SCMS Cochin to host a FDP on Management Consultancy from 26-27th Aug, 2016

July 6, 2016, Cochin: Consultancy Development Unit of SCMS Cochin will host a Faculty Development Programme (FDP) that will sensitize management professionals, in academia and industry to focus on management consultancies and opportunities it offers them. The two day FDP will be held on 26th and 27th August and has been organized under “Building Capacities for Consultancy Development & Knowledge Management with Partner Institution (KMPI)” programme of Consultancy Development Centre (CDC).

Management Consultancy is all about helping organizations improve business. It includes organizational change management assistance, development of skills, capacity building, process studies and analysis, technology implementation and other services. Unfortunately consulting as professional activity in management institutes isn’t explored the way it should be. The FDP will try to address that by emphasizing on the role of management consultancy services and the scope it has to offer.

Helmed by experienced professionals, the FDP will be ideal for faculty members from B-Schools, consulting firms, government departments, consultants and Corporates companies from different industry sectors. Modern, engaging training pedagogy will keep things interesting for participants as they get an overview of consulting and find out more about its process life cycle. The programme will also focus on consultant-client relationships besides ethics and professionalism in consulting.

Marketing of consulting services, proposal preparation and costing of consulting services, securing, planning and delivery of consultant assignment will be some of the other topics covered during the programme. B School representatives will benefit from the session based around consultancy in Management Institutes covering skill gaps. There will also be a segment on “Consultancy as a Professional activity of faculty members in Management Institutions” to look forward to.

Who should attend the FDP? The FDP is designed for faculty members from B-Schools, Department of Management Studies, Consulting firms, Government Departments, Consultants and Corporates / Industries.

Thus the FDP has something for all participants with their own requirements and focus. They will not only go home richer in knowledge and experience but with participation certificates from CDC, New Delhi and the institute too.

SCMS-COCHIN Is My Gurukul, Says Sairam

“Vanakkam” the typical Chennai welcome with hands clasped together and head slightly bowed forward – is the delight I felt when I first laid my eyes on the SCMS-COCHIN campus.

For physical places do matter, even in our digital world. And in business education they matter more than ever, because they provide space for people to come together amid their busy, far-flung lives. As is with chalk and cheese, coming to Kerala, was an entirely different experience for me. Yes, a sense of wavering self was there, having being born and bred in Chennai (my home for the past 21 years), but my fears soon got allayed once I embraced to what was to be my ‘Gurukul’ for the next two years.

Located in the lovely green environs of Kerala, amidst the traditional-feel Kerala style campus SCMS features digital high-definition auditoriums and tall trees, an attractive library with loads of greenery, state-of-the art infrastructure, and inspiring views to the river winding around it. A schedule packed with readings, panels, and talks; the regimen here is quite strict so to say. There is no time for a breather, and all other personal work and home assignments need to be carried out after college hours (after 5pm).

Needless to say, the exposure to the industry is great. There are loads of business experts coming in to deliver their experiences and practical insights in their respective fields. For instance, a lecture from an industry expert guided us through the practical approaches of team building and team formation in an office set-up. Not only the faculty have supreme knowledge and power over their subjects, they encompass a wide industry experience themselves. From DVD’s to videos, to other resources, they leave no stone unturned to show us exactly how the subject relates to real life corporate challenges. Another add-on is how the course-ware is structured; it is listed out for the whole year. Students know exactly which class will be conducted at what period and so to say, we can be ready for the next class in advance.

Further still, an online access to the library and a login and mail id on the internal campus-wide server has made life easier for us. Here we can exchange notes with other fellow students, and the faculty too upload any new notes, interesting research or information for us to use. Besides all, the fun aspect is also there. My weekend fun involves visiting nearby malls, hanging out with friends, watch movies etc..

That’s all and more the reason I chose SCMS-COCHIN as my Gurukul.

SCMS-COCHIN Trains Students Hard In Soft Skills

The management at SCMS-Cochin understands theoretical teaching is not enough for management students; their overall personality needs to be groomed. As they put it, “Our methodology is different from that of other business schools. Though theoretical inputs are essential to any business management program, we do not give it undue emphasis as others do. Our stress is on the overall development of the personality of the individual.” In keeping with this thinking, SCMS-COCHIN has introduced various personality development programs.

These programs work on the students’ communication skills, inter-personal skills, and analytical abilities and help build their confidence. It is important for a manager to be able to handle people and motivate them toward achieving their goals and these programs mainly focus on people management skills.

All the aspects listed above are essential for the overall development of an individual’s personality. Good communication skills enhance a person’s overall personality and help them put across their points well. Rigorous training is given to polish students’ communication skills at SCMS-COCHIN. Empathy is another quality required in order to manage people and it is also worked on at the personality development workshops.

The personality development programs at SCMS-COCHIN have been specially designed, keeping in mind the requirements of the current market. They are developed with help from industry experts and institutions specializing in these courses.

“We conduct a series of programs with external experts to develop and sharpen skills in communication, inter-personal relations, analytical ability, proficiency in public speaking, assertiveness, self-confidence, interview techniques and a variety of other skills that are essential for a manager,” said the institute.

SCMS-COCHIN is confident that a student who undergoes a two-year course at the institute would become an expert public speaker and will be an efficient manager in future. As they put it, “A student who completes two years of study at SCMS-COCHIN will be a consummate public speaker, an expert in effective communication and in human relations.”

 A special tuition fee of Rs. 4000 is charged every trimester for these programs, but the amount is definitely worth spending.
