The Orientation Program being held at VJIM, Hyderabad is in full swing as new management recruits get acquainted with each other, their B School and the corporate culture as well. A healthy mix of learning and fun activities, the program being held between 11th and 30th June has hit the right notes. And it all began with the ice-breaking session where students worked in teams and got to know each other. For many it is the beginning of the long lasting bonds they will make on the campus throughout the course of the program.
The freshers also got the opportunity to explore the campus through the exciting Treasure Hunt event. As they looked for suggestions and clues they interacted with faculty members and figured out some of the cool spots on campus, which will become their future hangouts. Sessions on grooming, business etiquettes, team management, business strategies and communication skills were helmed by experienced faculty members. These skills are as important to future managers as the knowledge of business concepts they will rely on in their careers.
Students were also exposed to the latter through Pre-term courses that gave them a fair idea of what to expect during the program. Madhulika spoke of the benefits of the courses as she said, “As a Bachelor’s in Computer Applications graduate these sessions were very useful for me to understand the basics of management courses.” The ABS (Analyzing business situations) and News paper analysis also played a key role in helping students understand the latest trends and made them aware of the innovative pedagogues VJIM, Hyderabad focuses on.
The Out Bound Training session instilled the importance of team work amongst students in a fun way. They also got the platform to put their learning into practice through ‘My Theme Corner’. Once again students worked in teams and were given three hours to execute an entire event based on different themes. VJIM, Hyderabad builds on this practical exposure through industry visits and sessions that add to students’ learning experience. The orientation program already included eye-opening visits to Acumen Connect and Finecab, a cable manufacturing company. With this all round exposure new recruits of the institute are definitely on the right track.
