GIBS FINISHING SCHOOL FOR PGDM / BBA STUDENTS
GIBS Finishing School is a dedicated wing to provide assistance on startups, Placements, and Internships for PGDM students. Every Saturday, the student’s timetable is scheduled keeping in mind the Finishing School agenda.
At GIBS, we believe that “Opportunities are never given, they are taken.” With this philosophy in mind, our Finishing School strives to actively grab every opportunity available rather than passively waiting for it to come around. GIBS has created a unique world-class finishing school, to work on students who come from varied backgrounds.
Our finishing school focuses on filling the gap between the skills our students possess and the industry demands, thus ensuring that GIBS students are ready to start a successful career in their dream organization. All our students undergo career counseling by professional counselors. The finishing school conducts various activities and workshops to prepare them for their interviews.
Practice GOLDEN RULE MANAGEMENT in everything you do. Manage others the way you would like to be managed.” – Brian Tracy
Management as a discipline has bloomed in India as students became fascinated with the concept of leading powerful teams, visualizing themselves as a strategic thinker or even, maybe a mover & shaker in the society and obviously BIG PAYCHECKS. However, this is far from reality as recent research highlights a decline in recruitment trends as corporates find students lacking in some of the softer aspects of management especially communication, leadership, and emotional quotient.
Though most management institutes do justice on the academic front, the softer aspect called ‘Life skills’ gets a step-motherly treatment and oftentimes results in a gap between students’ capabilities and corporate expectations.
Evidently leads to the lower number of placement confirmations and higher rejections.
Having understood this gap and having interacted with various management school stakeholders, GIBS B School introduced the concept of a finishing school and officially launched the GIBS Finishing School (GFS) in September 2021.
