There is only so much that a blackboard and textbooks can do when imparting knowledge and information to students. With the world going digital and every piece of information being available at the click of a button, the question is how can students be allowed to explore the digital world to be more productive while having their heart and morals at the right place?
Koshys Institute of Management Studies (KIMS) of the Koshys Group of Institutions (KGI) truly understands this dilemma and keeps the student well anchored to the ethics and ideals that is asked of a capable manager. KIMS understands that a management graduate must be well equipped with practical knowledge in all the areas of management and should be skilled in the areas of communication, leadership, team work, time management and crisis management. KIMS help students to build their confidence through knowledge bundling and sharing, soft skill development programs, group discussions, role plays, team building activities and contests, and also enable them to take initiatives for doing mini projects through mentor guidance.
A Comprehensive Learning Environment
The top management and the learnt faculty at KIMS seamlessly weave different teaching methodologies like value added courses, guest lectures, project based learning, internships at national and international level with executive MBA programs, corporate exposure through field trip and industrial visits, and symposiums. Additionally, KIMS also incorporates experiential learning, discussions, presentations, case study development and discussions, buzz groups, workshops, seminars, quizzes, creative writing, debate, question answer rounds, open book tests, scripture search, e- learning, mimeographed outline, assignments, and continuous feedback and evaluation. While this might look like the youngsters at KIMS have to tackle a lot of academic activities leaving no room for overall development, it most definitely is not so. The institute does justice to the old saying ‘All Work and No Play makes Jack a Dull Boy’, and to this effect, organizes various cultural events, sports tournament, and clubs like management club, commerce clubs, and InfoTech club. These activities give a platform for students to present their innovative ideas in the areas of their talent, business concepts, and waste management techniques through usage of the scrap in a different and helpful manner. This move is particularly applaudable as one observes the rate at which the environment is being polluted; KIMS understands the need of the hour, the world needs more ideas to harvest wealth from waste.
Completely aware of the role that a mentor can play in a person’s life, the KIMS faculty are continuously trained to handhold their mentees and shape them to be successful in all their endeavors through active listening, understanding, and encouraging them to reach great heights by providing corrective feedback and continuous support. Moreover, the faculty members at KIMS are encouraged to attend workshops on innovative teaching methods, development programs, case study programs, and workshops on the usage of e-recourses for knowledge enhancement.
LEAD, KIMS’ entrepreneurship development cell is established to nurture those budding entrepreneurs who are brimming with innovative ideas and business plans. KIMS organize interactions between the early stage ventures and eminent personalities through peer groups, events, networks, competitions, and awards the best business idea. KIMS take a step further and assists them with seed funding and assign a mentor for delivering guidance on business plans and its implementation.
The research and consultancy cell at KIMS is committed towards creating new scholarly knowledge and encouraging faculty members to publish research papers in premium journals. It is to be noted that the institute provide domestic and foreign transport and funding to Koshians for presenting their papers in national and international conferences.
Astutely Attracting Prestigious Recruiters
KIMS attracts eminent recruiters by regularly visiting companies to promote the KGI legacy and to share the students’ video profiles. This helps the corporate giants to make a better, faster and informed recruitment decision. Apart from these initiatives, KIMS also conduct placement events and encourage students to visit job fairs at other institutes, while also inviting the HRs to the home campus.
So what gives KIMS the edge that sets it apart from others? KIMS offers courses that are relevant to the current trends like digital marketing, logistics, aviation, cloud computing, CA training classes, and CS course training for our students. KIMS also motivate students to reach for the skies by providing scholarships, rewards and cash prize, and funds for their higher education. Setting milestones with every step that it takes, KIMS hopes to be listed as an Autonomous University with various other courses and colleges under the same umbrella. Considering the pace at which Koshys Institute of Management Studies surges forward, it is only prudent to say that the institute is surely going to set benchmarks in the education domain.
