What Do Top Management Colleges Expect from the Applicants

What do MBA colleges look for in applicantsTop Management Colleges receive lakhs of applications every year but when it comes down to offering seats to students, they are extremely selective. There is no need to get disheartened because in this post we will discuss the primary requirements which top management colleges in Bangalore expect among the applicants.

Following are the main criteria that top management colleges seek:

Academic Ability

The B-Schools tend to determine your academic potential based on your test scores. Also, pay special attention to your application materials to make your profile stand out among the numerous others. They also assess candidates based upon their academic proficiency along with a significant weightage assigned to active participation and achievements in extra-curricular activities.

Thought Clarity and Passion

The B-Schools certainly do not appreciate an applicant who is clueless about his/her career goals. Be very mature about your vision in life. A strong outlook and the will to commit towards your goal takes you a long way when you are being assessed by top management colleges for admission.

Strong Communication Skills

There is filtering at the application stage as well. Therefore, your ideas need to be impressive so that your application will be processed to the next stage – interview. Provide all the required details correctly and prepare well to be able to communicate your ideas to the interviewers.

Participation in co-curricular activities

Top management schools also lay emphasis on extracurricular excellence. They prefer candidates whose profile showcases a diversity of their personality traits and skills. This helps them understand how well the candidate will fit in their institute’s culture.

Leadership and team-building skills

The ability to analyze a given stressful situation to arrive at a solution matters a lot for the interview panel. The applicant must have humility, integrity and global mindset as of the attributes to leave a lasting impression on the interviewers.

If you think that you have it what it takes to get admission in a top management college then you must join ISBR.

International Educational Trip under PGDM Program

PGDM with International Trip

When I was asked to write a column on International Study trip, I was really honored to have this opportunity and genuinely blank as to where to start to the package of abundant experience and memories.

Now starting from Singapore the most expensive city in the world and where we first landed by Silk Airlines is a wow factor in my mind. We were led by Dr. Chandra Niranjan ma’am and Mr. Anoop through the entire trip.

As soon as we landed I could see the strictness in passport checking and giving index finger impression of both hands I had never known. But it was fun too being in the group. Two buses were booked and we travelled to the Hotel spellbound at the beautiful roads, the greenery, and the cleanliness of the city. We reached the hotel and right after some rest, we went to Marina Bay (Clarke’s) for dinner. It was amazing feeling to have dinner with your friends beside the man-made lake and the luxurious business space all around.

The next day, it was a day for visiting NEWater where the processing of water takes place for Singapore. The Guide took us through how every pipeline is linked to come down to the storage of NEWater and filtered through various micro neuron pipe and UV. We learnt how much the Singaporeans valued every drop of water. We marveled at how attractive they had made the Visitors’ Centre. They also gave us an option of signing a pledge on how we could save water and the earth. As an experience we were also served water to taste.

Visiting National University of Singapore was amazing with their acres of area, swimming pool and other sports arena. Sports are a priority for any educational institution in Singapore.

Our next visit was to the Tiger Beer (Brewery). We toured around the whole factory to observe how from raw material to the finished product was manufactured.(in the hot oven like factory). It was fun though.

Singapore is a hot humid country but I have to say the van we traveled had a luxury of James Bond kind of movie.

In the evening we had our first experience of the Singapore Metro travel (MRT) and reached Marina Bay to see the magnificent view.

Universal Studio was one of a kind visit to see the amazing creatures of ocean all in different colors and species through glass ceiling. We spent hours watching them. It was amazing to see the technology and management of the whole setup.

Our visit to The Merlion, and the Sound and Light show- Wings of Time at the Sentosa Island was absolutely spectacular. We relaxed at the Silosa Beach to see the sunset, the Indonesian border and the ships laden with oil, learnt the economics of this trade and also the sudden light up of the ships which felt like it was another show. We were amazed at the lightning that looked like it touched the ground and felt the light rain on the beach. On the whole, it was an awesome experience.

We were lucky to have visited Singapore during Chinese New Year of celebration and witnessed the famous Lion Dance. And the story doesn’t end here. We travelled all the way from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) by bus in the night. We were told by the bus coordinator not to have anything in the bus and any mess can cause 100 SD. That was an eye-opener, on how they valued cleanliness.

Visiting Malay University was one of my most insightful visits in the entire trip. The talk by Dr. Samir, Professor, Information Management, on big data, future skills required, Research activity, Malaysian history was brilliant. We experienced authentic Malaysian lunch in the university …not a word for that.

We visited PETRONAS Twin tower and spent the entire evening with fun and laughter sitting along the road side. And what’s amazing was slight drizzle which romanticized the environment.

My most exciting moment was going to Genting highland, 6,118 ft. above sea level. We traveled all the way above through Gondola ride amides clouds where my ear started to slightly close. We got down at Chan Swee Station. The clouds were literally inside the building and couldn’t see anyone beyond 50 meters. We climbed Buddhist Pagoda to get the amazing never to be forgotten sight of my life… the heavy jungle, hills and fresh cold breeze touching your face.

The mega day event where most of the places we covered were 500 acres Putra Jaya, taking pictures near the prime minister’s office, Sultan Palace and International Convention center. The 3-tiered Putra bridge was a sight to see. The beautiful planned city and roads were again amazing.

Royal Selangor which depicts culture, custom of Malaysia producing handmade Pewter products is a sign of excellence.  And what’s amazing is all the workers are women. In 1994 F1 trophy was made here. Some of my friends also bought some unique pieces from the store.

The next stop was the Batu caves. It is a naturally formed lime stone caves which has 270 steps and we did climb the stairs….phew…It was awesome.

The last day was again an unforgettable experience. We reached KIAL airport and the whole group shopped for chocolates. With this baggage, we boarded the plane only to be delayed by more than 45 minutes due to heavy rain. We reached Singapore Changi Airport, were received by the airport staff and were literally made to run to Singapore Airlines aircraft as the plane was waiting for more than an hour for our group!!!

We had a sumptuous dinner on the plane and reached Bangalore at 10,30pm.

8 days of travel went by just like that! Wake up, get ready and there is new destination to go every day. That was our schedule…how cool is that waking up to unknown experience that holds ahead.

TEDXISBRBangalore- The Youngest TEDx Event of South india

TEDxISBRBangalore Team

On the 10th of March 2018, the city of Bangalore witnessed its youth brimming at one of the youngest TEDx Event of the country- TEDxISBRBangalore, held at Jagriti Theatre in Whitefield.

The global platform of TED i.e. “Technology, Entertainment and Design” has gained superior outreach in India after the TED Talks India- Nayi Soch being hosted by Shah Rukh Khan off late. TED and TEDx have now become the Medias for sharing great ideas in a community through a simple medium of expression. They provide platforms to ideas that are contributors in nature for a certain segment of the society by people who are usually not that famous but have “IDEAS WORTH SPREADING”.

The young students of ISBR ( International School of Business and Research) in Bangalore conceptualized the whole event with a marvelous theme- Rubik’s- Find Your Right Place with sub-topics- Art, Leadership, Technology, Creativity, Leadership and Youth Expectations. They also mapped their theme to their choice of speakers who came from different walks of life and works. Their speakers included:- Anupam Nair, a Bollywood Singer; Arun Varma, the founder of BBQ Ride India; Deepak Justin, motivational speaker and life coach; Dheeraj Kolla, a Micro Artist; Isaac Kehimkar, the Butterfly Man of India; Pramod Siddagangaiah, the founder of Live Green India; Vahbiz Bharucha, the Former captain of India Women’s Rugby Team and Yathaarth Murthy, a 12 year wonder boy from Bangalore who can sing 215 National Anthems.

The event was also lined up with power packed performers like Sandeep Sharma, a budding vocalist and guitarist from ISBR Business School; Rajashekharan Parameshwaran, the Guinness World Record Holder for creating the world’s largest Edakoodam- the Indian Grandpa of the Rubik’s Cube; Swahaa Band, a Indian classical fusion band and Eliath Fernandes, a violinist, who has been performing since the age of 5. The audience seemed to be very much curious to see this 12 year old kid who could sing a whooping 215 National Anthems because this is no mean feat. And he lived up to their expectations when he coined a new term by saying, “I want to become an “Anthem”-ologist!!!”

The attendees were a curious lot of 100 that included corporate from all over the southern region of the country and students from across various schools and colleges of Bangalore. They were greeted with exciting goodies, energetic volunteers, amazing food and above all a perfect platform for networking.

The event was hosted by a young and electrifying Emcee- Sathvik Shetty who set up the tone for the whole event and entertained the audience wherever required. The event also had pre-recorded TED Videos played of some of the most amazing ideas at the TED platform, which the team felt were in alignment with their theme and speakers line-up.

Overall the event was a great success and the Team TEDxISBRBangalore signed off with the promise of living up to the benchmark that they created in their first event itself.

A CSR initiative by ISBR CSR Club on World Water Day- 22 March

“Wherever you are and whatever you do on March 22, make it about nature and water.” 

What is World Water Day?

World Water Day

Water is synonymous to life. Thus World Water Day, on 22 March every year, is about focusing attention on the importance of water. The theme for World Water Day 2018 was ‘Nature for Water’ – exploring nature-based solutions to the water challenges we face in the 21st century.

Damaged ecosystems affect the quantity and quality of water available for human consumption. Today, 2.1 billion people live without safe drinking water at home; affecting their health, education and livelihoods.

Sustainable Development Goal 6 commits the world to ensuring that everyone has access to safe water by 2030, and includes targets on protecting the natural environment and reducing pollution.

In answer to the UN call on Water Crisis,  We at ISBR- Business School- Electronics City took up the Water Crisis of our City Bangalore which is heading to Zero Day like that of Cape Town in South Africa where water is Rationed and took following action:

  1. Walkathon- ISBR in association with (Electronic City Industry Association) ELCIA organized a walkathon in Electronics City spreading the message on Water Conservation.
  2. Skit on the theme – “Nature for Water” was enacted at the Event of Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) at the the Grand Ashok to generate the social awareness. The audience consisted of around 200, encouraged the ISBR team to perform peerlessly on water conservation theme. According, to Prof Shiva Prakash, Faculty ISBR and Coordinator of the event,” Every drop is precious and through sustainable practice we can survive through the upcoming challenges.”

Mr. Manjunath, PRO of Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board, said,” Solution centric approach is necessary to combat the water crisis. It has become a necessity to change people’s attitude towards water. A sustainable livelihood can only be obtained if mankind reduces their carbon footprint and ensures dynamic conservative practices.”

The skit not only gives a social awareness but also ensures every individual should learn to save every drop being its worth as high as one’s own life.
