I. An Integrated Awareness-cum-Communications Primer – IACP.
A once a week session of 2/3 hours for a group of 50-100 over 12 meets works the magic.
This is particularly useful as the MBA students are often found unaware on even basic issues and for lack of ideas,
are unable to handle GDs and Personal Interview questions along the same lines.

Each session has presentations-and-discussion by the students under guidance on as wide spectrum themes as:
- Economy issue
- Science/ Technology developments
- Latest/ Masterpiece Management Books/ Biographies
- a chosen Country studied threadbare
- Health/ Travel avenue
- Sports/ Interest for CV Building
- Political stories
- Persons in news
- chosen Business Websites/ Blogs
- Stock Market roundup
- Places in news
- chosen State/ City with full demographic number crunching
- chosen Company profiled deep
- chosen Industry analysed on Career options, Value Chain and 5 Forces (very useful as students are unaware on industry dynamics)
- Entertainment/ Fun events coverage

II. Certification in Recruitment Profession – CIRP.
MBA HR students, willy-nilly have to learn about recruitment. This 10 session program makes them hands-on expert in the art and science of recruitment. This also helps the college earn some revenue.
Naturally, the students stand to pass the selection process of leading Blue Chip companies

III. Creativity and Innovation Mindset – CIM.
This is very useful for all streams of engineering and various management specializations. Apart from sharing latest trends in various industries, techniques are imparted. The project work enables students to practically realize their learning’s value. Edward de bono’s and Roger von Oech’s approaches are weaved in this course.
