QS ranking for IIM Bangalore’s PGP

The Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP) of Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore, has been listed among the top 50 in the QS Master’s in Management Ranking 2018, released recently.

“We are delighted that IIMB’s Post Graduate Programme has been ranked among the top 25 Master’s in Management Programmes in the world. It gives us confidence that the various initiatives that we have undertaken at IIMB such as emphasis on research, innovations in teaching methods and focus on providing our students with international experience are in the right direction. Such global recognition also makes us committed to continuing our relentless efforts in setting high standards for ourselves and exceeding them,” said Prof. Sourav Mukherji, Dean of Academic Programmes at IIM Bangalore.

The rankings assess management schools, across the world, based on five different metrics, which are: alumni outcomes, class and faculty diversity, employability, thought leadership, and value for money.

Efforts towards strengthening IIMB’s research and teaching have paid handsome dividends by creating impact and enhancing the management school’s international reputation.

The PGP, Executive PGP, doctoral and Executive Education Programmes of IIMB are all well placed in global rankings.

Train 2 transform workshop

Oxford University Press, the world’s largest university press, organised a first of its kind workshop on Story-telling Activities for Classes 2-7 at New Delhi last week. The workshop saw participation from various CBSE affiliated schools and teachers across the city; the total no of participants being close to 50.

Train 2 transform workshops are a suite of enhanced and custom tailored single-day teacher training workshops that have been introduced as a part of OUP’s endeavour to give a fillip to Continuous Professional Development for teachers in India. The need for exploring and addressing emergent areas in teacher development stems from a perceived need for identifying areas for knowledge transfer and proficiency building by providing the necessary support to teachers. Despite the widespread practice of face-to-face teacher training workshops and the proliferation of digitised training packages offered by various agencies, OUP expects this brand of specialised knowledge transference to greatly benefit teachers looking for professional growth. The various globally trending topics addressed by these premium workshops include Flipped Classroom Strategies, Interaction Management in Classrooms, Using Technology in the Classroom to Hear the Learners, We are the World: Sustainable Development Goals, Art of Learning: Designing Teaching Aids, Story-telling Activities etc.
