How an E-MBA changed the lives of some of Goa’s brightest business brains

We all have dreams and ambitions; we all have goals we want to achieve. But the difference between those who succeed and those that don’t, is that the former have a deep thirst for knowledge and a continuous desire to better themselves. And while the academic route is not the only one available to better oneself – it is one that has proven to deliver.

Let’s take a look at how GIM’S Executive MBA shaped the lives of 6 extraordinary individuals and helped them become the successful leaders they are today:

1. Dr. Viney Naresh Jindal – Former Dean of Goa Medical College, one of the oldest medical colleges in Asia

Although Dr. Jindal enrolled himself for the E-MBA program without any goal in mind, he admits that he has greatly benefited from it. He says “GMC is a very diverse institution with employees ranging from highly educated professors to sweepers and managing all of them is not an easy task. Studying organizational behaviour helped me a lot in dealing with various complex situations that arose during my tenure”.  In addition to that, it prepared him to handle financial issues within his organization and also refined his communication and interpersonal skills. He feels that real-time implementation of concepts is a lot more effective than studying it and then later implementing it when you get a job.

2. Dr. Radhika Nayak – Principal of S. S. Dempo College of Commerce and Economics

It was around the same time of joining the E-MBA program that she was offered the position of Principal; which, she accepted. She was excited by the two huge challenges, beginning together. All the subjects suited her job requirements – accountancy, communication skills, strategic management, interview techniques, HRM, leadership and so on. She says “I benefited a great deal from the program! The tangibles were of course the degree with a grade sheet that I was proud of but of greater importance were the intangibles – admiration for excellent teachers, friendships for life, renewed enthusiasm in the midst of young colleagues and the satisfaction of having spent 3 years productively! This is an experience that one should never miss!!”

3. Mr. Anirudha Walawalkar- Director-Fluid & Power Automations LLP Turnkey Electrical Works Ltd (responsible for the lighting of the Iconic Atal Sethu Bridge)

Mr. Walawalkar refused to take the easy route and delayed joining his family business because he knew he would be treated as royalty and would never be able to learn any real-life lessons. He joined J & J Precision India after completing his engineering and around the same time joined the E-MBA course at GIM. He says “EMBA definitely helped me a lot. It has expanded the horizon of my thinking capacity. As an engineer I would focus only on production related activities. EMBA has taught me the importance and art of management. It has given me a broader perspective of how to run a successful business.” He is someone who loves to challenge himself and make the impossible possible. One of his earliest work was electrifying Surla village in 2006.  Some of his other notable lighting work is that of the iconic Atal Sethu and IFFI.

 

4. Mr. Kabir K Shirgaonkar- Deputy Collector – Goa Government- Mapusa

Mr. Shirgaonkar, currently the Deputy Collector of Mapusa is a force to reckon with and EMBA has greatly contributed in him reaching his current position. He says “The EMBA course at GIM has been a great contributor towards the development of my personality and fulfilment of my professional goals. The leadership, time management, man management, group discussions and workshops on team skills have aided me immensely to augment my existing repertoire an all new level. From a job in the Corporate sector to a job in the Goa Police dept. as a Police Sub Inspector to my present job as a Deputy Collector & SDM of Bardez, brand GIM has thought me to be more ambitious and constantly strive to reach higher standards.”

 

5. Mr. Mishal Maganlal- Director, Magsons Group

Magsons Group is Goa’s largest retail chain. Mr. Mishal, the director says “The EMBA program at GIM enabled me to apply my learnings in real time at work. Coming from a science background, the course curriculum and guidance of the professors has helped me develop a strong business foundation.”

 

6. Mr. Ketan Pradip Kenkre- Director of Operations – Sanaya Energy LLP

6.jpg

Mr. Kenkre is a very respected member of the Goan business community. He is also very passionate about making India energy sufficient through the use of alternative energy. He says “My journey at GIM was so stupendous; it not only gave me more logical ways of looking at a problem but brought over a complete paradigm from pin to piano in me. From the interpersonal skill development, to the confidence in facing large audiences, not to forget the numerous benefits of NLP, & AMP; also, to bring out and polish all my skills that were in abeyance to me and much more.”

8 reasons why Goan Businessmen & Executives should pursue a Part-Time MBA

In Goa, we are known for our susegad – a relaxed and laid-back- way of life. Sounds perfect, right? Well, it may work for the rest of life, but when it comes to business – you may want to think again! With the rapidly changing business environment globally it has become imperative to keep up-to its pace, if growth is what you are after. And we believe that a  well-rounded management programme will not only enable you to effectively respond to these changes, but will also give you an edge that’ll ensure you are always one step ahead.

 

Here are 8 reasons why you should pursue a Part-Time MBA:

  1. To grow your business

A Part-Time MBA is perfect for you, if you are already into the realms of business. It gives you the opportunity  to hone your business acumen and entrepreneurial skills that will supplement your industry experience. Pursuing an MBA will also help you develop the ability to have a larger macro perspective of your business that will help you make informed decisions – which means – You  win AND your business wins.

 

  1. To climb up the corporate ladder

Climbing up the ladder in the corporate world can be a long and tiresome journey; speed it up by adding an MBA to your creds. Besides providing you with the ammunition of better management it will equip you with a peek into the workings of all business faculties whether it be finance, marketing, HR or operations. This in turn will result in you being a step ahead of the herd in claiming that promotion you’ve been eyeing. You will also increase your prospects of getting a much better job outside your current organization which is most often accompanied by a fatter pay cheque.

 

  1. You don’t have to give up your weekly schedule

Yes. You can have your cake and have it with ice-cream too! An Executive (or part-time) MBA is designed specifically for working individuals and therefore classes are conducted on the weekends. Which means you do not need to take time off from work; you can simply pursue both, your career and education hand in hand.

 

  1. To make an immediate impact

Since an Executive MBA is part-time program, you will have a prompt effect at work and can  apply the concepts and knowledge you gain in the classroom almost immediately. The learning is profound and connecting since you can test your new learnings when you return to the workplace. Moreover, there are numerous functional components such as projects that are part of the program and will give you valuable insights and cross-functional learning. You might even consider  taking a shot at solving a problem you are currently facing at work or at your own business with inputs from your classmates and professors alike.

  1. To enhance your Leadership potential

The idea and routine with regards to leadership in business includes substantially more than overseeing others. It is likewise about helping your association adjust to the obscure. Leaders must be adaptable, mindful of their specific situation, and ready to alter their authority style to the current circumstance. In this way, creating and improving your authority abilities is urgently significant to successfully run an organisation, and an EMBA offers you the chance to do just that.

 

  1. To adapt to the constantly changing business environment

Knowledge and skills acquired by conventional degrees quickly become out-dated due to the dynamic nature of the modern business environment. An Executive MBA will prepare you for these changes by refining your skill set to match current business requirements and banish your fears linked to constant change. It is also greatly helpful to working individuals with a non- management background level one’s own playing field in business world.

 

  1. To gain new skills and enhance your current skill set

Anveshan 2019

“Be proud of your past, but don’t become a prisoner of your legacy and education. Discover your passion and uncover your true north” ~Mr. Prabir Jha, President and Global Chief People Officer, Cipla

The first day of Anveshan, 2019 started on a very enthusiastic and positive note with the lighting of the lamp by the keynote speaker of the event, Mr.Prabir Jha, Prof. Venkatesh Naga and Prof. Padmanabhan. Prof. Venkatesh Naga opened Gyaanodaya – the first event of Anveshan 2019 – with an address where he spoke about the GIM difference and commended HRiday, the HR club of GIM, for their hardwork in organizing the event.

Mr. Jha took over the stage to share his experiences in HR and advise students in their personal and career choices. Believing that “the ability to think beyond the obvious” is the core to becoming a great leader he said, “in your life and career you will be making decisions that will be momentous. Look assymetrical and do not lose out on the risks and opportunities that come with it.”

 

In just Day 1 of Anveshan 2019, HRiday successfully executed yet another event:
‘Margdarshan’ – in association with TOPSIM provided by Tata Interactive Systems.

Case study competitions are a big part of management school. Albert Einstein said, “the value of a college education is not the learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think.”

Samiksha, the flagship event of Anveshan, is India’s biggest national level live HR case study competition. The uniqueness of the event stems from the fact that the case study’s have been written in collaboration with companies such an Syngenta, Make a Difference and Sanofi who, post the event, get exclusive rights to the solutions as well. This year, the event saw participation from B-schools across the country.

Team Nocturnal Beings (Surbhi Gupta and Juie S Shah) from MICA bagged the 1st position and Team Rampage (Pallabi and Tanya Anand) from MICA bagged the 2nd position.

They also gave us the opportunity to beat some djembe’s for the afternoon and enjoy the feeling of being one with music whilst simultaneously being amongst a circle of friends. There was something therapeutic and euphoric about the whole experience.

The workshop Drum-e-Baazi was organised by Machhli – the art space and conducted by their founder Vartika Gupta and her team. We thank them for their palpable and infectious energy that left us all with a skip in our step.

A perfect end to Anveshan 2019. Signing off for now and until next year…

THE ‘UNOFFICIAL’ TIPS ON CRACKING THE INTERVIEW

With applications closing soon (4th Jan 2019 to be more specific), it’s now time to prepare for what’s next- group discussions and personal interviews. Here are some ‘unofficial’ tips that might help you in that next phase.

new1

Know what you are going to say: We aren’t saying you should hard code what you are going to say at the interview but vaguely knowing how you are going to respond to certain questions could help you calm those nerves. While the questions at your interview may differ with the interviewer across the table, certain questions are inevitable and preparing for those will give you a boost of confidence as you step in. For eg: In all probability you will be asked, “Can you tell me something about yourself?” or “Why do you want to get into GIM?”; practice enough to remain calm and composed, but don’t overdo it, lest you sound robotic.

 

Bring specific questions:

Your interviewer may expect you to ask some questions about the institute and talk about how you are going to add to the campus community. Put some effort into coming up with creative questions; preferably answers to which cannot be found on the FAQs section of our website.

Be yourself…but be your best self: The interview is not the time to talk about your CAT/ XAT or GMAT scores, it’s the time to talk about your life and who you are. The most important part of the interview is letting your stellar personality shine through; now you may have many sides to you, but showcasing your professional, mature and poised side might be your best bet. Showing up like you just peeled yourself off the couch may not be a great idea, but grooming yourself to be pleasant and presentable might.

Know what’s going on:

Not only with regards to business and management, but also about the things that matter to you. If football is a passion, then you should at-least know who is at the top of the table of the English Premier league. Or if the financial markets are your thing, then you should have a POV on how to improve the strength of the slipping Indian Rupee.

Breathe in, Breathe out: Having a one-on-one interview could be nerve-wracking. But you shouldn’t feel like you are on trial.  Try to be as comfortable as you can possibly be and remember that your interviewer also wants your interview to go well.

 

The bottom line here is to be yourself and not overthink the situation.

 

5 technological innovations that can change India’s healthcare industry

Technology has helped increase life spans, minimise recovery times and improve quality of life. At GIM’s recent conference on universal healthcare in India, vice president of One Ethicon Surgical Businesses and J & J Medical India Ashish Kohli pointed out that it isn’t just new innovations that change the healthcare industry, but also the proliferation of technology. He joined Punit Kohli, managing director of Fresenius Medical Care India, in listing out five technological innovations currently changing the healthcare industry in the country

 

Vacuum-assisted deliveries
h1

One method of assisted vaginal deliveries is the use of obstetrical forceps, which guide the baby out of the birth canal. However, this has been found to sometimes cause trauma to the mother and child. A lower-risk option is vacuum extraction which applies relatively less force on the baby. Punit Kohli suggested that the World Health Organization (WHO) is working on a way to bring this to the developing world where maternal mortality is currently high.

 

Dialysis canisters
h2.jpg

Dialysis requires large amounts of water, which is a scarce resource in many developing countries, including India. Researchers are working on a method that uses a five-litre canister which will reduce the need for water by up to 10 times.

Wearable kidneys
h3

Within the dialysis sector itself is the development of wearable kidneys. This could be life-changing for patients with kidney issues, eliminating the need for frequent dialysis. It provides continuous renal replacement 24 hours a day and is expected to be more affordable and feasible in the long run.

 

Biodegradable dialysis bags
h4.jpg
Companies like Fresenius Medical Care India are drastically reducing environmental waste by moving to biodegradable stoma bags. Peritoneal dialysis involves each patient using three bags per session, which causes a huge stress on the environment. With biodegradable bags, this burden is lifted.

Robotics
h5.jpg
Ashish Kohli suggested that digital surgery solutions will be a global gamechanger, offering examples such as advanced ablation devices to deal with small tumours and minimal invasive procedures for hysterectomy which allow women to get back on their feet faster than ever before.

 

We at GIM believe that a strong and inclusive healthcare environment ensures sustainable economic development, that’s why our Healthcare Management programme (HCM) is focussed on developing students to make a fulfilling career in management of healthcare organizations.

Adding the ‘V’ for Victory in Big Data Analytics – a GIM contribution

‘Big Data’ is the new Buzz Word in business today and while the world gets up close with the 10 big V’s of this new buzz (Volume, Velocity, Variety, Veracity, Visualization, Venue, Value, Virality, Variability and Viscosity); we at GIM are attempting to add another ‘V’ that we believe stands for ‘Victory’ in the field of Big Data Analytics. How are we doing this you may ask – well, we are applying the philosophies of business management on Big Data Analytics (BDA) through our PGDM in BDA.

Here’s the low down of a few simple things that help us in our endeavor of creating future-ready, data-fluent managers:

  1. WHAT WE TEACH – READ. LEARN. REVIEW. REPEAT.
    b1.jpg

    Knowing to read data and understand the inferences it throws are 2 very different capabilities and luckily our program in BDA gets our students to acquire both of those skills. As part of the program you will not only learn statistical theory, data management, business intelligence systems including artificial intelligence (another buzz word) as well as deep learning and related tools, techniques and algorithms; but also understand their application in business.

    Old may be gold- but it sure doesn’t hold true in the field of Big Data and the velocity that comes with it. Therefore we are constantly engaging with business and industry to make sure that our program reflects their needs – all these to make sure that you are never outdated.


  2. HOW WE TEACH: A 40:60 mix of Business knowledge and BDA experienceb2.jpg
    Our Pedagogy:

    Teaching with innovative techniques is what keeps us at the top of our game – read as NO detention for talking in class (unless it’s campus gossip or lunch menu discussions)! We are all about participative learning, since we could all learn a thing or two from each other.

     

    Our Data Science Laboratory: Now this may sound fancy but we think it’s essential that our students get their basics right. Therefore, before taking on the challenge of making sense of big data in the dynamic business world, our students are exposed to hands-on training in our data science lab enabled with cloud service. This allows you to apply case-based learning on actual data sets.

     

    On-the-Job learning: With 2 well-spaced opportunities for in-company experience during the program itself, you can be stand a better chance to find your place in the industry to apply what you have learnt at GIM in the real world during the program itself– 1) A summer internship at the end of Term 3 and 2) A full last term that is dedicated to in-company training. So you not only learn, but can also exhibit.

  3. WHO’S ON-BOARD:

    Who better to be the founding blocks of our program than the maestros themselves? Our board of studies formed for this program is comprised of a galaxy of stars from renowned universities and pioneering companies in the field of big data analytics. Name-dropping really isn’t our thing, but with the names we have below, who can blame us.

    • Prof Károly Böröczky, Professor and Head of Department of Mathematics and Its Applications, Central European University.
    • Prof Chandrasekhar Subramanyam, Sr. Professor and Director Business Analytics Centre, IFIM Business School, Bangalore.
    • Sandeep Mittal, Managing Director, Cartesian Consulting Pvt. Ltd., Singapore & Mumbai.
    • Prof Prithwis Mukherjee, Programme Director, Business Analytics, Praxis Business School, Kolkata.
    • Prof Arnab K Laha, Professor, Production and Quantitative Methods, Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad.
    • Shailendra Singh, Head, eCommerce, Hindustan Unilever Ltd, Mumbai, India.
    • Prof Niloy Ganguly, Professor Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Karagpur.
    • Prof Pulak Ghosh, Professor, Quantitative Methods and Information Systems, Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore.
    • Dr Anshuman Gupta, Director Data Science at Pitney Bowes and Ex-Head of Data Science Program at Cognizant Technology Solutions, Bangalore.
    • Soumitra Das, Senior Consultant, Analytics Training, SAS Institute, Mumbai.

     

    Well, that’s how we are going for ‘Victory’, and we hope it excites you as much as us. Don’t waste a minute more; apply to our PGDM in BDA now.
