The biggest challenge most of the organizations face today after hiring Management Graduates is of growing mismatch between the job profiles & hired MBAs. We at Allana Institute of Management Studies, make a continuous attempt to understand the industry requirements & prepare our students to handle the challenge with maturity & prudence. Besides academic achievements, the focus is laid on sensitizing the students to the functional areas of management. While the Indian business environment is growing out of local, regional & national boundaries we make sure that our students also adapt the trans-cultural work environment. Seminars, workshops & interactive sessions with the industry dignitaries is a continuous feature of the pedagogy.
Management Education requires a special treatment. We are making an attempt to treat management education with optimum value addition by encouraging students to interact with Industry on a continuous basis. We are of an opinion that Management cannot be treated as a generic branch of education. The various branches of management i.e Marketing, HR, Finance, Systems & Operations are inter-dependent & we make sure that our students comprehend the subtle differences between the functions through case studies, live projects, brain storming sessions, business games syndicate/group discussions & role plays.
Throughout the curriculum emphasis is on soft skills. While it is essential to be technically sound, one should also have the ability to convey his/her ideas to the masses in simple manner. We make sure that our students are empowered with soft skills – after all, any organization is managed by people therefore dealing with people is so very important. Grooming our students with interpersonal skills, team spirit, social grace, business etiquettes, negotiation skills, attitude, motivation & time management is a continuous feature of training.
