The Future of On-Campus Higher Education

Higher Education’s purpose is to provide students with a theoretical and practical understanding of the social, political, and economic issues encompassing the development and future challenges of higher institutions. While this purpose may have remained constant for centuries, the world around colleges and universities is undergoing significant change. Higher education is under pressure to meet greater expectations, whether for student numbers, educational preparation, and workforce needs, or economic development. At ISBR Business School, our new models put an intense focus on the student experience, and the drive for innovation and entrepreneurialism will ensure that higher education continues to meet society’s needs. As we know that the world revolves around the internet, blended learning is trending and is critical to the educational sector.

Imagine being able to find the quotation you are looking for with just a click of a button, instead of having to search endlessly through volumes in the library. Better yet, imagine making a mistake on your thesis – you can hit “backspace” on the keyboard and continue with the assignment, instead of starting all over again. These exemplify modern learning.

However, there is another angle in which ISBR Business School looks at modern learning, and that is blended learning. This program is changing the way we help students learn and creating a better future for them. Here’s how the ‘Core Management Learning Activities” at ISBR Business School brings the best out of classroom study.

  • The Career Development Centre

The Career Development Centre provides guidance to the students regarding their career ambitions and facilitates its corporate partners with a sound platform to interact with the young and dynamic student populace to satisfy their recruitment needs. In adopting this culture, ISBR Business School has introduced a SELF DEVELOPMENT PLAN or rather a SELF ANALYSIS also known as C2C ( Campus To Corporate- Gap Analysis), which is a series of learning tools and activities that enhances students awareness of various industry norms and practices, reality checks, job profiles, skill- sets required etc. to make students industry ready.

  • Adventure Learning Programmes

ISBR Business School’s holistic approach to education provides many opportunities for students to integrate classroom learning with experiences outside the classroom. Every year the School organizes several International Study Tours to countries such as Dubai, Singapore, Malasia and so on for MBA/ PGDM students where they visit companies, attend presentations, discuss strategic issues with managers and meet colleagues from other business schools. During the trips, students interact with leading executives and officials while visiting businesses, factories, and cultural sites. We also periodically organize outbound and adventure learning activities by organizing treks, mountain climbing, river rafting and other activities to impart experiential learning. These activities lead to the development of confident, articulate graduates who are prepared to serve as the next generation of creative thinkers and leaders.

Few of the novel activities carried out under the ‘blended learning’ allows the student to get the most out of the program, which directly corresponds to having a better understanding of the lesson and a higher intelligence level overall.

Theory converted into a workshop

Practical knowledge and theoretical knowledge both are important phases of learning. Perfect combination of both practical and theoretical methods is necessary for holistic learning which is why we encourage theoretical knowledge to be converted into workshops. Some of our workshops conducted are:

A Six Thinking Hats Theory workshop was conducted by ISBR Business School students under the guidance of Prof. Preeja Sridhar Faculty- HR. Other innovative Case Study Workshop Conducted by Mr. P K Thomas was conducted to develop better analytical abilities and enhance decision making capacities with recent best practices.

Panel Discussions

The interactive dynamic of discussion can help students learn and motivate them to excel in the corporate world. One such panel discussion on ‘General Awareness on Specialization’ took place which shed light on the job specializations and what necessary criteria should one adapt in order to succeed in the concrete jungle.
