Eastern India provides comparatively fewer employment opportunities in the middle management category as believed by quite a few Industry Pundits. The Bengal School of Business Studies (BIBS), based in Kolkata, is a premium Management Institute which has been ranked 2nd Best B-School in Eastern India by The Times of India B-school survey for 2 consecutive years (2018 and 2019) and received the Best Education Brand Award by The Economic Times has shattered this myth.
BIBS has been imparting Management Education for over 11 years and is an Industry leader providing excellent placement opportunities for their students. The changing trends of Placements at BIBS has been astounding. FMCG companies like Nestle, Adani Wilmar, Dabur, Coca Cola and Mondelez have already hired 28 students from the 2017-19 batch as compared to 8 from the 2016-18 batch. Going by the similar trends, Banking companies like ICICI, Kotak, Yes Bank have nearly doubled their hire from 16 (of the 2016-18) batch to 30 (from the 2017-19). These trends do not show any fatigue in hiring from Eastern India and indicate stronger growth over the coming months.
A major factor to have played a crucial role in achieving these results has been the innovative design and implementation of the course work by BIBS. Their management courses are Industry driven. Over the course tenure the students have multiple interactions with the professionals from various industries to help them gather a clear understanding of the needs and changing trends of the market.
According to Mr. Vidur Kapoor, Chairman of BIBS Kolkata: “The institution has an ‘Industry Internship’ central to its Post Graduate Program provides hands-on experience and exposure to students on the operational aspects of business. The Management Guest Inspired Series – MGIS where noted personalities from the Business and Professional communities interact with students to share Management views and insights are essential for grooming of the B-School’s prospective managers. The college organizes ‘Corporate Sessions’ with Senior Managerial Professionals from various Industries to provide awareness to students about the changing trends in business. This holistic education process has been the key contributor towards making the BIBS’ students ‘market ready’.”
