Hello everyone I 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
Hi everyone, my name is Priyam Sen and I’m from Guwahati, Assam. I’ve been to Bengaluru before for education, but my experience at GIBS has been exceptional and left a lasting impression on me. The journey here has been filled with valuable learning and practical exposure, making it a memorable and worthwhile experience. What makes GIBS different from other B-schools in Bengaluru is its focus on innovation. The institution encourages creativity and out-of-the-box thinking, making it unique. GIBS is more than simply an educational institution; it is a place where colleagues and batchmates become friends and family. The atmosphere of camaraderie and support among us has been incredible, making every step of this trip enjoyable. One of GIBS’ key goals is to push us beyond our comfort zones and train us to be great corporate professionals. Soft-skill training is essential to our schooling because it provides us with the tools we need to succeed in the corporate world. The faculty of GIBS is outstanding. They give detailed explanations and assistance, ensuring that we not only comprehend the concepts but also learn how to properly use them in our future endeavors. Mr. Ritesh Goyal, our Managing Director, has a potent mantra: PR is not just Public Relations, but also Personal Relations. This motto has had a great influence on me, encouraging me to make genuine relationships with people and pave the way for my success in both society and the industry. GIBS is a goldmine of useful mantras and lessons that mould our character and prepare us for a successful profession.

This quote resonates with me dearly as I sit here thinking of how GIBS Business School is making me realize and bring out the best of my inner abilities that I once wasn’t quite aware existed in me or felt as though they didn’t deserve to be shown to the world. Having been through a professional shift from CA to PGDM, I was all the more sceptical about my decision to join here but thanks to the rays of opportunities and learnings that I get to gather every hour of every day, that doubt of mine is now far from reach. GIBS is one such institution that has enabled learning to be more practical and fun-oriented – letting one have real-time exposure to the corporate world and be better equipped professionally via IRE sessions, marketing lab, various specialized societies, case studies, GIBS Finishing School, interviews, scheduled classes, expert sessions with professionals and guest speakers, networking, to name a few. The events are offered in a cohort style which fosters growth in both personal and professional networks. I am eternally grateful to the Managing Director, Mr. Ritesh Goyal Sir, Assistant dean Prof. Lakshmi ma’am, esteemed faculty members, the hostel warden ma’am, and my dear friends and classmates for their continued support and guidance all through the way. I look forward to seeing myself as a person who keeps ever-evolving, through experiences and knowledge gained in GIBS, and bring out my best in making this world a better place in all the big and small ways possible.

“Life is just a bowl of cherries. But it all depends on how they use it to make cherries taste fantastic.” For me, the cherries started to taste fantastic at the GIBS Business School, Bangalore PGDM Degree which provided me with a good opportunity to make my career taste fantastic. I would like to thank GIBS College, Bangalore and express my sincere thanks to our beloved M.D Mr. Ritesh Goyal Sir for understanding and creating a good platform to showcase our skills. My sincere thanks to our Assistant Dean PGDM DR. Lakshmi mam for encouraging, enriching students and supporting them in every situation.
PGDM team can be expressed as a Family which wanted all the students to grow and become successful in life. They gave us experience and also taught us how to implement each and everything in a practical manner. The faculty members are highly qualified professors who have vast knowledge in corporate world and the way they teach us is fabulous. The amount of joy and the practical knowledge what we gather here will surely help us in the corporate sector and especially the decorum what they maintain is to be appreciated. The college supports students and celebrates each function with joy and involves students as a family. The most important thing which I liked the most in GIBS is “GIBS Finishing School” where it makes all the students perfect and trains students to crack the interview with the help of Trainers which no other college does. I am Proud to be part of GIBSIAN and looking forward for a bright future and amazing year in GIBS.
I reported to the college on 21st July where we had a registration & document submission process and were welcomed by the management staff who guided me through the entire process and made sure everything, including settling into the college and hostel, went smoothly. The following day we had an inauguration ceremony, where we were welcomed by both the staff and the seniors. The students were provided with the proper academic schedule and overall curriculum of the course.
The following 15 days (July 25 – August 10) comprised orientation classes, where we were visited by various industry experts, who shared their knowledge, spoke regarding their experience in their respective fields and advised on how the students should train themselves for the outside world. The overall experience of the classes was very insightful.
On 11th August, the classes for the first trimester started. Various professors with their exceptional knowledge regarding the industry helped with the subjects. Being a student of an engineering background, I had a tough time grasping certain concepts and was lacking in the subjects, but the professors helped me in various ways in clearing all those problems and made me prepare well. There is also an additional subject named IRE that provides an understanding of how a typical business works and that helped me to come up with various innovative ideas and entrepreneurial plans through thorough research and made me understand what the world is looking for in an entrepreneur. The GFS, on the other side, has been helping me to overcome fears like public speaking and helps me communicate fluently by frequently indulging in various activities and providing assignments to overcome these problems.
On the extra-curricular side, professors came out with various activities, role-play, presentations and case studies to make us prepare not only theoretically but also practically and that helped to understand the concepts rather quickly and efficiently.
There were also many events like the fresher’s party, inter-college fest, Vinayaga Chaturthi, Diwali, and Navaratri celebrations that I thoroughly enjoyed and celebrated with my friends.
Overall my experience in GIBS is splendid as it helped me to improve myself and also helped me in continuing to do so and I am grateful for that.
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.
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.
