Hello everyoneI am Sakshi Tiwari from PGDM 2nd yr. It's already been one year in GIBS and I can be more proud of the decision I made one year back to join GIBS Bangalore. Coming to Bangalore itself was a big decision for me. As I come from the city of ghats and temples - Varanasi, it was a big deal for me. Here I have been exposed to so many new platforms and people from various backgrounds. GIBS provides you with all that can transform you to be a corporate-oriented person. We have great faculties from prestigious universities and they bring their own experience in their teaching. And our own director/ founder is an IIM-B alumnus. He has always been a very powerful visionary who guides us a lot. Apart from academics, we have IRE and CPMP. “IRE” stands for Innovation, Research & Entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship skills are something I discovered here in myself. Innovation and research have made us inclined towards design thinking and deep research skills. CPMP is a soft-skill training Certification course that helps us in improving our Soft-Skills, Communication and teaches us to be problem-solving managers. Every Saturday we have CPMP classes that help us to upskill ourselves. We have group discussions, mock PIs, and other activities that just add on. And these things have just made us a better version of ourselves. The whole pedagogy Here is Corporate oriented. I wholeheartedly thank GIBS for helping us in all ways to be the best.Thank you Sakshi Tiwari

Hello everyone,I am Pratishtha Singh and I want to share a part of my life with you, particularly after I came to GIBS. Although I am usually an extrovert person, , I always had a fear of public speaking. I am not sure why, but I let this fear hold me back for a long time. However, my biggest fear was actually becoming nothing and having no significant identity or being stuck in a job where I felt like an outsider. For most of my life, I was a mediocre student and unaware of my potential.When I made the decision to come to GIBS College in Bangalore for my Master's degree, it was entirely my choice and I am grateful for it. Here, I have had some of the best teachers who are always available and ready to guide me. My mentors have helped me discover my potential and taught me to push my boundaries further. As a class representative and an SCRE - Student Corporate Relations Executive, I have learned to be accountable and responsible for my actions. The best lesson I learned was to not be afraid of making mistakes but to learn from them.Through my experiences at GIBS, I have become more confident in public speaking and have gained a strong faith in myself. I am grateful for my teachers and the college for consistently believing in me and pushing me to be my best. GIBS has become more than just an institution to me, it is a family. I am proud to say that I can bring laurels to my college even after I leave.Yours Truly, Pratishtha ”Prats” Singh

After working as a doctor during a pandemic and gaining expertise in medical sciences, technology, and management, GIBS seemed like the ideal place to learn about the complexities of the sector. The biggest highlight is the unique blend of technology and management, wherein the heavyweights of the education industry, GIBS as your mentor. The subjects are covered with such clarity and detail, that no matter which academic background one comes from, the learning is both satisfying and rewarding. This is possible due to the world-class faculty, a thoroughly professional team, and a stiff course schedule which is demanding, to say the least.
Highly structured and intriguing content broken down for easy assimilation and execution.
Special thanks to GIBS for an initiative that gives wings to thousands of students. The quality education along with all-around development is the best part of the college. Infrastructure and hostel facilities are some of the best. Finishing school sessions along with IRE has proved to be highly beneficial for us. I am highly obliged to be part of the GIBS family.

PGDM Batch 2020-22

In an era where Innovation, Research & Entrepreneurship are the buzzes, GIBS has given us the opportunity to be a part of the three major pillars I.R.E and have a depth understanding of the same. IRE has definitely made us think out of the box & step into the world of the 21st century with a broader mind. For a first-generation wannabe entrepreneur like myself who’s learning, acquiring new skills & taking risks to create new businesses and opportunities…this program is like a blessing to me.
Also finishing school is making sure that we are groomed & well trained to face the other side of the world. The training is all about how we must carry ourselves in terms of body language, communication skills, zeal & the zest, etc. so that we’ll be valued & dignified in the society or in the eyes of others. We honestly feel blessed to get such an astonishing opportunity for all of us to be a part of finishing school. We get to know our weaknesses & finishing school is actually helping us to fix them. I hope we graduate with a cent % in finishing school as well.

I am Naveenraj G, of Batch 2020-22, PGDM. I am specializing in Business Analytics and Marketing. I consider myself a lucky student, to be one of the first ones to explore the privileges of the IRE school from GIBS. The curriculum of the IRE school is a unique program focusing on the practical aspects and the applications of the concepts we learn in our PGDM. The key takes away from the IRE program helped me to achieve my day-to-day obligations efficiently. The components, Innovation, Research, and Entrepreneurship of the IRE School gets you prepared in multidimensional aspects. I thank GIBS for such an innovative and practical approach to learning.

PGDM Batch 2021-23

GIBS is like an open platform of opportunities for everyone. Exposure to knowledge and learning is quite a real thing at GIBS. I chose GIBS because of its unique and highly career-oriented programs like IRE School, where the students will be guided to think differently and have a unique approach towards different situations. Professors here are not only the regular academics concerned, but also helps the students to think practical and bring out the best in them. It is all about how much effort one is ready to put in, it’s like a knowledge mining center, you have to put in efforts to extract as much knowledge as you can. In each and every step we take or idea we think about the professors will always try their best to give us as much support and guidance as they can. GIBS for me is like a bunch of crazy people who came in to create wonders through educating empty minds. It’s a great opportunity for me to be exposed to such a kind of college with varied cultures and amazing programs blend in it.

A pool isn’t just the same as an ocean. It has no energy, no Life”. Quote by Linda GerberThe above-mentioned quote stands true for the GIBS. This wonderful institution works on the philosophy of ‘energy into everything’. This philosophy is a great motivator for students to work harder and make the most of the opportunities provided to them.
To come to this institution has been one of the best decisions as this institute not only helps the students to excel academically but also looks into the overall development of the student such as public speaking, image management, and other skills which are an absolute requirement.
All I can say is that this B-school is everything a PGDM candidate might hope for based on my own experience.

PGDM Batch 2021-23

Hello, I am Rakesh R.y. pursuing 1st year PGDM in Global Institute of Business Studies Bangalore. First of all, I would like to thank Mr. Ritesh Goyal sir for creating such a great institution. Taking admission to GIBS is one of the best decisions of my life. GIBS as the word itself says it encourages and helps us to know management from the perspective of the local body till the international level, when it comes to teaching, all the lecturers are very well experienced, they focus more on practical teaching along with the theoretical teaching. The regular subject’s syllabus is according to the trending market needs, this helps us to get updated about the present market and its demands and this is one of the major advantages of taking a PGDM course.
“OPPORTUNITIES ARE ALWAYS POPING WHEN YOU HAVE the INTENTION TO LEARN AND GROW” yes each and every lecturer in GIBS are very supportive and open to feed us with a great amount of knowing what they have. Most of the students judge the college based upon the highest placement package, if you are not ready to set your mind, learn and implement things, no college can give you the highest placement. If you are the person who is expecting the highest placement, remember that you should also be equally valuable to what you expect.
GIBS not only support theoretical learning but also focuses more on experiential learning, that is where the IRE and Finishing School come into the picture.
IRE I-Innovation, R-Research, E-Entrepreneurship. In Innovation we learn how to bring out a creative idea or a solution to a problem, In Research we walk across how far the idea or the solution to the problem will be beneficial and provide value, and in the last part that is Entrepreneurship we learn to find a way to bring out the plan into practical existence, totally IRE is the best way to push and brush our mind to creative thinking and bring a positive outcome.
Last but not the least GIBS FINISHING SCHOOL, is such a great platform to excel our skills and to be open to grab the available opportunities, In GFS we start polishing ourselves to the placements from the 1st day of joining the college only, in these 2 years of PGDM journey we can nourish us as a person who can stand out in a crowd of competition and having values. GIBS is definitely the best stop to develop yourself in a PGDM course. GIBS hostel is also filled with the necessary facilities which a student should have, as the students from different parts of INDIA take admissions in GIBS, the food in the hostel is prepared by keeping it in concern and the taste is up to the mark. I feel lucky to be a part of GIBS and looking forward to building moments in my future.

Describing my journey at GIBS can be summarized in just one word which is ‘evolve’. Yes, evolving to meet the demands of the corporate world, evolving from an immature college graduate to a mature to-be hired applicant. The journey till date has been phenomenal with teachers being the biggest support system and in no measuring unit can I state how privileged I am to be a part of this institution and being under the guidance of such intellectualities. The journey has just started and there is still long way to go before I sleep but considering how it has been until now, undoubtedly so much more is yet to come and I am definitely looking forward to it.

GIBS, Bangalore is a beautiful institution nestled in the picturesque and serene nature. The institution’s location is away from the crowded hustle and bustle of the urban environment make this institution a truly unique place and well suited for its purpose; the growth and development of the students in a secure and safe environment.

The GIBS College is very good, with very good atmosphere. On very first day when I entered the college, the faculties were welcoming and supportive. Hostel facilities in GIBS are good and they prepare variety of food so that every states student can adjust. GIBS College is different from other college as they have 1 month orientation, in which guest speakers from different companies were called. They shared their experiences and also they told us about the expectations of corporate world from a fresher. We also had SAVISKARA in which we got a chance to show our talent, which initially held us to know each other. Coming to GIBS was my good decision as it will help me to grow and develop my knowledge and skills.

PGDM Batch 2018-20

I took admission in GIBS after a lot of research. GIBS has wonderful facilities as well as a positive campus environment. The college provides consistent assistance regarding the academics as well as placements. Also, it has made the best efforts to provide all the facilities for students like cultural events, sports etc. I’m looking forward to the corporate world interaction it has on offer in the near future. I can proudly say that I ended up making the right decision.

PGDM Batch 2018-20

GIBS Business school is a journey in which there is full of “fun learning” in such a comfort zone. This I can say with utmost surety, because the way all the faculty members have helped us to grow as a better colleague in future is just mesmerizing. The day I entered in this Institution, I was blessed with the peaceful and friendly Atmosphere with excellence of view in this campus. The infrastructure here is well built that it didn’t take time for students to be habitual. Here we got an opportunity to get familiar with the different people having amazing
culture. The orientation has helped all the students to experience the corporate world with the reality before entering it. They do not only focus on studies but also enhances ones talents/interest by introducing to an event known as ‘SAVISKARA’. It also helped few students to get out of their comfort zone and perform well. As we all know “ACTION SPEAKS LOUDER THAN WORDS” this phrase is surely opted by this institution because they had numerous Activities which helped ones to build confidence, moral and willingness to learn more. At last but not the least, I would like to congratulate each and every student foe taking the right decision for their own bright future. Thank you and have amazing experience as I had one.

PGDM Batch 2018-20

The environment supports the development of leadership quality and required values through management wide variety of games team based activities.

The college not only focuses on the academic or job related aspect, it grooms the students to become a ‘better you’ through initiatives like personality development activities encouraging to take up the opportunities, celebration of various festivals (secularism). The mentorship program by GIBS is close to my heart as it helps students find solace and keep me inspired and motivated. The mentor is like a second parent and helps us. All we need to do is “ask”!!

PGDM BATCH 2021-23

I had done plenty of research until I came across GIBS. This institute has proven to be everything one can expect from a PGDM institute. It was difficult to find the needle from the haystack but not impossible and all my research paid off when I found GIBS.
It is different from other institutions not only because of its programs but also because of its approach to the curriculum. My experience so far has only been positive and I want to carry this positivity forward.
