Every management programme has to be aimed at enhancing the employability of the student executives. Accordingly MPBIM is undertaking a number of non-academic activities to enhance skills of the students, develop qualities of team working and leadership, and improve their overall value-system quotient.
These additional activities, which include relevant soft-skills, are expected to make our students (who are passing out with an MBA degree) more confident and capable not only of acquitting themselves very well during the job selection processes that they will encounter in the immediate future, but also give them a foundation to perform well in their jobs during the subsequent 5 to 6 years.
MPBIM conducts skill enhancement programmes at Garwale Outbound Adventure Learning (GOAL) Centre at Garwale near Madikeri in Kodagu District where student executives get an opportunity to exhibit and hone their skills in decision making, leadership, team working and communication.
