As part of the consistent endeavour to instil students with practical exposure to the industry, special industrial visits are planned for BBA students from time to time. The industrial visits are an integral part of the teaching methodology adopted in the BBA programme. The idea is for students to practically see the management concepts that are taught in the classrooms. The purpose of these visits is to provide a glimpse of the actual processes and procedures to be followed at the workplace. It gives students valuable insight into what actually happens inside the mighty walls of an organization. Students are given the opportunity to observe the industrial processes, people processes and the facilities. Company officials also conduct interactive sessions with the students to give them inputs on the company’s or industry’s inner workings, the vision, mission, philosophy, latest offerings, etc. The students use such sessions to raise valid questions, clarify their doubts and quench their curiosity about the company or the industry.Thus, industrial visits aid in grooming the students’ business acumen, practical understanding and industry readiness, all the makings of a future management professional.

Students have visited the following organizations recently:

Yakult, Mother Dairy, Coca Cola, Anmol Biscuits, Bisleri

The industrial visits form an important highlight of the students’ campus activities and students look forward to such trips not just as a learning intervention, but also as a means of having some fun. Here are a few Kodak moments from the recent industrial visits:

On 10th October 2019, DME Management School organised a visit to Waste to Wonder Park and India Gate for second year BBA students. The department undertook this initiative with an objective to make students aware about the environmental hazards and issues. The Waste to Wonder Park is home to replicas of some of the most visited monuments in the world. But what makes this park unique is the structures that have been created from waste materials like scrap metal, discarded auto parts, procured from landfills of the city. The billboards placed in front of those monuments explained the history of these monuments. The students were also made aware about various kinds of pollution and how they affect the environment. All the 7 Wonders of the World were beautifully made and displayed in this park, namely, The Taj Mahal, The Eiffel Tower, The Colosseum, The Statue of Liberty, The Leaning Tower of Pisa, The Pyramids of Giza and Christ the Redeemer Statue. The students left no second to miss an opportunity to click photographs in front of their favourite wonder of the world and have fun around the park! After spending an hour in there, the buses took the students to the next destination planned for the visit: The India Gate.

The India Gate (originally the All India War Memorial) is a war memorial located astride the Rajpath, on the eastern edge of New Delhi. It stands as a memorial to 70,000 soldiers of the British Indian Army who died in between 1914–1921 in the First World War, in France, Flanders, Mesopotamia, Persia and elsewhere in the Near and the Far East, and the Second Anglo-Afghan War. 13,300 servicemen’s names, including some soldiers and officers from the United Kingdom, are inscribed on the gate. Designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, the gate evokes the architectural style of the triumphal arch such as the Arch of Constantine, in Rome, and is often compared to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, and the Gateway of India in Mumbai. A small picnic was held amongst the beautiful parks and fountains inside the India Gate to make the students relax and enjoy the weather. Everybody enjoyed and took photographs with their friends and teachers to make this trip memorable.

It was an exciting experience for everyone – if one thinks creatively for a good cause, one can create “wonders from waste”.
