  2. 2. On the eve of every academic season, I cannot help but think about introducing new pedagogies and becoming innovated in content and teaching/learning methods. Though this is easier said than done, we never fail to make our best efforts. The role of academic environment and the experiences of the faculty are critical aspects in management education. Every management school grooms students either to manage organizations or become entrepreneurs. There is nothing like a typical organization. Each organization has a certain character, size and its own challenges. You cannot groom students in a less challenging environment and ask them to work in a high-octane atmosphere. The point is, there is a need for reviewing the curriculum on a continual basis. The training provided must help students acquire relevant knowledge, reflect on their strengths and weaknesses and move up the learning curve. Our task also includes instilling confidence in them by helping them convert their weaknesses into strengths and providing necessary knowledge and exposure to help them understand the external environment. At National School of Business, our teaching methods and curriculum are constantly reviewed, changed and modified so as to keep pace with the dynamic business environment. In addition, we prepare our students to face the world with confidence by imbuing them with positive character, the readiness to accept challenges and a willingness to strive for excellence. We believe, thats the only way to bring meaning to management education. At NSB, every minute is precious. Everyone strives to deliver our promise to make you more valuable.

  28. 28. The Key Differentiator 2 Adventure Learning Experiential learning is the process of learning from experience. It is learning through reflection on doing. Experiential learning is related to other forms of experience-based learning such as experiential education, action learning, adventure learning and cooperative learning. Though, some of these forms of learning have relation with each other, they also have differences among them. In business schools, internship and job shadowing opportunities are some examples of experiential learning. In case of education through adventure learning, students are encouraged to participate in activities with perceived risks. This learning does not necessarily need to take place outdoors. At National School of Business, the focus is to encourage students to participate in trust building activities, problem solving activities and adventure activities such as rappelling, dry river crossing, rock climbing, water rafting etc. NSB focuses on different types of learning activities to broaden students knowledge base by encouraging them to take part in adventure education, shad-owing River opportunities, problem-based Rafting learning etc. NSB students participating in Jungle Gym Rappelling28
