Our unique Training Pedagogies
COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS METHODOLOGY
PIBM has over the years made Training more Application & Logic Oriented where students are trained on developing Analytical Skills by imbibing Comparative Analysis methodology in teaching & training of Management Concepts. Building further on various methodology, students are encouraged to develop their research & analytical skills by making them to do comprehensive comparative analysis of selected products of chosen companies from selected sector. Data driven approach is followed by analysis and comparison between products, companies & sectors which is focused on various parameters using data derived from market like Financial Statements, Pricing Strategies, Product Quality, Market Penetration, Promotion Strategies etc.
Understanding the need of today's Industry and following the same path, our Mantra for training students on Business Management is - Learning by doing is Master Learning. At PIBM, Business Management Skills are built through strong 3-step Experiential Learning Methodology which incorporates learning from experts, simulation exercises & implementation on real life cases. This process of Experiential Learning involves creation of Business Environment followed by simulation of Practical Application of Business Theories
- Various cases on Financial Models, PMS Structures etc. are discussed by Faculty members who themselves have experienced it in companies during their Corporate Careers. Students are then assigned the cases for doing a thorough analysis and discussion during classroom learning using Comparative Analysis.
- Further training is provided by Corporate Heads, where they share real-life cases from their own companies related to domains such as Finance, Marketing, HR, Operations etc. Students also work on various real life cases and prepare various Financial or HR models or even design the strategies. This makes the understanding of practical application of Business easy and systematic.
- Students then visit SMEs especially those companies where processes are not followed, for implementation of their own models and strategies developed during training. This is then followed by feedback given from those companies ultimately helping PIBM students to do self-assessment of Theoretical & Practical understanding of Management Concepts.
THE LEARNING TRAINING JOB DESCRIPTION (JD) BASED TRAINING
We have conceptualized the Learning Triangle which is integrated with each and every concept of Subject. Every topic explaining the Business Management concept is aligned with Why, Where and Purpose. “Why” basically explains the significance of a topic or concept with respect to the Job Profile. “Where” explains areas where the concept or topic will be applied in practical scenarios. “Purpose” is where students understand how the topic or concept is aligned with their objective with respect to Placements. Students directly get acquainted with the Job profiles in Industry as well as the competencies required as per Job Descriptions.
