The Corporate Experience - Prelude to effective placement

The IBA programme is structured in a unique way which works on self motivation. The students get moulded from the time they enter the campus. They learn to plan their academic growth, with the faculty mentoring them.

In the process they are imbibed with challeges of real-time business situations, and are also given the requisite thinking tools to combat with them. Thus their perspectives are widened and acumen sharpened. The corporate Project Assignments, Case Studies, Presentations, Seminars, Symposia and Research work that they are subjected to do, hone their skills, giving them the requisite confidence.

The careful blend of the Corporate Project Assignment with the Final Placement is a continuous activity at IBA. The IBA students are privileged, since they are guided by leading HRD Consultants who have a large and varied clientele as part of their consultancy practice. The placement division of IBA constantly monitors the market needs and shifts, studies the trends and preferences in the industry and orients the students accordingly through a process of functional, managerial, and behavioural skill development techniques.

IBA has a strong interface with the industry through representations that form the core of IBA's Governing Council. An effective networking for this objective is already in place, which is continually expanding geographically.

Examples of this are the successful conduct of the National-level Management Seminar 'Avirbhava 2002' in association with the Greater Mysore Chamber of Industry at Hotel Winsor Manor Sheraton, Bangalore which saw close to a hundred practising managers interact for one full day with IBA students. Weekly Guest lectures are conducted at the IBA Campus which sees the management fraternity of Bangalore and also from around the world flocking in regularly, giving an opportunity for meaningful interaction to students.

Also, in alignment with this need was the day-long meet of the IIM-Ahmedabad Alumnus Association, Bangalore Chapter in IBA campus. This rare event brought together nearly 100 successful top corporate leaders - from INFOSYS, COGNIZANT TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS, IBM, GE CAPITAL, TATA TELESERVICES, BPL MOBILE, MPHASIS, SATYAM COMPUTERS, ARC ADVISORY GROUP, HELIOS & MATHESON, PRICE WATERHOUSE COOPERS, etc. Whilst freely moving around the expansive campus, they also interacted with the IBA students. A High-tea was also organised by the IBA students in the campus for the industry captains of Bangalore, wherein about 30 managers participated in serious impromptu discussions with them.

In sum, the placement initiative at IBA encompasses the whole process from establishing industry contacts and submitting profiles to managing post-placement alumni aspirations.
