Bengaluru, Karnataka, 26th November, 2014: Symbiosis Institute of Business Management, Bengaluru organized a street play at Forum Mall, Bengaluru to mark the anniversary of the terrorist attacks that shook Mumbai on 26th November, 2008 and to pay tribute to all the people who lost their lives. The street play was witnessed by onlookers in and around Forum mall, a prime location in Koramangala, Bengaluru.

The play, which was organized by SIBM-B’s Social Responsibility Committee in coordination with their dramatics club, Jzaa, focused on the theme of Humanitarianism- which emphasized on the ethic of extending kindness and sympathy and showing benevolence to all human beings. The play brought to light the ways in which we, as common people, can bring about a change and help curb societal problems by acting well within our power. The play depicted everyday scenarios which we face like spitting in public, urinating in public, apathy of the public during the event of an accident and rape. It also portrayed how the fast and busy pace of life had made human beings selfish.

Through this endeavor, SIBM hopes to sensitize the people of Bengaluru to the persistent social and civic problems that torment our society and bring to light, solutions that we, as common people, can implement by taking matters into our own hands in an attempt to make society a better place to live in.

Aditya Chiruthapudi, coordinator Social Responsibility Committee, said, “The annual street play endeavor has been SIBM-B’s way of conveying a strong message to the citizens that we are awake and ready to act to upon the troubles that torment our society, and so should you. It gives me great pride and satisfaction to work with a talented dramatics club in organizing such an impactful event for a social cause”.

Chetan Gupta, member Jzaa, the Dramatics Club, quoted, “Our purpose was to bring out and live every emotion of life and to make people aware and socially responsible towards the society. It was a learning as well as realization for most of the students which was appreciated by the audience during feedback.”

Rhythm Malhotra’s Internship Experience In Credit Suisse – SIBM Bengaluru

 

Like all MBA students, I wanted to do my Internship in one of the best of the organisations. And my dream turned into reality when I got selected in Credit Suisse for my Summer Internship. Credit Suisse, the name itself explains the brand, but how the name metamorphosed into such a top notch brand is what I experienced during my internship. I was selected as an intern under BMR (BASEL MEASUREMENT AND REPORTING) Department, Group Finance.

As an Intern, I worked closely with the IHC (Intermediate Holding Company) team in Pune which was working on the building of its infrastructure and was supposed to go live on 1st July, 2016. I was allotted certain balance sheet products to carry out the monthly preparation of the manual templates and thereafter uploading the same on the IHC system. I was also associated with the team in terms of carrying out the Internal Control Framework for regulation purposes in the form of detailed documentation for the team members.

The project was about assisting the IHC team of the company working in Pune, who were working simultaneously with the team based out of New York. The project was to understand BASEL III, its regulations and about IHC and its implementation.

My workday used to start at around 12 pm and usually ended by 9 pm. The daily routine comprised of working on the manual templates for the various products allotted to me and carrying out the documentation of the same. My mentor, who was the Vice-President of the IHC-BASEL III Reporting, used to take mentorship sessions before I started working on the allotted products and then used to review the work done by me. There used to be a two-hour conference call with the New York base team everyday wherein the changes in numbers were discussed.

There were regular connect sessions with the people in the top management, conducted by the company for all the interns, wherein they shared their industry experiences and provided us with valuable insights. Also, the work culture in Credit Suisse is so good that there were no restrictions as to when to work. It was based on the deadlines and the outcomes yielded. Also, the HR department was continuously involved as they went about Objective setting, Mid-review and Final review that used to be done along with our managers.

Not only my internship was enlightening but the icing on the cake was when I was awarded the ‘Best Intern’ for my project under the Group Finance Department. The overall Summer Internship was an amazing experience for me. I got to meet so many new people, make new friends and learn about so many new concepts that are helping me to carve a niche for myself in my MBA. I learned to be proactive and flexible and manage my time in the best possible ways. I still remember every day of those two months and for that, I am grateful to my college which provided me with the opportunity of getting an internship in such a big firm.

Also, last but not the least, Pune treated me so well. It’s an amazing place to live.

Ideas Beyond Imagination – TedxSIBMBengaluru

What happens when you put a social entrepreneur, a humanitarian, a musician, a retired army officer, a Jal Tarang player, a television personality, a professional Squash player, a techie and the world’s most followed Quora writer together? – It is simply Beyond Imagination.

This is what happened at the 6th edition of TEDxSIBMBengaluru that was hosted on 18th February, 2017 at Symbiosis Institute of Business Management (SIBM), Bengaluru Campus. With the theme this year being Beyond Imagination, TEDxSIBMBengaluru’s raison d’etre was to enkindle a sentiment that there is no limit to the creative ideas that can be generated.

11 stalwart speakers with illustrious careers gathered this year at SIBM Bengaluru to inspire the audience and students alike with their musings and cognitions.

What better way to start a TEDx talk than with an individual with a vision for the future – Mr. Samit Choksi, Cofounder of Thinkphi, a clean technology company. Mr. Choksi’s discourse was centred on his innovation – The Ulta Chaata, and the way discovery and continuous innovation can lead us to create a better society.

The second speaker of the day was Major General Gagandeep Bakshi who instilled patriotism in each person through fascinating stories during his stint in the Indian Army. As a leader of several life challenging missions, Major General G.D. Bakshi spoke about the importance of ‘Management by Objectives’.

‘Believe, Fight and Enjoy’ was the message that Mr. Saurav Ghosal emphasised on and spoke at élan about his journey to success. A professional Squash player, Mr. Ghosal iterated on the importance of perseverance, dreams and hard work to seize the moment and make each day count.

Mr. Sameer Dhanrajani, Business Leader at Cognizant focussed on ‘Analytics’, the technology of the day. He quoted, “Data is the new oil and ‘Digital’ is the new currency”.

TEDxSIBMBengaluru 2017 not only focussed on talks, but also provided a platform where the audience heard the spellbinding music of the rare Indian instrument, the Jal Tarang. Pandit Milind Tulankar mesmerised the audience with his mellifluous music which drove his statement, ‘Music is the best therapy for the soul.’

“I want to fulfil the dream of Mahatma Gandhi to remove untouchability in India”, said Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak during his discourse at TEDxSIBMBengaluru 2017. His beautiful message for the audience, among many others was, ‘If one person helps the other, the world will be a happier place.’

A touching quote can change mindsets in a matter of seconds or put you deep in thought. This is exactly how Mr. Deepak Solanki started off, “We began our journey not knowing where to stay, but with a confidence we began”. He aims to improve connectivity of the internet and data transfer and revolutionise the entire way of how we see the ‘Internet of Things’.

Mr. Balaji Viswanathan, with more than 2,70,000 followers & a million credits is the most followed author/profile on Quora, worldwide. His articles have been published in Forbes, The Huffington Post, Fortune and many more. He questioned “As time progressed, AI has made its presence felt even more. Who is going to be responsible for laws impacting robots and automatic beings?”

Ms. Sunaina Pamudurthy, a Social Activist, was a part of the Team NanoMADs, the first Indian Team to complete 18,200 Km Mongol Rally, spanning across 13 countries from London to Mongolia and 48 days on the road, in an all Indian car Tata Nano Twist. Her inspiring quote, “Fear is not the first emotion that hits me, it’s surely confidence” seemed to have raised the audience’s spirit of self-confidence.

Mr. Prakash Belawadi, a theatre, film, television and media personality enlightened the audience about the emergence of Interactive Cinema. He added that ‘Interactive Cinema’ will become the defining art of the 21st century where viewers would even get to choose the ending they like! He ended on an intriguing note – “What if the movie is watching you?”

Mr. Ehsaan Noorani, part of the iconic music trio of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, went on to brief the enchanted audience about the making of the ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ soundtrack over a three day trip with Farhan Akhtar. He added that he really connected with the theme ‘Beyond Imagination’ and described his childhood experiences and his love for music.

The organising team left no stone unturned to create the most magical artistry of sorts. The TEDx Signature board did not come by easy as it took 2700 paper cups, 50 bottles of paint, and 20 days of hard work, which poured in with just one idea, and the result – A masterpiece was made.

What happens when you put a social entrepreneur, a humanitarian, a musician, a retired army officer, a Jal Tarang player, a television personality, a professional Squash player, a techie and the world’s most followed Quora writer together? – It is simply Beyond Imagination.

This is what happened at the 6th edition of TEDxSIBMBengaluru that was hosted on 18th February, 2017 at Symbiosis Institute of Business Management (SIBM), Bengaluru Campus. With the theme this year being Beyond Imagination, TEDxSIBMBengaluru’s raison d’etre was to enkindle a sentiment that there is no limit to the creative ideas that can be generated.

11 stalwart speakers with illustrious careers gathered this year at SIBM Bengaluru to inspire the audience and students alike with their musings and cognitions.

What better way to start a TEDx talk than with an individual with a vision for the future – Mr. Samit Choksi, Cofounder of Thinkphi, a clean technology company. Mr. Choksi’s discourse was centred on his innovation – The Ulta Chaata, and the way discovery and continuous innovation can lead us to create a better society.

The second speaker of the day was Major General Gagandeep Bakshi who instilled patriotism in each person through fascinating stories during his stint in the Indian Army. As a leader of several life challenging missions, Major General G.D. Bakshi spoke about the importance of ‘Management by Objectives’.

‘Believe, Fight and Enjoy’ was the message that Mr. Saurav Ghosal emphasised on and spoke at élan about his journey to success. A professional Squash player, Mr. Ghosal iterated on the importance of perseverance, dreams and hard work to seize the moment and make each day count.

Mr. Sameer Dhanrajani, Business Leader at Cognizant focussed on ‘Analytics’, the technology of the day. He quoted, “Data is the new oil and ‘Digital’ is the new currency”.

TEDxSIBMBengaluru 2017 not only focussed on talks, but also provided a platform where the audience heard the spellbinding music of the rare Indian instrument, the Jal Tarang. Pandit Milind Tulankar mesmerised the audience with his mellifluous music which drove his statement, ‘Music is the best therapy for the soul.’

“I want to fulfil the dream of Mahatma Gandhi to remove untouchability in India”, said Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak during his discourse at TEDxSIBMBengaluru 2017. His beautiful message for the audience, among many others was, ‘If one person helps the other, the world will be a happier place.’

A touching quote can change mindsets in a matter of seconds or put you deep in thought. This is exactly how Mr. Deepak Solanki started off, “We began our journey not knowing where to stay, but with a confidence we began”. He aims to improve connectivity of the internet and data transfer and revolutionise the entire way of how we see the ‘Internet of Things’.

Mr. Balaji Viswanathan, with more than 2,70,000 followers & a million credits is the most followed author/profile on Quora, worldwide. His articles have been published in Forbes, The Huffington Post, Fortune and many more. He questioned “As time progressed, AI has made its presence felt even more. Who is going to be responsible for laws impacting robots and automatic beings?”
