Way to Boardroom

IIM Visit

Brainware Business School provide opportunities to its students to develop knowledge, confidence and helps them build network. In this line, Brainware Business School forwarded an invitation to its students, Ms. Durba Roy Choudhury (BBA 4th Semester) and Ms. Ruchika Pandey (B.Com 4th Semester) to participate in one day workshop on entrepreneurship development centre network (EDCN) in West Bengal held on 23rd April 2018 at Tata Hall (Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta, Joka, West Bengal) organized jointly by Department of MSME & Textile, Government of West Bengal and IIM Calcutta Innovation Park. They visited IIM Calcutta along with Dr. A. N. Mukherjee, Dean, Department of Management & Commerce, Brainware University. Visiting IIM Calcutta itself is a great learning for a management student, and when it comes to learning from eminent faculty members of IIM Calcutta along with people from different prestigious institutes like, Jadavpur University and government officials it becomes memorable visit. This happened with the students who visited there. They got the opportunity to speak with learned teachers and entrepreneurs. They worked in groups towards common goals related to areas to be explored and practiced to motivate first time entrepreneurship among the youth. They returned with experience which they will share with other students who will also get the advantage of knowledge and they increase their confidence in public speaking.

Engaging with Society:

JD Birla International Conference

It was proud moment for Brainware Business School when two students doing MBA in their 4 semester name, Ms. Susmita Wadadar (MAKAUT) and Mr. Dhiman Dey (BWU) with finance specialization went to present a paper in 4th “J.D. Birla International Management Conference” to be held on Saturday 21st of April, 2018. The title of the paper was, “Role of mutual funds in today's investing environment. With special emphasis on HDFC 200 and RELIANCE 200”. The work was based on their research on mutual fund industry. They gained knowledge while doing research and developing a research paper out of the research. However, they returned with great insights and experience from the discussion on the area of study with eminent and global personalities in the area of research. Among other eminent and global personalities important people like, Prof Asok Banerjee of IIMC (Chief Guest) and Prof Ravi Jain of NUS (Singapore) (Guest of Honour) were present and they shared their wisdom. Research is key to learning. However, how to do a research is a skill one have to learn by doing. At BBS we provide scope, guidance and opportunities to the students to do research and come up with rich research based papers.

Campus Events:

Workshop on Yoga

Yoga contributes to healthy development and good mental health, helping to improve attention, self-esteem, empowerment and self-regulation. As a run-up activity to International Day of Yoga (IDY) on 21st June 2018, a workshop on Yoga was organized by the Brainware University at its campus on 7th April 2018 (Saturday) where Yoga was demonstrated to students for their well-being.

Health Checkup

For us at Brainware University student safety and welfare is our primary concern. It is our creed to provide the students with the means that would allow them to flourish in all the aspects of their lives; academic, physical and mental. We have all heard the old adage that a healthy body is the temple of healthy mind. Keeping true to this ideal, Brainware University has organized for a doctor to visit its Barasat campus on Saturday every week, whom the students can approach free of cost to get their ailments treated. We pride on being considered as a second home by the students, and we endeavor to give them all the possible amenities that would allow them to live freely and healthily away from home; simultaneously providing the guardians with some much needed peace of mind about the wellbeing of their ward.

One-day Workshop on e-Journal and e-Literature

A One-day Workshop on Training and Awareness for e-Journal and e-Literature was jointly organized by Brainware University and Brainware Group of Institutions-SDET at Barasat campus on April 14, 2018. The principal speaker was Mr. Mahendranath Sarkar, Training Manager, J-Gate of Informatics. He demonstrated how to navigate the J-Gate platform and explain its various aspects of research and development which would help students, research scholar and faculty members in their R&D work. Faculty members and students were participated in the workshop very actively. We hope that our students and faculty members must have found the workshop informative and worthwhile. There were many topics covered in the workshop. The primary goal of the workshop was to increase the user awareness which would benefit the users.

Sonic Boom

The grounds of Brainware University, Barasat campus was witness to a great bonanza of songs and breathless dancing on the eve of 24th April, 2018 as the popular band M-Sonic belted out numerous in-demand melodies and numbers much to delight to the students filling up the grounds. An evening unlike any. Lights! Camera! Lets Dance!

Quiz

Learning theory is important, but for management students learning application of theory is much more important. At Brainware Business School students are involved in different societies like, News Society, Research Society, Drama Society and Movie Society. On 18th April 2018 students belonging to News Society and Research Society planned a quiz competition for the students studying BBA, B.Com, MBA and M.Com. This is the first time when students planned the event, organized it and made it a grand success. Faculty members supported them in their initiative and helped them in framing the questions, its sequence etc. But it was a students’ event organized by students for students to participate. Quiz itself is a learning process wherein the team who finalize questions for the quiz learn current affairs, who’s who etc. and those who participate learn new things while discussing and answering the questions. Quiz engage people, create fun and expand the knowledge base of everyone involved in it. As students from commerce and management were participants, it developed harmony among students in different domains. As society members are from both undergraduate and post graduate courses in commerce and management, the event was instrumental in building team among the member students. With students participated for the event increased the expectations of the society members, the event was a hit.
