Open – Ended Programmes

A true professional is a ‘Perennial Learner’ first. ‘Learning’ is perceived as a life-long activity and is much beyond just graduating or obtaining degrees/ certifications / charters or even learning many skills on-the-job for a living. Learning philosophies stress on the element of ‘Learn to Learn’. The Continuing Education Programmes (CEP) in any integrated school / institution, is an outreach initiative, whereby the in-house faculty strength is showcased to the ‘user groups’ in the larger society by way of knowledge sharing. This could take the form of conducting Conferences, Seminars, Management Development Programmes (MDPs), Faculty Development Programmes (FDPs), Organisational Based Programme (OBPs), Workshops, Conclaves, Summits, Symposiums etc. The major objective through these CEP initiatives are that the working people / professionals can enhance their skills, perspectives, methods, practices etc., and remain highly productive in their work. It is aimed at continuous learning for the trainer / teacher and the taught and also has a corollary benefit of an extended shelf-life of one’s skill-sets by properly tuning it.

GSIB for the academic year starting July 2018, embarks on conducting atleast 17 CEPs in the different frontier areas of the international business domain with relevant and quality programmes as its essence. This gives an enormous opportunity for the participants / User-groups to interact with our faculty who have cutting-edge skills in their interest areas. Thefinalisedlist comprises of 5 Conferences, 4 Seminars, 3 FDPs, 3 Workshops, 1 Conclave and 1 Summit. The schedules and the timelines of each of the above referred programmes with details can be found in the subsequent pages of this Brochure. I request the Companies, Academics, Students and other User groups to make use of the programme by nominating and participating. You can also get clarified on the finer details if any, from Dr. Radha who holds the CEP Chair in GSIB or the Program Director of the respective programmes.

I am sure the scheduled programmes will help you grow in your work and sharpen your skills / perspectives.
