STARS OF THE INDUSTRY GROUP
06 The curriculum at FIIB is developed and delivered using the following principles Outcome-Based Learning While designing courses and evaluation mechanisms, we start by identifying the learning objectives that students are expected to meet by the end of the course. These learning outcomes may be of knowledge acquisition or development of attitude/ability. They are clearly specified in the course outlines and linked to specific assessment criteria on which they get measured. This leads to complete transparency between the instructor and students.
Application of Theoretical Concepts to Real-Life Situation The overarching intent in design of the pedagogy is to introduce students to fundamental concepts and techniques in the classroom, to provide ample opportunities to apply this learning using simulated real-life situations, and then reinforce the same through additional discussions, feedback sessions, live corporate projects and interactions with practicing industry leaders. Academic Rigor At FIIB, learning is non-stop, intense and dynamic; through a fast paced and stimulating process, students are required to manage their own schedules between class, personal study and a variety of activities that happen on an everyday basis at the campus. Group Work and Presentations With the objective to develop collective decision-making, group responsibilities and persuasive communication skills, students are required to work in groups regularly and make presentations on assigned topics. Problem Solving and Decision Making At FIIB, the case study method, complemented by role plays, management games, etc., is used in all courses to help build the students' skill to effectively diagnose situation and recommend solution. Continuous Evaluation and Feedback Course evaluation is designed to assess learning amongst the students and two-way timely feedback is given for improvements. The faculty and the students work together as a team towards the overall improvement of both academic and non-academic affairs. Integration of the Curriculum Faculty collaborates regularly with the industry to develop joint courses to help students understand the linkage between functional areas. This provides an avenue to observe impact of decisions on organisation, people and society and deal with the repercussions of decision making in one area on the other. Global Learning Recognizing the need for our future leaders to operate in a global setting, all our courses provide relevant multinational inputs that help learn the best practices in differing socio, legal, cultural environments.
Innovation: A Vehicle in Turbulent Market Conditions FIIB believes in education that is rooted in practice and a course on entrepreneurial innovation was a step in this direction to equip young budding entrepreneurs/managers with knowledge to manage innovation and survive in turbulent markets. The course was delivered jointly by FIIB faculty members with their Dutch counterparts from INPAQT. The idea was to expose students to concepts of business modelling, innovation, and entrepreneurship, both theoretically and practically through various pedagogical techniques such as cases, computer simulation and group projects. FIIB believes that such endeavors will further strengthen the culture of entrepreneurship and innovation at FIIB.
07 FIIB boasts of a conducive learning ambience through its world-class infrastructure and state-of-the-art technology interface that complements the physical infrastructure to enhance the teaching and learning experience.

Corporate InteractionIn order to make the students industry ready and to enhance commercial awareness, industry lectures are an integral part of the curriculum. These interactions enable our students to apply their theoretical knowledge in a practical manner. Business Communication EnhancementIn order to equip our young managers to deal with the challenges of today's global economy, a simulated learning environment is created for the students to learn and practice the rules of the global business communication. Lay foundation of Teamwork and LeadershipBy participating in group presentations, conferences and activities, these students get exposed to a highly interactive working environment, which brings business knowledge to life.

22 FIIB emphasizes on learning through action. We encourage and empower our students to think out of the box, take onus of implementation, accept challenges, learn from their shortcomings and execute activities with responsibility. This process of learning through active participation is institutionalized by creating forums and action committees, that provide an excellent platform to strengthen managerial capabilities through practical application of life size projects outside the class room. A testament to the student driven culture at FIIB are the unique and myriad â€˜Beyond the Classroom Experiencesâ€™ that have now been frozen into the annual calendar. VIEW FROM THE TOP VFTT Leadership Series is a Forum where distinguished speakers discuss their leadership style, personal vision and strategies for success.

with the exchange students as we explored cooking and eating cultures of both the countries. I can sum up my experience as enriching and full of learning. ”

These are blended in a defined course of progression which ensure ample scope for student development and preparedness. ASHISH MANCHANDA
Utilizing this leadership platform of FIIB, I was able to showcase my ability to think out of the box. Coming up with multiple problem solving suggestions has been my biggest value add from FLP. Every session of FLP brought me closer to my goal of being an ‘Independent Thinker’. The importance of introspection was also a major take away from this platform.
Through the leadership platform of FIIB, I learnt the art of presenting facts and figures underlining the source. After all accuracy can be brought in only when we are aware of the efficacy of the source. This helped me walk that extra mile with ease and conviction while conducting research, sharing information and making presentations.
PRIYANKA SINGH Thank you, The FIIB Leadership Program! I was one of the select few to work for the NGO, ASER. This gave me opportunity to reconnect with my philanthropic side. With ASER, I got an opportunity to implement the classroom learning’s of HR into practice which acted as an eye opener.
FLP helped me broaden and widen my vision as I set my career journey. interaction with prominent people gave me clarity about future possibilities available to our generation.
Transforming a shy person such as myself into a reasonably confident professional is a huge tribute to the FLP. The program has helped me step out of my comfort zone and feel better prepared for the corporate experience that awaits me.
SUGANDHA ARORA I thought "getting good marks" was everything in academics. Through my course, I realized I needed more to achieve my goals. FLP motivated me to explore more possibilities and facets. Whether it was writing for the CSSAR website, an NGO that I was associated with during my FLP internship or give a presentation during the Finance Conclave, FLP groomed me to do it all. Thank you, mentors for giving me a better shot at success!
FLP took me through a self-exploratory journey, thereby bringing me to the platform where I could give a shape to my vision.
DHRUV MAHAJAN While academics was never a problem, I was not too comfortable with speaking or presenting in public. Through various trainings conducted during the journey of FLP, I was oriented to the art of public speaking and presenting facts in a convincing and credible manner. This gave me confidence which helped me while negotiating with the banks for creating gateways for donation for NGO.
I had always believed that leaders are born and cannot be created. However, this belief began to change when I got selected for FLP. This program enabled me to enhance my skills & empowered me with confidence, style and strategy that helped me lead effectively during the ‘Meraki Summit’- our Business Plan Competition administered by the UDAAN Club, which bagged the attention of all top B-Schools across the country.

Importance of flexibility, relevance of change and its adaptations are value additions which FLP has added to my personality. Working for an NGO through FLP gave me an insight into the responsibilities which modern Indian youth needs to undertake.
RAKSHET SHARMA FLP pushed me to the limit as I multi tasked between my c l a s s e s, p r o j e c t s, F L P sessions that ran late into the evenings, NGO project, corporate guest sessions etc. Today, I can work well even in tiring conditions and balance many activities simultaneously.
SHREESTI GHOSH During this journey of learning, I realized that just learning is not sufficient. To display that learning in an effective manner, using the right medium is crucial. Nonverbal communication is an essential element of over-all conversation ability. The FLP platform empowered me with the value of effective non-verbal communication, enabling me to improve my interpersonal skills, a critical element in the world of work.
GURPREET SINGH FLP has taught me the value of seriousness, dedication and achievement. It has helped me to overcome my weaknesses and apply my strengths to shape up my career path.
JATIN ANEJA Stage fright has always haunted me. In my first interaction with my FLP mentors I discussed this at length. In the b e g i n n i n g. I e v e n r e f u s e d t o participate in such forums. However, through exclusive interactions with corporate mentors, I was able to overcome this fear and today have showcased my skills to one of the top HR Consulting firms.
LIJIN JOHN I have been a little cynical all my life and have avoided introspection. Getting selected in FLP was a turning point for my self-awareness. I learnt to introspect. This led to a positive shift in my perspective. The NGO experience, which was a critical part of FLP imbibed in me the desire to contribute in meaningful ways to our society. My favorite moment at FIIB was the launch of FLP. The entire journey has been replete with learnings, but with fun. Trainings, Projects, Research, Work, NGO, experience, Mentor Interactions and Corporate Sessions were a few avenues created for leadership and learning. The opportunities were very helpful and shall be cherished for life.
UTKARSH GARG FLP has been like a launch pad for me for many activities- whether it was working for an NGO, Udayan Care; interviewing Alumni of our institute; working for my institute's conferences or working with Airtel for their Delhi Marathon. I have found many avenues to display my leadership skills.
I am waiting for the day when all of us get placed and I can throw a party for my FLP friends and also cook for them. I love cooking and photography, but FLP made me realize that I also love research. I have done lot of research for the NGO, ASER that I got an opportunity to work for.

My favorite moment at FIIB was the launch of FLP. This entire journey has been replete with learning but with fun.

People know me for my energy level and dedication. However, I am not sure of how to channelize this in the right direction. Through FLP Projects, I ventured into numerous projects and corporate interactions that helped me utilize this skill. The turning point of this journey was my selection for the Corporate Project with AON-HEWITT
