|Industrial Visits 2018
Industrial visits! The term itself instils immense happiness and excitement in students. The idea of embarking on an educational trip encourages many. B-Schools today are largely adopting industrial visits as a value-added learning method for management students. Learning from textbooks, lectures and other study material is not adequate for holistic learning. Practical, hands-on learning is essential for better understanding of work processes and business functions. Industrial visits give greater clarity about important management concepts, as students practically experience how these concepts are put into action. These visits provide opportunity for active/interactive learning experiences in-class and outside the classroom environment. Students become more aware of industry practices and regulations during industry visits. Further, industrial visits broaden the outlook of students with exposure to different industries.
In keeping with the importance of industrial visits in enhancing the effectiveness of curriculum delivery in the classroom, RVIM has initiated a series of industrial visits for both first year and second year MBA students.
