Campus Star Ebin Abraham reveals the reason behind joining the PGDM program after getting through his banking exams.

1SCMS Cochin School of Business draws an interesting and diverse talent pool. Students from all over the country, year after year, stand out due to their unique strengths and achievements, which make them Stars on Campus. Ebin Abraham, in house “quantitative skills master”, is one of them. On the back of his skills, Ebin had already made it through the prestigious banking exams; but, he chose to do his PGDM with the institute. Here he tells us what prompted the decision that has already had a huge positive impact on his life.

Ebin is quite matter of fact about his achievement and also his decision. “Yes, I got through the banking exam but I realized that a PGDM degree is important for the growth that I want in my career,” he says. “There is a growing need for managers in the industry and a PGDM program prepares you for that. In fact, it has its advantages over MBA programs as well, because the curriculum is regularly updated to keep up with industry requirements.” These were some of the factors, in addition to the reputation of SCMS Cochin, that brought him here in the first place.

According to Ebin, studying at one of the best B Schools in South India has been a thoroughly enriching experience so far. He talks about the impact it has had on him, saying, “The IMLP program where we have to make presentations has helped me get over my stage fright. I have also overcome my inhibitions of expressing myself in English. There are a number of activities held in college, the management fests etc., which have boosted my confidence.” He definitely seems to have come into his own and is ready to make his mark in the industry.

He realizes that the next crucial stage in his learning process is the internship program. He is thankful to his institute for helping him bag an internship that involves a market study of TATA. Ebin reveals more, saying, “It’s a project with practical implications; hence, I expect to learn a lot from it. I believe the communication skills I have learned and leadership qualities I have developed will help me deliver during the internship. It’s an interesting period where I get to test the concepts I have learned in the practical world.”

Ebin is also mindful of the fact that the internship will give him an edge when he goes out in the corporate world as a professional. In many ways it can make him stand out from MBA graduates, too. “The main difference is that PGDM offers a three month internship while there is only a month long internship for MBA students,” he explains. “The substantially longer period of time gives you a better understanding of what happens in the company. It’s this comprehensive knowledge that I came here for and the program has met my expectations brilliantly.” Ebin concludes on an optimistic note – he is confident that his institute will help him achieve his professional aspirations.

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.

The Super League was the highest category followed by A+++, A++ and so on. Based on its overall performance in the survey, SCMS Cochin made it to the Super League of management institutes in the country. Thus today it finds its place amongst the heavyweights of management education in India and you can only imagine that it’s the decades of effort that has paid off.

The institute has always considered its faculty members as its pillars and this is one category where it has ranked in the top five. This particular ranking category took into account the faculty strength of a B School and the association of the head of departments with the corporate world and foreign universities.

Faculty members of an institute are also involved in Research and Writing Category that ranked B Schools based on the priority they give to publication of papers and books. SCMS Cochin was ranked 5th in the category. With senior academicians like Dr. V. Raman Nair, Prof. K.J. Paulose, Dr. Filomina P. George, Dr. C. K. Rajan, Dr. C. Sengottuvelu, etc. SCMS Cochin has been very discreetly building its faculty pool since years now.

The institute did brilliantly in the Curriculum and Pedagogy category too as it was ranked amongst the top five B Schools in the country once again.
