Learning beyond classrooms provides an opportunity for students to direct exposure via live interactions to ‘feel’ how the manufacturing activity functions, in a corporate set-up. A two-day industrial tour to Silvassa was organised and conducted successfully for a group of students, comprising eMBA students of batch 2021-23 & PGP EMBA, PGP SBA and PGP EMBA Insurance 2022-24, accompanied by staff members, on 2nd & 3rd November 2022.
The students visited Alok Industries - India’s fully integrated textile firm with a dominant presence in the cotton and polyester segments, with world class infrastructure, best-in-class technology, uncompromising quality standards and dynamic product innovation. Next, they went to Classic Marble Company - India’s largest importer of a spectrum of stones world, totaling more than 150 million sqft to date. The students visited their exotic range of limited edition marble, onyx, granite etc. under the 9th avenue collection, is characterised by luxury and extravagance, converging into over 5,00,000 sq.ft. gallery. Finally, they visited the Bombay Rayon Company, a pioneering brand that weaves finely crafted quality fabrics, created from a huge palette of eclectic colours, designs and textures, for India and the world.
The IV was a blend of business and pleasure with an overnight stay at a leading local resort, where the students participated in various experiential learning activities, cooling off with a dip in the pool, a DJ night to let their hair down after wonderful Indian meals, all in all, resulting in perfect camaraderie, teamwork and lifelong friendships.
