensure their understanding of the fundamentals. PIBM provides Advanced Excel and PowerPoint training equipping the students with basic skills to advanced logic based excel functions and formulas which thereby makes sure that their foundation is ready by the time they start their regular management course after 2 months.
Apart from classroom learning, PIBM provides the students with various activities to gain more corporate insights, confidence and become more energetic and humble in person.
PIBM students also become a part of numerous outdoor activities like team building, trekking and CSR activities.
During the Business Orientation Program, all the students go through various counseling where they receive feedback from trainers about their performance and areas of improvements. The trainers work very closely with the students to improve and enhance them.
