In ABBSSM is one of its highlights and best practices. It has proved to be beneficial in establishing powerful international networks and associations to develop and mobilize aptitude, transfer of knowledge, and promote global research. The MoU’s, exchange of students and faculty, and lectures delivered by international faculty have produced postgraduates who are internationally knowledgeable and cross culturally sensitive. The student mobility has allowed them to adapt to different environments where the students are able to understand the connections between the local environment in which they live and the global scenario. At ABBS School of Management successful Internationalization means training students to approach their own cultures and traditions yet be sensitive to new ones and it is the process by which all the stakeholders contribute to the world while also being shaped by it. This has resulted in the ‘Self Transformation’ of students and faculty which has enabled them to see the world from vantage points not only allowing them to learn new cultures and countries but also hone their business acumen.
Industrial trainings and internships assist the students to practise their accumulated theoretical knowledge in the industry. Thereby students will be aware about the needs of industry to find employment in today’s challenging scenario. Students can go for internship during the months of February/March every year.
The student after the completion of the electives takes up various implementation aspects of the curriculum in the fourth and final semester. The Final semester predominantly consists of the Capstone Project and a four and half month onsite Industry Internship program (IIP) that enables the student to get a real time understanding of management issues in a live scenario. The industry internship program makes the student corporate ready as they get hands on learning in the industry under the guidance of the industry and faculty mentors. The IIP is mandatory for the award of the Post Graduate Diploma in Business Administration. Nine credits are allocated to IIP and therefore it forms an integral part of the curriculum.
