“Our teaching pedagogy is what makes us different from other B-schools. Here, we focus on ‘Learning by Doing’ and our teaching structures are more on workshop based. We believe in student engagement through scenario planning and problem-solving cases,” asserts Dr. Nitin Joshi – Director of DR VN BRIMS. “Industry has become more selective and they are now trying to evaluate people on their attitude, business skills and ability to lead. We have identified some of these trends of recruiters and have been inculcating these skill sets for our students. We start our grooming activities to make our students ready to face interviews and every year we try to add new companies who would recruit our students,” he adds further.
The institute emphasizes the skill-sets of its students by giving them exposure to on-going industrial projects. Also, students are sent to attend various conferences where they have opportunities to interact with professionals and learn directly from these working professionals. This unparalleled attitude of institute attracts a lot of potential recruiters to its campus which in turn increases the employment factor.
“Unique by virtue of Offerings, we believe in a global vision for students and we do the same through our International Industrial Visit. We have a structured Communication strategy called “BRIMS Connect” where a platform is created for free interaction and to acknowledge any achievement of members of the BRIMS family. We are driven by achievement and believe in engaging our students for holistic development,” says Dr. Joshi.
Students can only be exposed to current happenings if mentors are aware of trends going in the industries. “To ensure that our faculty members are completely aware of the latest developments in the education sector, we encourage them to attend lots of programs and conferences organized by national accreditation and professional bodies. As most of our faculty members come with strong industry experience, we are also able to undertake a good number of consultancy projects with the Industry and come up with relevant case studies, which can be used in teaching,” claims Dr. Joshi.
The students are prompted to author research papers with the assistance of the faculties and publish them. Not only do faculty members help students with research papers but also with the institute’s unique and innovative start-up program, where students perform a live project with the industries.
