In SCMS Cochin School of Business, innovative ideas bounce mostly of the spring board of interactions between faculty, students, parents, industry, and academia. One Innovation in particular is the IMLP or Integrated Managerial Learning Program. The IMLP has complemented the academic sessions in classrooms, and is more-or-less a student-driven program, where students judge, help and push each other to nurture soft-skill and knowledge. It’s a regular co-curricular activity now. The beauty of IMLP is that every student and faculty of SCMS Cochin School of Business believe it is their baby; so strong is the sense of association! If IMLP is the jewel in the crown of SCMS Cochin, Libin – the Best Speaker for the 3rd time in a row – is undoubtedly it’s star.
Libin went to school initially in Dubai, and then in Jabalpur (MP). He graduated in Business Management (BBM) from Reva College Bangalore, picked up enough job experience in Bangalore before appearing for his MBA, and cracking SCMS Cochin.
“I chose SCMS Cochin over B-schools in Bangalore, because the super Manager in my past company was an alumni of SCMS Cochin,” says Libin in a self-explanatory fashion. “I had other friends who were alumni of SCMS Cochin. So, that gave me a personal bias towards this college.”
Clearly, the alumni of SCMS Cochin are doing a fantastic job in bringing in quality managerial talent to their alma mater.
“PGDM from SCMS Cochin has given me a great platform to hone my talent… that is if I have one,” adds Libin with an open smile. “It has definitely enlightened me about my flaws, and given me a chance to improve. I was not as disciplined as one should be, but SCMS Cochin has given me great sense of discipline. This has given me the necessary perseverace to nourish and grow my talents.”
With the onset of the internship season as the B-school calendar goes, Libin is ready to set sail for a SIP with Kotak Mahindra Bank.
“I’ve received a verbal confirmation…. just waiting for the formal letter, before I dash of to their office.
Libin choice of internship is interesting. He intends specialising in Finance in his Final Year at SCMS Cochin, so Kotak Mahindra is the right choice. But the project he has accepted belongs to the Marketing domain.
“It’ll help me try out all the management techniques and skills that have been imparted to us at SCMS Cochin,” he clears the air.
