JSPM NTC MBA department came across a challenge of rendering practical knowledge which was limited because of classroom teaching pedagogy. To match with the global market demand a need to impart practical knowledge for the same rose. This issue led to the brainstorming session amongst the department head and management. After some long discussions in the meetings, emerged the concept of Practical labs in management department. This concept is one of its first unique concepts to be established in Institute. The idea behind creating such labs is to train the students about current trends in corporate world along with preparing them for the corporate needs. This will help to bridge the gap between educational outcome and industrial requirement of intellectual capital. The labs to be established comprises of Finance and Marketing Lab by the name “Space with D2” where one D represents Mr.C.D.Deshmukh (First RBI Governor for Government of India) and second D represents Prof.Peter Drucker (Founder of modern Management and Marketing management Consultant).In this Lab the students will come across finance and marketing aspect and will equip themselves with practical know how of the concerned discipline. Adding another feather to the development of the lab is the establishment of Human Resource Management and Personality Development Lab by the name “Mind Tree”. In this lab the students will learn the techniques to self groom and rebuild their image and confidence through learning and practically practicing required skills for self development and image. Along with self image building the student will also learn the corporate managerial operative functions to be carried out. Such simulation labs will definitely close the gap between the student awareness for the current requirement from the industry and their level of preparation for the same. The students will get a corporate feel and they will learn established concepts and will attempt to develop new ideas, process, thought process, confidence, professional attire, ethics and attitude. The achievement of JSPM NTC department will arise at a much needed greater pace and the outcomes of these labs will be young dynamic managers and entrepreneurs.
