international immersion a waste in PGPX

How would a five-day international immersion (involving 18 hours of teaching) and a four-week student-industry interface help someone with 10+ years of experience.

The effectiveness of student-industry interface programmes has also been questioned by the alumni. “With the relatively low level of engagement institutes have with industry, they find it difficult to support students and help find them projects in industries where the students aspire to make a switch. International immersion also does not seem to add much value. Sometimes, universities that B-schools tie up with are not globally renowned. So it turns out to be a waste of students’ time and money.



My friend has recently joined GEMS B SCHOOL. It is conceived by experienced academicians and inspired by accomplished professionals, is a mission initiated with the exclusive purpose of "Igniting Excellence" in young minds. Its focus is on creating leaders and not just developing managers. Its vision is to elevate the standards of management education with a curriculum that is robust, content rich and industry relevant.

The Courses and methodology are designed to be student friendly and at the same time matching global standards. GEMS B SCHOOL's strategic alliance with UK Universities and synergy with corporates enables students to have an internationally acclaimed post graduate degree/diploma fortified with real time industry exposure. Its campus, located in the heart of Bangalore city, amidst sylvan surroundings, in the precincts of the Bangalore palace, offers an un-paralleled ambience which is stimulating and soothing. Studying here is going to be an experience of a life time.

They have a unique program of working full time and doing MBA in weekends.

Many US universities are waste of money

Spending as much as $250,000 on a bachelors degree from world-renowned US universities such as Harvard University and Yale is a waste of money.

the cost of a 4-year degree has doubled in real dollars compared to a generation ago. But education, they say, has not become twice as good as many colleges lost their focus.

the tragedy of US universities is how many graduates now have six-figure loans, doled out with little regard to the students' ability to repay them

Need a bedroom dresser?

It's Sunday once again, and the best thing to do first before enjoying the comforts of my bedroom is to clean all the dirt  that has piled up during the weekdays especially our bedroom dressers. With three, busy kids who go to college, our bedrooms can easily be disorganized. They always end up looking like an unruly mess, particularly our cloths. Whew, you could just imagine what a sight it makes! It is as if a hurricane just passed our room leaving no mercy to those who came her way.

Since I started working on  shift, I have not found any moment to do some general organization of all the stuff on our dressers but I always see to it that I return all the things to their places after using them and routinely sort them to see if there is anything I can discard. It is really very important for me that our things are organized. Besides looking neat and clean, it would be a great time-saver when I am looking for something. Its very hectic to find things before leaving.
