Rigorous curriculum at KSOM leads to Personal Development
What do you look for while choosing an institution-quality of faculty, infrastructure, ranking, curriculum, and placements? These would figure in almost any list while choosing an institute. KSOM excels on these parameters. It constantly figures in the top 50 business schools in the country (http://ksom.ac.in/the-institute/about-us/rank-and-recognition ) and has a curriculum designed to provide a holistic experience to students through classroom learning, role-plays, business simulations, live consultancy projects, summer internships, workshops, research, club activities, and interaction with business leaders.
The two precious years that students spend at KSOM are meant to equip them with the requisite skills and turn them into professional business executives and managers, who are adept in navigating through the challenges of the modern world. Integral to this training is personal development of students. Working their way through the several assignments, research projects, workshops, presentations and the like, students undertake a fruitful journey of self-discovery and find things about themselves they otherwise wouldn’t know. At KSOM, students are pushed to come out of their comfort zones and break walls that restrict them. The culture of openness and free thought ensures that students are free to express themselves.
Unique Mentorship Program at KSOM
In pursuance of the aim of personal development, at KSOM, each student is attached to a faculty mentor for two years to ensure academic and emotional well-being of the student. (http://ksom.ac.in/campus-life/mentoring-and-student-development/mentoring/) In addition to this, second year students are also attached to first year students as mentors to help them, especially during the initial time. This unique mentorship program makes the students feel comfortable and motivated throughout the course.
KONFIDANT – The Corporate Mentorship Program of KSOM
In addition to this, KSOM provides an extra edge to its students with its Corporate Mentorship Program called ‘Konfidant’. The program connects students to industry experts, who act as mentors to them. A small group of students is placed under the guidance of a mentor, who mentors them about important areas such as personality development, communication, placement process, handling interviews, career counselling, job opportunities and so on. http://ksom.ac.in/ksom-organized-a-program-called-konfidant/)
The program is designed in a way that the interaction continues in the long-term over email, messenger and telephone, which enables the mentors to closely monitor the progress of their mentees. The program keeps the students in sync with the industry expectations and ahead of their competitors. (http://ksom.ac.in/konfidant-the-corporate-mentorship-program-of-ksom-valedictory-session/)
