Mr. Sony Mathew enlightens students at SCMS Cochin about “future investments”

Students of SCMS Cochin School of Business recently had the privilege of listening to and interacting with Mr. Sony Mathew, Regional Head, Geogit-BNP Paribas. Being a leading name in the world of finance, Mr. Mathew is definitely the kind of person who has the ability to make a Finance classroom buzz with energy and vigor.

The Financial Services company that Mr. Mathew currently heads has made giant strides in the industry. He himself is considered an expert in the field and he offered students insight into capital market, the investment and stock market. “Wealth cannot be earned, but can be created through investment. Investing in good mutual funds or in blue-chip stocks will give you good returns, capital appreciation, safety, liquidity and tax benefit,” he said right at the onset of his talk.

He also listed some of the big name Blue-chip companies in the market like HDFC, TCS, Infosys and the benefits they hold for investors. However, Mr. Mathew was quick to point out the risks involved in investment equity and offered alternatives. “Mutual funds are a good option, especially if you keep in mind the risks involved. Mutual Funds are the financial investment tool that pools the money of investors sharing a common financial goal,” he explained.

Mr. Mathew also drew on the experience of Dr. Vijaykumar, investment specialist, who believes we need to invest early (E), regularly (R), Long term (L), Intelligently (I) – ERLI. Building on that thought further, he added, “We need to understand the goals we should have for a particular period of time. Risk factors in investment involve; high risk high investments and risk in the short term, but risks decline in long term.”

While the session had important insights for students who might want to invest for their futures, it also painted the larger picture for their benefit. Mr. Mathew remained optimistic about things to come when he said, “India will emerge as a superpower since there is a drastic positive outcome in the net profit of the country. You have the power to make a difference and on an individual level you can do that by investing systematically and intelligently for long term.”

The session ended with Mr. Mathew fielding questions from students interested in careers in finance. He talked about his passion for numbers, experiences and sought to inspire them. “Patient listening to your fellow colleagues, motivation and performance appraisal play a very important role in making a manager successful. You need to stand out from the crowd by updating your general and practical knowledge. Then the world is your oyster,” he concluded.

Admissions for the 2014-16 batch of SCMS Cochin school of business now open

SCMS Cochin School of Business has announced its admissions open for the class of 2014 – 16. Thus, the doors of the prestigious school will be thrown open once again to management aspirants from all over the country. The school offers five full time PGDM programmes that have been specially designed to meet the individual needs and aspirations of students. Now hopeful candidates get a chance to take the first step on the ladder of success by applying for one of the programmes best suited to their needs.

SCMS is leaving no stone unturned to make the admission process simple and convenient for aspirants. Prof. Filomina George, Chairperson Admissions, throws light on the new developments this year as she says, “Students can apply online or download the form and send it off by regular mail or courier. Forms can also be collected from the reception counter at the campus. There are multiple centres for GDPI selection – the Cochin campus and Kolkata – for the benefit of aspirants as well.” Besides the traditional DD payments, the school will also accept payments via Debit and Credit cards, and remittance through RTGS this year.

Over the years SCMS Cochin has been introducing well rounded academic practices that seem to be a hit with the students at the school. They go a long way in shaping good managers of tomorrow and offering students opportunities that help them learn from the best. For example, earlier this year the school signed an MoU with Decathlon SAS, a France based sports manufacturing company. The global giant is in the process of opening a massive sports retail outlet in Kalamassery, Kochi and an initiative like this can only be beneficial to students and future managers coming out of the school.

SCMS Cochin has also been facilitating international student exchange programmes. Students from the school get an opportunity to interact with their contemporaries from different parts of the world and share experiences, which makes a big difference to their overall growth. Given these initiatives carried out by the school, which are getting their share of publicity, it is only natural that aspiring students make a beeline for admissions as soon as they open.

The school has its own qualification procedure for admissions that will be followed this year too. Aspirants can take any of the National Level tests and the minimum score required is 50%. Graduates from any discipline with a 50% score or more, final year students hopeful of meeting the requisite criteria and those with relevant experience (they are also offered scholarships) can apply for seats at the school.

However, SCMS Cochin is also one of the schools that look beyond entrance scores when selecting its students. Emphasis is laid on attitude and willingness to learn too, as Prof. George explains. “We understand that students come from varied social, ethnic and academic backgrounds. Some of them might not have been from the best social, financial or academic set-ups. But their aspiration and willingness to learn is taken into consideration. They need special handholding so that they can be mentored through the programme.”

The school is also keen on teaching students a lot more than management concepts that they can use in their professional careers. In a bid to create future leaders and well rounded personalities, it has several initiatives in place to help students get the best learning experience. These are just some of the reasons why graduates from the school are known to be extremely industry savvy and have an entrepreneurial bent of mind.

Some of the celebrated names in the rich alumni list of the school include Estes Joes, entrepreneur of Jos Wood Arts, and Ms. Benazir Mukherjee, who started MoodSwings Jewelry and specialises in unique handmade pieces. Abraham Alapatt, another alumnus, is Head of Marketing at Thomas Cook (India) now, while Avinash Singh Bhambra, Manager HR with Zuari Agro Chemicals, has himself conducted training sessions in 21 states of the country.

The list is endless and these alumni have gone on to become glorious ambassadors for SCMS Cochin. As the admission process commences many more will hope to add their names to the list.
