Message from Learning and Development

Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.

– Benjamin Franklin

Beloved students,

The Leaning and Development team at FIIB aspires to help you transform into a dynamic and zestful working professional. We have designed customized programs for your continuous learning and skills training. Equipping you with 21st century workplace skills, we aim to pursue continuous learning and improvement as our whole task. Personal development can be learned through trying new things, trial and error, failure, reflection and awareness of oneself. Critical to personal development is the understanding that failure is essential for growth. How you bounce back from setbacks determines your commitment to growth and development.

We will be rigorously working with each one of you on imparting positive attitude, communication proficiency and personality enhancement to make the transition from “Campus to Corporate” a journey worth the effort. 

I welcome you all to be a part to adapt the de rigueur of today’s workplace and assist you with all your training requirements.

 

What is in it for you?

Employability lab- Developing You Professionally

We believe in the principle of “ PLAN—DO—REVIEW” at FIIB. The LnD department helps you inculcate a culture of Learning by Practice. A lifelong learner aims at holistic development. Therefore, the entire Employability Lab talks about building 21st century skills that will make you highly employable.

PLAN

DO

REVIEW

A holistic, student-centered, cross-organizational planning framework that ensures connectedness between the industry’s responses to students needs towards obtaining a dynamic professional role.

Communication skills

 Developing strong communication skills is essential when it comes to building a successful career. Learn about the most in-demand communication skills and how to improve them by PRACTICING!

Ability To Manage Self

Self-management skills allow you to maximize your productivity, improve your workplace performance and efficiently achieve professional goals. Improving your self-management skills can help you increase your employability and better manage your career path.

Ability To Learn and Adapt

The ability to adapt effectively to the continuous change of our time is a requirement for effective management and leadership in this new millennium.

Organisational Skills

As a manager you’ll juggle multiple responsibilities, so excellent organisational skills are vital. You’ll need to manage your own workload. Effective organisational skills reduce stress, save time and ensure that important deadlines are met.  

Business and Commercial Awareness

Commercial awareness is one of the key attributes cited by many employers as being essential to employability, but unfortunately one that many people seem unable to demonstrate. It comes up time and time again in job advertisements, discussions between recruiters and on careers guidance websites. Business and Commercial awareness are a highly-valued skill in the current employment market.

Lateral Thinking

Lateral thinking is a business strategy that involves approaching a problem from a different direction. The strategy attempts to remove traditionally formulaic and routine approaches to problem-solving by advocating creative thinking, therefore finding unconventional ways to solve a known problem.

Team Work

As we say, team work makes a dream work. and so, in your MBA journey, working with a cross cultural team makes you highly empathetic, a leader and a true FIIBian. Teamwork uses the strengths of all team members, which can result in a better outcome. The added benefit of team brainstorming is a key advantage over individual work.

Critical thinking and Problem solving

“The illiterate of the 21st Century are not those that cannot read or write, but those that cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”-Alvin Toffler, Author and Futurist

We define critical thinking and problem solving as the broadly applicable cognitive skills that people use in constructing knowledge, identifying patterns, formulating arguments, and solving problems. To be effective critical thinkers, students need to be able to evaluate vast amounts of information and formulate well-reasoned claims

Numeracy and Computing skills

Being a postgraduate, it is a must to have analytical abilities. Having a mind frame to quickly analyse data and take decisions will help you be a better leader and a FUTURE LEADER

Career development is an exciting process. Your career development path is a progression made up of your college experiences, both inside and outside of the classroom, which enable you to decide who you are, who you want to be, and what career of choice best suits your personal needs.  Everyone’s path is individual and unique. There is no “right or wrong” because career development is a life-long learning process. The student goes through a carefully planned phase-wise learning process to achieve their aspirations. Continous growth of each learner is a priority for us and is achieved through designing a customized career development plan. We encourage you to actively participate and excel in your area of interest and expertise. Your first step is to evaluate where you are in that cycle. It’s a good idea to begin with self assessment and move through the various stages, but the amount of time you spend at each stage will vary depending upon your needs.
