As the world embarks upon its journey towards fighting the second wave of COVID-19, students and their approach to studies have also had a major hit amongst all others. Business schools around the world have adopted online education as the premium source of inculcating knowledge. It is evident that by the passing day it is getting tougher to engage students or even ignite a spark to their creativity or innovation.
With these factors in mind, FIIB has adopted an effective educational approach, i.e. live projects, for creating real life learning environment for its soon-to-be graduated managers. With the help of its Marketing Communication department, approx. 8 students irrespective of their major of business degree (Finance, HR, Marketing etc.) were given a chance of having hands on training on Digital Marketing.
Viewing that Digital Marketing and Social Media Management are the need of the hour, students were included in all sorts of content generation exercises for all the campaigns and events held on various virtual platforms for the B-school, during the online semester. Students were given hands on knowledge of Google AdWords, Social Media Campaigning and Web Developing amongst others.
The idea of this initiative was to strengthen the scale of innovation and even apply the “quick response” approach, i.e. strengthening skills that are required for the business market today.
“Working for six months with FIIB’s Marketing Communication Cell is a great experience. I was able to sharpen my editing and creative skills, which is now not only helping me with my MBA assignments but also opened up new doors for me. The year 2020 has helped us all to acknowledge the power of Digital Marketing, and I am really thankful to FIIB for providing me this opportunity to turn this power into my potential.” - Rishabh Raj Rauniyar, FIIB MBA-Class of 2020-22
“I have always counted Public Speaking as my potential skill. But, coming to FIIB and then getting a chance to pursue my live project training under the Marketing Communication department have made me realise two more abilities that were undiscovered - Content Writing and Visual Designing. In the past six months, I have seen myself writing scripts for mega events, designing collaterals for college conclaves, managing conferences in virtual settings and whatnot. I am truly thankful to FIIB and its Brand Ambassador initiative that has helped me impart new skills. ” – Tanya Gupta, FIIB MBA-Class of 2020-22
