The amount of knowledge in the world is doubling every ten years and with the end of the millennium it is now expected to double every five years. So if I plan to be in this knowledge explosion means that I should be facing with unprecented challenges and opportunities. How well I address that it would depend upon, in large part of our ability to adopt to the continuing changes. Project work like this gives an exposure to the practical and real life experiences of the modern market.
Management education narrowly thought is a tool to train one to get a good job and hence enables one to earn one’s livelihood. Management education broadly thought is a method, which inculcates knowledge in one about Planning, Organizing, Directing and Controlling. Moral and Ethical aspect of corporate world. This knowledge helps students to understand the corporate thoroughly.
This management education is given in meticulous way using different means of learning. A classroom study contains theory, case study and presentations. With it, we use library for secondary data of corporate and Project work as a field study for the primary data sources. With it we have co-curricular and extra activity for the over all growth of the student.
For management students practical studies is very important. It helps them to improve their knowledge about various market trends. Management students are concerned with marketing, finance, HR etc.
Theories do not teach unless accompanied by the working in original situations. This summer training report is also a part of our study.
