KONVERSATIONS – KSOM’s Bi Monthly Newsletter: November-December 2023

KIIT School of Management (KSOM), KIIT DU, carried forward all activities related to the academic semesters in November and December 2023 in all programmes i.e., BBA, MBA, and Ph.D. These months witnessed the completion of the autumn semester for both the MBA I and II and BBA II and III. While the autumn semester was full of co-curricular events organized as per the best practices at KSOM, the academic rigor during the semester was also in focus. Faculty members spent considerable time gearing MBA students for either internships or the final placements. KSOM has always believed that education can and does transcend the classrooms. To illustrate a practical concept of a Smart Village and the role of community development in initiating social change, students in BBA programme were encouraged to visit Kalarabanka Smart Village-a model initiative of our Hon’ble Founder, KIIT and KISS, Prof Achyuta Samanta.

KSOM was awarded the “Best Business School of Odisha” 2023 by TIMES Business Awards for its contribution and continuing legacy in imparting relevant management education. The award was a testimony to the credibility of the school in creating its own niche in management education over a period spanning more than two decades. KSOM also undertook novel initiatives to engage with alumni during this time-period through guest lectures and live projects. Keeping in mind the need for regular update in syllabus for both the undergraduate and post graduate programmes, a National Level Workshop for Curriculum Development was held in December under the guidance of Pro-Vice Chancellor, Prof. Tapan Panda. The experts in the workshop ranged from senior members of the corporate and academia.

The bi-monthly period also witnessed faculty and student achievements in curricular and co-curricular domain. Conference presentations, footprints in publications, conduct of scientific workshops were among the notable faculty achievements during this time. Similarly, students also left their footprints in debates, internship contests and cultural activities in and beyond the state. The autumn semester ended with its promise of yet another new and fruitful year in 2024. Continued efforts to live up to our legacy and take KSOM into the next level is a commitment from faculty and students alike. The new year will also begin with exciting events in the mega student fest and the annual International Conference for Management Research.
