The study and practice of business is incomplete without understanding and experiencing the effect of business practices on our human society and our planet. Corporate Social Responsibility is becoming a core value at most organizations today, and most companies in the Fortune 500 are following the tenets of the Triple Bottom Line: People, Planet & Profit.
MIBS has always fostered a culture of giving and sharing- evidenced by the many long-term CSR initiatives that we have undertaken in the past decade. Our objective is to inculcate the values and practices of CSR into every student who passes through our doors.
The NGO project, which has been a mainstay of the MIBS- MBA/PGDM program for many years, has also been redesigned in keeping with the objectives of the initiative.
Instead of taking up a project for a few weeks to obtain a certificate at the end, Our MBA/PGDM students will involve themselves with intensive, concurrent NGO projects. In this manner, they will be sensitized towards the need of CSR, and be able to experience and participate in the socially conscious business practices of NGOs, charities and foundations that are dedicated to the upliftment of people and the planet.
In fact, many NGOs have had their briefing sessions with the students where expectations are clearly laid out, and names Foundation have already confirmed their participation in the program along with many others.
The NGO project has been designed to be concurrent, allowing students to spend a part of their program schedule at the NGO project site, and actively participate in the operations of these organizations. Like every part of the program redesign, the concurrent NGO project is a full-credit course and performance in the project will affect the students overall grade.
