After graduating as an electrical engineer, I joined GITAM School of International Business to pursue MBA in International Business. This program has helped me to sense the fast changing business requirements throughout the globe and developing resilient businesses to adept to these changes. This insight developed an interest in me to develop skills pertaining to analytic’s and business process optimization. The course also conveyed the shift in business paradigm that factors
of production no more create sustainable competitive advantage and businesses today have become more customer centric. The only way for businesses to define their distinctive competitive abilities is to understand customers better. With human-technology interactions increasing profoundly, huge amounts of data are being captured and analyzed everyday which gives firsthand information about the key touch points of the customers. This is the avenue where analytics play a predominant role.
At GSIB, the students are given hands on training of various analytical tools like SPSS which develops an inclination towards developing business insights that are justified by statistical models and quantitative assessments because we believe that statistics + Intuition = better decisions. High level of academic integrity and extensive usage of facilities provided at the school can drive the career of students into data analytics which is growing at a very rapid pace. Being a student of 2013-15 batch, I got selected in a US based data analytics company as a market research analyst, which opened up new avenues of learning and a great career ahead.

It was great experience being at GSIB these two years, I have learnt many things and now when I look back I experience the change in me. I improved in terms of public speaking, anchoring, organizing and many more. I can also now recall that during my first presentation I was shivering with stage fear. I have learnt very good problem handling skills, stress management and how to meet deadlines. My internship was like a turning point which gave me a very good exposure and learning experience it always added towards my learning and helped me to learn and become better with every step. Main thing in GSIB is about placement, and in my first chance I got placed in NTT Data and I am very much satisfied with my Job and my parents also thank GSIB. The placement in GSIB was very good and almost all students got placed in good companies such as NTT Data, MAERSK, ITC, AXIS Bank and many such. I would thank all the faculties and non teaching staff for making me to reach this level

Hearty congratulations to Placement Department of GSIB in showing patience all through and putting hard work both from the students and the placement department. As I was the member of the placement committee I know in the starting it looked like quite an uphill task to place 146 students but our newly instated placement officer Prof A.V. Rao seemed very positive and confident and now when I see the outcome of more than 85% have been placed. I would like to thank the school and the placement cell comprising of Prof A.V. Rao, Mr. Reddy and Mr. Mohammed Ishaq for guiding students in terms of taking necessary steps before attending an interview till they seize the opportunity

The place is good and even the college is good. About the lectures they are very simple and can be easily followed. The teaching is very simple and different too. Some of my classes very informal like the business creativity one, its fun attending them.

I feel the best part of a student exchange is the opportunity to meet so many students from different countries and in that way the thinking horizon increases tremendously. I would say student exchange (they call it Erasmus here) is something one must experience will be very helpful for personal growth and coming out of the comfort and living in a foreign country to manage everything by your own with a smiling face is something one gets to learn and practice.

The classroom discourses are just good, and I have greatly enjoyed and learnt. The arrangements and facilities are of world class standards. I miss the food, people, colours of nature and beaches around the School. Three months is too short a time for such a wonderful stay. The experience and learning can never be forgotten. After attending the programme I am not the same person and I acknowledge that great transformation during my stay to the school. I wish to come back to India and the School once again.

Perhaps the greatest lessons I was taught as a student of GSIB were to always remain intellectually curious and ethically committed in a cross-cultural environment. It may get difficult at times, but we kept going. It was worthwhile and in the end made the most of the golden opportunities.

My favorite course at GSIB is Cross Cultural Management. The faculty makes it their job to teach students all about Indian culture through special demonstrations which is a worth-while and a life time experience.  The people here are very kind and helpful. We like it here in the campus as it is vast and beautiful and also pretty close to the sea

We have been to village for a social project along with all our classmates for collecting data about the oral health conditions of the rural people through a survey. Although we didn’t understand the local language, and so we silently watched, it is a great learning experience that what GSIB is doing great to help the local milieu

The study of International Business requires an depth study of global markets and their operation. What better way than to gain direct exposure to global markets, business and environment through a term at a foreign business School like GITAM School of International Business. It is a wonderful opportunity for any student to avail this program, stay at an exotic foreign location, learn what you see, feel and taste, and get pampered by your hosts for as long as it lasts
