MMS 13 Orientation Day

24th August 2011 Rustomjee Business School welcomed its foundation batch of the MMS (Masters in Management Studies) Programme. The orientation day was an invaluable lesson in communication, group dynamics, knowing people, networking and much more.  After a brief welcome and faculty introduction session, Dean Dr Hanif Kanjer conducted an exciting ice breaking game called ‘Who am ?’ the game stood true to its name as the batch came know each other in a much better way. The effect was visible with a brief before-after comparison – when the batch entered, hesitant Individuals found their comforting corners and earlier acquaintances made clusters of their own but as the session got over the positive effect was evident as the students got out of their comfort zones and made new friends, as was the intention.

The institute has firm belief in ‘Doing’ thing along with learning and so the next sessions was dedicated to briefing the students about the various outbound training programmes the institute undertakes throughout the year. The students were tuned to RBS’ technology culture right from day one as the session that followed next was training on Google Docs, Groups, Calendars and Sites.

With the anxiety levels going down and the confidence levels upwards the First batch of MMS @ RBS  is all set to take on the next two years of learning, implementing and having fun as the orientation day lay the first foundations of the institutes motto of empowering leadership.
