For an all-round development

For an all-round development

The Acharya Bangalore B-School (ABBS) inaugurated the Acharya Business Club (ABC) on its campus recently. In an attempt to prepare the future leaders for their tough roles, the management institute has come up with the ABC. Under the umbrella of this club, six clubs — three specialised and three cultural – have been formed.

The specialised clubs are HR, Marketing and Finance and the other three are quiz, entrepreneurship and cultural clubs. Assistant professor Kiran says that such clubs are important for the overall development of the students.

He says, “Students have only 30 per cent of learning in the classroom. The remaining
70 per cent happens outside the class. Such clubs become crucial to mould students. They grow as individuals to take on the responsibilities only when they participate in activities outside the classroom and involve in role plays. Taking a step in this direction, we have launched the ABC. Students have been actively participating in all the events held by the club and we hope they will learn more from these activities.”

For students, it’s not just about learning while having fun. Being a part of the club is an ego-booster too. Joshua, a first-year MBA student, says, “I am just one month old in this college. I have been given the responsibility to organise the club events. This has really boosted my confidence. We have been introduced to students from different courses and got a chance to interact with our seniors. This is a good way of coming together and meeting students.”

He adds that ABC has also been instrumental in giving an opportunity to students to showcase their talent. “For one of the events, we did not have a photographer. A student volunteered to take pictures. The outcome was very nice and today, he has a professional camera and takes care of all the photography. The club offers great exposure.” Weekly activities of the specialised clubs take place on Thursday and cultural activities take place on Saturday.

Jomallik, a final-year student, says, “We hope to organise many inter-collegiate and national events through this club. The purpose is to prepare ourselves and tune our skills before we enter the big world outside the campus.”

Madhan MP of third-semester MBA, OP Varghese of first-semester MBA and Amrutha Varshini of third-semester MBA have been installed as the president, vice-president and secretary of the club respectively. Coordinators for all the clubs from senior and junior MBA batches have also been installed.
