Pune: A batch of PGDM / MBA students belonging to Audyogik Shikshan Mandal (ASM) Group of Institutes, Pune were felicitated, on completion of the 8 week IIMBx course conducted by IIM, Bangalore recently. The students were honored with certificates and got an opportunity to interact with faculty of IIM Bangalore. Majority of these students have already been placed in well-known companies.
ASM IBMR has a tie-up with IIM Bangalore where students get an opportunity to do the IIMBx digital course through ASM, Pune. This 8 week digital course gives students an edge over other PGDM / MBA students, as it gives them access to IIM faculty, interactive webinars and class sessions. It also gives them better insights into specific subjects in HR, Finance or Marketing.
Speaking on the occasion, ASM Chairman Dr. Sandeep Pachpande said,” We believe such tie-ups with renowned educational institutes like IIM Bangalore gives students the flexibility to choose and pursue their career ambitions, with physical presence, not being an obstacle in their career path. We also leverage our education reach by associating ourselves with other global educational institutes like Harvard Business School online, IBM, SAP providing holistic learning experience and industry relevant techniques for our students.”
Also present on the occasion and speaking on student benefits on this partnership was Prof. P D Jose, Chairman of IIMBx who said “The IIMBx ASM partnership is quite innovative in the sense that we are taking some bit of the higher IIMBx experience to schools and students who otherwise might not have access to it. It allows IIMBx to scale up its activities and work with individual schools to improve overall quality of education. Not all schools have access to same resource or faculty. This kind of collaboration effectively helps everyone to rise up. In a way, it is part of our objective to improve the overall quality management education in the country. In doing so we hope students benefit a lot more.”
Speaking on course value additions Vasanthi Srinivasan, Chairperson, Digital, IIM said, “As a faculty member teaching online especially on the IIMBx platform doesn’t give us a chance to interact with our students. I am truly delighted to meet the batch of ASM students here, is what makes it truly valuable. With absolute no experience, students are able to relate as to how this course will be useful to them in future. The idea of seeding managers of tomorrow starts from colleges and they have an important role to play in the future.”
