“You are not a drop in the ocean, you are the entire ocean in a drop.” ~ Rumi

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 have an undergraduate degree in B.E. Computer Science and Engineering. After completing my UG, I joined GIBS College to pursue my PGDM course.

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.

A pool isn’t just the same as an ocean. It has no energy, no Life”. Quote by Linda Gerber 

The 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.

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.

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.

Amit Panicker

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.
