Kollaborative Klassroom

Praxis Business School, Kolkata, India

The Praxis Academic Year 2014-15 starts on the 23rd of June 2014. On this day, we will be welcoming the 8th Batch of students for the Business Management (BM) Program and the 4th Batch of students for the Business Analytics (BA) Program. If this makes some of our alumni feel old, our apologies!!


The Academic Year starts with the 2 week orientation program. The objective of the orientation program is to introduce students to:


  • A flavour of the courses offered.
  • Each other and
  • The habits we expect them to inculcate during their stay here.


Hence, the day will typically consist of:


  • Introductory sessions of subjects of different functional areas (for the BM and BA batches).
  • Primers on topics where the student has to hit the ground running (Excel in some detail for the BA batch and in lesser detail for the BM batch, Remedial Math for the BM batch).
  • Introduction to key business and economic parameters & trends, cutting across industries and this will be done by General Awareness (GA) Sessions.


This year, we are introducing a new intervention. We are allotting 30 to 45 minutes in the evening for what we call “Alumni Sessions”. These will be handled by the alumni in Kolkata.  

These will be organised across industry verticals or functional areas and these verticals / functional areas have chosen themselves based on the availability of alumni in the city. Given the above, we have chosen the following companies:


  1. IMRB International.
  2. Titan Industries.
  3. ICICI Bank.
  4. Zomato.
  5. mJunction.
  6. Deloitte.
  7. PwC.
  8. Indusnet.
  9. Advent Brand House.


As you can see, some of these companies have a sole representative whilst others have quite a few representatives. What you are required to cover in your session is:


  • Describe the roles offered in your company – and describe what you do.
  • Describe the kind of person who will do well in these kinds of roles.


Do not make the session too formal. Don’t let it degenerate into a gas session either. Keep a right mix of formal and informal.


Ideally, we can have 2 to 3 companies slotted for a day. These sessions will start at 7 PM and be on any day between 23rd of June to 3rd of July. Speakers are cordially invited to stay on for dinner thereafter.


Students working in the above companies are required to contact me ASAP for their desired slots.


Welcome back to Celebrate Your Worth again!

For the record, this initiative is the idea of Mr. Harish Dalwaipattan and Mr. Amartya Banerjee ( who has just joined Team Praxis).
