The MYRA Learning Experience
“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” If you can fathom these words of the celebrated author William Arthur Ward, you can relate to what is being practiced at MYRA and which indeed is its USP.
I had worked for exactly three years at Oracle during similar time last year when I realized I wanted a business education to complement my technical skills. In my search for a perfect business school I came up with a relatively new institution and immediately fell in love with its beautiful campus.
I was really intrigued when I first learnt about the teaching methods followed at my chosen school, the MYRA School of Business. The model is popularly called the Immersion and the Experiential Learning model. No wonder, the oddity of the concept tugged the inquisitiveness of a typical Indian university graduate like me, and introduced an element of curiosity. This curiosity led to an extensive research and I was delighted at my findings and understood what MYRA is offering. Couple of months into it now, proudly wearing the insignia of a MYRAcle (as we audaciously call ourselves) I feel I have made one of the most important decisions of my life joining the MYRA School of Business!
MYRA’s unique teaching model exposes the students to a vast encyclopedic knowledge and expertise of its globally acclaimed faculties. It literally immerses the students in a single course for two weeks at a stretch. During this time, we do not take any other courses and completely align our focus to a particular management course that caters to 4 hours of class each day. The Experiential Learning model emphasizes one to learn to use what he learns in his subjects. It focusses on the experience one gathers while pursuing the course and the post-coursework analysis of how we could have done better. The model is more about absorption and discovering your inner self – as the Italian genius rightly said, “You cannot teach a man anything, you can only help him find it within himself.”
MYRA’s distinctive pedagogy helps a student bridge the knowledge gap and prepares him for tomorrow’s highly complex business environment. The exposure the faculties bring to a MYRA class, the aura the architecturally superior MYRA campus creates and added to this the array of industry interactions we have through our CXO Lecture series and the Pre-placement talks – the overall experience that MYRA gives you, stays with you, for life!
It’s only a few months of my MYRA life and I look forward to MYRA as an inspiring platform to realize my true potential and guide me to the horizon I actually want to go to.
